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.
