This was given to me as a gift. It’s actually my very first Shu Uemura lipstick. Although I love their eyelash curler (been with me for 6 years na LOL) and a fan of their glow-ons because of how it naturally melts on the skin and looks natural. Sometimes I find it strange na those I really really really love, sila pa yung hindi ko narereview! Products taken for granted.

I really thought they mistyped and it’s read as Sunset Avenue, but yes, it is Avenue Sunset

In my observation it’s a red lipstick with strong orange undertones

It has a sheer and glossy finish which can be layered on for a stronger color. It looks scary and intimidating in the tube but applies like a tinted lip balm

Review

Texture – Smooth, glides easily and not sticky at all
Staying power – I notice that glossy lipsticks tend to wipe off easily but this one is different. It actually has a decent staying power. It lasted on my lips without feathering for 4 hours
Color – I’m not fond of orange lipsticks, it makes me look….old.
Packaging – Packaging is awesome! The clear case makes it easy to spot the color compared to *cough*mac*cough*nars* that I have to look at the bottom to know what shade I’m getting. It’s surprisingly secure too!
Will I re-purchase? Yes but I’ll try a different shade. Do you have any recommendations?
