Something Beige and Coral for the Holidays

shu uemura Celebrity Beige Rouge Unlimited Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a warm-toned, light-medium orange with a soft beige tint. It has a glossy finish and subtle shimmer running through it. Burberry Devon Sunset is pinker. Bobbi Brown Guava is similar, slightly more muted. MAC Jazzed is lighter. MAC In a Heartbeat is noticeably lighter.

The Rouge Unlimited formula is supposed to have “rich moisture and long lasting comfort” with “high color payoff and fidelity.” It has such a slick consistency–like a lipstick-lipgloss hybrid–yet delivers nearly opaque color coverage. There’s a subtle translucency that keeps it from looking too thick or heavy. The creaminess enables it to apply to glide on effortlessly, and it is a very hydrating formula. It doesn’t last longer than three hours on my lips (an hour shy of my typical four-hour average), which wasn’t completely unexpected, given the slickness of the formula. It’s lightweight, though, and it is comfortable to wear.

Celebrity Beige glides on easily, feels comfortable to wear, and is very hydrating while it is worn. Not your expected shade for the holidays but not everyone wants to wear red and berry!

  1. Vanilla

    Love the colour, finish, packaging… everything but the price tag. $30 for lipstick is over my holiday budget :( Will keep it on the wishlist for now!

  2. It’s really beautiful. I really love the coral tones.

    $30.00? Not sure I’m willing to spend that much on a lipstick that I have to keep reapplying.

  3. Yellowlantern

    This reminds me a lot of MAC Cut a Caper so of course that means I like this too. :D

  4. The shade of course is amazing but what is more amazing is the tube. Love it! x

  5. Caroline

    I always thought of this as a summery colour, but then again, who says you can’t wear it in winter?

  6. Sara

    This really looks like mac shy girl !

    Maybe it’s just me, but I’m not seeing any “beige” in this…

  8. The color is SOOOO pretty! I’ve never tried ANY of Shu’s color line–they pulled out of the U.S by the time I was interested in anything :/ This looks fab though–might have to finally place that online order I’ve been talking about for months

  9. A little orangy for me.

    Beautiful! I love pink with a hit of orange. Babylip! Looks great on you :D BTW, I wonder if Chanel holds black friday sale every year???

  11. Fina

    Love it. Would have considered purchasing it if I saw these swatches beforehand. Every other swatch I had seen previously had a barely there appearance. Opted for the Mon Shu Red instead.

    Thanks for the photos.

    I’d rather get Devon Sunset, but is anyone actually surprised? :P

  13. Ginny

    Thanks for the swatch. Will you be reviewing Mon Shu Red from the same collection soon?

  14. Gorgeous color, it looks great on you, Christine! Is this similar in color to Revlon’s lip butter in Tutti Frutti?

  15. The consistency looks really nice…it’s too bad they won’t ship to Canada. I don’t get why all these U.S companies can’t take a few steps past the border for their products. They’re loosing business. Oh well, I can get my YSL, my Tom Ford, and my Guerlian from N.Marcus and Barneys who do ship above them!

    • niche

      If you live in Canada…you can get Shu Uemura, YSL, Tom Ford and Guerlain from Holt Renfrew (YSL and Guerlain at The Bay as well, YSL at Murale). I just bought half the Shu Uemura Karl Lagerfeld collection from Holt Renfrew. And if you call Holts, they will ship it for you if you don’t live near one. I generally receive excellent service there. I also find that the prices are the same or closer to US pricing now.

  16. I like it when the original container….looked plastic…but was like HE plastic….miss the creator of Shu Uemura…he kept it in the U.S.

  17. Love this color on you! Very flattering.

  18. Rachel

    Love the lipstick,HATE the damn dolly. It scares me with two red eyes,creepy!

  19. Jocelyn

    This is now my go-to lipstick, replacing Chanel rouge coco shine premice!

    Christine, what are you wearing on your cheeks? Very flattering.
