Shu Uemura Holiday '08

If you liked Shu Uemura's 25th Boutique Birthday collection with the 7-colour eyeshadow palettes, I'm sure you will be just as incredibly excited as I was to see these pics from Voce of Shu Uemura's Holiday '08 collection!

The collection is a collaboration with popular Japanese photographer Ninagawa Mika and it features floral-themed prints by Mika on the covers of the palettes. It looks like there will be 3 palettes, a brush set, a traincase and some lipsticks in the collection. The red rose print may be a bit too gaudy for some people's tastes but I like the vibrant hues of this collection, definitely a good break from the usual gold/silver palette that has been done to death in holiday collections. Shu is at its best when it does collaborations with Japanese artists. My pink Shu by Ai cleansing oil bottle still occupies pride of place on my bathroom shelf!

According to her website diary, Mika will be visiting Taiwan for a PR event for the holiday collection to be held at SOGO Zhung-Xiao Event Venue in SOGO department on 12 September.

Hey Kathi!

Thanks for stopping by :-) My Fleur de Source palette has been relegated to the rarely-used pile for the past couple of months. Think I used it max three times. The texture was great but the colors weren't the best for my skintone. I hope the holiday palettes will be better in that respect!
