I have mentioned in my last Shiseido lipstick review that I found their whole range to have very high quality with two major downfalls: The brighter colors tend to look oddly "off" on me (extra bright and garish) while the subdued colors are just plain boring.
Today, let me show you another one of their Perfect Rouge, belonging to the latter group.
RD732 Blush is a creamy brownish rose. Even though this has a creamy (white instead of my prefered clear) base, the texture is very smooth and hugs onto lips with zero chalky finish.
The color is Beautiful and grown up. It doesn't do much to my skin, beside looking a bit middle age corporate lady.
You know when you find the right lipstick, it would light up your face? Well, it's funny that none of the Shiseido lipsticks does that for me. Their eyeshadow are totally weird on me as well but that's a different story.
The color of.Blush actually is still a notch lighter than my natural lip color so it looks milky rose on me. It's very polished and clean look that I don't normally go for. While the slight shine doesn't stay, it settles into satin matte finish that's still intact (doesn't turn into a thin film) and light weight.
I actually love the formula a lot that I occasionally put it on just as a lip balm. I just never wore it out in broad daylight.
Verdict: Well. This didn't change my impression of the brand, maybe the next one will. Well, I am going back to Kanebo for now.
