Christmas 2014 Gift Guide: The Icons of Shu Uemura

I am pretty sure that every beauty enthusiast is familiar with Shu Uemura, or the brand that carries the ever famous eyelash curler and cleansing oils. Now, if you still haven't thought of a gift for your Shu Uemura fanatic friend, or anyone who digs makeup and beauty stuff, let me share with you some top-picks from the brand.

Shu Uemura has been known for a number of products and the famous Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler definitely tops the list. It has been a cult favorite for it delivers the perfect curl that lasts long. It may be pricey for a metal thing that curls eyelashes but the fact that it lasts forever and that it performs make it worth every centavo.


A staple in every woman’s make-up bag, Shu Uemura’s Eyelash Curler, delivers the perfect curl through its innovative design and ultimate precision. Adorned by professional make-up artists and celebrities across the globe, it is considered as one of the essential make-up tools to use.

The patented hinge and new “mushroom” shape silicon pad provides a protective and stay-put edge to the lashes. The curved angles make the eyelash curler suits to all eye shapes and specifically engineered to give the right amount of pressure.

Beautiful skin begins and ends with cleansing -- that is the story behind the Shu Uemura Cleansing Oils. Aside from effectively removing makeup, cleansing oils provide skincare benefits in just a few drops. 


Rooted from the belief that make-up begins and ends with cleansing, Shu Uemura developed the first ever cleansing oil, the Shu Uemura Ultime8 Cleansing Oil. Formerly called “Unmask,” the cleanser was first introduced in 1967, becoming the first oil-based cleanser in the market. Since then, the cleansing oil's exceptional reputation and gentle effectiveness quickly convinced the public of its skincare benefits and is now an emblematic product of the Shu Uemura brand.

With its eight exquisite botanical origin oils that were carefully sought out from Chinese medicines, it protects the skin’s delicate balance while removing make-up and impurities in a single step.

Aging is inevitable but its signs are controllable, right? Anti-aging is the current name of the game in the skincare ground that almost every brand carries a line that claims to inhibit signs of aging. Shu Uemura Tsuya Skin creates an ideal skin-texture -- smooth, soft and glowing -- just in a few days of use.


Meaning ideal skin in Japanese, Tsuya Skin creates the ideal skin texture – a porcelain-fine, petal-soft, and glowing skin in seven days, earning the reputation as the “youth power switch.”
Tsuya Skin’s main ingredients, Yeast Extract and Rhamnose, help to boost the self-cleaning mechanism for ideal youthful skin. CP Complex supports the discharge and decomposition of accumulated impurities, providing the skin a pure, transparent look for a perfect make-up finish.

Last but certainly not the least in the list of icons is the Shu Uemura Lightbulb Foundation. This product has received love allover the beauty world for its dewy-satin coverage.


Shu Uemura’s goal of creating a glowing skin canvas gave birth to the now iconic Lightbulb Foundation. Inspired by the tapping motion of traditional Japanese kabuki brushes, the foundation’s bulb-shaped sponge enhances the skin’s radiance while the fluid’s macadamia oil creates continuous mirror-like film glow.

Due to its streak-free and dewy satin coverage, the Shu Uemura Lightbuld Foundation has become a cult favorite after it was introduced in 2013.

Shu Uemura has a lot more to offer aside from what I shared above. Check out other Shu Uemura products at the brand's flagship store at Powerplant Mall, Rockwell and at Shangri-La Mall, Alabang Town Center, Rustan's Makati, SM Makati, and Trinoma.
