And she reminds me of Dora the Explorer:
Some of the items in this Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura Holiday 2012 Collection are classic Shu products repackaged (cleansing oil, lash curler, and the popular UV Base). I admit that the makeup train case caught my eye, probably because I'm on the market for a new one and Mon Shu is cuter than anything else I saw in Sephora or elsewhere.
As for makeup, Lagerfeld created two eye-and-cheek palettes containing six shades each. The palettes are based on smoky green and on smoky purple and at least one of them is supposed to feature a red eye shadow. There's also a dark purple gel eyeliner, four lip shades (Mon Shu Red, Luxe Burgundy, Celebrity Beige and Parisienne Pink). Nail colors come in Karl Black, Shu Shu Red and Royal Beige, and each is sold with a strip of nail stickers featuring Mon Shu. Shu Uemura's specialty, false lashes is represented with two styles. One is made of red-and-black fabric and makes absolutely no sense to cranky middle-aged me:
The collection will make its appearance on the US website and in Canada and the UK in October, later rolling out in the rest of the world. According to WWD the prices are going to be:
Eye-and-cheek palette 69 euros, or $84.65 at current exchange
Lipstick for 29.50 euros, or $36.20
Eyeliner is to be 27 euros, or $33.10
Nail polish- 22 euros, or $27
Premium eyelashes, 56 euros, or $68.70, and the mini eyelashes, 28 euros, or $34.30.
The eyelash curler will retail for 35 euros, or $42.90; the mini brush set, 49 euros, or $60.10, and the makeup box, 300 euros, or $367.80 (!!!). The 450-ml. makeup remover is to be 86 euros, or $105.45, and the base mousse, 46 euros, or $56.40.
What do you think? Are you still excited about this collection? What are you planning to get?
