Maison Kitsune’s Shu Uemura Collab Brings The Camo Trend To Your Makeup — But With A Twist
Sometimes, the sign that a trend is really sticking around will be a notable crossover from one category to another. Recently, neon clothes made room for electric-colored nails, while hot pink eyeshadow heralded the style set's shift from muted blush pink pieces to a much bolder hue. The latest trend to prove its staying power? Utility-chic camouflage, which has started showing up on everything from printed denim to daring accessories — and now all over the Maison Kitsuné x Shu Uemura collab. If your makeup bag could use a fresh new look, snag this collection fast (because it won't last for long).
When an impossibly chic, multi-faceted fashion and lifestyle brand like Maison Kitsuné joins forces with an iconic, luxe beauty brand like Shu Uemura, the results are bound to be beautiful. And when the duo's second collaboration happens to involve one of the season's top trends? Even better. For Spring-Summer 2019, Maison Kitsuné and Shu Uemura have joined forces again to craft a limited-edition color cosmetics collection with a playful spin on the camouflage trend — and it's safe to say you'll want to try it for yourself.
The exclusive camo-print collection, which blends Maison Kitsune's iconic fox mascot with lively colors and lipstick marks, includes a 12-pan eyeshadow palette, two different lipstick formulations in several of-the-moment shades, and a cleansing oil. It's currently available on Maison Kitsuné's website, but based on the fact that the limited-edition camouflage iteration of shu uemura's cult-loved cleansing oil has already sold out, you'll want to act fast to get in on the rest of the collab.
The freshly-dropped Camo Eyeshadow Palette, $96, includes 12 incredibly-wearable warm shades that range from golden ochres, browns, and khakis to hot corals and shimmering pinks, with a mix of pearlescent and matte finishes. The mix of neutral and noticeable colors means you can make your eyes look at subtle or statement-making as you like by blending together your favorite hues. Go for something demure for day, like a matte eye with just a touch of shimmer at the brow bone, before transforming it to something super smokey for night.
Then, swipe on a bold shade of the collab's lipstick launches to finish the look . Take your pick between an easy-glide tube formula or a single-swipe liquid iteration of Shu Uemera's hyper-pigmented matte lipstick, both $32 per piece. Bright, look-at-me colors like the Rouge Unlimited Matte in Berry or the Matte Supreme in Orange are ideal for the season ahead and are bound to make you stand out.
If there's one thing for certain about the camouflage trend — aside from the fact that it's clearly sticking around for awhile — it's that you can definitely bank on not blending in when taking it for a spin.
