Finally, the much awaited collaboration of Shu Uemura with Karl Lagerfeld is here and I am so happy to be one of the first people to have seen it, and experienced all the wonderful makeup goodies that will be out in Shu Uemura stores by October 20, 2012. The event took place at Umu Japanese Restaurant in Dusit Hotel in Makati.
Here’s a peek of the Karl Lagerfeld x Shu Umura Holiday 2012 Colleciton
The Karl Lagerfeld collection includes makeup brushes, eyeshadow palettes, lipstick, cleansing oil, UV underbase, eye primer, eyelash curler and falsies that are all adorned with the cute image of the Mon Shu Girl!
Mon Shu Girl is drawn by Karl Lagerfeld using Shu Uemura makeup btw! This makeup palette is to-die-for!
There was a live makeup demo by Shu Uemura’s accredited makeup artist Patrick Alcober and John Pagaduan using the two makeup palettes from the collection. It is also to show their own interpretations of a real life Mon Shu girl!

And of course the best part of the event! Going home with my very own, first dibs of the Karl Lagerfeld x Shu Uemura Holiday 2012 Collection x Mon Shu Girl! Yay!
A tote, falsies, lippies and nail color! Woot!
And yes my very own Mon Shu Girl doll!
I super love the Mon Shu girl, in fact as I write she’s staring at me right now! LOL! My mom was so funny though first time she sees Mon Shu, she said, “What did they do to Dora the Explorer? Why is her eyes so red!” LMAO! My mom is so funny sometimes. The daughter loves Mon Shu she kissed her right away! But I love it more, especially when I can see it in my makeup! Hahaha!
I’ll be trying out the nail color later I got the Karl Black, I tried the Red lippies at the event already and I love it!
