shu + Ambush

One of the most creative beauty collaborations this season comes from Japanese makeup brand shu uemura. The niche luxe beauty brand has partnered with Tokyo cult design sensation Ambush for a capsule collection with special packaging. Ambush is a Tokyo-based jewelry & fashion brand launched by jewelry designer Yoon and DJ Verbal. They take the vibrant and fast-paced Tokyo aesthetic and translate it into edgy accessories and fashion pieces. It is very much an underground brand favoured by stylists and musicians. Lady Gaga is a fan of the company.

ambushThe theme of the collection is “rock in gold” and it is meant for women who want to live their life out of the ordinary. These are pieces that are meant to be noticed. You’ll notice that Ambush likes to ground its collections in gold and add pops of primary hues like red, orange, yellow and blue.

You’ll find a custom gold eye palette that can be filled with four shadows. Eye brow manicure comes in silver and gold. And four lipsticks from nude to bold red round out the collection.

“I just think these shades are just right for summer…so wear able and so cool,” says Yoon.

    This collection looks so cool and creative. It’s nice to see something a little different out there…even though it’s probably more appropriate for my teenager than myself. Lol

    This is just amazing! I love the design of all the products- they are vibrant, cool, energetic. Most luxury brands tend to choose safe designs but this- it’s daring and luring. I’d totally buy the entire collection not to look at it as an art object (which is totally possible given the number of make-up junkies who buy make-up for collection purpose, not to wear it)- I’d wear it. Kudos to the entire creators team! Great job!
