Karl Lagerfeld x Shu Uemura x Umu

12 Oct

Last October 9, 2012, it was time to unveil the Mon Shu Girl 🙂

Karl Lagerfeld and Shu Uemura has done a collaboration for this holiday’s collection!  This was so exciting for all of us because a few weeks before this launch, we already knew what was in the collection and also were trained how to use the products.  (More of the training in my next post!)  Mon Shu Girl is the cute little girl that is on all of the packaging for this Karl Lagerfeld x Shu Uemura collection 🙂

This exclusive and intimate event was going to be held at Umu, the awesome Japanese restaurant in Dusit Thani Hotel 🙂

Yey. Yey. Hooray.

Call time was 11am.  And as most of you know, a hungry makeup artist is not really the best person you’d want to deal with. Hahaha! Sooooo… LUNCH FIRST 🙂

A feast of Japanese food was waiting for us at UMU… Ok, time to dig in, people!!! 🙂

Meet cutie makeup artist, John Pagaduan 🙂  He’ll be doing a quick demo on how to use the KL Palettes to the bloggers’ event that afternoon.  Looking fresh and radiant, sis!!! 🙂

The Mon Shu models 🙂
