I spent last Friday night at Opus in Resorts World. People who know me know that I hate going out on a Friday night because of the insane traffic. RW is far from where I live to boot. But this is Shu Uemura, my most favorite beauty brand of all time… so how could I say no, right? 😀
Opus was transformed into a make-up atelier for Shu Uemura x Wong Kar Wai. Wong Kar Wai is a renowned film maker from Hong Kong who’s collaborating with Shu Uemura for a limited edition make-up collection this holiday season.
I took the opportunity to go over the make-up table and check out the goods. These premium edition Dance in Glitter false eyelashes are absolutely to die for!
I can’t imagine cutting these (a standard procedure) to fit my eyelid though as a pair costs a few thousand pesos. XD
There was a special make-up preview featuring Shu Uemura make-up artists John Pagaduan and Patrick Escober’s interpretations of the WKW palettes. Above is John Pagaduan’s take on the Burning in Water palette. Glittery blue and silver — two of my favorite make-up colors! The resulting look was surprisingly fierce.
Patrick worked with the Drowning in Flame palette which was comprised mainly of purple and gold hues. The soft, clean, and innocent look that he came up with was certainly unexpected. Usually you’d expect water to be soft and serene, fire to be ferocious and fierce but these artists did the opposite. 🙂
We were all transfixed as the short film Mask by Wong Kar Wai was projected onto the walls of Opus for our viewing pleasure. Mask showcases the entire holiday collection, including the nail polish! I’m so excited to play around with these colors.
Catch the limited edition WKW for Shu Uemura collection this holiday season! It even has something sparkly for your nails. Personally I think I’ll purchase a Glittery Mascara so I can get sparkly lashes without the upkeep of falsies, hehe. 😀
