Shu Uemura 6 ♥ Princess by Takashi Murakami Holiday Collection 2013 | Beauty News

I grew up watching Japanese anime and always have a soft spot for Majokko (魔女っ子) Princesses characters (basically princesses or witches with magical power).  I'm sure a lot of us have that in common wanting to be Sailor Moon or Card Captor Sakura when we're little.  Majokko is a cultural phenomenon for decades and it's very popular in many age groups (let's not talk about otaku though).

This holiday season, renowned Japanese artist Takashi Murakami has teamed up with Shu Uemura to create the 6 ♥ Princess Holiday Collection
 based on his upcoming animation series "6 ♥ Princess".  Whether you like anime or makeup, or both, your jaws will completely dropped for this collection.  It is uber super duper cute!  Oh, and this collection is already available online!

The concept of this collection " focuses on the 'paradox' of pink and black princess characters as feminine icons—because every woman has a duality within, nice and naughty, innocent and sexy."  It offers two polar different set of make up for you to explore your "pink and black" sides.

I think I'm pink only because I like to think that I'm nice :P.  Either way, I already have quite a big wish list for this collection.  For starters, that eyelash curler is a must, the lip and cheek tints are very intriguing, so are the mini nail funtasy sets.  I just can't get enough of the artwork and packaging in this collection.  Hahhhhh.... So, are you a pink (nice) princess or a black (naughty) princess?

Until next time,

  1. omeegosh. i absolutetly loved card captor sakura. so much!! no joke lol. i hated that teletoon didn't have properly translated episodes and didn't show all the eipsodes so i downloaded all of them plus the movies in their org japanese w/ eng subs. so worth it lol.


    the palettes look great but i odnt think the color combos really suit me. i have some pink shadows but don't really need a whole lot more but the design on these are great!
