I have been a fan of Shu Uemura since my aunt introduced me to the eyelash curler and lipsticks nearly a decade ago. The Shupette by Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura collection, however, is going down in the books as one of the most fashionable and memorable. Most of you know I am a new fur momma to Beau (who is always trying to lick my face), but I lived with my best friend and her two cats Crystal and Tucker for many years. So as an ode to the Shupette collection and my love for both pooches and kitties, Beau and I posed for an "opposites attract" themed photo!
The Shupette collection is inspired by Karl Lagerfeld's fashionable feline companion Choupette, who is quite famous in her own right.
I love the little paw prints that string the entire collection together. Shupette is a flattering, wearable, cohesive Holiday release, and I am so glad to see more variety in the lip colors! I can always appreciate good red, but I love the unexpected additions of the baby pink and pale peach. The eyeshadows are supremely soft and pigmented — consistent quality that we have come to expect from Shu Uemura. This Eye & Lip palette is the perfect balance between warm and cool tones, so it will compliment any skin tone.
Now, a large palette might be a bit overwhelming for some, so try the Shupette Eye Trio and Lip Trio if you prefer traveling lighter. The quality of the trios is excellent, on par with the eyeshadows and lipsticks in the palette. The Shupette 4-pc Brush Set, however, is one holiday exclusive that you should scoop up as soon as possible! Most brush sets are not worth the splurge, but the silver envelope clutch and all four of the brushes are excellent quality! For the price, it is a bargain.
I also love the Pam-Pearl Powder, which is a shimmering loose powder that I use strictly as a highlighter. It mimics the effect of my beloved Cle de Peau Lumizing Face Enhancers, but the Pam-Pearl is much more affordable! It pairs well with either of the Silk Cushion blushes, some of the most natural satin blushes on the market. Check out the swatches of both pink and orange below!
The US site does not have the Shupette Drawing Pencils in stock, but I wanted to feature them nonetheless. I love the Drawing Pencils, and these shimmering formulas are exceptionally gorgeous!
More details are in the video below, so please watch the tutorial to see my wearable version of the Shupette look in action! And yes, I wore the cat ear headband because I couldn't resist.
