Lip of the Day: Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Lipstick in BG 955

I bought this rather lovely lipstick whilst shopping in Shu Uemura for an eyebrow pencil for my sister-in-law-to-be to use for her wedding.  She also bought a Rouge Unlimited lipstick, and me being me, I couldn't resist getting one for myself.  I chose this rather glorious neutral-but-not-neutral mid pink, and it's become one of my favourites in the past few weeks.

The packaging is a standard twist up format, with a clear, rounded lid.  It looks rather classy, although I have found that tiny smears of lipstick get on the inside of the lid, which looks a little messy.  

On the lip, it's a beautiful mid pink which makes for a neutral but not beige look.  The lipstick has a high level of pigmentation, and also a glorious sheen which hints at the level of moisture it provides.  It wears really well, too - I get a good four hours before it starts feeling a little dry and needing a top up.

And finally, here's how it looks within the context of my whole face.  I really don't like beige nude lips - they make me look washed out - and this pink is a lovely alternative.

At £19, this is an indulgent purchase (particularly for someone with around a hundred lipsticks in their collection already...) but the quality of the product makes it worth every penny.  Lovely.
