Bought this on a whim in the airport--didn't even try it, just looked at it in the tube. Turns out to be an amazing MLBB nude for me (Mac NW20).
The formula is really nice and comfortable and has no scent (which is really important to me). It has a bit of sheen but is not glossy. Very soft and natural.
The tube is a nice metal in a cool purple with a nice shape. Elegant and not heavy.
Absolutely perfect MLBB for NW20, dark hair, dark eyes, pigmented lips. Feels like silk; beautiful shine; lasts much longer than MAC Lustre. (YAY!)
This doesnt feel like a lipstick at all. It applies smoothly, feels light, yet stays on. Color is also versatile good for day or night wear.
This lipstick is wonderful for it matches MY lipcolor by enhancing the color. I love how it is very moisturizing, glides on very easily, and is rich in color. You definitely get what you pay for with this lipstick, and I agree that a little application of this lipstick does go a long way. The color can be worn down for every day, or worn up for a night out. It's a very versatile color which is always a plus for a lipstick. The packaging is beautiful, but I always found Shiseido lipstick packaging to be quite elegant compared to other department brands. If you are tired of trying lipsticks that dry up your lips or are too sheer, definitely give this a try when you walk by the Shiseido counter. The staying power is decent, but I don't expect much from any lipstick when it comes to staying power anyway.
I actually love this pink/brown color...it can be worn all 4 seasons. Almost perfectly matches my natural lip color (only has brown in the color which doesn't make the match exact). I would definitely repurchase this...but I don't think I'll have to for years as a little goes a long way!
Perfect Rouge lipsticks are matte, pure-color lipsticks. They come in new black tubes with the cap shaped in signature Shiseido logo.
#303 (Pink Mesa) is a brownish pink that is not dull at all. Somehow the pink manages to be alive, while the brown tames it ever so gently. The texture is soft and creamy. It hydrated my lips after some minutes of wearing. Shade 303 did not make me feel overly made up, rather it put together the makeup look into a clean, consistent finish.
So far, Maquillage and Shisedo lipsticks are the best I've tried. They manage to be comfortable on the lips and their hues suit the skin so well.
