Through some sort of unfortunate delivery glitch, that resulted in my package of this gorgeous Shu Uemura Kye Collection getting delivered to a neighbor's house, I am only just now seeing these gems for the first time. I am, however, exceedingly grateful that my neighbor was an honest soul and that my package eventually found its way to my doorstep.
The Shu Uemura KYE Collection:
For the 2016 spring artist collaboration, shu uemura fuses with exciting creative talent Kathleen Kye. Seoul’s irresistible, high-end street fashion designer expresses unique real world designs inspired by today’s Korean youth movements and energy, accented with impactful messages. Like Mr. Shu Uemura attained status as an artist ahead of the times through his innovative creativity and skill, KYE’s original mix of Korean koolness and her own kreative spirit have pushed K-fashion onto the global stage.
First ever cushion cheek blush from shu uemura unveiled for this exclusive collection in shades inspired by Korea’s national flower: mugunghwa , also known as hibiscus syriacus. Cushion blush in pink and orange shades offers a light and fresh sensation on the skin, perfect for this season! Apply cushion blush with the provided puff. Build over foundation for a fresh dewy look.
Kye for Shu Uemura Fresh Cushion Blush ($30.00 from Shu Uemura and Yes Style): This gorgeous and whimsical compact boasts a remarkably innovative blush formula that is sure to delight. Hibiscus Orange is a gorgeous soft peachy shade that spreads across the skin effortlessly and deposits color evenly. It offers a stunning natural finish and that highly sought after ethereal dewy glow.

As a lip balm enthusiast, I was immediately swept off of my feet by the Kye for Shu Uemura Sheer Lip Balms ($30.00 each from Shu Uemura and Yes Style): These gorgeous melting balms react to the PH of your lips and enhance the color accordingly. They are a bit like a mood ring for your lips. They are ultra-hydrating and feel amazing on the lips. Interestingly, my particular body chemistry results in Glow in Pink and Hugged in Peach looking nearly identical on me– with only the slightest variation in hue.

According to Shu Uemura,
Street neon inspired striking shades of lip balm that “magically” transform into surprisingly wearable sheer pink to orange on your lips. The vivid melting lip balm reacts with your lip’s PH and moisture condition to create a unique glow. A lip balm that creates a smooth, thick veil on lips gliding on easily and moisturizing your lips. All three shades come in packaging specially designed for shu uemura by Korea's hottest fashion designer Kathleen Kye.
Kye for Shu Uenura Limited Edition Eyebrow Mascara ($23.00 from Shu Uemura): is the iconic Shu brow gel formula in gorgeous, limited edition shades. Available in two shades, I received Dark Rose, which is described as, "a purplish deep brown that adds a touch of sophistication to a wide range of hair colors."
