It’s official. The countdown to the festive season has begun. Tomorrow, October 10th sees the release of Shu Uemura‘s Festive collection.

Normally I’m super against the whole Christmas outwith December idea, but I just have to share the gorgeousness which is this special edition.

First off, I’m kind of obsessed with Takashi Murakami. When I was 14-15 I was obsessed with the special edition LV bags he created. The flowers were just the epitome cool, and for my 16th I was surprised with a Bucket Bag emblazoned with smiling cherries – it was truly like nothing I had. I toted it to school, on holiday, everywhere. I was (and still am) in love with the way he completely reinvented a classic. For now the bag is packed safely away in the back of a closet, but this little gem is making me want to dig it back out!

Ok, so enough backstory, onto the product! Packaged in rather fetching gold, emblazoned with hearts and happy-faced-flowers, the Lip & Cheek Fun-tasy will stand out it anyone’s stash.

Look – it’s a little Christmas tree made of hearts!

So as you can probably tell, the packaging alone has me completely in love, but it doesn’t stop there. Inside is a bright candy-pink creme for your cheeks and lips.

It’s incredibly pigmented, so only the teeniest of dabs is needed for a perfect pink flush, and it can be built up on the lip to create a statement look. The color dries down matte, but it doesn’t feel drying at all. The colour is pinker than shown in the pictures, and is completely gorgeous!

As mentioned it launches tomorrow exclusively at Selfridges and will cost £20
