About two weeks ago I was very disappointed to learn that Shu Uemura was selling Japan-exclusive cleansing oils and palettes designed by Tsuyoshi Hirano. Perhaps the company's spies noted my despair at not being able to get my hands on them, because a few days later the items were available at the Shu website! Well, only two of the three oils were for sale, but as Meatloaf sang, two out of three ain't bad.
Here's the Shanghai oil:
The Tokyo cleansing oil:
The Seoul cleansing oil was not available, but I consoled myself with one of the palettes.
I couldn't find anything of note on Tsuyoshi Hirano - no interviews, no biography, nothing! Even stranger is that there is no mention of him at the Shu website.
If anyone can send me a link to information on the artist I would greatly appreciate it, especially since I will be posting on Shu's Unmask/Blossom Dream spring 2013 collection, which also includes Hirano's illustrations.
