The Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura Holiday Collection is perhaps the most awaited of them all this 2012. It features sophisticated colors picked out by none other than Mr Lagerfeld himself, with a quirky muse, Mon Shu Girl, to represent the glam yet aloof theme of the collection. It's been out since mid-October so you should hurry while there are still stocks of the limited edition pieces!

As you can see, it's a pretty extensive collection. Go for the palettes if you love daring sultry eyes, lipsticks if you like shine and sparkle, and brushes if you're looking for a handy travel set. I feel that you can miss the nail polishes since they don't particularly stand out in terms of quality and color selection, as well as the limited ed lash curler. The avant garde falsies though are of course Shu's specialty, so get this set if you're a makeup artist or just really love fun lashes!
So! Today I'm going to review the Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited in Celebrity Beige (P1,350).
This is much like the Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Shine lippies when it comes to the level of shine and slinkiness on the lips. It's light, non-drying, and leaves an au natural stain when it's all gone. It stays on for a decent three hours - as with most moisturizing, light lipsticks - so you will have to retouch every so often during the day. That's SOP really.
Celebrity Beige is a nude peachy beige that's super shiny yet a tad frosty due to the shimmer. It comes out sheer on the first layer, but you can easily build it up to a more opaque finish after a couple more swipes.
It's a lovely everyday shade that can match most looks you have in mind. I don't have anything quite like it yet, so I'm inclined to think that it's special enough to merit the P1,000+ you'll be plunking on it.
Overall, the Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Shine in Celebrity Beige is a great lipstick that's the type one would actually finish to the dregs. It's a wearable color and texture, and hey, it's not everyday that you'll get to own something Karl Lagerfeld designed. Get it if you're looking for a luxe lip this season! Now that I mention it this is a great color to match with smoldering eyes on an evening out. ;)
