New! Shiseido Radiant Lifting Foundation and Lacquer Rouge Liquid Lipstick Preview

Ever notice how makeup goes through cyclical phases? There was the lipbalm – lipstick phase a while ago which is great, if you ask me because it soon brought many non lipstick lovers over to the dark side icon wink New! Shiseido Radiant Lifting Foundation and Lacquer Rouge Liquid Lipstick Preview Then there was the cream shadow phase where many brands rode that bandwagon, some with more success than others. This year, we have the liquid foundation and liquid lipstick phase hitting us… right about … now! Its a cycle though – liquid lipstick was the rage quite a few years ago (Dior had one which is now discontinued – excellent texture and I went through at least 3! But I can’t recall the name now; and Chanel has also discontinued their Rouge Allure Lacque – same concept)

But, Shiseido is making sure they are right on the ball by launching 2 new permanent items to their makeup range – a new liquid foundation and  a new liquid lipstick! Whee!

The first is a liquid lipstick – Lacquer Rouge – which is inspired by Japanese Lacquerware. Have you ever seen the lovely smooth, burnished surfaces of lacquerware with their deep vibrant colours contrasted with black? This is the imagery we are given with Shseido’s offering and this is what the new lipstick promises. The texture of this liquid lipstick is supposed to leave your lips smooth, glossy and with intense colour like they’ve been lacquered. Wow! Wouldn’t that be something! icon smile New! Shiseido Radiant Lifting Foundation and Lacquer Rouge Liquid Lipstick Preview

Here is a blurry swatch I took in terribly dim lighting conditions of 3 colour families of the Lacquer Rouge.

The 3 colour families I chose were (from left to right) RS (Rose), PK (Pink) and RD (Red). The texture is smooth and it applies opaque. A proper review will come in time, not to worry. Dim lighting really sucks for product/swatch photography but I hope you get the idea icon razz New! Shiseido Radiant Lifting Foundation and Lacquer Rouge Liquid Lipstick Preview

The other new and permanent item is the Radiant Lifting Foundation which is a full coverage liquid foundation that feels light on skin and has skin firming and anti-wrinkle properties.

The foundation is supposed to infuse skin with light which emanates a youthful glow to the skin while softly diffusing lines. The coverage is stated as full and the texture is a little lighter than the Perfect Refining foundation which feels creamier.

The colour selection is relatively wide. I was told that the foundation shade may not match what you presently are using in Shiseido foundations which is a little odd. Still, I take I00 (Very Light Ivory) in Perfect Refining so I took the same in this version. My first experience was a little disastrous but I’m experimenting with it a little more to try to get a handle on it. I’ll bring my report as soon as I can but you don’t have to worry – these are permanent icon smile New! Shiseido Radiant Lifting Foundation and Lacquer Rouge Liquid Lipstick Preview

You should see both products popping up at a Shiseido counter near you from now, so you can quite easily check them out for yourselves. I have a new found fascination for liquid foundations (so many to look forward to in the coming months!) and naturally, the liquid lipstick is also calling for my attention (at least one other brand is tugging on my wallet too!) so it looks like an expensive few months for me icon wink New! Shiseido Radiant Lifting Foundation and Lacquer Rouge Liquid Lipstick Preview

Does either product catch your eye? How do you feel about liquid lipstick?

Liquid lipstick isn’t quite the same as lipgloss, if you are wondering. It is usually much more pigmented and the colour is brighter and it lasts longer on lips. I will take requests so the item that has the most requests will get top billing for review – let me know which it will be! icon wink New!

Eeeek! The liquid lipsticks are just….

Dear PB, my brother has waited a full year for this video game release… Why do you always tempt me into spoiling a kid’s expectations/Xmas and Birthday wishlist??

Never mind… I’ll wait for the review, then I’ll decide heh heh heh ^.^

I picked up a Guerlain one! :D I didn’t realize they were matte though so I’m slowly feeling my way around that. Super long staying power though.

Can’t wait for your review! So far, I quite like the lacquer rouge in RD607. I was lucky to be able to buy it because the SA told me they were sent limited quantities. Haven’t seen the foundation yet, and I’d love to try it! Maybe I’ll ask for a sample before buying… perhaps you could review the foundation first?

Time to dig that one out and use it! I think they’ve discontinued the range, or was it just certain colours? I can’t remember anymore – so hard to keep up! :P

Jacqueline August 25, 2012 at 10:20 am

I love liquid lipsticks. I picked up Blaze, the range shade but I’m not totally in love with the formula. It didn’t apply as opaque as I thought it would. I prefer MUFE’s Aqua Rouge and the old Chanel Allure Lacque better. I am keen to find out what you think of the foundation though.

I have heard that the MUFE Aqua Rouge is quite something. The Guerlain one isn’t bad either except I didn’t know it was matte! I might make a start on the foundation then. Its taking me a while to make up my mind about it :P

still, looking forward to your reviews!
is the new liquid lipstick drying on lips? the prev time i tried their two ways(forgot the name), it has gorgeous colour but too drying on me

Yup, this one is targeted at more matured skin, I feel so that might be why the price is such :) I find liquid lipstick in general less forgiving on dry and lined lips, based on previous experience. But we’ll see. There are 2 out that I know of and it’ll be interesting to see how they fare! :D

Why must the lip colors look so tempting?!?!?! Ahhhhh… I don’t wanna spend more money BUT! I’m afraid I cannot resist. Please do tell how good the lipstick is. I’m also looking forward to your review on the liquid foundation. I’m all in for liquid foundation. Never liked the idea of 2-way cake. Do tell if it’s good for ppl with oily complexion. Thanks Paris! ^^

The lipstick colours are very lovely, that much I will admit. I am still feeling my way around both products so my reviews will go up as soon as possible :) As a preliminary observation, I think the liquid foundation may not be as suitable for someone with oily skin but as I said, I’m still feeling my way around it :)

Jyoan August 25, 2012 at 4:14 pm

I love the liquid lipstick so far!

I have it in RS312. I think it’s called Sandstone. One of those Asian exclusive colour.

I am so tempted to get the other two Asian exclusives, because they are so nice!

I saw the Lacquer Rouge the other day, but not the foundation. To be fair though, I might not have noticed the foundation since that’s not something I tend to experiment with too easily.

I don’t own a liquid lipstick yet, but I’m eyeing Guerlain Gourmandise (got Gracy Rouge G and couldn’t help but played with that one a little… BIG mistake if you ask me LOL). There are SO many of them popping up this season!

I have no love for liquid “lipsticks”. Find them too much of a hassle to apply. :P

As of 2 weeks ago, I suddenly have a craving for everything “light reflecting”, especially NARS’s new skincare range. Don’t ask me why. :P
And now this Shieseido foundation definitely caught my attention too. Do let us know how the application/experience went. :)

Now what you mention it, I seemed to like quite a bit of their stuff.

Thank you for this post today, Paris! I detest liquid lipsticks: they’re too messy for my mature lips/mouth- I am much happier with a controllable lipstick, any brand will do nearly. Look forward to your review of this foundation as my curiosity re Shieseido make up has become intense recently- can’t wait to hear what you have to say (no pressure). xoxo Beth in Pgh ;-)

Hi Beth! Liquid lipsticks can be very unforgiving and my previous experience taught me that it is also very drying. So, I’m hoping that these new versions have addressed that :) I will bring my thoughts on the foundation soon. I think it is more targeted to slightly more matured skin to be honest so the young ones can breathe a sigh of relief ;)

I have this new liquid foundation on hand, at first it felt like a bit thick n needs some work but i found the trick and that is u just need to use a one small pump at a time.Usually half a pump is sufficient for my whole face, and love the glow that it imparts & i felt that the glow does last for quite some time. Hope u will be able to like it like i do ;-)

Ah I felt the same way Samantha! It felt thick the first time I used it and like you, I think I used too much. I also found it oxidised a little on my skin -did you experience that?

Samantha August 28, 2012 at 10:49 pm

Luckily i didnt exp that, maybe the SA was smart to notice i have olive tan skin, she pick the colour which is a little bit fairer

I like all 3 colours! They look really gorgeous :) Btw I picked up the last Revlon Lip Butter in Sweet Tart at Guardian in Midvalley yesterday. Love the colour, and the moment I saw it was the last one, I headed for the cashier counter pronto!

Oh, I played around with some SimplySiti lipsticks and I was surprised at the amazing colour payoff! Some of the colours are really eye-popping, though I was put off by some of the cheap looking packaging :P

I don’t know if there’s a “best” Joanna, because these things depend on personal preference. Liquid lipstick is sometimes drying but I’m waiting to see if these new versions are more hydrating. I don’t know of a cheaper version as of now. Many drugstore/pharmacy brands aren’t bringing out any yet.

Is it drying to the lips? Lipstick or liquid lipstick?
