Japanese photographer and film director Mika Ninagawa is doing a third collaboration with Shu Uemura this year (her first ones were in 2008 and 2011), and it's sooo pretty!
For the packaging, Mika has created four new designs with her signature colourful imagery. Here's a sneak peek at the entire, highly collectible new range, which will be available for a limited time in April.
PS: The Tint in Gelato for lips and cheeks, which I'm most excited about, is going to be part of their permanent collection. You've gotta check 'em out; they're SO good.
