Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Crystal ShineWednesday, April 23, 2008
Recently I told you about the new Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Crystal Shine which while it is a lipstick, Shu has been promoting it somewhat as an "all over" color as well. I have now had a chance to try out this new product and I love it!
The Rouge Unlimited Crystal Shines have a nice amount of shimmer and a huge array of colors. I tried out 916s (Coral Nude) and 941s (Rosy Nude), both of which are great nude colors. They complement my pale skin tone very well and I think would work well for many people. My favorite is the Rosy Nude, which is a bit translucent but the rose tint is just enough to give me a nice nude lip but not wash me out- Perfect!
I have also tried out the suggestions of Shu's makeup artist Jason Hoffman to use the colors on my eyes and cheeks. I've found that a fairly heavy application of the lipstick is needed for staying power, so the shortcut of just applying from the tube to your eyes is not enough. I used one of my synthetic concealer brushes and was easily able to apply just the right amount of color! I set the lipstick in place with LM Secret Brightening Powder, which preserved the color and helped keep the lipstick in place all day!
I'll be trying out the white in 002s the next time I'm at Shu!
