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.


New lustrous shimmer gold and silver crystal pearls

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.


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.


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.

I was given three shades to try on, they are:

OR 02 S (golden orange)

PK 05 S (Pink Carats)

CR 03 S (Crystal Coral)

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.



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

Shu Uemura x Maison Kitsune for Holiday 2015


You know we are nearing to the end of the year when beauty brands have started releasing the holiday collections. One of the brands that always catches my attention is Shu Uemura; every holiday seasons, Shu Uemura never fails to surprise me with the exciting collaboration. This year they have made another exciting collaboration with French designer Maison Kitsune.

The collection gives me a fresh spring vibes rather than Christmas’ party vibes. It’s interesting to see a brand releasing something rather unusual compared to other brands in the market. In this collection I am looking at lovely combination between pastel shades and deeper shades, and nothing too bold for me to wear.

In this blogpost, I have the Beauty Remix Smokey Eye & Cheek Palette in Plum.

A fun palette to play around and create an unusual smokey eyes. The palette has a mixture of plummy shade and orange-y shades. The colors are fun to create a young energetic look! In general, the shades has good texture especially the pearl texture. I found some fallouts especially on the glittery shades though, so I try to be more careful when applying the glittery shades.

The blush is a major surprise for me! It looks rather scary in the pan (screams: ORANGE!) but surprisingly it looks very wearable on my cheek. It looks peachy on my cheek and can also be worn as a contour cum blush to me.




Now onto the Drawing Pencil, here I have the plum and indigo. I love the color payoff of these two and how these are able to last on my lash line for a good 6 hours without smudging! The special Maison Kitsune design on the pencil is adorable too, I love the golden stamps details there.

The Laque Sparkler is one of the winner in this collection! I love how beautiful the color is and how opaque the color is on my lip. It takes me about two layers to get full opacity on my lip. Here I have the shade Plum Shimmer – a deep pink that leans towards red. It’s non drying on my lips and I like that I don’t need to retouch the color even after plenty glasses of water. It stains on my lip for a while, so at the end of the day I would clean my lip with lip make up remover.




a Shu Uemura collection wouldn’t be complete without the cleansing oil. In Maison Kitsune x Shu Uemura collection, the clensing oil released is from the Ultime8 Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil. By far this is my favorite cleansing oil! I’ve been using this range for a few years and Ultime8 range still secures a top spot in my heart. The oil is rich and it’s ultra moisturising, my skin feels well hydrated after my cleansing regime with Ultime8 range.

The collections is now widely available in all Shu Uemura boutiques and counter in Singapore

Dior Fluid Stick in 575 Wonderland and 669 Rose Tricheuse


It’s a lippie day! Dior launched Fluid Stick few weeks ago in ION Orchard and all the hype has been going around. I went to check out the colors and fell in love immediately with the texture and the finish on my lips.

Dior fluid stick is a hybrid lip product – the opacity and the pigmentation of this product resembles lipstick and the it has the glossy finish of a gloss.

Dior Addict Fluid Stick enables a flawless application in a single sweep: the high-impact colour and long wear of a classic lipstick, combined with the shine of a gloss, all in a thin film that delivers sensational comfort. Colour and shine come together as one for maximum impact with intense, long-wearing lip stain pigments directly encapsulated in spheres of gloss. Dior Addict Fluid Stick does not contain wax, but water for maximum lightness, an immediate fresh effect and addictive comfort 






Dior Fluid Stick is packaged in a beautiful and luxurious glass packaging which has a similar cap to Dior Addict Gloss. There’s a transparent part of the packaging which allows you to see the color of each gloss.

Dior Fluid Stick can give sheer finish and also a full opacity finish. if I wish to have sheer finish, I will apply one layer and spread it all over my lip. In this way, the gloss is visible but the color is less opaque. I personally prefer to use Fluid Stick with full opacity to reveal the true color of the product. The product contains high gloss finish. This product is also very friendly to dry lips. It does not emphasize my dry lips nor it does not shows any flakiness of my lips while it’s dry.

The brush of Fluid stick comes with a sponge applicator. It is rather big for a lipgloss / liquid lipstick product, but it does help the application to be smooth. It has a pointed tip at the end of the brush to help a more precise application.

IMG_9517.jpg I picked shade 575 Wonderland and 669 Rose Tricheuse. I am surprised that I am picking up these two shades as they look very bright. If you have been reading my post for a while, I have always preferred to use soft pink or nude lipstick over red and bright orange. I had been looking around for the right bright coloured lips shade for me and I know I have found it! Dior Fluid Stick has made me feel confident wearing bold shades like these.


Here’s the swatch of 575 Wonderland on my lips. Wonderland is a bright red pink.




and here’s 669 Rose Tricheuse – I find this shade leans more towards orangey red but it is more wearable than Wonderland.



This is certainly a great lipstick range from Dior especially for the bright shades. I have not tried any shade from the nude-ish range but so far the bright shades didn’t disappoints me. The gloss and the finish brighten ups my complexion. These shades lasts on me for about 2-3 hours before it begins to fade. I find that these stains a bit on my lip – so I’ll make sure that I clean it with lip remover on the end of every day.


Thank you for reading
