Shu Uemura Tint in gelato

Shu Uemura Tint In Gelato Lip & Cheek Colour* £18.50 - I was super lucky a few months ago and managed to win one of the much coveted Dave Lackie Twitter Competitions. At first I wasn't too sure about my prize as I've never had anything from Shu Uemura before (no, not even the lash curlers!) and it wasn't a brand that I had heard much about. Needless to say these were received, swatched and then popped in my drawer for when I was feeling more daring to try something new. Boy was I wrong. After falling head over heels for my Stila Liquid Lipsticks I decided to give these a try as they appeared very similar. I was not disappointed. They have almost exactly the same formula as the Stila versions (although I don't think they're quite as thick, nor do they have the beautiful Vanilla scent that my Stila babies do) and they have the same fantastic staying power! They have a matte finish that's not at all drying and extremely comfortable to wear all day and the vibrancy of the colours is fantastic. The applicator is a little round for my liking but that's purely because I have quite small lips and thus need precision to not end up looking like a clown. I was so lucky to be sent a beautiful nude, a lovely coral and also a wonderful plum so I am well and truly set up for all seasons. The coral has been my most used up and till now but as we're firmly into Autumn (and dare I say it, winter) the plum is creeping out more and more often.
