Surprise – 'It's-a Me, Mario!'
It’s that time of year again when brands begin to release their holiday makeup collections and video game fans are going to love this year’s offering from Shu Uemura. The brand has collaborated with big names in the past such as Takashi Mruakami, Karl Lagerfeld, and Victor & Rolf, but this holiday season they are releasing a Super Mario collection that you won’t want to miss!
Both Shu Uemura and Super Mario Bros. pioneered new creative chapters for Japan as well as culture revolutions across the globe. For example, Mr. Shu Uemura introduced cleansing oil to Japan back in 1967 which resulted in a beauty phenomenon! The brand continues to break boundaries when it comes to beauty with this totally original collaboration where pixelated Super Mario Bros. characters appear on makeup and skincare products for the ultimate beauty game.
The nostalgic collection will be available on October 1st! You can also check out a sneak peek of the collection on the Shu Uemura Facebook page where the National Education Manager reveals the entire collection! The collection consists of:
