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!
