(Lipstick/rouge Ã lÃ¨vres)
I canâ€™t believe that this is my first ever shu uemura. Gah. Thereâ€™s reason behind it, I tell you. I paid $27.00 just for this little thing! Itâ€™s part of their Rouge CrÃ¨me collection. I tried to find it online but, surprisingly, itâ€™s not in their website, not even in Japanâ€™s shu uemura website. Weird, innit? Good thing Iâ€™ve prepared this simple photo so you guys can see what it looks like.
You can choose from girly pinks to dark mauves. I opted to go for au naturale and chose a very nude-ish, brownish pink which they only called #270. I guess when you try to make tonnes of colour mixes, itâ€™s hard to name them all, eh?
I love the very handy tube. You can easily control the amounts you want to apply and the tip is shaped smoothly and at a slant (seemingly like how lipsticks look) to make application stress-free. Of course, the â€œCrÃ¨meâ€ itself is awesome. Itâ€™s creamy and non-sticky. It feels like youâ€™re also moisturising your lips while painting it. Hehe. I love the shimmery, glossy finish. Itâ€™s staying power isnâ€™t that long, though. Untouched, it can last for about 3 hours, I guess. But if you drink, smoke, eat after putting it on â€” well, letâ€™s just say, youâ€™ll be needing a retouch soon after. LOL. Removing it is quite easy. It doesnâ€™t make you feel like you have to peel off a layer of your lipsâ€™ skin so you can be sure youâ€™ve fully taken it off. Itâ€™s like a creamy gloss.
Verdict? Give it a go. Iâ€™m not too keen with the price (but Iâ€™ve always found makeup prices too expensive, heh). However, Iâ€™ve managed to spot two places online where you buy them, cheaper, too! On top of all the things Iâ€™ve already mentioned, itâ€™s travel-friendly (easy to pack) and easy to apply on-the-go, too.
If any of you guys do get around to buying one, let me know! Iâ€™d love to hear your own personal experience with the Shu Uemura Rouge CrÃ¨me.
