When it comes to lipstick, hands down matte lipstick wins. There has been a love and hate with matte lipstick but I just love them. Not for its long lasting but for the comfort. I love how matte lipstick feels like nothing on the lips. Matte lipstick comes in many form – liquid lipstick, which is in trend at the moment, powder lipstick, which many find odd but I love it, and comfortable matte lipstick that will suit even those who are not into matte lipstick. Comfortable matte lipstick is able to provide comfort and moisture minus the shine. And that is exactly what Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte Lipstick is all about.
Who doesn’t love pretty princessy packaging? I do. Pretty? Sold. Princessy? Sold! sold! Canmake had quite a busy year as they launched a few new products earlier this year. Among the few new products launched in May is this CANMAKE Just For Me Essence Rouge lipstick.
After all the oohhss and ahhhss on the pretty packaging, the first thing I was eager to find out is the shade I got. However, knowing Canmake, I knew Canmake shades would be on the girly girl side, which is literally right down my alley so I wasn’t worried that I was sent a nude shade 😛
That’s right. Don’t get fool with lipstick bearing the shade name “Nude” because you’ll never know what you’ll about to discover. I’m fond with Dior Addict Extreme lipstick. So when I won a Dior Addict lipstick from Malaysian Women’s Weekly readership survey, I was thrilled!
The lipstick are given by random. There is no way I can choose the shade I want. I remember crossing my fingers that I’ll get a nude color. That’s because I already own a fuchsia pink and red lipstick from Dior Addict Extreme range. Nude shade is the only one that I’m eyeing from Dior. And what do you know? My wish came true. I was given a Dior Addict #333 Nude.
After a quick search online I find that the difference between Dior Addict with Dior Addict Extreme is the colour intensity. I suppose Extreme are more intensive than the normal Dior Addict range?
Dior maintain the same lipstick case design for this although I think that it’s kinda bulky but classy. Unlike Dior Addict Extreme, the lipstick case for Dior Addict is clear and reflects some colorful reflection at certain angle. Nice one. Finger print on the casing are not visible at all too.
On sturdiness wise it’s really well-made. The clumsy me always drop things to the floor and this lipstick survived countless drops especially when I’m doing my makeup in the rush. I’m starting to feel sorry for my cosmetics lol. But I always remind myself not to drop my Burberry palette as per advice by Adrian. Must remember that all the time.
