Shiseido Murrey, First Bite, Toffee Apple, Burning Up Rouge Rouge Lipsticks

Shiseido Murrey (RD305) Rouge Rouge Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a soft sheen. This shade had very, very subtle streakiness due the more emollient consistency. I didn’t notice it from a normal viewing distance, but it is visible in the close-up. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and easy to apply as it didn’t tug or drag on the lips. It had mostly opaque color coverage that went on evenly. I was able to get four and a half hours of wear out of the lipstick, and it was moisturizing. Chanel Roussy (426) (P, $37.00) is lighter (90% similar). Shiseido Coral Shore (RD309) (P, $28.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Sunny Seoul (P, $17.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Givenchy Rose Boudoir (204) (P, $36.00) is brighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Fiend (DC, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Bright Peony (P, $35.00) is brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Round-up: Viseart Blush Palettes Overview

Viseart Blush Palettes
Viseart Blush Palettes

When the four variations of Viseart Blush Palettes ($80.00 for 0.84 oz.) were announced, I was excited to see the brand expand into cheek color, but I find I am much less impressed, overall, with their formula than I have been with their eyeshadow formula. They apply and look better on the cheeks than merely swatched, and they wear longer, but the coverage varies from shade to shade and some are easier to blend than others. Ultimately, they are decent to good but not impeccable, and I’m used to better from the brand, so I think that is why I ended up being a bit underwhelmed. I agree with a lot of readers who made comments to the effect that selling these as trios would have worked better for the consumer, though Viseart is a brand that was professional first, so I can see why they stayed within that vein as well. My favorites were the shimmery shades, as they were a lot easier to use and more consistent than the more matte shades.
