Princess Coral Lip Cheek Tint by Shu Uemura

I received this gorgeous coral lip/cheek tint as a birthday gift a few months back from my BFF in Hong Kong. One of the best eyelash curlers I have is from Shu Uemura.  I have never tried cosmetics their cosmetics so I was very excited to try.

I believe the Princess Collectionby Takashi Murakami is a limited edition for the holiday season 2013. Isn't the packaging cute?

I enjoy lip cheek tint which gives a natural and staying power. My other favorites include Benetint by Benefit which is a liquid formula. The staying power of that is awesome but it is quite tricky to apply as you have to work really fast to blend the product. Otherwise, it would be too concentrated. Others are cream blushes and I find they dry out fast and make application difficult after a while.

This Princess Coral Lip Cheek Tint comes in a squeeze tube, just like your ordinary lip balm. The amount of product is easily controlled which I prefer.

The shade I have is Princess Coral which is a gorgeous pigmented coral shade. It may look quite intimating from the tube but when it is blended, it is very nice. I only squeeze half a pea-sized amount and blend it out and it is enough for my cheeks and my lips. A little goes a long way. I have other coral blushes but this one is not too orange. 

I applied this to my cheeks which has an average amount of staying power. Since it is a creamy formula, it is easily blended and give my cheeks a very natural look. As for my lips, I find it a bit drying on my lips and the lasting power is not as impressive as it is on my cheeks. 

Are you a fan of lip cheek tint? Or do you prefer powder formula?


  1. Oh very intense color!
    Comment to me back to keep in touch~


  2. So I guess this is the original version of the recent Gelato since it can be used both on cheeks and lips.
    I really like the flushed warm tone of this color. Pretty! :)

  3. Wow that is pigmented! I've never really been a fan of lip and cheek tints, but that's probably cause I never tried them though. The packaging is pretty!

  4. That is a really lovely shade x

  5. This shade is so pretty & perfect for Spring! :)

  6. Such a pretty shade! I have never heard of this brand, their packaging is so cute!
