Things grow on you sometimes, don’t they? This beauty must-have has been around for a bit and and we’re still loving it! It’s German born fashion giant Karl Lagerfeld’s collaboration with cult Japanese beauty brand Shu Uemura featuring his own hand-illustrated packaging.
As if Karl didn’t already have enough cool points (he was once creative director at Chanel and he’s friends with Cara Delevingne), he’s also turned his hand to creating amazing beauty packaging. The Mon Shu (or ‘my darling Shu’) collection is a celebration of Japanese pop and European chic, brought together in Karl Lagerfeld’s very own hand-drawn illustrations.
We love the super cute mini make-up box which folds out to six tiers and has removable trays – perfect for any girl with a make-up collection bordering on being obsessive. It doesn’t come cheap at £300, but can you really put a price on owning make-up storage that has been designed by Karl Lagerfeld?! This is a must-have for any make-up artist/addict who wants to travel in style.
Shu Uemura’s cult Premium Cleansing Oil (£56.50) has also been treated to the Lagerfeld redesign for a limited time only and it’s well worth keeping hold of if you’re a Shu Uemura fan – we bet these are going to be collectables in a few years! The red and white false eyelashes (£50) in the collection are also pretty amazing if you’re brave enough to wear them, but if not, no doubt these will become collectors’ items too. Shu Uemura are famous for their amazing eyelash curlers, and Karl Lagerfeld’s take on them makes them even better – how cute is the little keychain addition?!
