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.

    I loved Super Mario Bros. growing up the most, but I think it would depend on the beauty product if I would buy something with a character on it.

    Don’t play much anymore, but used to love the shoot em up games like medal of honour and loved the adrenaline rush I got from it. Busy life has taken over now but had hours of fun fun fun. Unusual for a lady I know, but have always loved being a little different lol @Clarky2002

    Love love love this, and yes I would buy it, that Pikachu is precious and I would sleep with it too!! It brings back such wonderful memories of my sons growing up with pokemon everywhere in our home. But as for my favorite video game I am still playing Sonic Spinball on my old Nintendo handheld from years and years ago so that has to be my favorite game still.

    Super Mario – I don’t think I would buy a beauty product just for a character unless I wanted the product in the first place. (@HollySn60769818)
