For this year's Christmas limited-edition palette, Shiseido collaborates with legendary Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto via his Y's brand. To see the meeting of two giants of Japanese makeup and design artistry is something special and the palette is definitely a collectible in the making.

Y's designed the vibrant camellia motifs as well as the quirkly asymmetrical packaging, while Shiseido Art Director Dick Page filled the palette with fresh, camellia-inspired hues. And with tones like Japonica, a glimmering gold and our personal favourite — the crisp, hot pink Winter Rose — you're bound to get lots of wear out of the colours inside. To recreate model Sui He's look (above) Page used Snow, Winter Rose and Velvet on her eyes and Winter Rose on her cheeks
