Tsumori Chisato for Shu Uemura

This is a rather late post and despite wanting to be on top of the fashion news, this is so old that the products are already available in both Japan and the US. However, the products are simply too cute to not blog about.
Like the title above, Tsumori Chisato (a famous Japanese fashion designer) has designed a special collection of cosmetics for Shu Uemura. The resulting collection is heavily influenced by her F/W 2009-2010 collection: she had taken inspiration from the famous children's book, "Le Petit Prince"by Antoine de Saint-Exupery and the starry sky for the packaging.

Considering that she focuses alot on prints and "manga/bohemian cuteness", the limited edition make uppredominantly features glitter, stars and playful rendering of her signature, cats. The collection was released in US counters in September 2009, while the Japanese market released it just recently, though Isetan in Tokyo's Shinjuku neighbourhood started selling it back in late October.

Tsumori Chisato was also involved in the process of creating this fabulous collection by selecting the packaging and contributed to the selection of shades of the cosmetics itself, which ranges from bright pinks to shiny gold. Perfect for all women.
As said by Tsumori Chisato herself, "In any collaborative project, expressing my own individuality is most important.... I designed all of these for a happy and peaceful Christmas holiday season. "

The make up collection includes:
  • A mini-brush set in a gold zippered case for 6,825 yen

  • Two palettes containing blush and eyeliner for 7,140 yen

  • A highlighter compact for 5,040 yen
  • Three shades of lipstick for 3,465 yen

  • A quilted makeup bag for 8,400 yen

  • A set of fake eyelashes studded with crystals for 6,825 ye

There is also a set of three lip gloss shades in a pink drawstring pouch that is exclusive to the Shu Uemura's store in Omotesando Hills Shopping centre and a few other department stores located all over Japan. Its currently retailing for 4,410 yen.
