Tsumori Chisato for shu uemura Rouge Unlimited Lipstick in Jupiter Brown Review, Swatches & Lip Shot

October 26, 2009


Tsumori Chisato for shu uemura ‘Rouge Unlimited’ Lipstickicon ($25) is, at least for me, one of those items that any serious makeup collector will feel the compulsion to own. I purchased mine sight unseen at the counter at Nordstrom as the testers were all missing and there was just one of these little darlings remaining.

While I thought the packaging was super kawaii online, it’s nothing compared to the cuteness this lippie exudes in person! The ‘Lucky Cat’ peeking out at you from the cap, the gold star and paw prints and the overall color scheme make this Tsumori Chisato for shu uemura ‘Rouge Unlimited’ Lipstick in Jupiter Brown such a delight to look at and own.


More review plus and hand and lip swatches and close-ups after the jump!

This Tusmori Chisato lipstick comes in one loan shade, Jupiter Brown, and while I wasn’t too into the pinky brown shade at first glance, it’s actually pretty beautiful on the lips. If you check out the close-ups down below you’ll see that this lipstick is heavy on the gold shimmer housed within a rosy pink base with some barely there brown undertones.


On my lips this turns into a sheer, glossy pinky brown shade with a generous helping of gold shimmer (this really does look pretty pink on me) and while I was expecting to love the packaging and to just tolerate the lipstick shade itself, this one is actually pretty gorgeous. It’s not the muddy brown that I’d feared (I don’t know who came up with the name Juptier Brown but I’m not a fan) but more a fleshy rosy shade lightened up by all the gold shimmer – really a beauty!




Of course the top lip shot was taken with flash, the bottom without. It was ridiculously hard to get a good representation of this shade on camera for some reason, so the bottom shade shows the gold shimmer whereas the top showcases the color a little more accurately. The shade actually has a little more gold to it in person, but it is beautiful and, being a Rouge Unlimited, the formula is of course glossy and wonderful.

What do you think?

I purchased this product myself. Just couldn’t resist the star, pawprints and cute cat calling to me from the aisles of Nordstrom!
