Shu Uemura is back again with another exciting launch! Fresh from their collaboration with French fashion label Maison Kitsuné, the beauty brand now introduces a new makeup collection starring one of the most adorable Pokémon species of all time.
Wittily named Pikashu, this electrifying holiday collection (which will be released next month) features the iconic Pikachu donning a new look that's never seen before. The story goes that on 'a holiday night', Pikachu gained special colour powers from Shu Uemura and turned into Pikashu, an evolved version that wears festive makeup complete with cheerful orange cheeks, bright red lips, lovely purple eyes, and has a thunderbolt heart-shaped tail. So cute, right?
This collaboration includes Shu Uemura's hero products like their beauty cleansing oils, facial brushes and top-rated eyelash curlers. Ahead, our favourites from this charming collection.

We doubt that you'd ever want to skip double cleansing again when you have this dressed-up version of the cult classic ultime8∞ sublime beauty cleansing oil on your vanity. It's the same beloved formula consisting of eight oils that work together to cleanse and hydrate skin, but made more fun.

For this collection, Shu Uemura will be releasing three limited-edition eyeshadow palettes (thunder shock, which is the most versatile of the bunch; mythical purple, which emphasises plum and berry shades; and brick blast with the gold and bronze colours) featuring hues inspired by Pikachu. Of course, that includes yellow and purple but complementary neutral colours are also included so you can create a broad range of looks.
