If you hair is feeling the effects of winter and is looking dull and dry you will want to check out the new Color Lustre Brilliant Glaze line from Shu Uemura. It’s Pure decadence for winter ravaged hair. The products smell amazing and they have made my hair soft and silky without weighing it down.. Check out the different products below and my thoughts on each.
SHU UEMURA ART OF HAIR introduces a new innovation to preserve color vitality – the new COLOR LUSTRE BRILLIANT GLAZE line. True to the brand’s DNA, COLOR LUSTRE draws inspiration from painting and art restoration, applying a unique approach to hair care and color protection.
SHU UEMURA ART OF HAIR looked at how artists meticulously care for their masterpieces, often restoring a canvas by employing a varnish of oils to protect the painting against its main attacker – water. Similar to a canvas, hair has a natural protective varnish which creates a hydrophobic barrier along the fiber. However, the hair coloring process and regular washing break down this protective layer, leaving the fiber rough and causing color to fade, resulting in damaged, dry and dull strands.
With this in mind, COLOR LUSTRE is the first color-treated line specifically formulated with a powerful refining lipid that restores the hair’s natural protective varnish to limit color washout, leaving it vibrant and polished with maximum shine.
Drawing from the brand’s oil expertise, the line is infused with refining lipid (18 MEA) to polish the hair, and reveal true vibrancy and color radiance. Additionally, COLOR LUSTRE is formulated with rare and precious ingredients to prevent oxidation and illuminate hair:
- Goji Berry Extract: the most concentrated natural source of anti-oxidants for protecting color
- Musk Rose Oil: rich in omega and other fatty acids to nourish the hair
Just a small coin sized amount and my hair is left clean and smelling amazing. I love that it doesn’t have sulfates so it won’t dry my hair out or leave it frizzy.

A weekly ritual now, Color Lustre Brillant Glaze Treatment helps mend hair from daily abuse. I love to work a dollop through my hair then put a hair cap on and let the treatment go to work.

And it really protects my hair so its still smooth and shiny even after blow drying and straightening.
