What happens when you combine mahou shoujo (magical girl) anime and makeup? The result is none other than the 6♥Princess holiday collection, a collaboration between the legendary Japanese makeup brand Shu Uemura and world renowned contemporary Japanese artist Takashi Murakami.
According to Shu Uemura, 6♥Princess is “themed on the dual beauty of the pink and black princess. Everyone has a pink side and black side in her, nice and naughty, innocent and sexy.”
What makes this holiday collection even more special is that it is also a celebration of Shu Uemura’s 30th anniversary. This limited edition collection is a wonderful set of beauty products housed in cute golden packaging, featuring Murakami’s splendid artwork that will make your heart flutter and go “kawaii~!”
Last November, Shu Uemura Philippines held the “Shu x Murakami” party where they showcased the versatility and beauty of each product by creating “pink princess” and “black princess” looks that can be achieved using the products found in the collection.
Participants were encouraged to dress up as a pink or black princess and join Shu Uemura’s cosplay contest.
Here are photos of some the products in the collection:
