Karl Largerfeld for Shu Uemura Shupette Collection: Review and Swatches
For Holiday 2014, legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld once again partnered with Shu Uemura to create a makeup collection inspired by the designer's beloved birman kitten Choupette. The Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura Shupette Collection features a full range of skincare, makeup, and nail polish products and today I have four pieces from the collection to share with you. To see some swatches, click.......
Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura Pampearl-Me Face Powder ($50 CAD): 
This is a gorgeous and finely-milled shimmer powder. The powder has a very subtle pigmentation, it's almost translucent. The shimmers are very fine, perfect for aapplicationon the cheeks and the brow bone. The lovely jar comes with a silky netting that prevents too much product from dispensing and the powder also comes with an adorable puff applicator.

Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura My Precious Glitter Set ($58 CAD):
This is an adorable eye shimmer trio. The set comes with three mini jars of glitters: one pale white, one pink, and one gold. The little jars have a small opening that dispenses the product. I find the opening a bit small so it actually takes some effort to get enough powder out of the jar (without of course spilling it all over the place).
Although named the My Precious Glitter Set, the powders are very shimmery with no large glitters. The pigmentation is fairly sheer so these work better as glitter toppers over a shadow base.

Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura Eye-Need-Shu Trio Pressed Shadow Palette in ($45 CAD):
These adorable shadow trios feature a variety of gorgeous shadows. "01" features three blue hues (inspired by Coupette's lovely eyes), the formulation is very smooth but the pigmentation is quite sheer. "02" features some warm pinks. The pigmentation of this set is slightly better (especially the metallic burgundy) and the shadows are all very soft and smooth.

Overall:
How cute is this collection? I am totally in love with the Pampearl-Me shimmer powder. The glitter set would make an adorable stocking stuffer for younger girls but I think the pigmentation of the shadows could be made better.
