Karl Lagerfeld for shu uemura Holiday Collection: blackish satin purple painting liner Review, Photos, Swatches

Onwards with Karl Lagerfeld for shu uemura week!

painting liner in blackish satin purple

 The collection has a special edition painting liner in blackish satin purple ($29). It is a violet with golden shimmer. This gel eyeliner is creamy like my favourite MAC Fluidline. The shade itself needs two to three passes to get fully opaque with an eyeliner brush, but to me this works better as a budge-proof cream eyeshadow. Because it is creamy when you put it on, you have about a minute of playtime to blend it as an eyeshadow base. Any longer than that and you are SOL; this liner isn’t going anywhere, baby!

This stuff holds on to skin like its life depends on it. The swatches below stained my arms after my attempt to remove with micellar water. I was only successful at removing it with my shu uemura cleansing oil.

I love to wear purple liner as an alternative to black (case in point: Marcelle’s liner in Amethyst) because it works great for all eye colours. Having it in a gel liner/cream shadow format makes it a must-have for me.

  • That is sooooo beautiful! I must have it!

  • Really like the color, and I love it on you! I have MAC Macroviolet but I don’t use it often enough! I’m so used to having black on my upper lash line!

    • Hey Sunny! You might want to try purple on the lash line + black on the upper waterline. Still defined but with a little extra punch. 😉

    Pretty purple!!! Looks so nice with your brown eyes!

  • What brush do you use? I have it and the brush I have from The Body Shop does not agree with the formula at all. Would appreciate any help. Thank you 🙂
