I'm Back + Shu Uemura's Rouge Unlimited Sakura Collection

Having been absent from this blog, I still found new material to post.  Last week, I received an invitation view Mika Ninagawa's collaboration with Shu Uemura.  This includes the Rouge Unlimited Sakura Collection which I swatched below.

Aren't these the prettiest colors?  It's so soft and feminine yet it makes quite a statement.  I want them all...

Now, what about Shu Uemura and animal testing?  If you go beyond the first few pages of Google search, there are some groups that claim Shu does not test on animals.  Even if the parent company does, the subsidiaries have their own facilities and labs that make these products.  So it's very confusing.  Some claim that Shu Uemura does animal testing, some say they don't.  For now, I will wait until the company releases a statement.  I hope they do that soon!


  1. I love how spring-appropriate the colors are!!

  2. Pretty colors!

    I'm glad you're back on track and I'm excited to hear what your news is! Blogging is wonderful but nothing beats a happy life :)
