The Shiseido Shimmering Rouge range of sheer lipsticks promise brilliant color, fuller lips with long lasting hydration. I bought this lipstick in the shade OR405 – its called “Sizzle”. This shade is a beautiful sheer bright peachy orange with silver shimmer. This lipstick instantly brightens up the face giving it a fresh look. I remember I had first tried this lipstick when I was at a Shiseido counter at an airport. I hadn’t slept and I felt miserable. I was in fact dreading looking at myself in the mirror but I felt so nice when I tried this lipstick on that I had to get it…right then. As luck would have it, the lady at the counter told me that she had a tester but didn’t have this lipstick in stock. I was back to my miserable self. Couldn’t do much but this lipstick kept haunting me. I wanted it so badly (I know you are now beginning to think I’m obsessive). I kept trying my luck and finally after 5 days, I found it at a Shiseido counter! So till now, I was just fascinated by the color, once I got the lipstick, I loved the texture and the feel too.
It is quite hydrating and doesn’t accentuate the dryness on the lips. The finish is glossy. Actually this lipstick feels somewhat like a lip gloss. It does plump up the lips a bit. I felt my lips looked fuller with this lipstick on. It isn’t a long wearing lipstick though. It lasts for about 4 hours on me.
I love the packaging. The metallic case looks very modern and classy. The packaging is travel friendly too – I haven’t had any instance of the lipstick case accidentally opening in my purse.
If you want a lipstick that’s sheer yet bright, shimmery, glossy, feels light on the lips, makes the lips look fuller and hydrates them, all at once then go for this one!
