Beauty Advent Calendar: Shiseido Festive Camellia

What do you get when you combine the artistic expertise of a fashion designer with a professional cosmetics brand? A lush, floral-inspired festive palette that is the limited edition Shiseido Festive Camellia—a special collaboration between Shiseido Makeup and Yohji Yamamoto’s iconic brand Y’s.

The camellia being the muse and motif, Y’s has designed a holiday package with haute couture elegance: Silk from Kyoto is used on the palette, with camellia motifs in vivid colour blooming against a deep plum background. Its asymmetrical shape alludes to nature’s whimsy and stems from non-Western traditions-a theme that resonates with Y’s style. With art director Dick Page lending his eye for colour, the palette includes six fresh, camellia-inspired hues that is ultra pigmented and luxuriously smooth-ideal for both face colour and eyeshadow.
