The world met the adorable little Mon Shu, a Karl Lagerfeld creation and the "face" of the collaboration between him and Japanese cosmetics company Shu Uemura, earlier this week. Now we have some details about what's going to be in the collection itself.

Lagerfeld told WWD, “I wanted to invent my personal vision of a Japanese manga." To that end the collection will include fake lashes made out of red and black fabric. Oh and there's also a red eye shadow. “Red is a symbolic color for Karl Lagerfeld, because he always dreamed of a red eye shadow to make his sketches," a Shu Uemura makeup artist told WWD. "So they created it in this palette for him."

The collection has two eye and cheek palettes, one of the brand's iconic eyelash curlers featuring a Mon Shu charm, and even nail polish--complete with Mon Shu nail stickers. You'll be able to snag the line in the UK, US (online), and Canada in October. Pieces will range in price from $27 for the nail polish to $85 for a palette, so this definitely falls in the luxury price category. The priciest thing in the collection, a Kyoto-made makeup box, is $367.80.
