Shiseido Rouge Rouge Lipstick
Shiseido Rouge Rouge Lipstick

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.

Shiseido Liaison (RD306) Rouge Rouge Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark coral-red with warm undertones and a soft, lightly shimmery sheen. It had nearly opaque color payoff that applied with smooth, even coverage. The consistency was lightly emollient, so it glided on the lips easily and felt comfortable to wear over the five hours it lasted. The formula was hydrating overall.

Shiseido Coral Shore (RD309) Rouge Rouge Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a slightly brighter, medium peony pink with warm, yellow undertones and a soft sheen. There is very pearl that gives it a more luminous finish, but it isn’t overly glossy, which likely contributes to the better wear time (almost five hours). The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and featherweight on the lips. It was comfortable to wear and hydrating while worn. Bobbi Brown Pink Peony (P, $24.00) is darker (95% similar).

Shiseido Ruby Copper (RD501) Rouge Rouge Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark ruby red with cool, blue undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that covered evenly and smoothly. The texture was very lightweight, smooth and creamy without being heavy, and comfortable on the lips.

Oh my goodness, SO many great lippies this year! Putting Liason & Coral Shore on my wish list, which needs to be narrowed down. I normally have trouble wearing pinky reds and coral pinks, but Shiseido seems to make them wearable for me–just warm enough to not clash with my yellow undertones and enough pigment not to wash me out. So I see several Shiseido lipstick purchases in my near future

Stunning!
I’m not someone who like corals in general but I really . Maybe because they are more “muted”/”tamed” corals?
If all 16 shades perform perfectly it will be difficult to just pic a few.
Out of the three, I would go for Rubby Coper first… but more because I would have an immediate use for it by the time it reaches European counters! I can see myself using Coral Shore in spring! (See how I already start planning hypothetical buys lol!)

Liaison looks like nothing else I own, plus it has a daytime softly sexy look to it that I would love wearing!
And I do believe that Ruby Copper will probably be giving Rouge Tentation, which I love, a serious run for my $’s. A very unexpected surprise!

What is it about these reds coming out for fall? They look luscious. So glad they’re scoring well. There’s nothing worse than a patchy red — looks horrendous. But these new ones, from a ton of different lines, look so creamy and wonderful!!! Cheers for the new reds!

It looks like a lovely formula, but all the colors seem a bit same-y to me. I wish the shade range was a little more… interesting.

I love Liaison & Coral Shore. I am surprised how much I love Coral Shore being it is very light but it looks beautiful on you. It is nice to see them get a great review. I like the fact that they are moisturizing and only $28.

I never think of Shiseido for makeup but would love to add a lipstick or two from this line. Look forward to seeing more!

P.S. That Clairins eye shadow palette is just so flattering on you!!

Oh wow, these are all so beautiful! I read somewhere that Dick Page said Ruby Copper is one of the most universally wearable shades of the bunch, so I might give it a try. I have a hard time pulling off a red lip but I so want to!! Liaison also looks right up my alley 🙂

I picked up Liaison yesterday at the Bay, and oh my gosh, it’s INCREDIBLE. I’ve never really considered Shiseido before, somehow my eyes always just passed the makeup counter by, so thank you so much for bringing these to my attention! So quick and easy to apply, looks and feels amazing, and sure the colours are ‘safe’ but to me that just means a well-used and enjoyed stash staple.
