Over the past five years, I’ve been addicted to what beauty editors call the highlight crack pipe. I got my first taste in 2008 at a fancy Chelsea salon when the colorist practically drooled with glee over my virgin hair color. Since then, I’ve been everything from blonde to bronde to hot pink to light pink to Tony the Tiger orange (the last three were professional hair color accidents). I never seem to be done highlighting my hair. As a result, my hair has been dry, dull, and parched. But with Shu Uemura’s new Color Lustre shampoo/conditioner, my hair is finally sated. An update on the original Shimmer formula loved by Amy Adams’s hairstylist from American Hustle, this new iteration has an improved lipid delivery system that delivers moisture to hair. My hair always feel soft while still keeping its body, and never looks like it’s asking for more (other than maybe another color change).
