If you're looking for cute, quirky collectable make-up products then Shupette by Shu Uemura will be your best bet. When kittens (that too Mr Lagerfeld's own!) and Karl Lagerfeld come together, I feel there couldn't be a better collaboration for Shu. It's a playful collection, so don't expect it to be a make-up artists dream, loaded with full on pigmentation. An easily wearable collection, it's great for everyday wear. Having said that, it is slightly pricey but as I said, if you're looking for a Christmas present for a fashionista who is inspired by Mr. Lagerfeld or someone obsessed with make-up and kittens, then this would make a perfectly apt gift idea.
The eye shadow trio is nicely pigmented, with a sheer to medium throw on colour and a slightly glistening finish. The shadows go on smooth and last for a good few hours. The lip trio on the other hand is gorgeous! The shades are well picked for A/W, the pigmentation is really nice and the finish is lush and glossy, two thumbs up. If you're like me and don't like to make a mess of all your full sized lipsticks in your handbag, then this lip trio is a lovely one to have handy for on the go pout perfection. It's a universal fact that Shu Uemura lash curlers are the very best in the industry, even amidst pros. A nice touch to this one is added charm containing Shupette artwork. If you're looking to buy one for a lash lover or thinking of refreshing your decade old tool, this is the time to invest in a cuter one.
The collection also has some gorgeous wacky lashes for the festive season and a lovely make-up bag which you need to check out next time you're in Selfridges. If you were to get at least one thing from the collection, I'd say get the lip trio or the eye lash curlers depending on what you'd use more of. Oh and based on my recent travels with bulky and heavy make-up stash, I'd like to mention the packaging is very travel friendly.
