The Packaging For The Shu Uemura Spring 2021 Collection LE Lipsticks
To begin with, the outer boxes for the LE Lipsticks are as colorful as the lipsticks themselves. And, the colors scream Spring! First, the Rouge Unlimited Matte Lipstick comes packaged in a neon-citron-green box. In addition, the Lacquer Shine Lipstick comes in a neo pink box. Both boxes have black printing on them.
Next, I am in love with the lipstick tubes. First the tubes are covered in see-through acrylic. Even more, the iconic lines of the cakes created by Sadahara Aoki Paris, are glazed on the front of the lipstick tubes. Underneath the squared lines of the outer acrylic, are circular tubes. First, the Matte tube, like the outer box, is neon green. Also, the Lacquer tube, like the outer box, is neon pink!
Finally, when the lid comes off, both of the lipsticks are in a metallic burgundy tube. Furthermore, the tube twists up and down, moving the lipstick up or down. You can tell, I’m drooling over these lipstick tubes! In fact, they look like architectural pieces of art. They should be displayed on your vanity.
The Formula For The Shu Uemura Spring 2021 Collection LE Lipsticks : Rouge Unlimited Matte Lipstick
First, the Rouge Unlimited Matte Lipstick has the scent of Sadahara Aoki’s famous Parisian Bamboo Cake. In fact, this is the cake that was created into a lipstick format. Above all, the cake’s scent,, Matcha, was infused into the formula of the lipstick! As a result, the lipstick smells like the Bamboo Cake!
Now for the unique texture of the Matte formula. First, it is matte, but not matte. The reason is, when matte lipstick is involves, so are lips that dry out! However, this unique creamy texture gives your lips a moisturizing comfortable wear. It doesn’t, repeat does not, dry out your lips. Therefore, Lips feel hydrated, like a lip balm, but the lipstick isn’t a lip balm. It is unique. It is a super matte lipstick!
Finally, the lipstick glides on the lips. And, the lipstick has a velvety texture. Also, the matte lipstick is long-wearing, buildable and blendable. And, the formula includes superfine Japanese Pigments that provide high-impact coverage, and an intense color payoff with one stroke of the lipstick!
The Formula For The Shu Uemura Spring 2021 Collection LE Lipsticks : Rouge Unlimited Lacquer Shine Lipstick
Again, the scent of the Rouge Unlimited Lacquer Shine Lipstick has the scent of another of the Patisserie Chef’s signature cakes. Therefore, the Lacquer Shine Lipstick has a sweet, red bean aroma that is infused into the lipstick.
Furthermore, this is a glossy lipstick that melts on your lips. And, it is ultra-soft and comfortable to wear. Even more, the lipstick gives you seamless color payoff, and a translucent finish. And, the finish is a super-wet look.
