Shiseido Rouge Rouge Lipstick

Shiseido Bloodstone (RD503) Rouge Rouge Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep red with subtle, warm undertones and fine, ruby red pearl. It had rich, opaque color payoff that applied beautifully–it yielded even, smooth coverage that didn’t emphasize lip lines. The texture was lightly creamy, smooth, and comfortable to apply and to wear. This shade wore well for seven hours on me, left behind a stain, and was moisturizing.

Shiseido Rose Crush (RD715) Rouge Rouge Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with warm undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. The consistency was smooth, creamy, and glided on without tugging on the lips, but it wasn’t too heavy or too thin, so it sat well on the lips and wore well. The formula yielded opaque coverage that lasted for five hours on me, and it was hydrating while worn. Hourglass Inventor (P, $32.00) is brighter, cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Soft Berry (P, $37.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Finally Free (LE, $20.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Shiseido Red Queen (RD716) (DC, $28.00) is cooler (90% similar).

Shiseido Red Queen (RD716) Rouge Rouge Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a soft, medium-dark pinky-plum with warm undertones and a soft sheen. It is pinker (and cooler, as a result, but it still leaned warmer) compared to Rose Crush. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied with even, smooth coverage due to the lightweight, creamy (but not slippery!) consistency. This shade stayed on well for almost five hours and was moisturizing to wear. Chanel Rose Violine (P, $37.00) is warmer (95% similar). Hourglass Inventor (P, $32.00) is warmer (95% similar).

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Shiseido Rouge Rouge Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a vibrant, long-wearing, and hydrating lipstick available in 16 shades inspired by red. The pigmentation varied from semi-opaque to fully opaque with a lightweight, lightly creamy consistency that wasn’t too thin or too thick, so it sat well on the lips and made mine appear smoother. The colors applied evenly on the lips and didn’t drag as the texture is very smooth and emollient enough to have a soft sheen but not enough to slide around easily. The formula lasted anywhere from four to eight hours, which was nicely hydrating.

Wow, all gorgeous! It’s interesting how close Rose Crush and Red Queen are. Seems like Shiseido does these midtone colors really well, makes them very wearable but not boring at all. Rose Crush is on my must buy list !

Yeah, the range is definitely “wearable” if anything! I don’t think I’ll be expecting anything too out-of-the-box from Shiseido any time soon, but I hope they’ll expand the formula into some lighter and deeper shades.

Rose Crush and Red Queen look like exact dupes on my screen – strange that a brand would launch a new formula with two shades that are so similar – but it’s such a pretty color! I have to add it to my very long lipstick wish list!

Wow! Another perfect trio of lipsticks!
While I adore Bloodstone (may replace Rouge Tentation!), I am really digging Rose Crush and Red Queen! Both look so easily wearable for a more everyday type of lip shade. Especially Rose Crush! It and that Smashbox Safe Word and Nars Apoline all have my name written all over them. ?
Only my checking acc’t is complaining and weeping! ?

I love the sheen/pearl on these. Even the two that don’t have very obvious pearl, they seem to have a really fine shimmer.

I love seeing a brand I haven’t tried in ages putting out great new items. There are so many in their red lips to try, I look forward to my next visit to their counter.

Shiseido is seriously an underrated brand! I lovvveee their lipcolors, especially Perfect Rouge in Fuchsia RS320, that’s one of a kind shade! I know people love Shu Uemura’s curler, but Shiseido’s curler suits my asian eyes better.
Rose Crush is definitely on my wishlist!

All three sound and look like winners to me. I especially love Bloodstone for the subtle shimmer but the other two are great.

Wow, all three of these look great! After all the stellar reviews love got to try one, but the hard part is choosing! I’d get more use from a pinkish shade like rose crush or red queen, but bloodstone!! So pretty and the small amount of pearl would make it an easier red to apply & wear. (I think)
Lovely! Thank you Christine!

My two temptations from this line in one post — Red Queen and Bloodstone. [sigh] I was really hoping I had dupes. [double sigh]

How do you compare this with Charlotte Tilbury hot lips line? Do these have the same hydrating and long weare effect as Charlotte Tilbury?

The Hot Lips shades cover two formulas, and the Matte formula is quite different, whereas the cream formula is also much glossier and heavier than these.

They are beautiful, all three. I really like Bloodstone, I have dupes, but the finish is special, I think. I must swatch these, but I think Bloodstone is a must have.
