Cut a long story short:
Pros: Gorgeous texture, gorgeous colour, just gorgeous to wear
Cons: Not longwearing, expensive and the packaging!
I don’t usually have a problem with the plastic casing of Shu Uemura Lipsticks – its quite retro and I don’t feel like I need opulence in every lipstick.
However – these Supreme Shine Lipsticks have a design issue I just can’t ignore…the lid cracks easily. I have plenty of the other Shu Uemura lipsticks and I don’t get any cracks on them because they are a thicker plastic.
However, the supreme shine lids are thinner they seem. All three of my lids have fractures in the lids – I have been gentle with each one and I have only had them for a fairly short amount of time, yet each lippie has one of these lines:
On my pink lipstick, I can see the crack is so deep, its might start to split and then I really won’t be amused. For nearly £20, I do expect decent casing.
I don’t know if this is just bad luck or a real fault with the lipstick.
Each one of my lipsticks came from different stores and sources and because its happened to all my lipsticks, it makes me wonder if its a bigger problem. Either way its extremely disappointing for a lipstick that costs so much to buy.
Would a product malfunction put you off buying a piece of make up?
