shu uemura’s Rouge Unlimited Pink Collection for Summer 2009
Rouge Unlimited’s Pink Collection, a series of lipsticks and glosses made with a Pink Hybrid Pigment, one of the purest pink pigments ever discovered and patented by the cult Japanese beauty company. Thanks to this breakthrough, this lip collection boasts the most vibrant hues available, creating new and unique shades of pink never seen before.
The Pink Hybrid Pigment, which was discovered by shu uemura laboratories, is made up of a fusion between a mineral core and an organic shell, which produces particles that are perfectly round and regular in shape. This consistency is what makes the hues of the lipstick so bright and pure. This is what creates the new and unique hues of pink seen in the collection with shades that range from never before seen light, yellowish, dark and bluish pinks.

On top of INSTINCT and the Viktor & Rolf eyelashes, shu uemura is putting out Face Architect Remodeling Cream Foundation and Brightening Cleansing Oil this Fall.
face architect remodeling cream foundation w/SPF 10 ($39.00)
As part of the growing FACE ARCHITECT franchise, shu uemura introduces the latest in foundation â€“ face architect remodeling cream foundation ($45), a new creamy formula that is ideal for adding subtle highlights and accents to the face. Face Architect, Mr. Uemura’s philosophy towards face makeup, used the face as a canvas to apply makeup that will enhance natural beauty. From studying the bone structure and variations of skin thickness, to observing the individual differences in women, this detailed observation is known as “structuralizing” the face. By observing, it will become clear which parts of the face need more or less foundation to sculpt and refine natural beauty.
Remodeling Effect: Flex-fit formula allows foundation to sit naturally as a second layer of skin, which allows for buildable coverage. Cover-fit particles provide for precise and transparent coverage.
Ultimate Comfort: The skincare-like formula contains nearly 20% depsea water and volatile oil, which allows foundation to spread comfortably on skin.
Anti-Aging Treatment: UVA/UVB SPF protection and Jasmine extract is added for an anti-oxidant benefit.
Semi-Matte Finish: Semi-matte texture with natural sheen creates a sophisticated, chic look.
Jason Hoffman, shu uemura Principal Makeup Artist says, “Apply the face architect remodeling cream foundation with the NEW shu uemura Foundation Brush in Natural 18. This exclusive brush created with only the best selected soft goat hair was created to apply foundation smoothly and evenly with a higher coverage effect. Ultra-fine, un-cut hair tips allow smoother application in comparison to synthetic brushes, and higher coverage compared to sponge applicators. Natural 18 also allows freedom in sculpting foundation dimensionally, so you can achieve a professional level makeup finish.”

I really want the Rhombus ones! I can’t really tell you why, but I’m so drawn to them. Will I pick up a pair? Very, very doubtful! At $95 a pop, these are a bit steep for me. But what about you?
Wing A messenger of hope
“These lashes were created with the concept of the eye becoming a dove, the delicate minature wings give the eyes an expression of bewilderment, enchantment. The mind wanders and airborne, a messenger of hope.” — Viktor & Rolf
