Shiseido Shimmering Rouge Lipstick (Sample) - RS308 - Iron Maiden

Shiseido RS308 Shimmering Rouge Lipstick Iron Maiden - Swatch, FOTD

I love Shiseido skincare - the Pureness Matifying Moisturizer is my favorite for summers in India - but I haven't had much experience with any of the makeup.  A friendly SA at Macy's Shiseido counter gave me these samples a long time back, but for some reason I never bothered using them until now.  Okay, it's not some reason - I just didn't think there were any good :-|  Except they are awesome!  The lipstick I have tried on today is from Shiseido's Shimmering Rouge range - RS308 (Iron Maiden).  It's a vibrant fuchsia-purple color with fine silver shimmer mixed in.  The formula is sheer and moisturizing, and the scary-looking color translates to a bright wash of color on the lips.

I never thought I would ever like a "purple" lipstick, but I really do like this.  The lipstick feels so light and comfortable on the lips, and despite being sheer, it stays around on my lips quite a long time, fading to a lovely stain as the day wears on.  Me love :D

  1. I have head a lot about Shiseido Lipsticks and have tried a few at the counters too. The formula is amazing as you have said but it costs almost double the cost of MAC lippies here !!!!

    2. True Rads, I felt the quality was much better too ! As beauty bloggers I feel it is our duty to bring such lipsticks to limelight than just sticking on to one particular brand and you are doing the job really well :)
