PK 369, PK 325N

I recently tried two products from shu uemura’s Rouge Unlimited Pink Collection, which is a summer collection featuring nine Rouge Unlimited lipsticks and five Gloss Unlimited lipglosses–all pink themed, of course!

I tried PK 325N, which is a light pink gloss with blue-purple undertones. It applied fairly sheerly, but it still gave my lips a nice pink tint along with fuchsia sparkles that kind of cast a blue-violet shade. The shimmer is soft and fine, so it doesn’t feel like chunky glitter in the least.

I also tested out PK 369, which is a bright pink lipstick with blue undertones. This is an opaque lip color that packs quite a bit of pink punch. It’s definitely not for anyone afraid of rockin’ a bold lip! It feels creamy, and the finish is a glossy sheen that works well when worn alone.

Combining the two created a very glossy, fuchsia-ish pout. You could see a lot of the purplish shimmer from the gloss bring o the brightness in the lipstick. The two worked well together, though the combination is extremely bright!

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.
