Texture Play

With matte lips and nail polishes dominating the runways and magazine editorials, it’s about time beauty brands gave in to their consumers’ requests. And with Shiseido’s successful line of Perfect Rouge lipsticks launched last year, its Artistic Director, Dick Page, introduces eight additional shades for all us lipstick lovers.

Two new varieties, each with four new colors, are sure to excite you as they did for me—Glowing Matte and Tender Sheer. Glowing Matte, obviously, is my recommended choice. Page explains: “For Glowing Matte, my inspiration was softness, smoothness, and a delicate, lightweight veil of color.” Unlike the matte lipsticks of the ‘90s, these slickers come in semi-transparent color, and are formulated with Shiseido’s exclusive Smoothing Matte Powder. It doesn’t leave your lips dry, since it has intense moisturizing properties. Hence, the look of sheer matte is achieved, with minimized appearance of lip lines, too.

Left: Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer lipsticks in pout, tender, natural wine and natural red.
Right: Perfect Rouge Glowing Matte lipsticks in sugarbabe, natural beige, wink and coral glow.
On the side: I love the packaging of both lines. The black matte cases for the matte lipsticks are so sleek!

For those who prefer to stay on the safe side, Tender Sheer is for you. Though light and glossy, it’s highly pigmented to give your lips just the right tint. It has a dewy finish that keeps your puckers moist all day keeps flaked and chapped lips at bay. Both lip ranges have Super Hydro-Wrap Vitalizing DE that locks in moisture, and keeps it from evaporating. So your lips stay fresh and moisturized all day long.

Other new releases include eight shades of lip gloss, six colors of blushes, five satin eye colors, and sheer matifying compact.

*Shiseido is available at Rustan’s, Greenbelt 5, and Power Plant Mall.
