#CollabCrush: shu uemura x Maison Kitsuné

A beauty collaboration of colourful, contemporary nuances, shu uemura‘s 2015 holiday collection with French electronic music record label and fashion label Maison Kitsuné should be on top of your makeup must-have wishlist, and here’s why.

Combining Maison Kitsuné’s savoir faire with shu uemura’s Japanese techniques, this“beauty remix” collection redefines culture with iconic motifs from the East and West in the most eclectic chic way possible—a dress and a kimono; a fleur de lis and a plum blossom, and so on. Our favourites include:

Inspired by the Western smoky eye and Tokyo’s street girl’s flushed cheeks, you can go both ways with the Beauty Remix Eye and Cheek Palette. Whether classic Parisian chic or a subtle Nippon-esque look, these hues embody a youthful spirit that you can’t go wrong with.


A perfect addition for any glamorous holiday event, Jewel-Fur-For-A-Wink incorporates a French touch with black tapered partial lashes with deep burgundy luxurious feathers with silver diamond bands, while Tricolor-In-A-Blink combines both French and Japanese inspiration with small partial cross lashes in black and the French tricolore colours in blue, red and white.
