Color is Delicious. First of all, think bubble gum pink, candy apple red, and violet mints. Considering this, what’s your favorite flavor? For instance, when I think about bubble gum pink, I see, taste, and smell a juicy piece of bazooka bubblegum. Furthermore, I can taste the color candy-apple red. All I have to do is think about biting into a real candy apple. As a result, when
Shu Uemura visited La Maison du Chocolate, they learned how the power of color can affect our emotions, and our other senses. What is more, when we look at a color, we can taste it, and feel it. With regards to this, the iconic Japanese makeup brand, Shu Uemura X La Maison Du Chocolate, the famous French, Parisian Chocolatier, created a cross-industry partnership.
As a result, they created a makeup collection for Holiday 2018 that is delicious, and beautiful. Above all, the makeup looks like chocolate, smell like chocolate, and tastes like chocolate. And it looks good on almost every skin tone.
You can find the whole Shu Uemura La Maison du Chocolate on the Shu Uemura Website. The collection includes two eye shadow palettes that retail for $99 each. Also, there are two metallic lip liners that retail for $30 each. There are six shades of color matte lipsticks. They retail for $31 each. In addition, there are two creamy dome blushers. They retail for $30 each.
Shu Uemura X La Maison du Chocolate Packaging
A box of assorted chocolates was the inspiration for the packaging of The Shu Uemura X La Maison du Chocolate collection.
Shu Uemura X La Maison du Chocolate Colors Are Delicious
Usually makeup is something that is visual. However, this collection encourages us to use all of our senses when we “taste” the La Maison Du Chocolate through the makeup. First of all, Cacao, an ingredient used to make chocolate, comes in different finishes. For example Cacao, like makeup, can have a powdery, creamy, melted, shiny, matte, cocoa or an iridescent finish. Moreover, chocolates, and makeup have a lot of the same traits. First,this trait includes professional craftsmanship. Also, both industries create their products using precision and creative originality.
As a result, Brazilian Chocolate has strokes of yellow with notes of passion fruit. Therefore, Brazilian Chocolate is perfect for creating fun, girly makeup. However, Ghana Chocolate, robust and spicy, has black streaks that make it perfect for night-time makeup. Additionally, Grenada Chocolate is spicy and crisp. Furthermore, it goes well with light day time makeup.
