Shiseido Code Red (221) VisionAiry Gel LipstickShiseido Code Red (221) VisionAiry Gel Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, medium red with neutral-to-cool undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, which covered my lips with even, smooth coverage. The texture was creamy and lightweight, which enabled the lipstick to skate across my lips with ease. The formula is extremely comfortable to wear but does eventually wear down to a more satin finish that has light tackiness (but doesn't lift the color or create patchiness) that I imagine helps this shade last well for nearly eight hours while still being very hydrating.
