shu uemura and Takashi Murakami Christmas 2013 Makeup Collection

I am personally almost done with my Christmas presents, which is super early this year, as I am usually a last minute shopper, so am already looking forward the Spring 2014 makeup collections.

But if you are still looking for  some nice, beauty related presents, you may want to take a look at the shu uemura and Takashi Murakami makeup collection.

This collection is called 6 heart princess (6HP), which is Murakami’s upcoming artwork (TV series, based on it will be shown in 2014).  You can read more about it in the end of this post.
