Shu Uemura Holiday Collection
Tuesday November 09, 2010
Last Christmas I had the same fits due to their holiday collection being a team up with Tsumori Chisato and ended up snagging that kitteh mirror! I actually carry this mirror with me in my “daily makeup” bag to work every day. :D

Aya Takano Collaboration
This year’s match up with Aya Takano is even better I think! :girlrage: I knew her work from Zipper magazine. She used to do these calendar pages in the back of each issue and they were so beautiful with the half naked, blushing girls and heart breaking scenes.
Here are a few examples I had scanned in from the Zipper calendar art.
So here’s the collection! It includes two GORGEOUS :twinklepink: eyeshadow/blush palettes, a blush tint, some sparkle eyeliner “crayons,” a brush set, lip glosses, face cleanser, and 2 sets of lashes.
The official xmas page for the collection is here. It includes a really cute “pop it” style game and some icon maker for your twitter account. There are also 2 videos and product listing on the page. :kyaaface:
I went ahead and ordered the bowwow! magic queen palette this weekend. I remember last year by early December everything was sold out on the official website!!! >O Mike ended up surprising me with the mirror because he actually found it still for sale at Barney’s! HOWEVER! Since this past July Shu Uemura has pulled out of the US market except for their Official US Webstore. There’s rumors of that eventually closing down too. I feel like this might be my last chance at one of their holiday collection palettes.
Though I’m glad I waited. I think the colors on this year’s palettes are slightly better than on the Tsumori Chisato collection. :faceaha: I had a REALLY HARD TIME choosing between the bowwow! magic queen palette and the reindeer kiss xxxx palette. I was initially drawn to the cooler colored palette reindeer kiss one first! :upheart: It screams winter to me! The frosty colors and bright pink cheek. But in actuality, wearing minty green & blue isn’t an easy day-to-day look. Well for me, in my mind, at the office.:eep::smallcry: :F I really loved the warmer colored bowwow! one too and it seemed a tad more practical and I felt I would actually use it MORE. Like, every day all season long!
And derpderpderp I wanted the lashes first and foremost!!!!!! Hahaaha, they come all whispy with glittery stickers to put on them! Too cute! :iiface: But, um, yea, cost X’s practicality… I went with a makeup palette :)
Mmmm, Pretty~~ hehe :star: *_* :kissyheart:
