Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach…the gang’s all there

Beauty Crew Beauty Writer / September 15 2017

It’s not enough that shu uemura’s cleansing oil is one of our cult faves – they’re constantly releasing limited edition designs that have the same golden elixir inside, but pretty new packaging on the outside that we need to get our hands on every single time. They’ve collaborated with fashion designers Karl Lagerfeld and Maison Kitsuné and released a Travel Collection, Art Series, and so on. The latest (their 2017 holiday collection) is a flashback to the ‘90s and it’s everything your geeky eight-year-old self could have ever wished for.

The Japanese skin, hair and makeup brand has teamed up with the ‘90s Nintendo game, Super Mario Bros. to deliver a holiday collection that’s bound to take you on a stroll down memory lane.

The collection, which launches on October 22nd, features a range of skin care and makeup products decked out with various Super Mario Bros. motifs. Notable mentions in the range go to the brand’s cult eyelash curler, which now features a cute star charm, shu uemura’s sheer and matte lipsticks with their pixelated Mario on the lid, and the Princess Peach-inspired eye and cheek palette.

According to shu uemura’s International Artistic Director Kakuyasu Uchiide, the launch has been designed to encourage women to dress up, play and experiment with beauty this holiday season, and “take our journey and score the highest beauty points on our beauty adventure.”
