Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Sheer Shine

September 29, 2015

I am a huge fan of Shu Uemura’s Rouge Unlimited lipsticks for their bold pops of colour and silky glide on the lips. When I heard they were launching a whole new range of light melting balm-like lipsticks, I was ecstatic!  And today I’d like to introduce you to the new Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Sheer Shine, along with swatches of all 12 shades for your viewing pleasure!

Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Sheer Shine

Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Sheer Shine is a new, permanent collection of lipsticks that combines the lip-loving emollience of lip balms with vibrant hybrid pigment.  The result is a super slick lipstick that packs bright, fun colours with a shiny finish.

These new Sheer Shine lipsticks are formulated with candlelit extract wax to provide a glossy shine and ensures the lipsticks adhere well to the lips without migrating.  Macadamia Nut paste lend a soft melting texture to the lipstick so it glides on easily.  Other emollient shiny oils give the lipsticks their moisturising feel and lightweight texture.

Here are some arm swatches of all 12 shades that are currently available:

I received 4 shades and was able to put them through the paces in person.  And here are some lip swatches to give you an idea of how they look in real life.

Though described as sheer, I was surprised to find the amount of colour and level of opacity of these Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Sheer Shine lipsticks are actually quite good.  Most of them are quite buildable, and in particular PK357 goes up to almost full opacity.  The finish is a lustrous shine and all 4 feel incredibly comfortable on my lips.  They don’t last particularly long as can be imagined of something with this much slip, but they also did not migrate out of my lips, fading gently and evenly instead.

Before I leave you, here are the corresponding full makeup looks so you can view the lips in context.

    They all look gorgeous on you. I haven’t tried any Shu Uemura lip products but it always annoys me when they don’t give their shades names and rather give them codes. Names are so much more memorable!

    What beautiful jewel tones and what a flattering finish–shiny without looking greasy or heavy. Those colors you’re wearing all look lovely on you. I love a good “shine” formula and favor balmy lipsticks for daily wear, but so often the pigmentation is disappointing. These seem like the perfect combination of translucence and pigmentation.

    They look gorgeous on you, Linda! I agree they are more pigmented than I expected. Very comfortable too. I’ve been wearing OR550 quite a bit and I love it! PK357 does pack a punch eh? LOVE IT!
