Shu Uemura Sheer Shine Lipsticks

Last month, I was chosen to be one of the 20 beauty bloggers to try out Shu Uemura Sheer Shine lipsticks! I was thrilled to receive 3 of the Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Sheer Shine lipsticks at my door step. I’m sure you all have seen these 3 gorgeous lipsticks on my Instagram. I absolutely love these lipsticks!

So, the 3 shades that I received are RD 164 (red), PK 366 (pink), CR 350 (peach). I can’t really pick a favorite because I love them all equally! They are very vibrant, and you can layer it. If you are not used to wearing bright colored lipsticks, you should definitely give this a try. This way, you can apply it sheer at first then build it to a more opaque finish once you get used to the color, especially if you want to try the red lipstick.

The best part, for me, is the fact that these Sheer Shine lipsticks are very moisturizing, and it has a “glass-like” finish, similar to a gloss but without the stickiness. Actually the shine on these lipsticks are amazing! It’s definitely better than a gloss! If you apply the Sheer Shine lipsticks with a lip brush (I recommend the Shu Uemura lip brush), you can actually create a stain on your lips.

These lipsticks are very pigmented, don’t let the name “Sheer” fools you! So vibrant, high shine and very colorful! On top of that, this product is just like butter. Very smooth and you can apply this very easily to the lips.

50s Inspired Makeup

This 50s inspired makeup is a modern take of the old Hollywood glam. It’s still pretty glamorous due to the falsies and eyeshadows, which make it suitable for wedding guests, and even brides! You can draw a thicker winged eyeliner if you have bigger eyes, but I kept mine pretty thin.

I wanted the focus to still be on the lips, since I think this Shu Uemura Diva Red lipstick is the perfect red lipstick for summer. It has an orange undertone, and it will look great especially on East Asian skintones.

I’ve done a more neutral eyes if you prefer non-winged liner look. Please take a look at my Kat Von D Shade + Light eye contour tutorial for a more neutral non-liner eyes.
