Shiseido Maquillage Essence Glamorous Rouge is available in a few new shades for Spring 2013 so I quickly snatched up one (even though I was tempted to get them all).
Maquillage is one of the sub-brands that’s part of Shiseido in Japan. Such a shame its never made its way to the US.
The appealing aspect of Essence Glamorous Rouge was the colors were inspired by natural lip colors and tone so it gives you that “your lips but better” finish.
Take a look!
One of the four new shades I purchased was RD396. RD is a little misleading as I assumed it would be berry or red based but actually it is more of a peachy beige. That’s quite alright by me as the color is truly gorgeous and very natural! The color is comparable to something you’d see Kim K sporting as its that nude, natural lip look she favors.
I said it before and I’ll say it again Maquillage did an incredible job with these glosses!
The gloss comes in a diamond shaped tube which is quite pretty yet practical enough to travel with you. It has a softer larger flexible sponge applicator that fits the contour of my lips comfortably. The sponge saturates very well with product and a single dip is enough to do your entire lip look.
The formula is moisturizing yet lightweight without any stickiness or tackiness. It wears a solid four to five hours without migrating or drying out and color stays true through that wear. It has a shiny finish and give lips a soft cushion-y appearance
I wish I could afford to own every single shade as I love what they do for my lips, the colors are all so natural and pretty (they are a little pricey when purchased off sale at around $30 each at a variety of online shops, OUCH!)!
Shiseido Maquillage Essence Glamorous Rouge is available for purchase at Adambeauty.com (not affilated) and very Muse Approved for purchase.
