The second cosmetic collection produced by Naomi Watanabe for the Tokyo-based makeup brand Shu Uemura―called the “naomi for shu uemura collection”―will be released in limited supplies from July 20.
The collection includes two colours each of Shu Uemura’s hugely popular satin lipsticks Rouge Unlimited and their velvety Rouge Unlimited Matte. It also includes two colours from their Glow On F which gently blends with the skin and change one’s look in an instant. The blush is served in a limited edition custom case.
From a sublime colour that draws out the charm of a person tenfold to another trend colour that elevates the face to its peak, Watanabe produced each of these original colours from nothing and Shu Uemura manufactured them. This is also the first blush Watanabe has ever produced.
The collection comes as the long-awaited sequel to Uemura’s first collaboration with Shu Uemura when she was appointed an ambassador of the brand. The line-up exhibits Watanabe’s drive to keep on evolving and is an expression of herself today.
What Watanabe was focused on with this collection was ensuring each item easy to use and incorporate into looks while also making a range of exquisite colours you cannot get anywhere else. For example, the deep killer red colour “no.1” is laced with gold glitter to give a shimmering finish to those lips.
“unfollower” balances red and yellow with the saturation altered to create a unique orange that makes your lips the standout feature of your makeup. This colour is perfect when combined with summery eye makeup.
The blush serves to bring out your peak adult beauty in a super easy fashion. It’s for those people who are able to create gorgeous eye makeup but aren’t quite skilled at their cheeks yet. “amber sophistication” doesn’t highlight your cheeks too much but gives just enough to leave you looking sophisticated and urban. “bellini innocence” gives your cheeks a pure look with its coral colour that blends into your skin with its slightly more sweeter-looking appearance.
Naomi Watanabe published a comment regarding her collection: “Hello, everyone! I’m Naomi Watanabe! This summer, I am collaborating with Shu Uemura again to release a section collection! I am super happy to say that we have been able to deliver you all a product that we have confidence in. I hope that through this collaboration with Shu Uemura we can help all those people who treasure each day have the confidence to live life their way. I also hope this lends a little support to your makeup potential. Let’s all be happy and radiate this summer!!”
