Shu Uemura’s holiday collection is every makeup and chocolate lover’s dream come true
A match made in heaven
Love chocolate as much as you love makeup? You'll be glad to hear that Shu Uemura has the most irresistible treats lined up for you this year. Joining hands with French luxury chocolatier La Maison du Chocolat, the beauty brand unveils a holiday collection inspired by the universally-loved dessert that looks just as delicious as it is alluring.
Warning: Indulgent makeup spread ahead.
Doused in rich chocolate and berry hues, pulling together your festive look for a night out will be a delight with these sensorial creations. First up, the Ganache & Praliné Eye Palette. Take your pick between Dark Cacao and Framboise Berry — both bear an assortment of matte and metallic hues, and are delectably fragranced to boot.
Then, give a healthy pop of colour to your complexion with the Creamy Dome Blusher. With its creamy, cocooning texture and macaron-inspired hue, this adorably-packaged blush will brighten up your cheeks in no time.
Dip your lips in luscious dark berry and mauve shades with the Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte and Rouge Unlimited lippies. Laced with a chocolate fragrance and sweet flavours, these lipsticks come with absolutely delicious names too — Deep Cranberry or Salty Caramel, anyone?
Other sweet treats in the collection include the Magic Metallic Lip Liner, the Brow Unlimited brow/lash gel in two vivid shades, the iconic eyelash curler in an irresistible chocolate edition, a beautiful multi-use Shimmery Powder, the Ultime8∞ Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil with a new chocolatey look (on the outside), a mini brush set, and a makeup box ready to be filled with the covetable creations.
That's not all. To inspire your party-ready holiday looks, here are two festive recipes based on the Ganache & Praliné eye palettes as concocted by Shu Uemura international artistic director Uchiide. Enjoy!
