Shiseido Crime of Passion (RD311) Rouge Rouge Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a bright, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and very fine, golden pearl. It had good pigmentation that covered the lips with even color. The texture on this shade was slightly thicker and more emollient than other shades in the range, but it didn’t slide around or wear too quickly–but it was more moisturizing than other shades. The color stayed on well for four and a half hours on me. MAC Watch Me Simmer (LE, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Testosterone (LE, $20.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Shiseido Poppy (RD312) Rouge Rouge Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark red with neutral-to-cool undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque color payoff, which covered the lips evenly and didn’t settle into lip lines. The texture was lightweight, thin without being clingy, and easy to apply. This shade wore for eight hours, was lightly hydrating, and didn’t feather or bleed past my lips. MAC Yoni Crush (LE, $20.00)(95% similar). Make Up For Ever C404 (P, $22.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Shiseido Real Ruby (RD502) Rouge Rouge Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark red with warm, brownish undertones and a fine pearl.

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.

Not a dud in here! This year, I feel like if a lipstick doesn’t score an A, I can pass unless it’s a unique color that’s hard to dupe

I love how Shiseido is going an entire collection of reds. It’s amazing how many nuances of red there are! I’m trying to figure out which one to try first! They all seem to be performing exceeding well on your testing.

Mind blown at the beauty of these. Again, all 3 are thoroughly stunning. The fave here of mine has got to be Crime Of Passion; a dupe of MAC Watch Me Simmer, which I had wanted way back!
But; I’m also thrilled at Poppy being a pretty close dupe of Maria Moretti! Although by the time I use up that tube, this lipstick may no longer be around either.

I really like Real Ruby. I just received RD 307 First Bite which is really pretty a little bright from what I am use to but even at my age I’m lucky to still have full lips so I think I can pull it off just takes a little getting use to.

This seems to be a great formula. And some of the reds are gorgeous. Maybe, bec I just threw out some. I need red lipstick like I need fleas.

It is! What I like most is that it is pretty consistent. Perhaps the “downfall” is they are not 110% opaque at all times, but I gather that won’t be a deal-breaker for most.

I was going to say I love Real Ruby, then I saw UD Mrs. Mia Wallace is a dupe. That’s one of my favorite reds, so no wonder I like Real Ruby so much.

All lovely again, they are really doing well with this formula. I have two dupes for Poppy which was my favorite of the trio. When they run out I’ll consider getting this instead.
