Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Shine Lipstick Swatches

September 21, 2011

I can never get bored of lipsticks – no matter how many I own! My latest acquisition is the Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Shine. I have heard some youtube gurus  raving about them so I took the plunge. It was instant gratification from the first swipe on my lips – it’s just amazing. I just knew that both the formulation and the finish were made for my needs. All the shades from this range are beautiful yet wearable so I couldn’t help but pick up 4 of them.

Shu-Umeura-Rouge-Umlimited-Supreme-Shine-swatchesSome people don’t like the Shu Uemura packaging, but I absolutely adore them. They are cute and elegant at the same time, and has a futuristic edge to it. Best of all I can see the lipstick shade without opening the cap!


They feel extremely hydrating on the lips and have a soft balmy texture, as soft as the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine. In terms of finish, they are semi-opaque with a glass-like shine. They all contain very fine particles of shimmer that gives a wet look without the frost.

Here are the swatch pictures (taken on a dull day!) – did my best to capture the true colors however I failed to capture the beautiful glossy sheen of these lipsticks as can be seen in real life…

Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Shine SS OR 520: A soft peach shade that is not too nude. Perfect for spring and summer and brightens up my NC15 complexion




Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Shine SS BG 943: Best seller! A beige with a hint of brick brown undertone – it gives a very polished look which is very office appropriate.




Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Shine SS PK 340 – A soft girly pink that gives a romantic and youthful look



Shu-Umeura-Rouge-Umlimited-Supreme-Shine-ss-pk-340-swatch-2Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Shine SS BG 957: It’s a darker beige compared to BG 943 with a reddish undertone. My favorite shade out of all – I think it’s a sophisticated grown-up shade.

I love these! I’ve got a darker OR somewhere – it’s the perfect summer colour!

I know they are awesome but underrated – not that many people have talked about it.

Thanks Georgina! This entire range offers very wearable colors, I could have easily bought all of them if I had the budget haha

you look beautiful! i like OR 520 and PK 340 most on you. it makes you look so fresh! the other colours look very fall-appropriate, though.

My fav would also probably be BG 943. I haven’t tried any lipsticks from Shu and I might do now. Thanks for the swatches!

Reika September 22, 2011 at 3:24 pm

Thank you so much lyn, you are incredibly sweet!!

I picked up PK340 and I love it. BG943 looks beautiful, I think that will be my next purhcase from the line.


Dovey September 22, 2011 at 4:40 am

I love the glossy finish. 943 and 520 Are both so pretty 🙂

So happy you are highlighting this awesome product. I am such a fan of this lipstick. I own the BG 935. The sheen and lasting power is way superior to the Coco Rouge Shine. I think it is the particularly shimmery color that I have but it feels slightly gritty on the lips. Aside from that, it is amazing. I am hooked on this and will be trying some other colors as well.


Reika September 22, 2011 at 3:29 pm

Thanks for letting me know, I will check out 935 once I get a chance. Yes they definitely deserve more attention as they are just as good as chanel coco rouge shine and dior addict!

Wow! Your makeup is so flawless today! You look like a classic beauty from a fairytale!

I really like their packaging too and I agree it looks kinda futuristic.

All the shades you got are gorg, especially OR and BG. You look beautiful with a vintage look in the last pic =)

I have never tried any Shu Uemura lipsticks, but now after reading your entry, I’m very tempted to give it a try! You enabler! 😉

All colors look so pretty on you! <3
