Shiseido recently unveiled a new formula of lipstick, called Rouge Parfait — or Perfect Rouge. The lipstick is supposed to be moisturizing and long-lasting, and all 20 shades were created by Shiseido’s Artistic Director, Dick Page.
These lipsticks come in an abstracted-clover-shaped case (which might be a little bulky) and have no scent. My favorite shade was BE208, Baby, but that’s mostly indicative of what kind of springy shades I’m in the mood for right now. And I finally figured out Shiseido’s naming system: RD is red, PK is pink, BE is beige, OR is orange, RS is rose, etc.
Perfect Rouge lipsticks are $25 each. They are medium-to-full coverage, and I found their wear-time and moisture to be good, but not the best. (That honor is still held by Chanel Rouge Allure, Clinique High Impact Lipstick, and CoverGirl TruShine.)
