shu uemura’s chic makeup box lands in Hainan
shu uemura Travel Retail Asia Pacific has collaborated with Lagardère Travel Retail China to bring its makeup box pop-up to Hainan Tourism Duty Free (HTDF) Shopping Complex.
The box is inspired by Mr. Shu uemura’s signature Hollywood makeup box in black and red, offering Hainan travelers an immersive experience infused with innovation and brand heritage.
Hainan travelers were invited to step into Mr. Shu uemura’s makeup box to explore, play, create and master their own beauty from September 15-30.
The jet-black facade and red kinu satin ribbon entryway made an edgy chic and bold statement for the pop-up. Visitors were invited to immerse in four creative experiential checkpoints:
秀 shu, 色 pigment, 粧 styling atelier and 楽 shu selfie.
• “秀 shu” showcased the legacy of Mr. shu uemura, with exclusive stories from his first makeup box in Hollywood to the star products today;
• “色 pigment” highlighted the newly launched rouge unlimited kinu satin lipsticks with a mobile game for visitors to discover the nature-inspired lip shades and silk-like gliding textures;
• “粧 styling atelier” featured a one-on-one consultation with a professional shu uemura makeup stylist, alongside a virtual makeup try-on powered by ModiFace’s augmented reality technology;
• “楽 shu selfie” enabled visitors to take selfies with customized shu stickers to share on social media to create social buzz.
