Here's a review on Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte Lipstick in M PK 376
PLACE BOUGHT: Free
OTHER LOCATIONS: Available in Rustan's malls and the following Shu Uemura stores: Powerplant Mall, Alabang Town Center, Trinoma Mall
So here's the lipstick shade I got from my Shu Uemura Powerplant visit. I went for this gorgeous Hot Pink shade because it's definitely too beautiful to pass up on. The red one was super nice, but a great hot pink shade is a rarity.
The new Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte line only has 6 shades. There's Red, Nude Pink, Brown, Beige, Orange, and this.

Texture is very smooth, and consistency is silicone- like. I find that it starts dry, unlike traditional matte lipsticks that feel a bit wet upon application then dries up into a matte, dry finish eventually. That said, it is important to scrub those lip flakes away to prevent the lipstick from cracking and feathering on your lips. It is quite pigmented, and it only took me one swipe to achieve this gorgeous skin swatch. It smoothens your lip surface by filling in fine lines, and makes it appear plumper too.
M PK 376 is a true Hot Pink shade-- no undertones whatsoever. It's the kind of Hot Pink you'll see on the runways. It's the perfect shade for that 'Statement Lips' look.
M PK 376 on me
It does not feel heavy, and it glides on smoothly and effortlessly. Staying power is very good: It lasts for a good 3 hours or more on me, and only needs to be retouched once during wear. I like the fact that it's unscented too!
However, like all matte lipsticks, this one's a bit drying too. It's also quite hard to remove, so make sure you have a handy lip balm on hand when you're going to take it off to give the lipstick some slip.
I don't mind if it's a wee bit drying on the lips--I am so in love with the color! You will never go wrong with this shade because it compliments all skin tones. I particularly love the shade for its instant glamming effect: Just sport clean, dewy skin, swipe this on and you're good to go! If you're planning to grab anything from this lipstick line, please get this because it's probably the prettiest Hot Pink shade I've ever seen!
