This year is shaping up to be a fantastic year for Pokémon fans. The new Pokémon: Sword and Shield versions are coming to the Nintendo Switch this holiday season — and so is Japanese beauty brand Shu Uemura's Pokémon-themed makeup collection. Seriously, the collection is adorable, and includes lipsticks, two eye shadow palettes, makeup brushes, and special Pokémon-themed packaging of their famed skin-care products. But it's the Pikachu eyelash curler that must seen to be believed. Check out the full collection and details below.
Shu Uemura's Pokémon collection is designed thoughtfully, with nostalgia in mind.
Shu Uemura is known for its sleek, minimal packaging, and the brand is firmly marketed toward an older crowd (as opposed to, say, the annual Too Faced Holiday Gingerbread collection). The brand doesn't shy away from any age group — they have models with facial piercings and tattoos on its Instagram page — but they certainly approach makeup from a more timeless perspective.
Given their elegant aesthetic, it's such a treat that Shu Uemura is branching into this fun, nostalgia-driven Pokémon collection. Who among us didn't play the Pokémon video games in middle and high school? The golden color of the packaging reminds me of those summer days, trading Pokémon playing cards with friends at the park. It's designed to appeal to Pikachu fans both young and old!
As for collection specifics, the Shu Uemura Pokémon collection is beautifully subtle.
Although the collection is themed after cartoon monsters with magic powers, the pieces in the palettes feature subtle hues that are destined to become favorites in your vanity. The Brick Blast and Mythical Purple eye shadow palettes, seen above, would be beloved warm and cool basics, but they're even better with Pikachu.
But the true standouts in the collection are the Pikachu accessories. My 12-year-old self is STOKED.
The Shu Uemura Pokémon collection includes a GOLD STUFFED PIKACHU. Please, take my money now. There's also a Pikachu train case and a gold eyelash curler with a Pikachu charm. The collection also contains a four-piece brush set that comes in a matching printed case.
These Pikachu skin-care products are going to look adorable on your bathroom vanity!
The Pikachu packaging continues with the skin-care products. If you've needed to own a Pokémon-themed bottle of the legendary Shu Uemura Ultimate8 Cleansing Oil, now's your chance! It will come in two sizes, along with a lip conditioner.
It will be released in time for the holidays!
The Shu Uemura Pokémon collection will be released on October 25 in Japan, reports Trendmood. No word yet on pricing. For the rest of the world, it will be available in two separate drops on November 1 and 15 at shuuemura.com. Are you going to catch all of the pieces?
