For those interested, Shu Uemura Wong Kar Wai for Holiday has finally hit their US online store. Unfortunately, the eye and cheek palettes will not be available to us State side.
I know I said earlier that I have to get something from the collection, but after my initial flurry of excitement dissipated, I realized the only things I really liked in the collection were the false lashes (which I could never find an occasion to wear) and the nail polish sets, which at $32 for two 5ml bottles, were priced even higher than Chanel's.
That said, in my Googling adventures I stumbled upon this wonderful Shu Uemura brush review and comparison post on Ars Aromatica. The crystal clear photography and exhaustive review contributes to a temporary shut down of common sense in my brain, long enough for me to add a brush or three into my cart. I mean brushes (not just brushes, Shu Uemura brushes) are essentials, right? Like. I'm gonna use them for the next ten years?
