Since the opening of the shu uemura’s first Beauty Boutique in Tokyo in 1983, each year a limited edition Boutique Birthday Collection of the season’s most festive beauty items is created in celebration.
This year, to mark the 25th anniversary, the late Mr. Uemura created the most special and unique collection yet. HANA-BI is inspired by the three fundamental elements in nature: terre (earth), rose (flower), and source (water). The collection includes a series of 100% natural origin fragrances formulated with Depsea water, three color palettes, and two shimmering liquid eye liners.
My favorite of the HANA-BI bunch is the Fleur de Source Palette. These powder shadows feel cool and creamy on the skin. Lightly apply to create a soft and natural effect or layer them for a more dramatic look.
And, as if this new limited-edition collection wasn’t exciting enough, shu uemura is offering all their “friends & families” 20% off all orders and FREE standard shipping! The promotion will begin on Thursday, June 26th and end on Sunday, June 29th*. Enter promo code SHUSUMMER** at checkout.
*Valid: from 6/26–6/29 at 11:59pm EST.
**You must be signed in and enter promo code to receive the discount.

Like many women, one of my favorite shopping destinations is Marshalls. I could spend a few hours in Marshalls – and I have, on many occasions. I take my time combing the racks, so I’m sure not to miss any hidden treasures. When other women approach my aisle, I get territorial and send out subliminal messages – warning them not to disrupt my flow. I even scour the racks that aren’t my size, because sometimes shoppers are sneaky and hide things so they can come back and snatch them up. And let’s not even get into how the adrenaline courses through my veins when I find a designer piece on the clearance rack! I’m getting all excited just thinking about it.
Just when I thought I couldn’t love Marshalls any more, they go and surprise me. All new Marshalls stores and over 20 select locations across the country now feature The CUBE, an in-store boutique with a collection of contemporary fashion.
Intended for young women who are looking for trendy, yet sophisticated styles, this ‘boutique within a store,’ presents the hot trends from all the departments in the store – including apparel, shoes, handbags and jewelry…so it’s easy to shop and accessorize. And rather than being arranged by size, apparel in the CUBE is organized by style, so shoppers can find what they’re looking for and create a stylish, head-to-toe outfit more easily.
Click here for more info, and to see if there’s a CUBE near you.
