Shu Uemura expands its Lacque Supreme universe with 11, stunning new shades

Glossy lips haven't been trending as much as matte lips as of late, but there's still space in the lippie universe for natural, glossy finishes. In fact some predict that '70s makeup and more undone lips will be the big trends of 2018. If you want a lipstick that feels like nothing and applies like a breeze, the Lacque Supreme is a great choice. Everything has been well thought out when it comes to this glossy, liquid  lipstick, from the unique applicator, that hugs the curves of the lips for a precise application, to the resist feathering contour technology that prevents it from bleeding.

Shu Uemura Lacque Supreme

In terms of colour choices, the brand has kept its five, most popular colours, and added 11 more. The selection now include more nudes, pinks and corals, which on first sight might look quite safe, but are actually a comprehensive selection of wearable shades for every undertone. From a sophisticated, plum wine, to beige-y nudes (there are three options) to five pretty in pink shades, there's a hue that's bound to be a go-to colour for every lipstick lover.
