shu uemura for WKW: Glitter Fuse Lipstick

shu uemura Glitter Fuse Rouge Unlimited Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as an “innocent beige shade with a heavenly splash of golden dust full of hope.” It’s very slick and shimmery with a rosy beige base color (that’s barely visible) with soft golden shimmer and a shiny finish. MAC Gel is frostier and less beige. MAC Quietly Please is a little pinker.

On my lips, it adds warmth to my otherwise corpse-like lips (cool-toned, grayish mauve) along with plenty of golden shimmer. The shimmer is noticeable but feels smooth on the lips, even as it wears away. It seems like the sheerness of the lipstick does make it prone to wearing away quicker than the average lipstick–I managed two and half hours of wear. The Rouge Unlimited formula is marketed to wear for up to eight hours, though. I didn’t notice any scent or taste, though, and I really appreciated that it didn’t feel gritty after awhile.

C+
It's a great shade for everyday wear, but you'll need to keep it with you for frequent applications! If you like the effect but want it to last longer, you could layer it with a lip pencil or lipstick, though it may alter the appearance slightly.

  1. It looks very nice on you, but not really on it’s own :)

  2. Steph

    Really pretty MLBB lipstick.

  3. Kelly

    Very pretty. It’s like a lip highlighter.

  4. It looks really pretty on you!

  5. I was sceptical when I saw the first photo cos this looks like UD Indecent to me, which is the grittiest lipstick I have ever tried! Looks really nice though – very subtle but pretty. It really suits you!

  6. THAT is really pretty. I think it looks gorgeous on you. The longevity issue wouldn’t bother me at all – I’d rather have the glorious sheer color and shine. I think you just prompted me to buy it!

  7. Liz

    I usually hate frost-finish lipsticks, but this one’s subtle enough to look nice!

  8. Mary

    This is a beautiful daytime color on you :) It goes great with the eyeshadow you’re wearing!

    This reminds me of Cute-ster from a million years ago. BTW your skin looks beautiful. Are you wearing foundation? If so, what is it?

  10. I would not get away with this color. Much as I like Shu Uemura…havent bought their lipsticks in over 25 years…..The colors are more for the young skin.

    It’s so subtle but it really makes a difference! I love it. And you look so great in this photo! I really like whatever combo of products you used here :)

  12. That lipstick looks great on you dear!

  13. It’s not as glittery as I thought it would be. It looks like a healthy sheen for some reason.

  14. Yui

    No thanks, especially for $26.

  15. I was actually going to get this from my aunt who was in Hong Kong last week but the airport doesn’t have them yet. It’s so gorgeous!!

    oh no :)) at least it’s golden shimmer :P

  17. Stef

    I don’t think I could ever spend 26$ on a lipstick that could easily pass off for a lip balm! :/

  18. Lena

    That looks great on you! Your skin looks great as well, what are you wearing?

  19. Jessica Leigh

    How does this compare to Guerlain Rouge Automatic in Mitsouko? Is Mitsouko is more peach / orange?
