At the recent United Bamboo Spring 2012 runway show, small Shiseido boxes filled with Shiseido goodies were given to guests. I was lucky enough to receive a box and of the Shiseido goodies was this super cute deluxe sample of Shiseido’s Perfect Rouge Lipstick in Gilded Wine (RS612). Although it was just a deluxe sample, I had to take a photo of it (pictured above) because it’s just really cute looking!
Here it is on my lips:
As you can see Gilded Wine somewhat lives up to its name. It’s definitely a merlot color, perfect for the Fall but ‘gilded’ it is not. There’s no golden sparkle to it at all, it’s just a wine colored lipstick. Here’s the requisite full face shot with the lipstick on:
The lipstick was creamy, not matte and super moisturizing. It stayed put a good 4 hours before I had to think of retouching! Perfect Rouge it is indeed, I have to say. It is a bit on the pricey side at $25 USD, but unless you’ve found a good creamy lipstick that doesn’t dry out and lasts most of the day — I’d say it’s your best bet. Overall, I’d recommend Perfect Rouge for anyone looking for a nice creamy, luxurious feeling lipstick.
