2014 Holiday Beauty Gift Find - Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura Shupette Rouge Bonbon Fantasy Trio - 02

You have to hand it to uber famous fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld - he sure knows how to mix up his passions for fashion, product design, photography - and he has a knack for getting lots of press coverage doing it!

Here's another great gift idea!  Karl Lagerfeld for
 Shu Uemura Shupette with love from Paris brush set
With Karl's love of color and, in particular, Shu Uemura lip/eye pencils (which he's used for years to actually sketch many of his famous creations), he and Shu Uemura have come up with a brilliant, limited edition collection.

Based on his real life gorgeous cat, Choupette (which is actually French for what would be like 
"sweetie" in the U.S.), he and Shu Uemura have created some fan and fanciful products perfect for the die hard Shu Uemura fan, and any makeup lovers.

The line has a cute Japanese spin on the cat's name (get it? "Shu" pette?) and fresh original illustrations of Karl's cat (with it's real life BLUE eyes) by Karl himself.  With the limited edition artwork on every piece in the line, there are so many products perfect for gift giving this season.
My favorite item is the Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura x Shupette Lim Ed. Rouge Bonbon Fantasy Trio - 02.  In the palette there 3 warm shades -two beautiful pinks (a bubblegum and a fuchsia) and a deep cherry red. The finish is a luscious sheen, and the colors have lots of pigment combined with a lightweight texture that's a hybrid of a gloss and a lipstick.

The lip formula is moisturizing and has nice lasting power, although it's not billed as a long wear product.  The three colors look great on their own, or mixed together if you want to get creative.
This is one gift you may want to add a 2nd into your online cart just for you! - RLB
