Blog Label: red
Brand : Shu Uemura
Name : Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte Lipstick RD144 &RD156
Price : IDR 390k (around USD 39)
Price based on stores in Indonesia. 

     Anyway, even though it has like 26 shades, I will only review 2 of them, because that's what I have. Before that, I'd like to tell you guys a little why Shu Uemura has 26 shades of red to choose. Simply because Red is the color of strength, emotional, prosperity and joy. A color that woven into Japanese history, rituals and celebration. As a Japanese brand, surely red is an important color for Shu Uemura.

     For Shu Uemura, red color is in the brand's DNA because Mr. Shu Uemura (the founder) was like obsessed with red! He aimed to researching the precise shades that would suit every face and every skin tone. Which leading up to 2019 where they finally reveal the perfect, iconic red lipstick for all of modern asian women: RD163.

      And to complete RD163, they have other 25 shades to choose. But the highlight is RD163, which claimed to be perfect for any asian skin tone. I tried my self and the color is supeeeeeerrrr pretty!! Perfectly fit for me! Ah I wish I could have it soon on my red lipstick collection! Because it surely damn pretty!

     But right now I will not be reviewing the RD163 as I don't have it yet, but I'm going to review the other 2 red shades from the 26 shades; RD144 and RD156, which are also pretty, even though not as perfect as the RD163 on me. But still match my skin tone, which is more into neutral-warm.

      Let's see the packaging first:

     Well, the packaging is the usual Shu Uemura packaging with white simple box. Inside, the packaging is somekind of light silver plastic tube with transparent cap. Simple but still pleasing the eyes.

      Here goes the arm swatch:

     I'll update the lip swatch later ya.

     Both are red with different color tone. For me, RD144 more like orange toned red, while RD156 kinda toned like berry red. Both are super vibrant and pigmented. I love how the texture feels so smooth, buttery and creamy. Glide easily on the lips and doesn't feels dry at all.

     In fact this is one of the creamiest matte lipstick i've tried. But since it's not a waterproof matte liquid lips kinda like, so it's still stain. It stains of glass, spoon, etc, but not too much. It will wash out after a big meal or a big make out, but not a problem since you can always re-apply. It doesn't dry the lips and can be easily re-apply without 'thick' feelings.


     I wouldn't say i really love it, because my heart still fall for RD163 obviously. But I do like the creamy formula for this matte lipstick. Because lately my lips is feeling dry, I kind of getting rarely using matte lipstick that feels harsh on my lips (even just a little bit dry bugs me). So i think Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited kinda helps when i want to use a good matte lipstick but keep my lips soft.

     The colors are nice, but not the perfect red for me. I still like them though. Especially the RD144, gives me a really bright overall looking without feeling too much. The thing is, because it has so many red shades, you can choose whichever is the perfect one for you, so don't worry!

+ creamy
+ doesn't dry the lips
+ pretty red shades
+ easy to apply
+ doesn't feels thick on the lips

- kinda pricey
- it does still stain, not kissproof/waterproof (even tho it's not really a biggie for me)

Overall Rating: 4/5

     Well, in the end i still like it so much! And glad both of it can be part of my red lipstick collection! Hehe, because girls can't just have one red lipstick! But on my wish list is the RD163, like totally. Plus i also curious with the rest of the shades, other than the 26 red shades. Because, yes, in total it has 122 new shades! So many shades, so little lips right, lol.

     Anyway, if you're into high end lipstick, this one is a must try. You can simply check it out on the nearest Shu Uemura counter, or Sephora, or you can go buy it at SOCIOLLA. You can use my code SBNLALUK for IDR 50k discount (min shopping IDR 250k). For more info go check out Shu's IG account:

     That's all for now, see you guys on my next review!
