Shiseido Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer

When the makeup gods created perfect lipstick Shiseido Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer was on top of the creation list. There’s something so terribly appealing about a lipstick that glides on like melted butter and leaves behind glossy pigmented color that hydrates lips all through the wear.

Surely Shiseido Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer is divine!

Shiseido Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer in RD506 was recently introduced with the Spring 2013 Collection. I fell in love with this shade as it quite reminds me of Lipstick Queen Jean Queen Lipstick but a touch deeper. The shade is a warm dusky rose that looks very natural on my lips.

Shiseido Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer Swatches

Outside of loving the color Shiseido Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer has always been an outstanding product and sadly limited in shades. The standard catalog merely offers six colors of this ultra fabulous lipstick. We need more, we need more!

Don’t be frightened of the sheer in the name because the color pay off is excellent. We hear sheer and automatically assume it won’t be opaque. I think sheer would be in relation to the lighter formula and weightless feel of the product but not in the gorgeous full color it provides. This has excellent color pay off, always looks smooth, applies like butter, has a gorgeous glossy finish, hydrate lips through the wear, and looks so natural and beautiful!

Shiseido RD506 Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer

There is absolutely nothing else you could want in a lipstick. This is perfection.

You must pick one up or all six and the limited edition ones like RD506.

They are absolute must haves.

Available now on counter as well as at Sephora.com

    How the hell is that sheer?! Why do companies name things sheer when it’s practically opaque seriously. Grrrr *gets out power tools again* -.-!

  • phoebe

  • Peachy

    *adds to list of birthday haul must-haves* Yeah, I’m pretty sure hubby dearest is going to hate me 100% more the day after my birthday.

    It’ll be worth it, though.

      • Aditi

        Yay! Thank you. Btw just wanted to mention you’re one of my favorite bloggers ever, and I think you’re absolutely gorgeous!

        • the Muse

    • the Muse

  • Joy

    OMG that looks gorgeous on you!!! Stunning brightening effect! I WANT it. I MUST have it. I had a couple of lippies from this brand and I really like them. Thanks Musey <3

  • amy

    I love how “murky” this red is. I had a color fairly similar to this many, many years ago, that I received as a GWP. When I went to buy the full-size a little while later, it was nowhere to be found. It was HG, color *and* formula, which is a rare find. I’ll have to check this one out for sure!

    For some reason RD506 sounds so familiar. I think I may have received this as a deluxe something? Now I have to go home and look. IT’s really pretty.

    I have 1 SHiseido lippie and for the life of me I cannot remember the number but it’s one of those colors that if you wear it with pink it looks pink, coral? it looks coral, red, ditto… I swear it’s uncanny how it just goes with everything. I know, now you are going to ask if it goes with anything then why the heck isn’t it in my bag? LOL TOO MANY OTHER MUSE APPROVED SCHTUFF IN THERE! roflmao
    (and of course, thank you. LOL)

    I’ve been eyeing this lipstick for a while now. Reading your review has basically sealed the deal for me. I’m going to pick up one of these sometime soon!
