Better Late Than Never: Shu Uemura Holiday Collection by Wong Kar Wai

So, When I first learnt about the Wong Kar Wai collaboration with Shu Uemura, I thought, hmm this looks gorgeous! Then I thought, hmm, how have I never really tried anything from such a legendary line. Then I thought, who is this WKW? Sorry I'm not a cinema buff, blogging takes up alotta time, ladies!

When I finally saw the collection I was impressed. Then I learned who WKW was.  Wong Kar Wai is lauded for his works  like Chungking ExpressDays of Being WildIn the Mood for Love and 2046, Wong Kar Wai is a Hong Kong film-maker well-known for his layered themes.

It's the director’s first collab with a cosmetics brand. This partnership is viewed as a serendipitous one by Shu Uemura, given that artistry is in the brand’s DNA and Wong is an intrepid artist and a master of colors. 

Check out this video, Mask, a short film created for Shu Uemura expressed in rouge et bleu (red and blue), showcasing Wong’s vision of femininity. The brand calls it a ‘lush visual poem’ – play the video to understand why.

I was lucky enough to be sent the white recovery EX+ brightening cleansing oil. I had never tried this well-known product that the brand is known for. I have to say I now understand why. This is available in limited edition lenticular packaging. It's $80 (for 15.2 FL oz.), which is only $2 more than usual. Although this is a little pricey, it's definitely worthy of a holiday splurge! The packaging on this product is so unique, it has a hologram, which moves and changes. It's the perfect way to end a festive party! It gently removes your makeup to keep your skin hydrated. I was a little curious about whether my skin would feel clean after washing it with an oil but it really does! Shu Uemura also has a cleansing oil shampoo, which is fabulous! It leaves your skin feeling absolutely luminous. 


Merry Christmas, dolls! Do you have any favorites from the collection!?!
