PARIS — The white cat with the arresting blue eyes — and 40,000 Twitter followers — describes her namesake makeup line as follows: “Glamorpuss luxury.”Revealing details of its holiday makeup collection in collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld and his pampered pet Choupette, Japanese makeup brand Shu Uemura said the range includes eye shadow in a shade approximating the famous feline’s peepers, plus dramatic false eyelashes incorporating pink feathers, silver highlights and crystals.Sketches of the cat by Lagerfeld — who uses Shu Uemura makeup to hand-color them — adorn the packaging of cleansing oil, an under-base mousse, eye and lip palettes, glitter powder and blush compacts.To be sold under the Shupette by Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura label, the range extends to a brush set, a silver makeup trunk, nail enamel and an eyelash curler with a Shupette charm in the shape of a stamp.Kakuyasu Uchiide, Shu Uemura’s international artistic director, also conceived four “cat eye” looks with various allures.This marks a return engagement to Shu Uemura for Lagerfeld, who did a holiday collection in 2012 that shipped to some 400 doors.The beauty brand and Lagerfeld are also launching a competition on Instagram starting Oct. 1, inviting people to post selfies and cat snaps to win a signed makeup trunk.
