Now he merges his world with shu uemura’s to create an entire collection in homage to the brand-the color selection and packaging is entirely designed by Karl Lagerfeld who also photographed the visual campaign.

Deborah Lippmann Sweet Dreams Nail Lacquer

Deborah Lippmann Sweet Dreams Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “candied pink” and has a “3D holographic” finish. It’s a brightened, medium-dark fuchsia pink with gold-to-orange flakies. It has a jelly-like finish and look to it. I don’t have anything that looks like this, but if you had a brightened pink jelly and a flakie top coat, you could probably dupe it that way. Zoya Lara is similar in color but has a cream finish. OCC Palare is slightly bluer in tone and doesn’t have a jelly-like finish.

Guerlain Sous Le Vent (200) Shine Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Sous Le Vent (200) Shine Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “warm caramel.” It’s a medium rosy brown with a beige shimmer-sheen. It looks rosier on the lips due to the natural pink tones of my lip color, while the beige shimmer translates into more of a general white frost/shimmer. Cle de Peau T9 is creamier, peachier. Dior Coral Crystal is a bit darker. MAC Can’t Get Enough is more bronze. NARS Love Devotion is sheerer and more coral. Chanel Ruban Rose is similar but more frosted.
