    Think you know your favorite beauty brands? Think again. In this continuing series, we highlight some of our go-to lines. Read on for some interesting tidbits, plus the rundown on the products that made our list of favorites.

    We were beyond bummed when we learned that Shu Uemura, the Japanese beauty brand renowned for their luxury makeup and cleansing oils, was leaving the U.S. market due to low profitability. What would we do without our favorite makeup artist-beloved essentials — the iconic eyelash curler that made our lashes look long and lush; the cleansing oil that removed every last trace of makeup (even the most long-wearing) from our faces without drying us out?

    Luckily, Shu Uemura have introduced an e-commerce site for all of us who need our Shu shopping fix — and it's got it all. The skin-perfecting night cream, the eyebrow manicure tool that gets us ace arches every time, the most adorable blusher ever, and the pièce de résistance: a fall makeup collection full of rich brown and copper tones, inspired by our most beloved cacao-based treat (yup, we're talkin' chocolate).

    Read on for more Shu Uemura beauty picks that we're craving more than Godiva!
