Day 9 of the 30 lipsticks in 30 days project features my favourite Japanese brand of all time, T’estimo! Its been discontinued – boo hoo! – but it can still be found online and at warehouse clearances if you look!
T’estimo Serumdrape Rouge Lipstick – RS-121
RS-121 is my first Serumdrape Rouge which came all the way from Japan and I loved it so much and used it so much, I was horrified to discover that it was almost half gone! So I quickly had to get another – why not?! 😛
The texture of T’estimo Serumdrape Rouge lipsticks are very smooth but sheer and glossy and shimmery. If you like pigmented lipsticks, you’d scoff at these, but Oh I love them so! And so do most people I’ve gifted them to 😉
The packaging is a simple pearly white tube with a “glitter” ring around the middle. The picture shows RS121 swiped about 2 times on my lips.
I usually go for darker shades because they will at least show up with some colour on my pigmented lips. If I go for light shades or pinks, all I’ll get is shine and shimmer with hardly any color. Hence in my collection you will only see RS (Rose) or RD (Red) shades. They end up “My Lips but Better”! I’ve got a whole bunch of T’estimo lipsticks in various textures and colours and I’m hoarding them all 😀
Yes I know I shouldn’t be tempting you with these since they are discontinued, but I just had to feature them because nothing gets between me and my T’estimo Serumdrape Rouge lippie! 🙂
Here’s a funny story. The day I got this one from Japan, I thought I threw it out with the rest of the trash. I spent a happy hour rushing to the bin to retrive my trash and sorted through it carefully but did not find it. 2 days later it was found … under my sofa. Its never gone missing since!
We move on to something Western with Giorgio Armani cosmetics in Day 10 tomorrow!
