Described by the brand as ‘sheer, brilliant color (that) infuses lips with lasting moisture and fullness’, Shiseido Shimmering Rouge lipsticks (S$43) contain plumping and moisturising ingredients that impart lightness and dimension to the lips for a pretty pout.
‘A new sophisticated take on shimmer and color’, Dick Page developed this range as an extension to the original Perfect Rouge (those gorgeous, silky lippies!) as a transition between the classic finish of the latter and the casual effect of lipglosses.
In 13 different hues, each colour has an interesting edge to it – they might look ordinary at first glance but a simple swatch reveals complex tones that are underscored by the infusion of reflective shimmer.
Here are swatches of these lipsticks:
RD601 Golden Dragon: A red that is at once deep in tone and light in texture. A slightly cooler version of the iconic Perfect Rouge in D514 Dragon.
BE702 Alabaster: A silver beige that would set off greyed smokey eyes beautifully.
BE303 Ingenue: A golden beige.
BR304 Grace: A deep, golden brown.
OR405 Sizzle: A pretty coral that has shades of orange sorbet.
RD406 Desire: A cool, mid-toned red.
PK407 Stiletto: A blue-pink with pretty multi-coloured shimmer.
RS308 Iron Maiden: A striking violet rose with complex sparkles. The signature colour of the collection.
RD709 Lounge: A brick with hints of sophisticated grey tones.
RS313 Brocade: A rose reminiscent of rich, woven fabric.
PK311 Pink Champagne: An effervescent peach pink that has a youthful feel to it.
RS312 Iced Rose: A blue-red with a semi-frosty sheen.
RD713 Discretion: A chic, grey-brown.
