I’ve heard a lot about the Lacquer Rouges but only tried them out very recently. I have definitely been missing out!! I’ve tried SO many DEElightful products from Shiseido  and I added these right away to that list after trying them on! I got these in shades 305 and 501 .

Price

$30 CAD ( $25 USD)

Packaging

I generally like the Shiseido packaging, and this is no different.  It’s very “no-nonsense”, yet good looking packaging to me.

The applicators are very nice  as well  (you know I love a good doe foot wand applicator!):

Pigmentation

Like the name suggests, these go on like lacquers – like paint. They are opaque in one coat!

This is the shade 305:

This is shade 501:

 Texture

These are on thicker side, but they don’t feel uncomfortable by any means! They are on the moisturizing side, and they look nice and glossy which is great, considering their thicker consistency.

The texture looks pretty smooth I think, considering it’s quite a close up shot. You can kind of see my birthmark in one corner but this is with a light layer of the lipstick and I think that’s pigmented enough!

501 is so pretty ! :

Staying Power

The lighter  of the 2 shades (305) wore  very well on its own but faded quite a bit after a meal. 501 wore strong through eating, drinking and only faded slightly.

Verdict

deelight_kiss_1

Deep luster, intense colour ,creamy texture“- Shiseido did a pretty good job of describing these!! I really love these – I’m always on the hunt for good long wear lip colours that wont dry out my lips, and I’ve found that in these! The shine on these doesn’t fade as the day goes on either, which is great too!
