Shu Uemura Lacque Supreme Shimmers – Swatches and Review

Shu Uemura is launching a new range of Laque Supreme, now it’s with shimmers!

Shu Uemura often collaborates with artists for their launches, and this time, Shu Uemura collaborates with a well known Japanese lacquer ware brand, Yamada Heiando. Yamada’s work has been established since 1918 in Japan and has been used by Japan Imperial family. Heiando’s artwork is very detailed and now, Shu Atelier is collaborating with Yamada Heiando to developed lip lacquer with dimensional shimmer by combining scintillating gold and silver powders.

The special thing to note about this launch is of course the shimmers contained in the tube. The shimmers are made of a careful selection of special ultra refined glass pearls which are known for their transparency and high luminosity.

Texture

I am a fan of shiny lipstick as usually it leaves my lip well hydrated. Shu Uemura Lacque Supreme Shimmers contains oil-in-water emulsion base formula to bring a fresh and smooth sensation upon application.

Packaging

What I love most about the packaging is that the color is see through. In my big lipstick collection, sometimes it can be frustrating looking for a certain color when I have to open it one by one to find the color I am looking for.But it’s not the case with Shu Uemura Laque Supreme, I can see through the color from the packaging.

My impression:

It glides on very smoothly and it feels lightweight on my lip. It’s very hydrating and it does help to repair my lip. The color was not the most pigmented but it’s buildable. With two coats, the color looks lively on my lips. As for lasting power, it serves up to a decent hours, perhaps 2-3 hours if I’m not drinking too much water.

 

Availability:

Shu Uemura Laque Supreme Shimmer is available islandwide and retailing at $42 each.
