I’ve had these lipsticks for ages and have only just got round to swatching them! A disgrace, I know.
As many of your know, I nearly keeled over with excitement when I saw the Tsumori Chisato Collection for Shu Uemura - it is cat themed! Now – what pieces from the collection you got will depend on if you are in the UK/EURO/US/ASIA.
In the UK, from what I saw, we got both lipsticks, the Planet palette, the brush set and highlighter.
Now the palette and highlighter I will probably be buried it – I am not dipping my grubby finger in it untill I have a special occasion! The lipsticks I did something very indulgent and bought 4 of (so I had 2 back ups to save and 2 I would actually use).
I am still barfing over Shu Uemura prices in the UK! I regularly bought Shu Uemura (my first true brand love), I own over 100 of their eyeshadows but either I’ve forgotten how much it costs or they have increased prices.
These lipsticks are £18 each. I guess thats standard now for high end make up but still….when you buy 4 it suddenly fees mega pricey!
Mmmmmm that packaging. How can you not love?
There are two shades to the range, Jupiter Brown and Venus Pink. Which is which –
It’s not really a brown.
I despise brown lipsticks! I will wear any colours – purple, green, black, other hideosities before I wear brown.
This is not a brown once its on. But it is very much a warm colour, like a warm warm coral with a brick base. On me anyway!:
Venus Pink (a bit lighter in real life):
This is your typical, super pretty, sparkly, glossy lipstick, pretty for most woman I would imagine:
This collection is still on sale and you can grab it on eBay if you don’t have a Shu near you.
These lipsticks are uber pretty – no doubt about that. But on a personal level, I have been looking for and wearing more creamy, richer lipsticks (perhaps its the time of the year for it) and this is quite sheer in comparison. It is very very similar to the old Lollishine lipsticks….
So whilst its mega cute, at the moment, its not one that I am carrying in my day to day make up bag.
I just spotted this on the Shu website:
This packaging is interchangeable and can be used with any of our rouge unlimiteds! Simply pop your favorite shade into this adorable tube and use over and over again.
Oooh! So you could buy one and use the packaging over and over again with any of the other shades! In that case, I think its a brilliant purchase! Muhahahahahaahaha
You can buy the lipsticks here.
