Shu Uemura x Mario Fire Flower Lip Balm

The Shu Uemura x Mario limited edition was so irresistible that I couldn’t not get this Fire Flower lip balm before the whole collection disappeared in store.

The packaging is adorable and has the flower it is named after!

The colour is a nice pink-ish red.

On my lips it was moisturizing and pigmented. I was actually surprised that even through some drinking that it had staying power. Especially since this is meant to be a coloured lip balm!


Shu Uemura x Mario Travel Set

I love the entire Super Mario Shu Uemura collection and I totally couldn’t resist adding this travel set to what I already had.

Inside was a lip tint and cleansing oil mini as well as a pouch and eyelash curler! I coincidentally also was starting Super Mario Odyssey when I received this in the mail.

The beautiful cosmetic pouch has tons of pockets for all sorts of storage. It perfectly keeps any glass serum bottles protected so is good for travelling.

The best part of the set is this gold eyelash curler with the signature Power-Up star. Shu Uemura’s eyelash curlers are some of the best around and this is such a beautiful touch!

Shu Uemura x Super Mario

When Shu Uemura announced their Super Mario Bros collaboration, I literally screamed “TAKE ALL MY MONEY” at my computer. In reality, the individual pieces of the collection are on the pricey side, so I decided to limit myself to 2 items: Peach’s eye and cheek palette and a dual eyeliner. The order also came with free samples.

The packaging right down to the box is cute and has the classic pixelated characters and shiny patterns.

Inside were two sides, a pink and purple palette and a more warm orange and brown one. The blushes were imprinted with the classic stars, mushroom, flower, and block. It also came with a brush that really only seems suitable for the eyeshadows.

I love eyeliner so I couldn’t resist this dual stamp eyeliner. 

One side is a regular thin black eyeliner, and the other makes a star!

I tested both out with a simple look, using the pink side of the palette and finished it off with a star on top.

Both the shadow and the eyeliner are long-wearing. The eyeliner doesn’t smudge, so you can fool people into thinking you got a new star tattoo.

So far, I love these two pieces so much, I’m thinking of getting a few more pieces from the collection before it disappears!
