Shu Uemura Gloss Lacquer Review

Count the Muse confused. When she originally discovered Shu’s Gloss Lacquer she could have sworn it was a limited edition product but low and behold it’s still quite up and available at Shu’s website as well as Sephora so I guess I somehow went wrong somewhere!

The good news is that this stuff is like crack for my lips and I adore it. The bad news is it’s bloody expensive at $26usd per a pot thus making me feel like I’m on crack when buying a pot of this stuff! Who in their right frame of mind purchases $26 lipgloss? Don’t answer that.

Three colors are available of this fabulous gloss two of which your Muse owns and keeps in her beauty vault the third would be a color called Invincible Pink.

Gloss Lacquer is exactly what you’d expect after seeing/reading the name. It’s so glossy your lips have the lacquered effect. Surprisingly this stuff is a snap to apply. Normally any lip product in a pot always causes me heart failure, drama, and general stress during application but this warms on contact with my fingertip and smooths on easily.

My lips thank Mister Shu Uemura after using this brilliant stuff! I especially love that I don’t have to stain my lips or use a lipstick beneath. The actual gloss isn’t all that pigmented but for some reason or another upon application my lips just pop with really nice color! Slick, glossy, and perfect this is well worth the $26 bucks!

Now..if they’d only make some more colors I’d be quite happy hmmm……

Shop Shu

56656

For the longest time, in order to get my Shu dosage, I ordered from the Shu Uemura website but now I can shop Shu from Sephora!

Sephora used to carry a limited range of Shu cosmetics but it now offers quite a few more items! It doesn’t yet carry the entire line but it’s slowly adding more and more items.

This makes the Muse happy! Especially when it’s time for the Friends and Family discount at Sephora! Shu discounted! Yes, indeed the Muse is content!

Shu Uemura Rougue Unlimited Reds Collection

untitled111

The perfect shade of red is very in this season and I’m positive you can find it from the new Rougue Unlimited Reds Collection!

If I had to pick a lipstick that I could never be without it’d have to be Rougue Unlimited. The Muse highly recommends checking out these sexy shades of red!

Shu Uemura Edo Komon Fall 2007 Collection

The Edo Komon collection is now available on Shu Uemura’s website.

Another ho-hum collection that I probably won’t bother any time with! I adore Shu but I can’t get excited about navy blue eyeshadow. Sorry Shu the wallet is remaining in the pocket this time around!

Is it me or do none of these colors work together? And by the very way the model on the left hand side is wearing a lovely cranberry color…where is that being offered? Did I miss something? And where’s the makeup video?

Is everyone out to disappoint me this Fall Season or am I total grouch?

Sigh.

Shu Uemura Summer Prisim Collection Part 2

A few people had asked me to post pictures of the Shu Uemura Summer Prisim Collection. I had discussed this in a prior blog a few weeks ago and just forgot to mention that I did indeed get the palettes!

I had wanted to do a sequel to the original blog but just got caught up blogging about other nonsense!

The two palettes are fantastic, I really didn’t expect any less from Shu! I really love the fact that I can buy two completely different palettes and 1. Not worry about them having the same color and 2. Having the ability to use both palettes on your eyes at the same time (All 6 colors just work together)! The colors are very wearable.

So many people on the internet, friends, family, etc…always tell me how scared they are of bright colors or how they wouldn’t dare wear green or blue etc…

If you read this you know I am a dark brown bruentte with dark brown eyes and I wear every color in the rainbow! No color is taboo for me! I wear black, brown, bright red, green, pinks, purples, orange even! Anything that takes my fancy I wear! So please pleaseeeeeeeee please I beg of you don’t be afraid of color! Anything works on anyone! I promise you this! If you’re a red head some rules apply but if you have black hair, brown hair, or blonde you are pretty much in like flint! Anything will work for you!

I’m saying this because the colors of the Prisim collection are a bit bold. Not my boldest by far but most people would take one look and think two or three times if this was a palette they’d make use of! The answer is yes! These are WONDERFUL summer colors and a great addition to your collection!

These cost me about 3700yen which is roughly $29 US dollars or so each, great deal for Shu shadows considering one shadow costs $21 and this palette gives you three!

These are, as always, highly pigmented, long wearing, and highly blendable! Smooth and easy application really!

And at the risk of sounding like a broken record, do buy both! The colors are made to interchange with each other and you aren’t left feeling like you have two palettes that won’t work with each other or the colors are similiar! The colors are all VERY different and ALL very interchangable!

And now that you’ve listened to my babbling I shall reward you with pics:
