Karl Lagerfeld is no stranger when it comes to working with Shu Uemura – in fact, the famed designer has been using Shu Uemura’s eyeshadows to color his collections for the past two decades. Here are some information in bite-sized pieces:

  • Shu Uemura x Karl Lagerfeld’s collection is named Shupette”, after his pet cat, Choupette (french, pronounced as “shu-pette”)
  • This is Karl’s second Holiday  collection with Shu Uemura – the previous was in 2012 with a mascot he created called Mon Shu.
  • Choupette belonged to a male model – Karl house-sat the cat, fell in love with it and simply refused to give it back
  • The feline has her own instagram account and has over 40,000 followers as of blog entry
  • The cat has its own iPad, 2 maids, and a book dedicated to it (coming soon)

Tip from Shu Uemura was to "just use/dispense a LITTLE bit" - I just press my finger over it and inverted the bottle to get color on my fingers!

Thankfully the lighting was great enough to capture those fine shimmer! But in reality it is very, very, very shiny and I did not try this on my face - however I was advised that if I had huge pores, this would actually accentuate it > <
