My take on the product

 

This lipstick belongs to my Mum and the first Shiseido product I’ve ever tried. Even though it is quite expensive, everything about this lipstick spells luxury! It comes in a metallic grey tube packaging with a unique cross section shape. The packaging looks really sleek and elegant. On the downside, there is no colored label, only one indicating the name code RD 629 which can be a little difficult to remember.

The texture of this lipstick is super smooth and almost balm like. It gives sheer coverage and color one swipe which can be built up in 3-4 swipes. On coming in contact with the lips, the  bullet tip warms up and melts a little to give super smooth balm-like texture to give a smooth glide on the lips (See the images for the warm melting effect). The application of this lipstick feels so luxurious !

It is essentially a sheer lipstick that gives a good tint to the lips while giving a lovely glossy shine and luscious plumping effect as well. The coverage is not opaque but in 3-4 swipes it covers up my pigmented lips quite well.  I had not expected it to last more than 2 hours since it is sheer but to my surprise it lasts 3-4 hours easily even with full meals in between. It is quite moisturizing and makes the lips softer and smoother. It fills up the fine lines of the lips to give a smoother appearance. It feels very comfortable on the lips though the gloss wears off after some time /meals leaving behind a subtle natural red tint. It does not feather, bleed or smudge.

The shade RD 629 Natural Red :

The shade is a gorgeous sheer red that looks more of a pinkish red on my lips. Women who are shy of bolder reds would love this shade since it has the oomph factor that red always adds to the face without being too overpowering.  I’ve been wearing this shade with western as well as ethnic outfits since the past few days and it goes with everything! I generally wear this with a little golden eye shadow, mascara and warm blush and it gives a beautiful glowing look to the face. The luscious glossy finish adds a lot of freshness to the face.

Highly recommended!

Overall Verdict

 

Shiseido Perfect Rouge Tender sheer lipsticks are super smooth sheer lipsticks that add luxurious shine and color to the lips that stays on for 3-4 hours. The coverage is sheer to medium but it gives enough color to cover pigmentation. The texture is balmlike that fills up the fine lines to give a smoother appearance to the lips. The formula is amazing and the packaging is quite sleek and elegant too. The shade Natural Red is a sheer red that adds a fresh glow to the face without being too overpowering.

In terms of experience, its the best lipstick I’ve used so far. It feel so comfortable and beautiful on the lips that I feel like using it everyday! Apart from the price tag  and shade availability, there is nothing unpleasant about this product!

Highly recommended to everyone.
