Pink-ing of the Shu Uemura Pink Collection

I’ve never worn Shu Uemura’s lipsticks and glosses for some reason. I used to own a large collection of eyeshadows and glow on blushes but never lip products. So when I saw the new Shu Uemura Pink Collection online I thought to check it out to see how pink it can get.

Answer: Very Pink!

While I was accompanying a friend at Shu Uemura I came across the collection – a very seriously pink collection of new Rouge Unlimited Lipsticks and Gloss Unlimited lipglosses. They are so pink I felt like this should have formed part of a Hello Kitty or Barbie collection. I hope that Shu Uemura never falls to that level though icon razz Pink ing of the Shu Uemura Pink Collection

Anyway, here are some swatches I took of the Shu Uemura Pink Collection.

Pink Collection Rouge Unlimited- RM68

A collection of 9 new pink shades in the Rouge Unlimited lipstick line. I’d never used the Rouge Collection lipsticks and these felt a little dry going on my hand. The colours are pinks, pinks and more pinks. I only saw 7 on display so I only swatched the 7 colours. One of them (PK369) looks remarkably like the the Body Shop Moroccan Rose lipstick I own.

None are my colours – I felt they were too pink and too pale except for one. However the Gloss Unlimited were pretty interesting.

I was taken in by the lipglosses for some strange reason – and we all know by now that I’m NOT a lipgloss girl. I think I was just fascinated by the applicator. Have you ever seen a stick straight applicator?

There are 5 new shades of Gloss Unlimited lip glosses but I only swatched 4. The one I did not swatch is a clear shimmer gloss PK310N. 2 of the glosses are as good as clear going on the skin. One is a light pink that for me would just wash me out, while I was quite interested in PK378S (bright fuschia pink) and PK315N (Peachy pink). If I were getting any, I’d get these… just for the applicator LOL…

But what I was REALLY fascinated by were the sales persons who were wearing bright fuschia pink on their eyes with black shadow. I really liked the look so some day I’m going to duplicate it. I already have the fuschia shade in hand – I just need the time to experiment icon biggrin Pink ing of the Shu Uemura Pink Collection

Are you one for pink lips? Have you tried the Pink Collection by Shu Uemura?

Stay beautiful,

Hiya prettybeautiful

I’m not sure but it sure is very pink! haha… I can’t take light pink too. If I do pink I usually go for darker shades.

I like PK315N too~ Though it looks more peach than pink

Hey Jessie

Yep! It certainly looks more peach – I’m worried it’d make me look washed out which is why I didn’t get it just then. Maybe I’ll take another look.

How sheer is this? I have really pigmented lips I’m worried the pink won’t even show up.

Thank you!

Hi oneofmylies99

I’d say the pinks are quite light – the swatches are pretty much as you see in the picture. The glosses seem more pigmented but I’m not sure they’d show up all that pink on pigmented lips.

OMG!!! I was looking for pink lipsticks with slight golden tone and sheen to it… I’m gonna visit Shu Uemura soon!!!

I was so devastated when ZA discontinued their PK402 lipstick. It was my first and last and only one :(

I hope I get to find one in Shu Uemura’s Pink collection!!! [cross fingers]

PK378 gloss looks gorgeous! But I already have too many pink lip products, so I’ll probably pass on this collection.

Hi Gio

It looks like everyone has lots of pink glosses except me! Time for me to check them out perhaps? ;)

Am afraid I can’t do all this pink, even though they look real purdy. Skintone’s too warm to wear pink :(

Hey Tine

You and me both! I’m not all that warm but pink washes me out something plenty

Hmmm I’m with you ParisB. I can’t wear pink glosses actually coz it’ll look too red on my lips and make me look bee stung. Hmmm… That’s why I kept my ZA Pink Lipstick for colour reference :P Most of the colours I have are like browns and browns and browns :P hahaha I just keep getting colours which are so similiar until I can’t differentiate which from which :P
