Day 4: shu uemura x Pokemon beauty giveaway

Move over celebrities and influencers, there is a new beauty collaboration that is trumping all for holiday 2019! Iconic video game characters. Japanese artistry brand shu uemura has teamed up with Pokemon for a cheerful limited edition makeup collection that has sold out almost instantly around the world. It’s been so popular, fans and beauty enthusiasts have been begging to be added to waiting lists in case any items are returned to stores.

Here’s a link to my shu uemura x Pokemon story about the entire collection.

This isn’t the first time shu has collaborated with a video game franchise. It’s collection with Super Mario Bros created a similar frenzy with gamers stocking up on the lipsticks, palettes and makeup train cases. After several years collaborating with high profile influencers, beauty companies seem to be moving in a new direction. The enthusiasm and sales from these video game characters are impressive. We’ll likely see more of them in 2020.

    Love the collection but the quality of the product would be far more important than having a video game character on the packaging

      I’ve loved Tetris since I was a little girl! It’s my favorite game! I’d probably buy a beauty product with my fav character.

    That’s easy, it’s Tomb Raider 2, closely followed by the original Resident Evil game. I love games as much as lipstick.

    All time favourite video game is super sonic because of the speed it runs at and of a product was created with it’s face on it, then why not because it would give the expression of the theme fast. @agbodoroba.
