I have no shame in admitting that I am a lipstick hoarder. I rarely ever leave home without some color on my lips, so I can totally justify my obsession.
Given that I already own so many lipsticks, you’d think it’d be hard to find new favorites, but not so. I just had the opportunity to sample the new Shu Uemura x Yazbukey rouge supreme matte lipstick and it’s already been on heavy rotation on my lips this summer.
Not only did uchiide, shu uemura’s international artistic director, team up with artist and designer Yazbukey on this lipstick’s packaging, but they also worked together on the shade range, which has a perfect option for every skin tone. My personal fave is Yaz Red, which is a not-too-orangey red that looks great on sunkissed skin.
The really special feat with this lipstick, though, is that unlike so many other matte lipsticks it’s not drying at all. Honestly, I can wear it for hours and not feel like I have to apply any lip balm over it. I also love that a little goes a long way. I only ever use two swipes and that’s just enough color to last me until lunch.
If you’ve been on the fence about matte lipstick, this is the one to start with. It will set the bar very, very high for all others to compete with and you won’t be disappointed.
