First Look: Shupette – Shu Uemura x Karl Lagerfeld (Again!) Holiday Collection 2014

I can almost envision the amount of work piling up for the whole of next week so while I still have a tad bit of breathing space, I might as well throw this mention up first!

After all, this is a really quick look which, if anything, may not be the most informative in terms of how the colors portray, how the items swatch and all but if you’re so smittened with the Shupette collection that you don’t mind seeing 90123989324 photos of the items then… here you go!

This is really a hit and run post given these images are fresh from a couple nights ago and fresh from the phone. Save for a bit of color editing because the lighting was quite horrid but, we make do with what we have, yes?

 

I didn’t bother with swatches at the cozy event we had with Zee and Fuan of Shu Uemura because lighting conditions were quite blah but I did swatch some pieces, for the feel of the product, and while they carry through with the soft effortless touch of color and whisper of sheen / shimmer, the shadows and creams are nice and smooth to the touch.

Easy to blend, soft and natural pigmentation with easy color build up – great for a fresh faced look especially since it is likely that this collection is aimed towards a younger demographic given the cutesy imagery and packaging.

Not to say the mature ladies cannot indulge in their cat-woman feels with this! Especially with the bolder, but still fairly wearable, lip colors within the lip bons bons or Shupette Has It All Palette.

Okay, enough talk, here’s the lovely makeup mess we had the joy to play with that night!

It’s quite a rapid picture spam so… just scroll on, check the names / prices (which will be captions) and, enjoy! I’ll try to skip out on text from here on.

One focal point of this collection, Shupette / Choupette the cat aside, would be the emphasize on her sapphire blue eyes which gets played up with the packaging of this collection.

If you take a closer look, her eyes (in the illustration) flash a beautiful metallic blue when it hits the light. Otherwise, her eyes are also made the star in the super adorable furry pouch that comes with the Shupette Has It All Eye and Lip palette.

I’ll be back with more information and of course swatches of the items I have on hand even though there are loads of in-depth mentions, swatches and all online already given how highly anticipated this collection is.

This collection is just calling out to my inner crazy cat lady (I lurrrrrrve cats. LOVE) and the stylized illustration of Shupette is absolutely darling. Though the kitty cat herself seems a lot less wide-eyed and innocent and a lot more grumpy / bratty but… she is a diva who eats on the table with Karl Lagerfeld so, what can we say, heh!

If you want to get your hands on some Shupette, here are the details of where to find her and when!

Shupette will be launching 24th October at Shu Uemura ION and 1st November island-wide

 

Thanks for reading!

I can’t wait to get swatchin’ with the little bits of Shupette I have on hand!
