Shiseido Lacquer Rouge RD413

No comments :
This is a sample that I got with a code I used at Sephora online, but I had never heard of the product before so I figured it was worth a review! This is a liquid lip gloss/lipstick hybrid that surprised me a bit with the way it looks. Check it out ...

At first glance, the Shiseido Lacquer Rouge looks like a bright hot red, opaque lip color.
It has an average doe foot applicator.
Upon swatching, it does seem quite bright and pigmented:
However, when applied to the lips, it's just a sheer wash of color:
It is somewhat buildable, so there's that, but I wish that the color it is on my hand transferred to my lips because it's gorgeous and bright! It's less than exciting once applied. It doesn't have a scent to it at all. It feels very comfortable on the lips, not sticky or anything, and wears for a few hours. Now it's labeled as a liquid lipstick, but to me it's more of a gloss in the way it performs. I thought it would have a bit of staining power to it, but it doesn't have that either. It's sort of a letdown for something that is $25 for the full size. If you like sheer lip colors then this is right up your alley, but I couldn't see paying that much for something that's essentially a sheer gloss.
