shu uemura reigns supreme with the new matte lipsticks!

I usually know what I want. Except when there's too many choices {and sometimes I just get it all}. Then the shu uemura Rouge Supreme Matte collection happened and one of the hardest choices I made this week is probably to choose which shade I like. MDR. Morte de Rire or LOL in French (thank you, Reyna and Tans for the introduction.)

It was a hump day and I had been feeling way crappy for my own good that I swung by shu uemura Rockwell to pick a bullet of one of their shades of the new collection. Pretty much like a little girl on Christmas Day, my mood was up in the heavens and I was so happy tinkering about the store, puttering over the eye shadow colors and milling about in the white interiored store.

rouge unlimited supreme matte
breathtaking matte finish, yet with comfortable glide on lips achieved with soft creamy texture formulated with signature hybrid pigments that provide pure, high fidelity, intense and deep color pay-off.

As I chatted with shu uemura's Karen, I took each bullet for a test on my lips and my top 2 were definitely PK 376 {a deep, hot fuschia pink, which Frances got} and PK 348, a light pink that resembles my personal favorite, MAC Please Me. The last of the six colors that the store carried was BG 931, an opaque nude shade which disinterested me at first glance. I had such fat, siopao face that a nude lipstick would make me fat.

BG 931 hardly showed on my skin! See bottom part of my hand.

Guess what shade I got that made my crappy day turn around.

 Talk about love at second swatch. 

{Excuse the dryness}... because I fell in love with BG 931 as I tried it on.
