Review+Swatches - Shiseido 2013 Spring Lippies
Let’s get down with some pink lippies from SHISEIDO’s Spring 2013 Collection. I was able to get my paws on a Lacquer Rouge, Perfect Rouge and Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer from the collection and it seems that there has been some formula changes. Which one/s? Click after the jump to find out!
First, these three names are really confusing me right now when referring to each one writing up this post. Is it the Lacquer Rough that’s the gloss or is that the Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer? I think they should have just made it simple and called it Lipstick, Lip Gloss and then had slight deviations from there.
Anyway, let’s put two aside and look at one. First up, the Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer in RD 506 – Foxy, or as I’m calling it for this piece, the lipstick in the ruby tube, accompanies 5 other new colors for spring. It’s a medium rose color and has the words Tokyo Ginza embossed along the bottom of the lipstick band. Cute!
Next is the Lacquer Rouge in RD 309 – Carnelian, the lip gloss, has to be my favorite of the three and rarely do I choose a lip gloss over a lipstick because I like coverage on my lips and for the most part, glosses to give that. This is a mauve color and it lasted a few hours on my lips. Love!
The last one is Perfect Rouge in OR 544 - Tiger, or as I have renamed it, the lipstick in the black tube. And this is the one with the formula update (like how I mention it last??). Each now includes Hyaluronic Acid for added moisture and this orangy one is a welcome spring addition for any collection. Layering is encouraged! $25 each @ nordstrom.com.
