Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick Launches
A full-coverage liquid lipstick delivering up to 14 hours of continuous wear, vivid color payoff, and a velvet matte finish. A proprietary blend of advanced polymers delivers intense, vibrant color for up to 14 hours, as well as a sophisticated velvet matte finish. Creates a breathable film of intense pigment that instantly bonds to the lips and seals in moisture with skin-conditioning emollients, fruit extracts and vitamins. Cili Fruit and Goji Berry extracts offer anti-oxidant protection for the lips, while Vitamins A, C and E nourish and protect. Rich formula glides on, provides cushion without tackiness and infuses the lips with dramatic color. Creates a silky smooth texture on the lips while filling in fine lines and preventing moisture evaporation.
Lips must be clean of other oils and balms to ensure proper binding of the fluid. Allow to set for 30 seconds to one minute. As the formula sets, the polymers bond to one another and create a protective, flexible “web” of color. Throughout the day, lips stay comfortable, while color film remains vibrant, elastic and firmly bound to the skin – without flaking or dryness. Extended coverage means you can literally set it and forget it over the course of the day. Free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates and lanolin.

Shiseido Lacquer Rouge Launches
Created by Shiseido Artistic Director, Dick Page, Lacquer Rouge is a rich liquid lip color that leaves lips beautifully polished in just one coat. Inspired by Japanese lacquer artistry, a 9,000-year old technique that delivers exceptional lustrous shine and an almost wet-looking finish to a wide variety of pieces, called “lacquerware.”
According to Dick, “the collection is about a speedy glamour. The simplicity of a lip gloss married to the intensity of a lipstick, a deep pigment and rich color payoff, and long-lasting shine and gloss.”
With just one coat, Lacquer Rouge provides intense color and a lacquer-like finish by simultaneously adhering deep, rich pigments and a topcoat-like shine. With continued use, Lacquer Rouge also improves dry or rough lips leaving them deeply moisturized and smooth. It includes the following key ingredient:
Super Hydro-Wrap Vitalizing DE: an advanced moisturizing ingredient that actively pushes moisture into lips and effectively retains it for hours.
