MON AMI – LAGERFELD’S MON SHU UEMURA
Karl Lagerfeld, head designer and creative director for Chanel, and Shu Uemura, the pioneering Japanese makeup artistry brand, have joined together to create a holiday collection that is both functional and cute. Since 2004, Shu Uemura has reached out to creative types in all industries to create artist collaborations, strengthening the bond between art and beauty. Called Mon Shu Uemura, this collection by Lagerfeld has you covered from eyelashes to nails. And ranging from $18 to $69, aren’t these just the most perfect stocking stuffers?
For a picture-perfect face, we love Karl for Shu Eye & Cheek Palette in Smoky Velvet ($65). With modern colors, transform your face and be a seductive, sophisticated woman ready to hit the town. The limited edition colors and case is designed by Karl Lagerfeld himself, and includes an inner mirror with a cute touch: the shadow of Mon Shu Girl, the Lagerfeld sketch that inspired the collection, appears as a translucent silhouette. The smoky shades include the silky smooth eye shadow in glitter black and deep khaki. The pressed eye shadow adds elegant accents in light silver, mint green, glitter beige, while the dusty rose glow-on blush for cheeks lends an air of luxury. The eye and cheek palette also comes in Prestigious Bordeaux. If that’s not enough, the Mon ShuUemura collection also has Premium Eyelashes ($75) and Mini Eyelashes ($30) so you can bat those long ones at the cutie next to the egg nog table.
For lips that are ready for a New Year’s Eve midnight kiss or a kiss under the mistletoe, Karl for Shu Rouge Unlimited ($30) will do just the trick. From an iconic red to coquettish pale tones like Celebrity Beige,” color your pout with long-lasting moisture and comfort. Cased in a stylish black box, this lipstick will prep you for kisses this holiday season.
Your look isn’t complete until your nails are done. Created in three colors—Royal Beige, Karl Black, and ShuShu Red—Karl for Shu NailColor ($18) is the perfect complement to your holiday outfit. Whether you want to go classic or modern, funky or vintage, these three colors have a long lasting formula and a smooth, satin finish that will elevate any look this season. Add a wink with some nail decals, also found in this collection.
