Shu Uemura Vision of Beauty Vol.2 Haute Street Collection Tint in Gelato Lip and Cheek Color & Rouge Unlimited Lipsticks: Review and Swatches
In addition to some rainbow eye colors, the Shu Uemura Haute Street Collection also has some fun lip colors to play with including a new shades of the Tint in Gelato Lip & Cheek Colors ($28 CAD) and Rouge Unlimited Lipsticks ($36 CAD). To see some swatches, click.......
Shu Uemura Haute Street Tint in Gelato
Packaging:
Unlike the original Tint in Gelatos, the limited edition Haute Street Tint in Gelatos come in a squeezable tube with a rounded tip instead of the traditional lip gloss tube with a doe-foot applicator. The squeeze tube format is definitely more sanitary, but the design doesn't really accommodate application on the lips so a lip brush is needed for a clean application.

Formulation:
Settling somewhere between a liquid lipstick and a cream cheek stain, the Tint in Gelato is lightweight with a natural sheen. The formulation is creamy and non-tacky, it sits on the lips very comfortably. In terms of longevity, the Tint in Gelato wears off fairly quickly on the lips as it is not transfer-proof, however, it does leave behind a subtle tint. The wear is a lot better on the cheeks as the product seems to meld with the skin seamlessly.

Haute Street Rouge Unlimited Lipsticks
Packaging:
The Haute Street Rouge Unlimited lipsticks come in the original clear acrylic and silver lipstick tubes. Last year's Vision of Beauty lipsticks had some really jazzy packaging so I was kind of hoping the ones from this year would have some special prints as well.

Formulation:
The two shades from this new Haute Street Collection are both very sheer. "City Neon" looks like a scoring hot warm pink in the tube but it actually swatches like a sheer warm baby pink. "Avenue Sunset" looks like a neon orange in the tube but it too swatches much softer.
The formulation is moisturizing and slick but the wear is a bit short because the product doesn't really cling to the lips.

Overall:
I like the new shades of the Tint in Gelatos but I'm not sure how I feel about the new squeeze tube packaging. The Rouge Unlimited Lipsticks are both very buttery and moisturizing but the colors are a bit too sheer to my liking.
