Shu Uemura & Takashi Murakami Holiday 2013 Heart-Full Pink Parallel Palette Review + Makeup Tutorial

Shu Uemura's Holiday 2013 collaboration with famed artist Takashi Murakami is too adorable for words. The magical graphics make for truly collectible makeup products, and the theme of Black Princess vs. Pink Princess explores duality in the most feminine way possible.

The collection is quite large, but the Heart-Full Pink Parallel Palette for Eyes and Lips is definitely the star of the show from what I have tried. I've been playing with it for two weeks now, and it still pleasantly surprises me because it is so much lovelier and more wearable than I expected. The perfectly curated colors and phenomenal textures — as well as limited edition status — convinced me to splurge on the Enchanted Black Parallel Eyes and Cheeks Palette. I ordered it this weekend, so it should arrive sometime next week (and yes, I will share the swatches). For now, let's marvel at the beauty of the darling pink palette!

Finally, the tutorial below features the Heart-Full Palette as well as other products from this covetable Holiday collection in action. It is a sweet and youthful, easy-to-wear makeup look that brightens up the whole complexion. I hope you enjoy it!

BOTTOM LINE: I highly recommend the Heart-Full palette, but do check out the rest of the collection on! Happy shopping, everyone!

  1. Incredibly adorable packaging. The palette seems more springy/summery though

  2. Hello- This is my favourite holiday collection this year! - I recently reviewed both palette and as you said surprisingly wearable - trying not to get the lip & cheek products too! xx

  3. Hi! Rae,
    I can't find the Shu Uemura Heart-Full Pink Parallel Palette on their website, are they sold out of it?

    Kind Regards

  4. Hi Rae,

    Would you recommend the travel brush set?


  5. The lashes is too pricey in my country

  6. Hello Rae!

    Did you also bought the other palette? if yes, can you make a review about it as well? :)

    Thank you!
