Cats. Cats. Cats.
A combination like no other.
Shu Uemura Shupette
The Shu Uemura x Karl Lagerfeld 2014 Holiday Collection
Needless to say, the last time I got this excited about a make up line was when Paul & Joe did their Kitty themed collection of cat cuteness. I can openly admit, that the only time I have ever tried Shu Uemura products was when my boyfriend was living with his pal who had a Japanese girlfriend. She left her super sassy Shu Uemura cleansing oil in the bathroom and I unwittingly used it, not realising it was set to be one of my favourite face washing experiences ever. Because it was a few years ago, before I was even aware of beauty brands beyond Boots, I immediately googled it and found a whole new world which was shining, shimmering and oh-so-splendid.
I suppose this is as good a time as any to introduce the all singing, all dancing, brand new line of cuteness from the Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura range. ‘Shupette’ is available at Selfridges and even has an interactive site dedicated to the fashionable feline herself, which you can visit here, where you can chat to Shupette about all things beauty! If you’re not familiar with who Shupette is, then she is the prissy princess kitty cat belonging to that sunglasses wearing fashion fella Karl Lagerfeld. The most spoiled cat in the entire land, she lives a life which my poor Kitty could only dream of.
Now despite being an aficionado of all things affordable, I cannot claim that the Shupette range comes in at a bargainous price – In fact, these teeny tiny little lip palettes and eyeshadow sets will sting your purse for £30 a piece. I was lucky enough to be sent them because I was unable to attend their recent event in London, and clearly due to my over enthusiasm and upset in my email reply, the kind lady took pity and popped them in the post! They’re so precious I can’t even bring myself to waste a swatch of them on a blog post and I’m waiting until I buy some brand new make up brushes before I even think about using them. Instead it has spurred me on to make a wishlist of all the other products I NEED to own from the range. I mean c’mon… Cats. Make up. Cute. Wow. So if anyone has any make up brush recommendations, please let me know. It’s definitely an area I lack in. Yeah I could of waited until I got some brushes to post this blog, but then I would have missed national cat day too. So yknow.
The two products featured, which I DARE TO NOT TOUCH, are the Shu Uemura x Lagerfeld Shupette Eyeshadow Trio (here) in Tokyo Kawaii – A luxurious little selection of pink toned eye shadows with a slight glitter hue. And the Shu Uemura x Lagerfeld Shupette lip trio, once again in Toyko Kawaii (here) purrfect for adding a pop of pink to any pout.
