I did this look way back in November and I wasn't too happy with it. I had just gotten both my hair done and eyebrows microbladed and things were just super dramatic. I wasn't sure which colours went well with my darker hair and as it turned out, the Cosmicool palette was a MUCH better fit for me which is why that look went up instead! Looking through these photos the other day, I realized that the Murakami Cosmic Blossom Eye and Cheek Cosmikawaii Palette ($85.00 CDN) is such a pretty little peach in a basket that it would be a shame not to share some swatches at least!
I say this every year about Shu Uemura's holiday collections, but really! This year's is the cutest! If you would like to see my thoughts and makeup look for the Cosmicool palette, click here, but for now let's dive into the Cosmikawaii palette!
The Cosmikawaii is full of warm tones, like a sunset, but then you see those purples and think maybe not? I debated between using the purples for my look, but the reds and oranges won out because I secretly would wear those shades all the time if I could!
The palette comes with a large orange blush, 3 metallic, 1 matte and 3 shimmery shadows. Everything swatched beautifully with the three shimmery shades acting more like "toppers".

Final verdict: Another solid palette from Shu and though these shades are not working with my hair colour right now, it doesn't change how pretty they are! I think I can probably make the purples work, so it's nice to know that this palette can swing so many different ways. I also love that this was a palette for the holidays and not for Spring or Summer and I can never get enough of an orange blush!
