£5 for a Shu Uemura Lipstick?

Wednesday, January 30, 2013
I ordered two lipsticks from Shu Uemura at SpaceNK last week and they arrived about an hour ago and I LOVE them! I bought them as they were only...£5 each! Yes, £5 - I couldn't not get them for that price! Full price these lipsticks are £19 or $30 each so I think I got a really good bargain!

I bought two Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Lipsticks in the shades 'BG 930' and 'BG 941' which were a couple of the last shades that were only £5. I didn't know what the shades would really look like so I was taking a bit of a chance but as I said they were only £5 each! Firstly, I love the packaging I think it looks so sleek and expensive and they lipsticks are quite weighty too. 
Natural lighting 
Here are the two shades! I particularly love the shade 'BG 941' but both of them are really nice. The shade 'BG 941' is a natural rosy pink in the tube but it comes out slightly brighter on the lips. The shade 'BG 930' is a natural brown nude with pink undertones - it looks pinker than it looks on the picture above. Both shades have a really nice smooth silky texture which makes them glide onto the lips really smoothly and they have a slightly glossy natural finish. They do have a bit of a plastic scent/taste. I only received them today so I can't really comment on anything else about these lipsticks but there will be a full review. Overall, my initial impressions of these lipsticks is very promising.
