It’s not a secret that I adore everything Japanese; may it be the food, their makeup or fashion. Shiseido is one of Japans most famous high-end cosmetic export products, it’s a brand that I have never tried. That had to change. When at the cosmetic store my gaze fell onto the Perfect Rouge lipstick in RD142 Sublime. I say it’s time to test this baby out.
The texture of the Perfect Rouge lipstick by Shiseido lays somewhere in between matte and shiny. Personally I can really appreciate lipsticks like this; they aren’t too hard to apply nor do they glide off your lips. Another thing I like about this lipstick in shade RD142 Sublime is that the color you get on your lips is the color you see on the stick as its pigmentation is very good.
Packaging – Simple, but chic.
Amount of product – Good.
Texture – In between matte and shiny, the best texture you get can in my opinion.
Application – Very smooth.
Lasts – This lipstick by Shiseido doesn’t claim to be long lasting, it however does last quite long. Even after a greasy meal the product is still somewhat visible and doesn’t look weird when re-applied. Most important is that this lipstick makes your lips feel very moist.
Other colors available? – A whole lot of other colors are available! See them all HERE.
Price vs Product – The price lies between €20 -€25 depending on the store (same number in dollars), which is of course high, but not insane as Shiseido is a high end brand.
Overall impression – This lipstick has become one of my new favorites, mainly because of it’s amazing texture. It is a lovely lipstick to gift yourself or someone else in my opinion. Testing out the Perfect Rouge lipstick in Sublime has definitely made me curious to try other Shiseido products!
