That I have had problems with many matte lipstick formulas drying my lips, may come as no surprise. For that very reason I am often reluctant to subject my lips to their drying effects, and have generally preferred more forgiving formulas. However, Shu Uemura is no typical beauty brand, and thus their matte lipsticks are far from ordinary. In fact, Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte Lipsticks are nothing, if not extraordinary.
Unlike many matte lipsticks, which often have dry textures, Shu's Rouge Unlimited Supreme Mattes have an irresistible creamy texture that is velvety smooth. They glide across the lips effortlessly, deposit color evenly and neither feather, nor bleed. Furthermore, the formula is moisturizing, it boasts the perfect amount of cushion for comfort, and rather than feeling heavy on the lips it feels light and emollient. These lipsticks also offer buildable coverage, and can be sheered out for a wash of color, or applied in multiple passes for full opacity. Rather than appearing dry and flat, these mattes have a little more dimension without straying from the matte finish.
I usually get several hours of wear per application, and while this formula lacks the same level of longevity as the very dry matte lipsticks on the market, the Supreme Mattes are so lovely that it is no bother to reapply them more often. In my estimation, this is the perfect matte formula, and definitely my very favorite.
