shu uemura’s new lip lacquer technology

shu uemura unveils a new lip lacquer technology that offers precise lip contour definition.

shu uemura laque supreme

Japanese artistry makeup brand shu uemura has just relaunched its Laque Supreme lip collection with some very interesting technology. This is a brand that is built on precision. If you watch Uchiide, the brand’s international artistic director, he works in minute strokes and pin-point application. It really is remarkable to watch. He works more like a fine painter than a traditional makeup artist. His placement of colour on the face is carefully thought through and perfectly placed.

So it is no surprise to see shu launch a new laque supreme lip colour collection with cutting-edge technology from Japan. The goal of the brand’s research and development team was to offer high-shine, high colour and a precisely defined lip contour in a long-lasting formula. Shu red dye is an essential colorant used to provide a deep, yet vivid colour. Lumier coating polymers (used in pharmaceutical and food industries) provide a coating that results in a translucent shine. Now here is what is particularly interesting: the lip lacquer product transforms upon application from a highly concentrated oil-in-liquid emulsion to a honeycomb-type structure that lightly adheres to lips. It resists feathering or running. It is a more even structure on the lips. The result is a fresh, smooth application. Even the applicator is new. It has a unique ergonomic shape designed to fit the curves of the lips and a tapered tip for precise contouring.

You’ll find 16 signature shades that range from nude to bold red.

    I feel like 2018 is shaping up to be truly a year of innovation! Even with a liner I find lipstick feathers and bleeds on me, and what is supposed to be a long lasting formula tends to leave me with just a ‘liner’ ring. I’m super excited to try this ingenious new product!

    That it lightly adheres to lips and it resists feathering or running, sounds fantastic. The new applicator looks nicely shaped to fit the lips alot better than the old one’s.

    I love these new lip products, they are like between a gloss and lipstick. I have watched many videos of Uchiide at work and I wish to learn how to do it like him. Sometimes I try copy but it does take practice! I think pink spirit is my colour, but there are a few pink shades In this release.
