Super Mario Bros x Shu Uemura Holiday Collection

Super Mario Bros x Shu Uemura Holiday Collection

Shu Uemura had recently released their new collection in collaboration with Nintendo Super Mario Bros. this month of October 2017. I was so excited when I heard about this collab. I am a huge fan! I am quite impressed with the creativity this collection brings. The packaging is also really cute! Makes me want to dig out my old game console and start playing again.

Are you or do you know someone who is a makeup enthusiast, makeup artist, a gamer and/or a Super Mario fan? If you or someone you know are into all of that, then this Shu Uemura x Super Mario Bros. Collection will make the perfect gift this holiday season.

This holiday season, Shu Uemura & Mario will take you on a beauty adventure. Help Princess Peach by protecting the Mushroom Kingdom's makeup treasure. Along the way, gather Shu Uemura's powerful cleansing oil and colourful makeup to fight against the Evil Bowser. Never see the world in black and white with this playful holiday collection! Dive into beauty adventure and dare to win with colors!

I don't have all the items in the entire collection, but here are the ones I've received:

Ultime8 Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil

Swim with Mario into the sea of our epic ultime8 sublime beauty cleansing oil. a sublime combination of eight precious botanical origin oils deliver eight skincare benefits! The silky oil offers deep, effective cleansing in one step without drying out the skin or leaving a residue. The appearance of skin improves over time with continued use for a smooth and toned complexion.

My thoughts: The cleansing oil is nice; not too greasy. I like to use oil-based makeup remover to remove eyeshadow and eyeliner using a small amount on a cotton tip or Q-tip. The cleansing oil comes in two bottle sizes: 150mL and 450mL. I received the larger one. It will last me for a very long time.

Peach’s Eye and Cheek Palette 

Peach’s Eye and Cheek Palette Peach’s Eye and Cheek Palette

This sweet and audacious palette is inspired by the beloved Princess peach in two different princess look options in one palette! Pressed eye shadow shades include IR pink, S mauve, P plum, G gold light, ME orange, ME bronze. Glow-on from left: dreamy peach, brave orange.

My thoughts: The palette has nice neutral colors I like, but all of them are shimmery. I would love to see some matte shades as well.

Drawing Pencils

A multipurpose eyeshadow liner in soft and defining shades. Inspired by Princess Peach’s iconic peach pink dress, these colorful Drawing Crayons have a long-wearing formula that stays true all day. They feature easy-to-apply colors that naturally blend in for a delicate expression, and the creamy, soft texture allows you to draw lines or paint eye contours. Just blend in to use as a single color or as an eyeshadow base. Colors available: matte black, light orange, princess pink, and brick brown

My thoughts: The pencils are creamy and smooth. I love that it just glides over my eyelids without any tugging at all. I received the "princess pink" and the "matte black" shades.

Protective Moisture Primer

Shu Uemura Super Mario 
Protective Moisture Primer

Shu Uemura introduces the next start primer: stage performer block:booster. It moisturizes the skin from the moment it is applied, with Shu Uemura’s newest technology that boost light reflecting properties. It neutralizes skin tones, leads to less dull-looking skin, enhances foundation adhesion and lasting power.

My thoughts: This natural beige tinted moisture is used prior to my makeup routine. It keeps my skin moisturized while keeping my skin look smooth. I also like that it contains SPF50 to protect from the sun's harmful UV rays.

Peach’s Favorite Premium Brush Set

Peach’s Favorite Premium Brush Set

This limited edition brush set features four premium brushes heads to the retro graphical SUPER MARIO BROS world. Materials for face brush: goat. Materials for cheek brush, eye shadow brush, eyeliner & lip brush: synthetic fiber.

My thoughts: I love the adorable storage pouch it comes with. It features the yellow star accent. The pouch keeps all your brushes organized. There is also a little side pocket to fit the eyeshadow & blush palette. It's a nice compact size, perfect for traveling or taking it with you on-the-go in your purse. The bristles are soft and blends powder evenly.

Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte Lipstick

Level-up your look in the Mushroom Kingdom with a princess-like sheer veil of color and winning matte finish. This lipstick features an array of inspiring shades formulated for exceptional moisture and comfort. It provides saturated color by combining Shu Uemura’s signature hybrid pigment technology with a new crystal core hybrid pigment. Meanwhile, the formula’s double moisture system provides ultimate hydration and care.

My thoughts: I received two colors called "Saved Peach" (peachy orange color) and "Stage Cleared" (peachy pinkish color). When I opened the package, it definitely caught my attention. I thought "OMG, the tube and illustrations are SO cute!" Makes me feel like Princess Peach with these lip colours.

I had so much fun sharing this with all of you, my lovely readers. The collection is availble through Shu Uemura's website, Sephora, and your local department stores. These are limited edition products so get them while you can.

Disclosure: I received the above mentioned products at no charge in exchange for my honest review. My opinions are my own and may differ from those of other consumers. No other compensation was given.


  1. What color is Saved Peach when you apply it on?
    I've seen a few reviews which look like it actually swatches pink but the formula looks so orange/coral so wondering if you were also experiencing that!

  2. Sorry for the late reply. I have fair to med skintone, so it actually looks a little more peachy/pink on me.
