Lips of the Day: Shu Uemura Supreme Shine in Red RD 165 Review

I am now the owner of three Shu Uemura Supreme Shine lipsticks – these don’t generally last too well but by god, they are absolutely – gorgeous – instant – sex – bomb.

Newest addition is RD 165 which they call a ‘Universal Red’. Glossy, sheer reds are my bag. I am too chicken to wear bright, matte, opaque red lipstick out day to day – there I said it.

I’m not Coco Chanel, I don’t work at Vogue, I’m not temping at McDonalds (any more), I’m not working the street corners….any time soon so…red lipstick is out for general work days.*

*Feel free to rock red every day by the way. I’m not judging I’m just telling you other people are.

I digress. Here it is:

All the supreme shines I have are a bit wobbly – grrr. I think its because they are so soft, delicate little things.

I’ve said a lot already about the texture and finish of the Supreme Shines – its utterly utterly stunning, really truly. But it just doesn’t last…in the lighter colours. A-ha!

In this gorgeous red, which I think would work on a lot of people, it does leave a slight red stain and some sparkly bits.

You could easily put some balm on top of the stain and it would still look nice. Hurrah!

See a close up…an awfully sexually provactive image of my lips:

The stain left (my lips are quite dry at the moment):

I don’t know why I do so many lip pictures, I don’t even like my lips and they are dry dry dry. Still…they are the gateway to the stomach, what else matters?

Love this lipstick! I would dare to wear this just cos its a very playful, very juicy red.

Ooh yes, they are selling Shu Uemura on The Beauty Expert these days so it should help those of you who don’t like near a Shu counter get your hands on their products.

See the Supreme Shines here (£19.50 each).

The next one I want is White! (its sheer, very glittery!).
