Shu Uemura’s new Shupette collection (a collaboration with the iconic Karl Lagerfeld) is just too cute to resist. Choupette, in case you didn’t know (where have you been?!) is his very-much pampered cat; so Shupette is the cat’s name combined with the brand’s name. Clever huh?
The sickly sweet pink packaging and illustrations of tiny white cats make this range a piece of girly heaven, and almost too pretty to use. However, like everything else i’ve tried from Shu Uemura, the quality is superb, so i’ve been ignoring the prettiness and digging right in.
The eyeshadows (in the ‘eye-need-shu trio’) are highly pigmented and very long-lasting. They also blend really well too. I’ll be combining a pink smokey eye with some silver eyeliner for a frosty Winter look.
The lip colours (from the ‘rouge bonbon fantasy trio’) are creamy and glossy and easy to apply. The colours are strong, vibrant and really pack a punch. They last a long-time (and several drinks) too.
My only complaint is the size in collaration with the price. The pallettes are the tiniest i’ve ever seen and so don’t justify their £30 price tag due to the amount of product you are getting. However, if you love the novelty factor, nothing will stop you snapping these up anyway.
You can purchase these Shu Uemura Shupette palettes online at Selfridges for £30 each.
