When we were but wee children, there was no better holiday gift we could receive than our favorite Nintendo video games. It looks like Christmas is coming early this year with a grown-up spin in the form of the Shu Uemura x Super Mario Brothers Holiday Collection. In a delightful twist of fate, the brand that’s famous for their hair care products (as well as for their eyelash curler) has collaborated with one of pop culture’s most famous games, resulting in a lovely assortment of hair care and makeup products.
This limited-edition Mario-themed collection will feature some of their most beloved products as well as brand-new color cosmetics. It’s part of the holiday collection and will be available for purchase starting in October.
However, the Shu Uemura x Super Mario Brothers Collection will be available early for one day only on Friday, September 15th.
Limited quantities will be available online for this flash sale.
Shu Uemura has worked with other artists on collaborations in the past, but this is the first time that a collection has been inspired by a game. Kakuyasu Uchiide, the international artistic director for Shu Uemura, spoke to WWD about their decision. He said,
“This time we got inspiration from culture. Super Mario Bros. is one cultural aspect that is representative of Japan. It’s also really, really popular overseas.”
