Shu Uemura is a Japanese cosmetic brand, and though I've heard about them before, I haven't had the chance to try out any of their products prior. Being a Japanese brand, I had the idea that most of their products, especially their range of foundations, were catered more toward fair-skinned people, but was I proven wrong! At the launch, I was given a bottle of Shu Uemura Face Architect Fluid Foundation, and I opted for one of the darker shades they had, 734 Rich Beige, to match my tanned complexion.
It was a perfect match for my tanned skin! Usually, I have alot of trouble finding the right shade of foundation for myself, as most are either appear too white on me, or too orangey. The Shu Uemura Face Architect Fluid Foundation in 734 Rich Beige has a subtle sun-kissed glow to it, which I love, and I especially adore the fact that it feels so light on my skin. I felt as if I had nothing on my face at all. Coverage-wise, you only need a little bit of product to hide all the flaws, and the finish of the product is very natural and dewy, a plus point from me!
The other item I was able to take home (and try out at the event) is a new range of very creamy lipsticks called Rouge Unlimited. I was on the lookout for a good red lipstick, so I opted for their 170, a lovely orangey-red shade.
