Review & Swatch : Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato : Lip & Cheek Color - I'm totally sold!

I was introduced Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato : Lip & Cheek Color a while ago and I was not allowed to blog about this until it is available at the store. And yes finally this has hit all Shu Uemura's counter and I can't wait to tell you more!

As most of you know Gelato in Italian means ice-cream. And this refers to the creamy fresh texture and delicious colors of ice-cream! Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato : Lip & Cheek Color comes in different textures from cream base and range from glittery to glossy and to matte finishing.

According to Mr. Shu Uemura's philosophy "Colors are like personalities, they are infinite . I want women to enjoy make-up more freely". Hence this Tint in Gelato Lip & Color can be mix and match to reflect a infinite color variations and multitude of different effects that can be achieved. 

Swatch of Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato Lip & Cheek Color 

Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato Lip & Cheek Color comes in 12 beautiful colours designed to flatter every skin tone. All these would be permanent collection, except for 2 limited edition colour which is AT 04 (Lemon Souffle) and BG 01 (Puffy Chocolate)

All this swatch is done with only just 1 swipe, as you can the colour are really pigmented and this is due to their innovation Controllable Coverage and it has a special ingredient called Elastomeric Gel which gives a very soft and silky, sensorial texture for easy spreading and blending.

With thin application, it results in semi-matte look with a natural sheen finish or use layering for a good color pay off.

Ingredients list on Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato Lip & Cheek Color

Finally I picked Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato in AT 01 and AT 02 for review. Red is my favourite lip colour hence I picked AT 01 Cassis Red and I picked up AT 02 Sugar Plum because this dark fuchsia colour is one of the sharpest colour among all. 

The packaging comes in metallic tube, a simple yet practical packaging as it does not take much space in our handbags.

How to use Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato Lip & Cheek Color? It's pretty simple. 

For lips : Glide on Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato on your lips with the given applicator and use lip brush to draw a defined lip if you want. 

For cheeks : Put a dot of Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato on your cheek and starts blending outwards with your fingertips  for a semi-matte with natural sheen finishing. Remember to use this AFTER your liquid foundation or BEFORE your compact foundation.

Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato in AT 01 in Cassis Red

Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato in AT 01 in Cassis Red comes in classic red colour. It is the most pigmented colour among all the 12 colours and this has the best lasting power of all. 
Texture : Creamy mousse texture but not sticky at all
Pigmentation : Very High ( Just 1 swipe is good enough)
Scent : None
The Shu Uemura's applicator comes in oval shape, it's really soft like suede and pick up the product well. Go light hand with this, because a little goes a long way! There are 2 finishing that can be created using this Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato depending whether you apply a thin or thick coat on your lips. Let me show you how it looks

I applied a very thin coat of Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato on my lips and blend using my finger (or you can use a lip brush) for a soft-matte finish.

For a more dewy satin finishing, apply one thick coat of Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato. The colour is absolutely stunning and looks really great on any skin tone!

I had Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato in AT 01 in Cassis Red on my lips and cheek. It was really easy to blend on my cheek and do remember it's really pigmented so a very little amount would be sufficient.

I love my soft flushed cheek colour! After a long day outside and with 2 meals in between, surprisingly I still can see the red colour stain left on my lips. As for my cheek, the colours last me a good whole day! And if you are into red lip colour, this is totally recommended!

Remember to go light with the eyes makeup when you have such a strong lip colour

Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato in AT 02 in Sugar Plum

Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato in AT 02 in Sugar Plum comes in fuchsia colour. This is the 2nd most pigmented colour after Cassis Red.
Texture : Creamy mousse texture but not sticky at all
Pigmentation : Very High ( Just 1 swipe is good enough)
Scent : None
As I prefer a more creamy & smooth finishing so I applied a  layer of Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato in AT 02 in Sugar Plum generously on my lips before using lip brush to define the lips.

After a long day outside, and with meals in between, the colour dried up to a matte finish. 

On my face I had Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato in AT 02 in Sugar Plum on my lips and cheek. This colour is very pigmented hence you must use really really little on your cheek to achieve this finishing. This Sugar Plum colour is one very classy colour to wear for night events, yet with a thin layer of application and good blending it can works well as day colour too. As now I'm into blue colour dress, I realised this colour matches blue really well.

Which colour do you like on me ? Left (AT 01 Cassis Red) or AT 02 (Sugar Plum)

Tips : For a matte stained look, use the fingers to blend and for a more dewy shiny finishing, please use the applicator or brush to apply.

Honestly I am sold - take my money! 

I absolutely adore the cream mousse texture and the different finishing it can delivers! This Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato is non sticky or drying yet pigmented, hence one layer is good enough to give a full opaque coverage. To me this is a hybrid lip product as this can works as lip colour and lip gloss as well.

Now Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato Lip & Cheek AT 02 in Sugar Plum is now permanently staying in my handbag as I think this is a great colour to wear and very easy to use when I need a quick touch up to glam up! And when I was at their counter few days ago, AT 04 Lemon Souffle (limited edition colour) caught my eyes as it has really fine golden shimmer and could apply on top on other colours to give more shine or to create an ombre/3D effects. I am thinking to get this!

Some may say RM90 is expensive but then again to me this is a 2 in 1 product ( or rather 3 in 1 as this can works as lip colour, lip gloss and blusher!) so I think this justify the price. Most importantly a little of this product goes a long way and there is not much of touch up needed! So I think it's quite a saving in long run! 

Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato Lip & Cheek is now available in all Shu Uemura Malaysia outlets for RM90 for 5.4ml.

FOTD : My attempt to re-create Japanese model Mai Miyagi's look

Most Japanese girls are blessed with fair & good skin. And I think not only their genetic is good but they really took the effort to take care of their skin! I remembered when I was in Japan earlier this year, I saw not only young woman but even middle aged woman or grandma busy buying skincare & makeup as well as if they are buying groceries. Be it beauty counters or drugstore, it is always full of ladies busy browsing beauty items from day to night! No girls will actually go out without makeup basically! And now I know it's genuine when Japanese brands clainmed they sell x number milion of product in Japan every minute, because Japanese are obessed with beauty products!

If you have realised in the pictures I posted here, I used to like very heavy eyes makeup until recently I like to go natural makeup because it is so easy to match with any outfit! And I always like how Japanese can still looked pretty in their simple nude makeup! Nude here would means the makeup we put on will only enchance face feature & it would look as if its natural beauty.

And this is a picture of Mai Miyagi (a Japanese model) looked in the Kiss Me fake eyelashes packaging and I really like how she look here. So here I am challenged to re-create this look and mainly will be using Kiss Me products !

Let's see what prodocts I used to re-create this look!

Products used in the makeover:-

-Shu Uemura Nobara cream cover stick foundation in 554
-Maybelline Angelfit Perfect concealer in Natural Beige
-Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Creamy Cheeks - #03 Peach Pink

-Lavshuca Melting Eyes OR-1 palette
-Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner N #01 Jet Black
-Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara
-Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Styling Eyelash (Rich)
-Kiss Me Heroine make Eyelash Fixer

-Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Pure Color Gloss #03 Skinny Pink

The highlight of the look is the eyes, here I'm featuring Kiss me Heavy Rotation Styling Eyelash (RM42.90) and I'm trying them for the first time. The one I'm having here is RICH type which I think it would gives my eyelashes a richer look.

Close-up look

The eyelashes is soft & easy to wear.

Nude eye makeup would means no fancy & vibrant colour. Here I am using one of my favourite eyeshadow pallete which I bought in Japan earlier this year i.e Lavshuca in OR-1 as it has this beautiful orange eyeshadow that will brighten up my eyes instantly with other matching beige and brown colour! If you ever going to go Japan, do chck out Lavshuca at any drugstore , the eyeshadow quality is as good as Lunasol one but cost less than RM50 for a palette!

The eyelashes really makes my eyes stand out and I like how it looked more awake!

This look is what I supposed to create.

Yay,this is my attempt to create Japanese model Mai Miyagi's look!

What do you think?

Do you think I succeed in re-creating Mai Miyagi's look?

FOTD : Oceanus eye makeup for Heineken Green Room Party

Yesterday I went to this awesome Heineken Green Room party and since the name of the event is GREEN, I decide to have some green colour eyeshadow on my eye makeup.

Let's see what I did ... in that 10 mins makeover since that I am actually going to be late for the event :D

Full face picture

For Face
Youngblood Mineral Primer as base
Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation in PO-03
Lancome Maqui Blanc Miracle Compact Foundation O-03
SkinFood Salmon Darkcircle Concealer Cream
Jill Stuart Blusher in #09 Little Bonquet

For eyes
Urban Decay Primer Portion ( The packaging is peeling and I cant stand it and removed it all away)
Kanebo Lavshuca in BR
Shu Uemura Graceful Bloom Palette
Lunasol palette in #04 Star River

p/s: Pls excuse me for my un-trimmed eyebrow. I gotta to make appointment for that now!

I decided to do a bit of colour mixing and Oceanus is my theme...i.e blue and green would be my main colour. And this is my first time writing down the steps after so long of not doing makeup of the day post, please excuse me if this sounds confusing.

I applied the beige colour from the Lavshuca palette all over my eyelid as a base colour. Then I applied the jungle green from the Shu Uemura palette all over the eyelid lightly and then the dark blue colour from Lunasol palette at the outer corner of the eyes to the middle and start blending in and mix with the jungle green colour. Then I applied the lime colour from the Shu Uemura palette at the inner corner of the eyelid and blend all the way to the middle. To make my eyes looked a bit bigger, I applied a thin line of jungle green colour below my eye lid from outer corner of my eyes to the middle and apply a little bit of lime colour at the lower eyelid from the middle to the inner of the eyes. Last but not least, I applied the white shimmering eyeshadow from Lunasol palette at my eyebrow.

Maybelline Magnum Volum Express Super Film Mascara
Maybelline Hypersharp Liner in Black
Kose Luminous Eyebrow pencil in GY 002

Maybelline Watershine Collagen Lipgloss in CP21

This is my new love, the colour is nude pink with no shimmer is perfect to pair with heavy eye makeup. This lip gloss has very nice sweet cherry scent and like to use it when the lip gloss is not sticky. Not only the colour of the lip gloss is pigmented, it gives my lips a very glossy look!

I think all my pictures are so exposed (means its too bright) and hence the eye makeup colour don't really show here *heartbroken*

Anyway hope you like this makeup :)
