Yes, I’ll put my hand up and admit it: I’m an absolute sucker for cutsey cosmetic marketing involving cats. I nearly fainted upon discovering Karl Lagerfeld’s recent cooperation with Shu Uemura. The King’s super cute cat Choupette has been chosen to front Shu Uemura’s holiday make-up campaign.
The collection includes eyeshadows in minky cat colours, feline eyelashes, soft-as-paws cream blushers and a cleanser imprinted with the world’s most famous kitty.
While the eyeshadows look dangerously gaudy in bright blue and pink, applied to the eyelid, they are very wearable. I own the “eye-need-shu trio 02 Tokyo Kawaii” which includes a shimmery (but not too shimmery) burgundy brown, a sheer, subtle pink and an ivory shimmer shade.
Above: The “Shupette has it all” palette includes 8 eyeshadows and 4 bright lipstick colours, supersoft blushers and two eyeshadow palettes in Parisienne and Tokyo Kawaii.
Above: On my eyelids, I’m wearing all four colours of the “Shupette has it all” palette: A sheer pink, a warm bronze, a burgundy brown and a shimmery ivory. Paris Earrings by Les Nereides.
