You know what i love about bright lipsticks?

That even when its 9 :00 am, and you are scrambling to eat your fried egg,  getting ready for work, checking emails, handling random maid queries of which of your tops is expected to leak color , or what type of rice you want her to make (Seriously, i thought there is just one type) and sneaking in a blog post somewhere while trying to kiss the boy good bye, you still find a moment to stop in front of the mirror, pout , smile , flip your hair and feel glam. Wait what? Im the only one who does that? No wonder the maid looks at me like im an alien- i thought it was standard bright lipstick procedure no?!!!

Standard or not, the Shiseido Perfect Rouge Lipstick will definitely make you stop in your tracks. For me, this is  the PERFECT color!!! Its an incredibly hard shade to describe and that’s why this review is delayed. A coral-red is the best way to describe it. It looks a lot more coral in the pictures, but in actual life it is what a nice, non-neon red with a touch of coral would look like. Think of coral reef pictures you may have seen and focus on the red coral reef in it. This is that in lipstick form! Its a great color for my skintone, and even deeper skin tones i think. Its a tad bit similar Colorbar Take Me as i Am Lip color  in Flirtatious Pink, and Mac Hot Tahiti lipstick, but none of them are close dupes.

In terms of texture, these Shiseido Lipsticks are the most creamy and luxuriously rich lipsticks iv tested. One swipe of these and your lips are enveloped in rich, luscious creamy color! Super Pigmented, so even if you have very dark lips, these will hide any discolorations,   they are also moisturizing and last for an average amount of 4-5 hours on me. If i had to nitpick i would say that because these are creamy, they dont particularly feel lightweight on the lips, which don’t make them the ideal summer lipstick. But that aside, these are top quality girls!

Its a tad bit more red than it looks in this photo

See how puffy  and red my eyes look? You guys have a solution to this?

Verdict: A

Price: Rs 1550/-

Recommendation: The Shiseido Perfect Rouge Lipstick 142 is a stunning coral red that really flatters my skintone, and will look great as a bright lipstick on deeper skin tones as well. The Warm, reddish tones really works with indian skin! These lipsticks are incredibly rich and creamy, super pigmented and moisturizing, though not really lightweight!
