We Wish Uemura Christmas and a Happy Shu YearPosted: December 12, 2008
Shu Uemura has partnered with Japanese photographer and film director Mika Ninagawa to create a holiday collection of makeup that evokes the rich palette of nature as captured by Ninagawa's photographs. The Mika Loves Shu Holiday Collection 2008 consists of three eyeshadow palettes ($65 each), two nail polishes ($16 each), three mini eyeliner pencils ($35 for the set), two sets of three Gloss Unlimited lip glosses in a cosmetic pouch ($40), three Rouge Unlimited cheek colors ($23 each), a cosmetic bag ($29), and a portable brush set ($85). The colors run the gamut of deep earth tones of black, brown, and green, to rich jewel tones of sapphire, amethyst and garnet, to bright tones of chartreuse, pink, yellow and orange, and everything in between. The eyeshadow cases feature Ninagawa's photography, as do the Chrysanthemum cosmetic pouch and the case for the portable brush set. The Holiday Collection also features four sets of false eyelashes.
The Mika Loves Shu Holiday Collection 2008 can be purchased online as well as at the three Shu Uemura boutiques, in San Francisco and Costa Mesa, California; and the one right here in Boston on Newbury Street.
