“Beautiful makeup starts with beautiful skin.” – Shu Uemura
Shu Uemura celebrates their 30th anniversary of their first Beauty Boutique in Omotesando this year with a special limited edition collection. Firstly, Shu Uemura pays tribute to their very first cleansing oil, Unmask, with a specially-designed collection of their most popular 450ml variants by renowned Japanese illustrator, Tsuyoshi Hirano.
Also to celebrate Shu Uemura’s milestone in artistry, they also have a selection of limited edition palettes in smooth, pastel matte shades, all housed in a white quad case with Tsuyoshi Hirano’s exclusive design as well. Check out the Blossom Dream collection below.

Re-discover the joy of Shu Uemura’s professional atelier with three new special edition matte textured refills in charming pastel shades for your palettes – Pink, Blue and Green. Now everyone can easily achieve pro-level make-up gradation, color payoff, and ultra-smooth matte texture. I’ve received the one in pink, check out the swatches above. The palette is made up of soft shades with minimal shimmery finish. The powder is so fine that there weren’t any particles fallout.

5 new shades in pearl and matte texture for a complexion abloom with fantasy. From blissful pink to vibrant oranges, the range is newly enriched with vibrant dreams and feminine delight.
