I was also under the impression that these were longlasting. I thought these were Shiseido's answer to the YSL glossy stains. On me this lasted 30 minutes and it isn't glossy at all. I got this in Nymph, thinking it would be an deep MLBB red. The color was beautiful but on my very pale, yellow-undertoned NC15 winter skin, it was just too severe and loud. It also bled like crazy so I looked like I had been eating cherry popsicles. The formula is comfortable - not too drying but also not moist. I returned it because I was looking for something more natural and longer-lasting.
I have colour RD 305 which is for me- my lips but better, darker and pinker-kind of shade.
-The packaging is very simple and I often confuse in which part is an applicator.
It doesnt smell (at least I dont feel any) and its consistency is on thicker side. Its very pigmented in just one smudge.
-In comparison to YSL this one is not as glossy, it doesnt leave vinyl-like shine, it is very creamy and lipstick like. Its not as sticky, its not as drying and doesnt stain as strongly as YSL one.
Its just like not drying super creamy lipstick which cant break in half :) I really like it although I feel shiseido products arent much popular in Paris...
Nocturne is a wonderful deep red that I love with a cat eye or neutral eye.
Nymph is for me a work day color, as it is just slightly darker and rosier than my natural lip but still very subdued.
Drama is a brighter cooler red than nocturne, and I always receive compliments on my "perfect red lip" when I wear it :)
The description of these is accurate- intense color and deep luster!
The formula is quite thin, and I use a lip brush with angles to help apply it correctly to the bow on my upper lip and it stays creamy and doesnt dry my lips out. If you arent eating or drinking from a glass, it also stays and stays on.
The only con for me (and reason I removed one star) is that it comes off on everything so easily! If you touch it after you apply it, it will smear. This is frustrating if you have to sneeze or even accidentally touch a corner of your mouth when brushing your hair out of the way...because it will get on your hands, smear to your cheek, and end up on the tissue. It is still the best deep red and red Ive found and it doesnt dry my lips out and it looks fantastic on. So I would repurchase, I am just very mindful of not touching it :)
This is a nice lip lacquer/gloss, but unfortunately I picked a shade that wasn't flattering on me. It has a nice viscous texture that isn't too tacky or sticky feeling, and is super pigmented, like a liquid lipstick. The shade I picked, Nymph, was a pinch too dark even for my pigmented lips (I was looking for a rosy MLBB shade), but I'd be open to trying the other shades from this line. Love that it's scent-free and that it's reasonably priced at $25.
Very impressed. I'm very aware of lip products shrinking or drying down on my lips and this wore so comfortably. MAJOR shine factor and deep, pigmented color. It migrated a bit on the corners of my mouth but my lips still looked presentable 5 hours later...even after eating Taco Bell. I reach for lip balm constantly and felt no need to while wearing this. It eventually kissed off, but I did not become the Joker. My lips were left tinted with sparkle. Loooove.
i have lacquer rouge in nocturne and savage (fyi, I'm nc42 with pigmented lips) - i've been loving the recent new releases of long-lasting lip gloss/liquid lipstick (see ysl, hourglass, mufe, shiseido). i've always looked for a product like lacquer rouge, something that has the texture of gloss with the pigmentation and opacity of lipstick. on me, savage is a beautiful dark brown-nude, while nocturne is truly my perfect red. one lippie off for the length of wear time (about 1-2 hours if i'm careful), but that's really my fault (i'm the kind to smack my lips). great colors, great wear - beautiful product.
This is a recently release. A non-sticky, pigmented intense lipgloss or liquid lipstick . Lasts me around 3 hours before needing to re-apply. Its similar to Chanel Rouge Allure Laque or Lancome La Laque Fever Ultimate Lasting Lipshine. However it doesn't have that yummy Fig scent or the thick slick feel of the Lancome. I think its a slightly thinner formula.
My favorite favorite color is Disco, a bright hot pink creme that works with my fair skin. Its so chic and adds an intense yet still totally wearable neon pop to a nude makeup. Applies evenly, and quickly covers all my lip pigmentation.
Portrait is a creamy muted pink creme similar to Chanel Allure Laque in Empire. I think its a nice, pretty, safe color but it gave me a big lipped trout pout.
Nocturne is a darkish bright red with gold shimmer. When the color wears of it leaves a rose pink stain with lots of little gold shimmers.Because the gold shimmer in it reflects light, it looks brighter viewed under lights and turns darker vampish in low lighting. Worn full intensitity I feel it needs the lips lining first plus a bit of care to get it looking even. Otherwise it looks jammy with messy smudged edges. It can be applied as a much thinner application, then blotted, which stains the lips and looks quite natural with less effort. This lasts much longer too. Its not really a good color for my fair skin as it makes me look ruddy. I found the shimmers really irritated my lips but it probably wouldn't bother most people.
