I recently acquired these two pigments, which I believe are from this fall’s Overrich collection.  I think the left one is Blonde’s Gold, and the one on the right is Mega-Rich — but I could be wrong, since I’m going purely off of descriptions.  Both of these pigments are marked sample/working name.  Both of these pigments are ridiculously smooth, rich, and luxe.  They remind me quite a bit of last year’s Rushmetal launch, which Overrich is meant to anniversarize.

Since the opening of the first Beauty Boutique in Tokyo in 1983, each year a limited edition Boutique Birthday Collection of the season’s most festive beauty items is created in celebration.  This year, to mark the 25th anniversary, Mr. Uemura created the most special and unique collection yet, one which truly embodies shu uemura’s core values of nature, science and art.  Three 100% natural origin fragrances formulated with Despea Water and spectacular makeup products packaged in the designs of Tokyo-based artist Gwenael Nicolas.

Today, Mr. Uemura would have celebrated his 80th birthday.  To celebrate, for summer 2008, shu uemura introduces a limited edition collection called HANA-BI, which means fireworks, to celebrate the season full of energy, excitement, and festivals.  The HANA-BI collection is inspired by three fundamental elements of nature:  terre (earth), rose (flower), and source (water).  Each element has its own fragrance ($85.00), and each element also has its own limited edition palette ($65.00).  You can view the full collection here.
