Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Shine.




i bought two of Shu Uemura's Rouge Unlimited Supreme Shine lipsticks last fall, Maureen helped me to pick them up during the Black Friday Sale.
the lipsticks come in a clear plastic packaging with silver metallic inner tube so you can see the colour well, they contain 3.4g of product and retail for 30$.
these are glossy lipsticks with medium pigmentation. both shades i chose contain very fine multicolour shimmer that doesn't feel gritty at all. the shimmer isn't too visible in normal daylight, it just adds to the shine, but it's sparkling in the sun. the formula is creamy and soft, it's melting like butter on your lips. the pigmentation of both can be sheer with 1 layer or medium when built up, the result is a very shiny, non-goopy and non-sticky finish. these lippies are free of scent, a relieve for those with a sensitive nose. lasting time is quite short as usual with these shiny lipsticks, i get about 2-3 hours out of them before the shine wears off. but even then, a thin film of balm and shimmer remains for a few more hours, keeping the lips moisturised and looking extremely velvety.

swatched directly from the bullet, 1 swipe and 3 swipes


shade PK 340 is described as soft pink with warm undertone on the official website. it contains gold and pink microshimmer. this is an easy-to-wear happy pink.
i've worn this shade for a girl's night out, when i came home at 3am or so i went to remove my makeup and was shocked by the sexy lip i suddenly saw in the mirror. my pout looked soft and lush thanks to some remaining colour and the shimmer wrapped around my lips to give them a faint balmy shine. this is a true bedroom lip, ladies! even i wanted to kiss them ;D
now, i often wear these lipsticks blotted to get the look right away...

BG 395 is described as beigey pink with cool undertone on the website, it contains mainly pink and champagne microshimmer. it's a flattering beige-rose on me, i can't do paler "nudes".

  2. Oh my goodness, these are SO super gorgeous!!! I'm so glad I wear lipstick now because I NEED these! For a long time I was really scared of lipstick, but then I discovered the beauty of a sheer, moisturizing formula and now I'm hooked! I've actually never tried anything from Shu besides the lash curler, so I'm really excited to try these!! :D

    1. i think lipsticks of today are easier to wear than ever before. there's so much to choose from and all sorts of shades, intensities, finishes, etc. i was also one of those who didn't like the effort a classic lipstick takes. these sheer formulas are a perfect middle ground for us, though! easy to apply and to wear, subtle result and a finish inbetween lippie and shiny gloss without being as thick as a gloss. i hope you try these soon!

  3. I love this lipstick a lot! I find the color blends very well with my lip color. I also like the shine of this lipstick, it's not too much and it brighten up my face. I am thinking to get a nude color from this range too :)

    1. you're so right! the opacity is great to add some lively colour but sheer enough to blend well with your natural colouring so it suits all different skintones. i also want to get another shade, probably a peachy orange ;)
