I’ve long admired Shiseido make-up, and not just because I have Japanophile tendencies. With one foot firmly in the East and the other in the West, Shiseido have a knack of influencing the biggest beauty trends, crafting products that are exceptional both in quality and in innovation. Their emphasis upon striking colour and high tech results is no better represented than in my favourite product of theirs, the Shiseido Lacquer Rouge Lipstick – if you’re wanting to break into the wonderful world of Shiseido colour cosmetics, this is the perfect place to start!
Lacquer Rouge is a liquid lipstick, one of those hybrid formulas that give you plenty of pigment and gloss without any dryness or stickiness. It has a comfortable balmy texture and an opaque finish, which means you can just swipe and go. Build layer by layer for more intensity, or just dot on and blend for a more subtle look. One of the facets that sets Rouge Lacquer apart is its infusion of Shiseido’s exclusive moisturising complex Super Hydro-Wrap Vitalizing DE, which holds moisture close to the lips and ensures lips are soft all day. Gorgeous!
