Retro is back, baby, because Mario in all his pixelated '80s goodness is gracing Shu Uemura's festive offerings in what is possibly the most arcade-inspired collection yet. An original collaboration between the Japanese beauty brand and the cult classic platform game, this is the makeup edit any girl who grew up alongside her Nintendo would have mega throwback feels over — before digging said gaming console out of the reliquary to re-live Super Mario Bros all over again.

Expect crowd faves such as the Ultime Cleansing Oil, the Blanc Chroma cushions, and the Rouge Unlimited lippies to sport Mario's likeness (with Princess Peach, the Fire Flower and the Super Mushroom making cameos). Even the cult Shu Uemura eyelash curler has an adorable invincibility star charm. Furthermore, the colourful cast of characters extends to in-game enemies like Bloopers and Cheap Cheaps bedecking the playful packaging. Limited edition goodies include an utterly adorable eye and cheek palette — embossed with iconic Mario motifs, no less — a four-piece travel brush set, and a chic, matte black makeup case to carry it all in. It's game on, girls.

The Shu Uemura x Super Mario Bros collection is available exclusively online at Tangs from 1 November, and 10 November at Shu Uemura boutiques, and 15 November at Shu Uemura counters
