Something New: Mamechiyo for Shu Uemura

After the successful I Love Beauty workshop at Studio SnR, Mr. AMW and I went to Rockwell to have dinner with friends.  As soon as we walked pass Shu Uemura Boutique, I gave out a loud "yelp" because of the cute "Kimono-like" print on limited edition cleansing oils and UV bases!  

At the workshop, I was just telling Charlene of Yellow Yum (whom I met for the first time after several years!) that I'll be off to Tokyo, Japan this Holy Week and we were discussing on the makeup and skincare that I'm keen to check out!  I blurted out Shu Uemura right away as I believe there are some limited collections there!

Speaking of the devil angel, look what greeted me at the boutique!

Mamechiyo for Shu Uemura!

My heart fluttered, this collection is so ME and so YOU I'm sure!  Anyone who loves beauty the way I do would feel the same! 

Who is Mamechiyo?

Mamechiyo is a modern kimono artist!  Mamechiyo dreamed of becoming an apprentice geisha from childhood and she pursued her dream and started to work in second-hand shops!  She is now creating high fasghion kimono for women who adore fun and beauty!  She's definitely the Geisha woman of the 21st century!

  4. The Sakura design is so cute! Why does Shu Uemura have to come up with such cute designs? :)

    1. for us to spend! hehehe well I'm lucky, I do purchase the Cleansing Oil so it doesn't hurt to have them in beautifully packaged "packaging" :D Like the comment I replied above, I have 3 full sizes bottles reused so it doesn't hurt to have a prettier packaging! :)
