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.

Product & Review FAQ

Where can I purchase Roseate? How much is it?

Nordstrom, $25.

Is it limited edition?


Any dupes?

MAC Cosmo seems like it would come the closest--perhaps a touch deeper.

    beautiful everyday colour – I love how glossy yet opaque it looks

  2. Alexis

    Beautiful! Resembles Revlon’s rosy nude, but that one doesn’t have the brown in it.

  3. I love this range, Have PK 303 to match with Chanel Nailpolish Rouge Confidentielle and I am sure going to get myself some more. Tried the shimmering rouges also, they have youger and fab colours, the classic range is more “bussiness”

  4. Oh my goooooood, this is AMAZING!

  5. Vanessa S

    Thats a pretty nudish pink color. It looks good on you.

    I rushed to apply my Cosmo and see if it looks like this on me, but something is missing. Maybe Cream in Your Coffee is a better dupe of this shade for me at this season – brazilian summer! I am like MAC Tinted Moisturizer in Dark by now. What do you think? Thanks in advance!

  7. Sarah May

    It looks like a your lips, but better color. :) It’s quite pretty!

  8. Marcela

    gorgeous! looks very “juicy”! i hope the MAC dupe is close enough cuz i’m not willing to pay more than MAC price for a lipstick.

  9. What a sophisticated color! Looks great on you, too. I really need to start paying more attention to Shiseido!

  10. Sexy Sadie

    Love this one.

  11. Melissa

    You have the most perfect shaped lips that I’ve ever seen! Do you use lipliner before using the lipstick? Do you apply the lipstick itself or you use a lip brush?

    Reminds me a bit of Guerlain Rouge G Garance – though this is perhaps a bit rosier and less coral.

    Still, very lovely!

  14. ak

    It looks great on and quite warm.

  15. Shilpa

    OMG – love it! Must get it!

  16. Carlee

    oh how pretty!

  17. anonymous

    Love this shade! Looks gorgeous on you– very natural and flattering. Great texture. Perfect for smoky eye looks or natural looks. You have made your case counsellor.

  18. Karen

    the lip and skin swatch is ok, but when you see your whole face it’s stunning. the shade looks wonderful on you

  19. eRiN

    I love this color on you, but I feel like it could pretty easily be duped with an NYX Round, and then you save $$ (which being me, would then get spent on even more makeup, lol)!

  20. wow nice! Sort of my lips but better colour!

  21. Fey

    It is the color of liver.
    The formula looks fantastic though. Great review.

  22. Laia

    It’s a very nice lipstick! I’ve bought it this afternoon and it looks browner on me (according to MAC I’m NW30) but this can definitely be my stapler for a nude lip. Thank you very much for the review, Christine! :)

    • Laia

      I think I have another dupe… just seen that Chanel Incognito looks a bit like the same on my lips, perhaps a tad icier.

  23. venice

    love the color and quality of application by both shisheido and bobby brown l/s brands. sadly, they do not last that long on humid weathers. i have to throw them out as they smell really bad after 6 months.=(

  24. Ms Laurence

    I bought this Shiseido Perfect rouge in RD734, but when I received it from Sephora France, I can notice that the color looks dark, very “dull brown”, very different from the one shown on your blog, and it is called “la vie en rose” (not “roseate) : I do not like it and I will return it to Sephora without testing it.
    My question is :do you think that Shiseido puts different names but same ref. number for a different shade result, depending on the countries for their lipticks ? I am very puzzled so please, give me an answer !
    Thanks in advance !

    I bought this from Sephora the other day, along with the YSL cream blush that was back in stock in the color fuchsia!
