I don’t think I’ve been this excited for a makeup collection collaboration ever. I had seen word of this online and when it arrived at my door I was literally jumping up and down like a school girl and trying to show everyone I could find! The shu uemura X Super Mario Bros. Collection is equal parts cute and retro cool. This holiday collection is a must have under any Mario loving beauty lovers tree!

The packaging is so fun! There are limited edition new products along with special limited edition specially packaged regular line favorites. Even the interior of the exterior packaging (boxes) features fun Super Mario Bros. graphics!

The star of the collection is the shu uemura x Super Mario Bros. Peach’s Eye and Peach Palette ($125 CAD).

This adorably packaged palette includes six eyeshadows and two blushes organized into two different looks.

The shadows included are:

  • IR (iridescent) pink
  • S (satin) mauve
  • P (pearl) plum
  • G (glitter) gold light
  • ME (metallic) orange
  • ME bronze

And two Glow On Blushes (with cute embossments!) in:

  • dreamy peach
  • brave orange

The Darling Princess Look

The Adventurous Princess Look

The shu uemura Fresh Cushion Blushes ($45 CAD) are a dream. These blushes impart such a pretty natural colour to the skin and give a healthy dewy finish.

The two shades available in the collection are Dreamy Mauve and Brave Amber. They come in specially packaged compacts with Mario graphics… of course! Shown is Brave Amber.

The Tint in Balm is a really cool product. This silky balm melts into the lips imparting moisture and glorious shine while also packing a seriously impressive amount of pigment! Instead of twist up packaging it is a click pen which I found to be really unique and fun.

There are two shades available. Flower of Fire and the vampy shade shown, Underground Adventure.

There are five specially packaged lipsticks in the collection. Two Rouge Unlimited Sheer Shine Lipsticks and three Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte Lipsticks.

I love both of these formulas so much. The Supreme Matte Lipstick formula is one of a select few matte formulas I enjoy. They are light, creamy, and hydrating. There is no life sucking dryness and no chalkiness in the formula. It is so comfy. The shade I have is M PK375 (matte pink 375). It is a gorgeous dusky mauve pink.

The shu uemura eyelash curler is a cult favorite lash curler and my personal fave. The new Invincible Superstar Premium Gold Lash Curler ($25 CAD) has a beautiful star charm making it a must have in any collection.

The shu uemura Drawing Pencil is one of my favorite eyeliner formulas. It is super creamy, pigmented, and long wearing. There are four shades in the collection, each featuring Super Mario Bros. graphics of course.

I have light orange (a light metallic copper) and brick brown (a matte warm red brown). Also available are matte black and princess pink.

I have raved about the shu uemura Ultime8 Cleansing Oil on this blog again, and again, and again. This has been my holy grail cleansing oil since it’s release over 5 years ago. It is available in limited edition Super Mario Bros. packaging in both the 150ml (shown) and 450ml sizes.

If you’re looking for some shu uemura x Super Mario Bros. cuteness for your hair then you can check out the Cleansing Oil Shampoo and Conditioner ($56 CAD each) and the Super Mario Master Wax.
