The Sultry Season: Shiseido Tawny (BR 735) Lipstick

Shiseido Tawny (BR 735) Perfect Rouge Lipstick ($25.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a warmed up caramel brown with a hint of coral. It’s semi-opaque and finishes with a noticeable glossiness.  I have always felt that Shiseido’s Perfect Rouge is rather under-appreciated, because it is such a flattering formula.

my thoughts on the formula: It’s moisturizing and applies evenly, while it wears for about four hours before beginning to fade. It is also scent- and taste-free. Perfect Rouge has a really beautiful color range and ranges from semi-opaque to opaque in color. The finish is a semi-gloss with very subtle micro-shimmer.

final thoughts: This is a beautiful shade for warmer skin tones; it is a color that works alone or paired with a brighter eye/cheek.

Oh man, that microshimmer brings it home! I’m going to have to swing by my local Shiseido counter, now! I’ve never tried their lipsticks before, but I’m always on the lookout for good lipstick formulas.

This is an amazing color. So very complimentary on you especially. Thanks for bringing this product to light. I rarely pay attention to Shiseido, but I will now!

Way back in the 90s Revlon had a lipstick called Coffee Bean that I just absolutely loved, and this reminds me of it slightly only this Tawny’s a lot shinier than the Coffee Bean and Coffee Bean was a lot more shimmery than this Tawny. I dropped revlon a lot after they kept the names of some colors but reformulated or changed and lightened up alot of their colors back in the Noughties (00s).

I’ve always thought Shiseido made some great lipsticks, I particularly love their red one. Their other makeup range and skincare is great too, although taking a flash picture with their foundation on can be a pretty scary look (intense white face!).

Bought PK 303 today, wears very nice, very moisturizing and it lasts quite oaky for such an moist formula. Darker colours last longer. They have just a tad of shine that looks natural. Love them. In germany they are also a few Euro cheaper then the rest.
