Hello and happy Sunday everyone! Today we are finally talking about Shiseido. I’ve been a fan of this brand for many, many years. I just love their take on beauty, skincare and textures. Some Shiseido skincare products are my holy grails and I can’t even imagine my life without them because I haven’t found a better replacement. Surprisingly their makeup products have never disappointed me either.
A few months ago I purchased some Shiseido skincare and got this discovery kit as a present. Let me just tell you: this is the way to present the new products! A beautiful box, inspiring words – you can feel that someone created this kit for you to enjoy it.
Let’s look closer at the products. I’ve already tried Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate, it’s a good serum but I like Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Complex II so much more. Bio-Performance Lift Dynamic cream is a good one too, but, to be honest, there are better ones out there. Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation is a great product, I really like it and I think it deserves its own post.
And Rouge Rouge lipstick is absolutely AMAZING! It is described to us as “a rich, creamy and vibrant red that becomes one with your lips thanks to its unique formula that gives an amazing adherence“. This lipstick is available in 16 shades “in an extraordinary spectrum of reds“.
It’s said on the official website that “Using Vibrant Red Color Technology, Shiseido has exclusively developed sixteen of the most flattering shades-nuanced, intense, unforgettable with a red for everyone“. And there is no lies in these words.
I think they did a great job. The colors are truly beautiful and each of them applies evenly. The cool thing is that you can apply it in a thin layer to achieve a natural look and it would be even, smooth and not blotchy at all. Or you can add an extra layer and make it super vibrant. But it will still feel lightweight on your lips. Sounds summer perfect, right? The texture is creamy but it’s not too soft or sticky or greasy. It’s just perfect 🙂 The formula is very hydrating, it makes your lips look smooth and plump.
My absolute favourite shade is Ruby Copper RD501. It’s a bright, medium-dark ruby red with cool undertones. It’s very pigmented, the texture is smooth, creamy and lightweight. It’s moisturizing but it doesn’t feather or bleed. Ruby Copper is a perfect color for any occasion. It looks great with everything from evening dresses to ripped jeans and white t-shirts.
Here it is on me in a natural daylight.
I also like Burning Up RD310 a lot. This one is a chameleon. Sometimes it looks pinky red and sometimes it’s more like a deep peachy pink. And if you apply it in a thin layer it could be a perfect nude. Natural kind of nude, that is not too light.
Here it is in action. Just a tiny little bit, in a very thin layer.
Thank you for your attention, my friends! I hope this review was helpful. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask;)
