Last week I went to the Shu Uemura store in Antwerp. It’s the only Shu Uemura store in Belgium, and I saw many amazing things I want to show you!
Besides the cleansing oil, Shu is famous for false eyelashes. Besides the more everyday pairs, there are many that are beyond your wildest imaginations, such as:
Or maybe disco ball?
These are some Viktor Rolf collaborations. I think they came out for fall 2008! This pair is called Swirl.
This pair is called Wing. I think it looks like paperclips!
They’d be so much fun for the catwalk or photo shoots!
Shu’s famous eyelash curlers. Compared with the ones I’ve seen, these are much more slanted. Is anyone a fan? I like my Shiseido curler, but I’ve always been very curious about these!
This is the spring collection called Celestial Garden.
Nail polish line-up:
Makeup case. It looks really professional, and I suspect it’s quite heavy!
Now, here is something that’s coming out in two weeks. I got a sneak peek:
It’s the Shu Uemura and Mamechiyo collaboration! Mamechiyo is a modern kimono artist, and she designed the most beautiful bottles for the cleansing oil and UV under base mousse (though I’m not 100% sure it’d be available here). Wouldn’t it be delightful to have a bottle like this in the bathroom?
That’s our little tour of Shu Uemura in Antwerp. Have you tried Shu Uemura anything? What would you recommend?

Random photo of the day:
I saw this next to the Shu Uemura store, and I HAD to take a photo because the mannequin has a big cat on the leash!
PS: The Shu Uemura store is located at 38 Huidevettersstraat, Antwerp. It’s hidden in this old-school “gallery,” but it’s pretty easy to find!
