Finally, the collection of the most awaited collaboration of the year in both fashion and beauty industries has been launched here in Manila! I never failed to mention how excited I am with the Shu Uemura x Karl Lagerfeld collaboration, as seen in THIS POST and THIS POST. Shall I say, this is the grandest event of the year for both industries?

The launch was held at UMU Restaurant, Dusit Hotel. And who greeted me the moment I entered?


Of course, the one who invited me- Mon Shu Girl! Ahhh… Sooo cute! She’s such an adorable little girl! 😀 Oooh, and do you know that Karl Lagerfeld actually drew Mon Shu Girl using Shu Uemura makeup? Well, he’s used to it since even before this collaboration, he has been using Shu Uemura makeup too for his sketches! Cool!


We were all welcomed by Nina Solano and Karen Crisostomo of Shu Uemura. They gave a short introduction on the Karl Lagerfeld x Shu Uemura Holiday 2012 Collection.

And to introduce the Karl Lagerfeld x Shu Uemura Holiday 2012 Collection, Shu Uemura makeup artists John Pagaduan and Patrick Alcober, did a makeup demo on real life Mon Shu Girls!

Oh my, that Bordeaux Palette is LOVE!!! I want! I want! I want! 😀



After the makeup demo, here are more real life Mon Shu Girls!


Nadia Bautista then presented to us the entire collection…


Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura Collection includes: eye shadow palettes, lipsticks, painting liner, nail polish, tsuya skin uv under base mousse, eyelash curler, false eyelashes, mini brush set, cleansing oil, and mini makeup box! Of course, all of them have an illustration of Mon Shu Girl!


Here are a few more photos during the event:




So, what are you eyeing from the Karl Lagerfeld x Shu Uemura Holiday 2012 Collection? As for me, my red eyes are now on the Bordeaux Palette, lovely cleansing oil bottle, and the eyelash curler! How about you? Start thinking now before you head on to Shu Uemura boutiques on October 20, 2012! I tell you, you have to rush as I have this feeling all these will be selling like hotcakes! It’s a limited edition collection, you know! 😉

As always, thank you and congratulations Shu Uemura Philippines, Nina Solano, Karen Crisostomo, and Nadia Bautista! It was such a grand and fun event! 😀

Weee!!! We went home with a Mon Shu goodies! I’m excited to try them and review! Thanks again, Shu Uemura Philippines! 😀
