Flaunt Your #mattitude With Shu Uemura x Yazbukey
When makeup meets fashion… amazing things happen!
As seen in Shu Uemura and Yazbukey’s latest collaboration below!
Evidently, the collection is a walking billboard of the extraordinarily creative minds of Uchiide, Shu Uemura’s International Artistic Director and the Queen of Plexi, Yazbukey.
Following their successful joint effort in creating one of the most iconic lines back in 2015, the artistic extraordinaires are back on again to create the lip-focused “Mattitude Collection”.
Since their first launch in 2010, Shu Uemura’s Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte has gained popularity among matte lipstick lovers for its beautiful matte finish, vibrant color pay-off and melting texture.
Just when you thought it can’t get any better, the collection introduces their first ever magic metallic lip liner, adding a je ne sais quoi to the lip contour. I had a lot of fun playing with the new products and experimenting with some new looks!
Keep scrolling for swatches of the new lippies!
I wore the Coral Dance shade and dabbed some Gold Wow on my lips in this series of photos. They lasted through a cup of milk tea and some Lao Po Bing (Wife Cake, a traditional Cantonese pastry). Absolutely love the flattering shade and its buttery yet matte texture. And of course, the metallic lip liner is a genius idea! Now I can instantly glam up a look with a quick swipe!
Here I am also wearing a lip necklace by Yazbukey, a Paris-based jewelry designer, well known for her iconic, bold and edgy lip motifs: “c’est ahh lips”.
Aptly dubbed the Queen of Plexi for her trailblazing use of plexiglass, she often designs accessories with playful pop references, creating a trompe l’oeil effect along the way for more interesting and wearable pieces.
Her vivid persona is perfectly in line with Shu Uemura’s Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte! See how well my lip color and funky necklace go together!
Now let’s take a closer look at the mesmerizing shades!
The metallic lip liner is very thick and highly pigmented, allowing it to create precise strokes with every glide.
To make my point, I decided to create a more complex swatch with the lip products.
My husband, Bobby drew the Infinity Gauntlet on my hand, with the Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte colors as the infinity stones. Eek! I hope Thanos never finds me!
The gold hue is intense! I also love how it dries quickly, creating an alluring matte gold texture. Shu Uemura, you’ve defnitely outdone yourselves again! I wanna get all your shades!
Here’s an overview of all the colors.
Besides the gorgeous shades featured above, the collaboration also includes nine new trendy shades with a total of 16 shades accessorized with a special playful lip motif on the packaging designed by Yazbukey and three other Magic Metallic Lip hues. The 16 shades consist of nine NEW limited edition one-shot shades and seven best-selling existing rouge unlimited matte lipsticks in limited edition packaging. Check out this link for all the colors!
The products are priced at SGD38 each and are now available islandwide.
