OB For Shu Uemura Spring 2013
The blossoming of the Sakura signals yet another much- anticipated special collection for Shu Uemura. This time, the brand has partnered with OB, a rising Japanese contemporary artist who was discovered by Takashi Murakami, a highly recognized Japanese artist. (Louis Vuitton Murakami collection, rings a bell?)
The new collection zooms in on Shu Uemura's iconic cleansing oils, supported by a few limited edition makeup items. If you're an avid reader of my blog, you know by now that the Hanami (Sakura Flower Viewing) festival is very important to Shu Uemura, thus he dresses up his best- selling cleansing oil line as a tribute to this thousand year- old tradition.

A soft splash of watercolors, a dream in technicolor, and a dash of natural inspiration-OB creates the four muses of Shu Uemura for their first grand collection for 2013. I've also realized that the princesses go beyond cuteness-they actually represent noble human principles, and the entire collection sends out a message of love and appreciation for the environment to every person.
MOON PRINCESS, TSUKI HIME
When human missiles have destroyed the moon, this left Tsuki Hime desolate, homeless, and in grief, and the human world was cloaked in eternal darkness and disarray. But her compassionate nature and genuine love for the moon has moved her to jump from star to star, pick up its fragments, and put them back together again so that the starless galaxy will illuminate once more.

Moon Princess UVUB Mousse POREraser (New)
CHERRY BLOSSOM PRINCESS, SAKURA HIME
When Sakura Hime starts to dance, she could go on and on tirelessly. As she twirls in delight and wallow in reverie, the Cherry Blossoms bloom continuously and beautifully, enchanting each and every human being who witnesses her sacred dance. And when it's finally time for Sakura Hime to rest, she falls into a deep slumber along with the Cherry Blossoms, away from the human world where she can regain inner peace and strength for the next Hanami.

OCEAN PRINCESS, UMI HIME
Umi Hime is a calm and gentle beauty who guards the ocean closely, ensuring that the marine life and the waters are protected from human oppression. But do not be fooled by her seemingly meek and soft personality, for this princess knows how and when to fight back when her precious kingdom is already at risk.

Shu Uemura also celebrates Women's Month this March, and they have chosen four prominent women in the industry who represent the Princesses of OB.
Another wonderful collection, Shu Uemura! I'm with Jheng of I Am Brigitte, Angela Nepomuceno of Lush Angel, Karen Crisostomo of Shu Uemura, and Tricia Gosingtian of Tricia Will Go Places.
Of all the special cleansing oil collections of Shu Uemura, this is perhaps the closest to my heart because its message resonates with my sentiments about the environment. I also salute Shu Uemura for creating a collection that does not only talk about mere individual, physical beauty, but also the beauty of being one with everyone and of course, nature. By the way, what OB Princess are you? I'm definitely an Ocean Princess because I love the beach so much! Even though the Fresh Pore Clarifying Cleansing Oil variant is my HG, I went for this instead because I can identify myself with her principles and personality. Besides, at least I can review another Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil variant for you guys! :)
