Christmas 2015 Palettes: Shiseido and shu uemura

Here are the palettes from Christmas 2015 collections that look absolutely adorable and gorgeous and both are collaborations between beauty and fashion brands.

There are two from shu uemura which are a collaboration with Maison Kitsuné. They are the Smoky Eye And Cheek Palettes (£60 from Harrods or Selfridges).
