hard formula eyebrow pencil (limited edition)
One of the most loved eyebrow pencils around, and used by celebrity makeup artists such as Pony, shu uemura’s hard formula eyebrow pencil (SGD33) has received a revamp thanks to this collaboration.

shu uemura’s popular rouge unlimited matte lipsticks (SGD42) have also received a makeover inspired by Onitsuka Tiger, and even have a specially made, youthful fragrance infused in the formula. Don’t worry about changes in formula – your favourite lipstick still promises the same high impact, matte pigment that glides over the lips comfortably, in three limited edition shades designed to suit Asian skin tones. tangy orange is a light peachy-orange perfect for everyday wear, while chilli ambition and red boost are punchy shades of orange and red respectively that will enliven even the dullest complexion.
