Shiseido The Makeup Perfect Rouge in Fuchsia
On Friday, I also received Shiseido's Perfect Rouge lipstick in RS320 Fuchsia. While other makeup companies were putting out extensive spring collections, Shiseido The Makeup took a risky move and focused only on lip color, releasing 20 lipstick colors in a new lipstick line called the "Perfect Rouge." I think the move paid off.
The Perfect Rouge lipstick is smooth, creamy, and highly pigmented. It glides on like a dream and and stays on well. I didn't even moisturize my dry lips before applying the lipstick. RS320 Fuschia is a hot, blue-pink. I was a bit taken aback, at first, at how bold the color was because I wasn't expecting the lipstick to be so pigmented but I have come to love it. It is a trendy, chic color that still looks sophisticated in its own way, despite being so bright and perhaps a little flashy. I am someone who prefers a subdued, natural look but I feel perfectly comfortable in the color. I've been pairing it with Shiseido The Makeup Hydro-Powder Shadow in Green Exotique and it is stunning. I have always been a big fan of Shiseido. My first makeup products came from their counter and I continue to use their products today. But I am particularly pleased with this new, edgier direction Dick Page is taking the brand. It is bold and chic yet still very Shiseido.
