Shiesido Perfect Rouge Lipstick: Roseate

Shiseido Roseate (RD734) Perfect Rouge Lipstick ($25.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a rosy brown with a creamy finish and opaque color coverage. It has a naturally glossy finish that doesn’t yield a lot of shine but creates dimension on the lips. This is a shade that just works–it’s not a nude but an everyday shade that adds color to the complexion but never competes with your features.

my thoughts on the formula: It’s moisturizing and applies evenly, while it wears for about four hours before beginning to fade. It is also scent- and taste-free. Perfect Rouge has a really beautiful color range and ranges from semi-opaque to opaque in color.

The Sultry Season: Shiseido Tawny (BR 735) Lipstick

Shiseido Tawny (BR 735) Perfect Rouge Lipstick ($25.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a warmed up caramel brown with a hint of coral. It’s semi-opaque and finishes with a noticeable glossiness.  I have always felt that Shiseido’s Perfect Rouge is rather under-appreciated, because it is such a flattering formula.

my thoughts on the formula: It’s moisturizing and applies evenly, while it wears for about four hours before beginning to fade. It is also scent- and taste-free. Perfect Rouge has a really beautiful color range and ranges from semi-opaque to opaque in color. The finish is a semi-gloss with very subtle micro-shimmer.

Shiseido Ocean Sunset (GD824) Satin Eye Color

Shiseido Ocean Sunset (GD824) Satin Eye Color

Shiseido Ocean Sunset (GD824) Satin Eye Color ($25.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a shimmering, paled yellow gold. Shiseido’s new line of Luminizing eyeshadows, trios, and blushes really impressed me–this is a soft gold (and it’s not meant to be brighter or darker) that’s great as an all-over lid shade or on the lower lash line. This eyeshadow has such a smooth, silky texture that’s nearly creamy with how buttery it is. It is nicely pigmented and applies evenly with no fall out.  The only downside is that these singles are a little pricey.

RECOMMENDATION: Such a smooth, silky textured eyeshadow, if yellow isn’t your cup of tea, they have several other shades that might be worth checking out at the counter.

Quick Reviews:  Shiseido PK107 Luminizing Satin Face Color

Shiseido PK107 Luminizing Satin Face Color ($30.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a soft, iridescent cool-toned icy pink that works best as a highlighter. The powder is so finely milled and soft that it feels like silk to touch and always natural on the skin. Whether you highlight cheekbones or dust a little for an all-over glow, it’s a great choice for those with cooler skin tones. It actually reminded me a bit of Guerlain’s famous Meteorites, because of the softness of the shimmer and the silkiness of the powder.

Welcome to Swatch-all-idays! To start 2011 off on the right foot (or post, as it may be!), Temptalia is going through a backlog of products we have photographed, swatched, and often tested but in a slightly different manner. Quick reviews may be partially incomplete, such as a blush may only be swatched on the arm rather than shown on the face. It is our hope that what we are able to provide is still helpful!

Going Natural: Shiseido PK327 Lipstick

Shiseido Tender (PK327) Perfect Rouge Sheer Lip Color ($25.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a beautiful petal pink with yellow undertones. Despite being part of Shiseido’s “Sheer” line, it adds quite a bit of pink to my natural lip color, plus a glossy shine. It’s by no means opaque, but the color itself is definitely there. It’s moisturizing and applies evenly, though it wears for about three hours before beginning to fade. It is also scent- and taste-free.
