First time when I told you about the new Shiseido Lacquer Rouge that is going to be launched this Fall it was in the post were I showed you My makeup products from Shiseido (photos & swatches). I received Shiseido Lacquer Rouge in shade RS404 together with some other makeup products from Shiseido Romania to test and review them.
I don’t know the International Launch Date for this product or the retails price but in Romania it will be available at Shiseido counters in Sephora, Douglas and B&B stored in August – September 2012. I will return with more info and promo photos once they will become available.
The packaging is simple and elegant, a black shiny tube with Shiseido watermark on one side. Nothing fancy because here not the packaging is the star but the new lip gloss formula. It comes with a doe-foot applicator.
Shiseido Lacquer Rouge in RS404 (6ml / .2 fl oz) is a rich pink raspberry with blue undertones, very pigmented and with a rich creamy texture. Honestly for me this feels like a combination between a lipstick which can deliver an opaque color and has a creamy texture and a lip gloss with super shiny finish and lightweight texture. It gives a deep lustre and intense color hydrating even the rough lips. The lips are plumped and the texture even though is similar with a melted lipstick is lightweight. It doesn’t sink into lips, it’s not sticky and it’s very easy to wear.
Before applying the color you should mix the formula thoroughly in the container using the applicator. It’s scent free and long lasting. It wears on me for about 6 hours (eating & drinking too) and fades away evenly leaving a sheer raspberry color. My lips were still moisturized and hydrated so I didn’t felt the need to apply a lip balm afterwards.
This shade is very pigmented and it should get along with all skin shades. It would be interesting to find out the price but I until them I’m happy to wear this shade and I’m looking forward to seeing the new colors.
