Shu Uemura Holiday 2009 - Wish Upon a Star

I haven't talked about Shu Uemura cosmetics on this blog yet, but I'd like to introduce you to the brand.
"Renowned for his masterful makeup artistry since 1958, Mr. Shu Uemura helped pioneer the concept of the makeup artist, merging makeup and art through his bi-annual mode makeup collections and on-stage makeup performances. each of shu uemura's products embraces elements of art, nature and science through original packaging, unique textures, key ingredients and ground-breaking product formulas."

This high quality and original brand is most famous for their covet worthy eyelash curler and cleansing oil, however their blushes and eye shadows have a loyal following as well.

Japanese fashion designer Tsumori Chisato created the limited edition "wish upon a star" Holiday collection. Tsumori’s favorite Japanese icons "twinkle star" and "lucky cat" are featured in the collection and sybolize good luck. Two of my favorite things, kitties and makeup!

The collection is comprised of two limited edition palettes, Planet Cat Couture and Radiant Ribbon Couture. ($65 each)

Limited Edition Duo Color Highlighter Golden Snow ($45), who can resist a palette with a kitty imprint?

Limited Edition Gloss Unlimited Mini Trio set + pouch ($45) and Limited Edition Rouge Unlimited Lipstick in Jupiter Brown ($25)
