Gift Guide 2012: Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura Holiday 2012 Collection!

Shu Uemura Holiday 2012 Collection...

Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura Premium False Eyelashes
Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Lipstick in Luxe Burgundy
Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura Nail Color in Karl Black

Ever since I heard about Karl Lagerfeld creating a make-up Holiday 2012 Collection for Shu Uemura I knew it would be something very special! This collection is based around Japanese pop culture... Here are my picks from the entire collection... Black being the iconic colour of the Fashion Godfather, Karl created a nail polish to die for! I love black nail polishes with a twist, Karl Black has predominantly gold glitter and also multicoloured fine glitter mixed in... It's quite punky and dramatic, I love it! Oh and the nail polish comes with nail stickers for some extra fun...

From all the lipstick shades in this collection I felt Luxe Burgundy was most unique... It's a beautiful burgundy shade with warm shimmer... It may not look like much in the bullet but as soon as I applied it I felt like Kate Moss in her party days - that kind of rough punk look again...  If you are not quite sure what the hell I am talking about do not worry, you will be able to see the look I created wearing this lipstick in the next blog post!

Now, the lashes! Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura Premium False Eyelashes are quite something! To start of with they are a real collector's item... I can see someone like Lisa Eldridge owning a pair to keep them in her amazing make-up collection for posterity... They are pretty cool even just to look at, and I think if you have a friend who is a make-up artist or someone who loves to indulge in eclectic items they would seriously love these lashes... They are not for everyone as they are quite out there, very Tokyo and Karl Lagerfeld mixed in one cocktail... Or if you have a special dress-up party to attend and you are brave enough you could try wearing them too...

These eyelashes are not cheap either, but you pay £50 for something that could potentially leave its mark on the make-up history... Things we look back at and admire the beauty of, things like Biba make-up, it was crazy and amazing at the same time... These eyelashes are handmade, and the detail that you see is double sided, so you get exactly the same pattern on both sides of the lashes... And they come in beautiful box as well... It is Karl Lagerfeld after all, of course he would come up with something exclusive and fabulous!



  1. I adore the packaging in this range, I've been umming and ahhing for weeks over the eyeshadow palette in prestigious bordeaux, I think I'm just going to have to give in to the urge to purchase :)
    What a fabby nail polish too xx
