shu uemura’s Rouge Unlimited Pink Collection for Summer 2009

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.

LUSH Goes Vanilla for Summer 2009

LUSH Goes Vanilla

LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics introduces a new intoxicatingly attractive fragrance range with the smooth, velvety and delicious base of vanilla, blended with tonka bean and jasmine. Vanilla is a clever little aroma; it evokes comfort and a sense of calm for some while creating the feeling of confidence for others. Whatever its effect may be, there is no denying that you’re going to eat this fragrance line up… or at least wish you could.

Vanilla Fountain Bath Bomb ($5.95)
This was the first of the vanilla and cinder toffee scented products that inspired this whole new range. It became an almost instant best seller, with a mouth-watering scent of vanilla, tonka and jasmine. Jasmine can be calming to the nerves and warming to the emotions, helping produce feelings of confidence. It’s also a highly effective balm and tonic for dry and sensitive skin. Blended with the vanilla and tonka beans, the scent is reminiscent of burnt caramel and it’s topped off with a vanilla pod … absolutely delicious!

Vanilla Mountain Big Bath Bomb ($17.95)
Think Vanilla Fountain only much, much bigger. If Vanilla Fountain left you yearning for more then Vanilla Mountain is the one for you.

Heavenilly Massage Bar ($9.95)
Once you’ve tackled the Vanilla Mountain a heavenly massage will be in order. Heavenilly is a sweet and delicious massage bar, with tonka bean, jasmine and masses of vanilla absolute stirred into a natural, melty butter bar for a heavenly massage.

Vanilla Delite Body Lotion ($24.95)
A light, all over body cream with the same scrumptious vanilla, tonka and jasmine absolute mix. Highly nutritious fresh kiwi fruit is added for its nourishing and cleansing properties; its high Vitamin C content is especially good for rejuvenating tired skin because of its anti-oxidant action. Light yet deeply moisturizing oils such as Hawaiian tamanu and extra virgin coconut oil are used in this lotion to soften your skin and leave it smelling good enough to eat.

Vanilla Puff Dusting Powder ($10.95)
Keep your skin smooth, scented beautifully and feeling fresh all over with this delectable dusting powder. Shake the Vanilla Puff pot and cover yourself with jasmine, tonka and vanilla scented powder. Jasmine is a renowned aphrodisiac, so a dusting with this powder could add some va va voom to any date.

Vanillary Solid Perfume ($11.95)
A delicious, sweet fragrance to make you smell mmmm all over. A scent reminiscent of toffee, this gorgeous fragrance will have you wanting to lick your wrists … or those of the person you smell it on! It’s vanilla, with a strand of sensual jasmine woven into the sweeter notes. Keep in your bag for an instant uplift throughout the day.

Availability: May 2009.
