AMW Reviews: Shu Uemura Gloss Unlimited in Blooming Pink

Good morning and Happy Friday!!!
I'm excited for a busy weekend ahead so can I save a bit of my energy if you don't mind?
*Jumps and runs around*
Yeah right!  As if I could tone down my energy level!  N-E-V-E-R!!!  Well, not unless I'm sick *knocks on wood* and I hope it won't happen anytime soon! :)

Today, I am sharing to you a review of a lip product I've been using for quite some time!  This is my first Shu Uemura Lip Gloss as I'm surprised I didn't think of the brand when it comes to glosses!  Now it's time!  Is it?

Shu Uemura Gloss Unlimited

  • Blooming Pink - An innocent pink hue that blooms with positive energy.

AMW says ---
  • Simple, classy packaging.
  • Firm, flat, sponge-tip applicator makes it easy to apply on lips.
  • Non-sticky.
  • No weird scent.
  • On to the shade Blooming Pink: is a nice, dainty cool-toned pink that's unique in every angle.
  • The gloss stays and even withstand a bit of drinking!  Re-application is still needed (like any lip glosses)
  • Color is quite sheer for pigmented lips like mine. (Please read tip below on how to deal with this.)
  • Price

The shade Blooming Pink gives out a hint of cool-toned baby pink shade that's pigmented a bit to be seen on lips but not pigmented enough to even out the uneven pigmentation of lips.  This is a wonderful gloss to top on ANY lip color underneath.

  • If you have uneven, pigmented lips like me, I strongly suggest to fill in your lips with a lipliner closest to your lip color prior to the gloss application.
  • Prep your lips with good amount of moisture, though this is a gloss, it may still feel a bit drying for very dry lips consumers!
  • Try on different lipstick shades underneath, be experimental!  Check which combination flatters you the most!
  • For a dainty look, moisturize your lips with your choice of lip balm then top with the Shu Uemura Gloss Unlimited for a very natural yet sexy lips.
  • Blooming Pink shade is perfect for dark eye makeups!  
  • Wipe the applicator with clean cloth or tissue after every use.
  • Never share the same applicator with other people!  If possible, use a lip brush or lip gloss applicator.
  • If you prefer not to use lip liner or lipstick underneath but wants to see the real color of the gloss to pop out, cover your original lip color with a lip erase product or concealer.
Will I repurchase?
Other shades, yes!  For my make up kit!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who loves and can't live without glosses!  This is perfect for not so pigmented lips who would like a nice shine with a hint of "girly" freshness!

Where to purchase and how much?
At local Shu Uemura boutique for Php1,000 (approx $23.25).  About $22.00 in the US.

On Tube:
Blooming Pink looks a bit like an orangy-pink shade

On Lips
Changes the color of my lips into a nice baby pink 
but doesn't even out the pigmentation of my lips.
Lines are less obvious.

Have you tried any Shu Uemura Lip Gloss Lately?
What's the shade and does it flatter you?

Stay happy!
