Desert Quartz (RD124)

Shiseido Desert Quartz (RD124) Rouge Rouge Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a soft, medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation–nearly opaque coverage in a single layer–that applied evenly, but the more velvety texture had a tendency to slip into my lip lines. The consistency was smooth and comfortable to apply and to wear, though. It wore well for four hours and was lightly hydrating.

Curious Cassis (RD620)

Shiseido Curious Cassis (RD620) Rouge Rouge Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark burgundy red with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was richly pigmented and had a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was a smidgen more emollient compared to other shades in the formula (well, that were more matte). The lipstick glided across lips nicely and applied evenly. It wore well for five and a half hours and was lightly hydrating.

Cassis is stunning which is why I am pretty much duped out, LOL. I only have one Shiseido lipstick so would like to try more in the future. Looks like a good formula.

Duped to the gills for Curious Cassis. So, I was really hoping that a lighter pinky nude like Desert Quartz could work, but I doubt it would on my coloring. Then again, lipliner has made some work out that I thought weren’t quite right!

Oh how desperately I wish Sephora still carried these lipsticks! I would have picked up 1 or 2 more this sale season, I love this formula so much <3
