First release available from Shu Uemura from November 1, 2021 (full details at bottom of page).
Christmas coffret (gift packs) as they are called in Japan, are HUGELY popular and warrant their own post each year, with the Japanese love of gift giving and shopping each beauty brand vying for shoppers attention. It is now doubt that Shu Uemura are the OG of fun limited edition collaborations, each year they create something that quickly becomes the must have for the season (remember the bright colourful collar with famous Japanese artist Murakami in 2016? I DO). So let’s have a look at what is available this year and don’t hesitate! They will be gone before you know it!
The life of the party is the “Rock the Party” Eye Palette (9,900 yen) it appears to be the perfect Hello Kitty shaped evening handbag complete with delicate gold shoulder chain, open to reveal 10 gorgeous Shu Uemura eyeshadow shades, from glittering mirror ball silver and vibrant purple hues just made for the dance floor, to neutral peach and earth tones for subtle glamour and have everyday appeal.
Never ask a woman why she needs another lipstick! Central to an upbeat party mood is looking and feeling the part, and a bougie lipstick is then quick and easiest way to transform to a nighttime look. There Rouge Unlimited Disco Gritz lipsticks are made to party with the statement Hello Kitty ribbon design imprinted into the lipstick bullet.
With the focus on a killer party pout, the 2021 release Kinku lipstick range has also had the Hello Kitty treatment with two popular shades from the permanent range (Brick Fever and Red High-Heeled) and one limited edition shade (VIP Auburn) receiving the cute Hello Kitty disco treatment on the chic glossy black lipstick case (4,070 yen each) . The Rouge Unlimited Kinu Cream (4,180 yen each) liquid lipstick is also appears in two cocktail inspired shades- Peach Martini and Apricot Colada!
If skincare is more your thing or (if like me) you just LOVE the Shu Uemura Ultim 8 Sublim Cleansing Oil (IYKY!) then run don’t walk to grab one of the limited edition Hello Kitty designs- available in small (150ml, 5,060 yen) and large (450ml, 12,650 yen). KAWAII!!!
