Shiseido Perfect Rouge Lipstick RD 553 Showgirl review, photos, swatches

Ho-lee mo-lee this lipstick is nothing short of showstopping!  Being a relative newbie to Shiseido, I've been playing around with some of their products recently and this beaut took my breath away when I applied it.   Housed in sleek black packaging, the Perfect Rouge lipsticks provide moisture and colour like no other lippie I've ever tried.

One of ten new shades of the Perfect Rouge lipsticks launching this autumn, Shade RD553 Showgirl from Shiseido is a delicious tomato red lipstick that is quite possibly the creamiest, most pigmented lipsticks ever to adorn my lips.  You know I'm a leedle bit scared of bright lipsticks, but this one is too beautiful not to wear and I even wore it in my beauty confessions video last week where I'd lots of questions about it!

A shade like this isn't for the faint hearted, but is this not the most gorgeous shade of red?  Perfect for autumn and winter n'est pas?  I've worn this a few times since getting it and find it so comfortable to wear.  It doesn't dry out my lips or cake to any dry patches and really does feel like more than a regular lipstick when it's on.  With all red lipsticks, using a lipliner will help prevent any bleeding and this guy stays put for a good 4 hours.

I'm telling you now, I'll be picking up a couple more of these guys when they launch on September 2nd and they're well worth the €25 price tag.  Do what I tell you and when they launch, go to your Shiseido counter and try these on.

Lads, I think we're talking Holy Grail lipsticks here and a possible contender for Top 13 products of 2013....  I know... That's huge!

Do we like Showgirl?  And should we start calling me Lola?

      sorry for the delay in replying, had crazy week getting my daughter ready to start primary school tomorrow morning. Hope your weekend was brilliant!

  5. Waaaaant. Looks amazing on you!

  6. I think it's a perfect autumn colour - but great all year round!

  7. Gorgeous color on you: perks up your face and complements your coloring beautifully without looking "loud". Shiseido makes the best lipsticks for the money, in my opinion; they're a far better value than lipsticks that are almost twice as much *cough* Tom Ford.
