Shiseido Rouge Lacquer in RD607 Nocturne

I have always wanted to get my hands on Chanel Lip Lacquer in Dragon - but after months and months of pondering, sadly, they discontinued the line. So when Sephora offered a free deluxe sample of the Shiseido Rouge Lacquer in Nocturne (a shade I feel is quite similar to Dragon), I happily dropped it on my online basket.

See how my face has this pink-ish tinge? That's Revlon Whipped Warm Golden's fault.

Shiseido Rouge Lacquer in RD607 Nocturne ($25/full size) is a gorgeous deep red with some very subtle flecks of shimmer. Shiseido Rouge Lacquers are formulated to provide intense color and deep luster - I wish I knew the latter earlier because I hate the feeling of glossy lips. I thought it was going to dry to a matte finish, but no, it feels like a lipgloss more than anything. Although, I did get this for free so why I'm fretting exactly, I have no idea...

I'm so used to traditional lipsticks that I apply directly from the tube so applying the Rouge Lacquer took a some getting used to. It has a flexible doe-foot applicator that made application to the upper lip (cupid's bow area) so much easier. One swipe will give you a very opaque coverage already so you need to be extra careful when applying this to prevent any kind of feathering and/or smearing. It feels very moisturizing, too! Definitely one of the most comfortable lipsticks I've ever put on.

It's beautiful - but it's not for me.

Don't get me wrong, I do like the color very much, it's the formula I'm not fond of. Because it's a "wet" lipstick, I thought it would smear on me as soon as I take eat. And I was right, after taking a bite of a burger, the lipstick transferred to my food. It didn't even leave any hint of stain on my lips - all that's left were the shimmers. :(

What's your favorite liquid lipstick?

  3. I agree, this seems more like for a magazine cover type of lipstick. I think that with strong colors, I'm better off with mattes.

  4. The colour is gorgeous, such a shame it didn't last very long!

  5. GANDA!! So vampy! is that you Bella Swan? :) hihi

    The shade is gorge but I have to agree Im not a fan of liquid lipstick as well. Except ones that turn matte. :) Im not a fan of shimmers either!

  6. But it looks great on you! Smokey eyes, flawless base, plus this -- I think it would look amazing.

  7. The colour is lovely- it really suits you.

  8. Ahhh, it looks so pretty. My fave liquid lipstick is Guerlain's L'Extrait! I like that Revlon's doesn't move but it sits so uncomfortably on the lips.

  9. This is stunning! The only liquid lipstick I've tried so far is by Loreal but hopefully the Rimmel Apocolips will be in the US soon.


  10. OMG! I love the color! I don't have a favorite liquid lipstick yet coz, like this one, the color transfers. But I wanna try this out if only just for beauty shots and outfit shots. Thanks for the review! :) Following you now!
