I’m going to start this post with a confession: I am NOT a cat person. Sorry! I’m just not. I mean, they’re ok-I don’t hate them or anything, but I would never want one. So when the Karl Lagerfeld Shupette for Shu Uemura Collection was announced, I wasn’t all goo-goo eyes for it like every other cat obsessed beauty blogger. To be honest, I’m not a fan of the man first of all. I mean, didn’t he steal Choupette(that’s how you actually spell the cat’s name) from someone or something like that? Who does that? And who lets Karl do that? I mean, why? I don’t get it. Wouldn’t you say: Karl, DUDE. HANDS OFF MA CAT?
The other thing that I don’t care for? Is the design of the Shu Uemura Choupette/Shupette-I mean the cartoon drawing created of it. I think it’s….creepy…*cringes while everyone screams NO IT’S NOT TRACY*
Case in point: I showed my hubby the little Shupette USB Drive and he said to me, and I quote,“Why does that cat look like Colonel Sanders?”
And I couldn’t stop laughing for about 30 minutes straight. 😀
Anyhoooooo, creepy Colonel Sanders Cat aside, the Karl Lagerfeld’s Shupette for Shu Uemura Collection is BEAUTIFUL. Be prepared for a lot of cat-puns in the names and descriptions… And a LOT of pictures too.
Karl Lagerfeld Shupette for Shu Uemura Pampearl-me Face Powder($50.00)
A colorless shimmer powder with kitty-soft silky texture and gentle pink and gold sparkles.
See the paw prints on the poof? There’s cat paw prints all over the collection and packaging.
I love the mesh screen! Makes it easy to get powder on the poof, although I’d use a big fluffy brush if you’re going to use this as a setting powder.
You can see the sparkles in there. And a heavy swatch really shows the pink glow you get from it.
It’s a gorgeous powder! Really finely milled and looks gorgeous on the skin. LOVE.
Karl Lagerfeld Shupette for Shu Uemura My Precious Glitter Set $58.00
This is a loose powder glitter trio in shades of pink, gold and platinum, with more cat paw prints on the packaging.
They have a neat design too, with a little hole so that you can pour as much glitter as your heart desires into the lid. Although, it’s a little hard to control so be careful.
Really pretty! If you love glitter for the holidays, then this is a great little set to get.
Karl Lagerfeld Shupette for Shu Uemura Eye Need Shu Trio 01 and 02 ($45 each)
The stars of the collection have to be these eyeshadow trios!
What’s cool, is that you can actually remove the eyeshadows really easily and put them in another palette if you wish. I love that about Shu Shadows. You can create your own perfect palette. But, if you like the Colonel Sanders Cat, then you’d probably want to keep them in these LE Shupette cases. 😛
DUDES. That blue eyeshadow palette is like a dream come true for me! It’s SO awesome. If you’re like me and love blue eyeshadows then you need it. You too can have Shupette’s Blue Eyes! Just click on the image to get a really good view of the blue!
SEE? I die. These shadows just GLOWWWWWW, like Ice Ice Baby! So perfect for winter. I’ll be wearing this trio a lot!
The pink ones are just as awesome too!
I lined my waterline with a sliver eyeliner for a little more ice! It’s winter here already, so I’m all about the icy, snow queen looks right now. That’ll last until about the end of January, when I’ll be wishing for winter to be over haha!
The coppery brown makes the pinks wearable don’t you think? The eyeshadows in both trios blend like a dream, and last all day over a primer.
So, even if I’m not a fan of cat stealing Karl and his Colonel Sanders Cat, I am a HUGE fan of these pieces from the Karl Lagerfeld Shupette for Shu Uemura Collection! It’s well worth checking out, and is much more affordable than other LE collections from the brand.
Whaddaya’ think? Isn’t this a pretty collection from Shu Uemura? And seriously, if you have a cat, would you let Karl steal it?
*products sent by the lovely PR for review, thoughts are mine as always because who else would compare a cat to Colonel Sanders besides me?
