This year’s holiday collection from Shu Uemura was designed by Japanese fashion designer Tsumori Chisato featuring a “wish upon a star” theme with the most adorable stars and cat design.
I was smitten with the Highlighter Duo which comes in a cute mirrored compact with a cat design imprinted on the powder. The shimmer is finely milled and has decent pigment but isn’t too sparkley.
The Jupitor Brown lipstick also caught my attention because of the packaging. It’s not quite as brown as it looks on the Shu Uemura website and goes on a sheer rosey-brownish color. It has golden shimmer which makes it look slightly peachy in the photograph. It comes in the unlimited formula which has a slightly glossy finish on the lips. There are 2 other lipsticks for the collection, but unfortunately, I believe they are an Asia exclusive.
The 2 items I picked up with pictures of the packaging:
There were a couple eye/cheek palettes I passed on. The glow on blushes in each palette were pretty, but the combination of colors just weren’t me. Check out the rest of the collection on Shu Uemura’s Website!
