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.

Passionate eyeshadow is a matte, bright red-pink. It’s not a true red, and it’s not a hot pink–it’s somewhere in between. It’s not always the easiest color to wear, and I definitely don’t think necessarily *everyone* should have it, but it’s a nice pop of color for anyone who will actually wear it!
Da Bling eyeshadow is a smooth, blendable medium warm-toned pink with gold shimmer. A lot of pinks tend to be cool or neutral, so it’s great to have one with a warm undertone (especially for those who have warmer complexions).
Expensive Pink eyeshadow is a peachy-pink that really makes pink way more wearable than you think. If you’re a little wary of hot pinks, bright pinks, and baby pinks–consider Expensive Pink. It has only a little bit of pink; I’d almost describe it as a dirty pink.
Hush eyeshadow is a sheer, shimmery highlighter with just a hint of pink. Hush makes a great all-over lid color in neutral looks, but it is a great way to highlight the brow bone when you are also wearing pink or purple eyeshadows. The touch of pink helps tie everything together.
Swish eyeshadow is a deeper fuchsia pink, which runs darker and has more dimension than a really bright fuchsia. It runs more fuchsia-purple than straight pink, but it can always be brightened by layering with a bright pink base, too.
