I was surprised to see that Shiseido The Makeup didn’t come out with a new eyeshadow quad as it usually does in every season, but after seeing what is being launched, my excitement is just the same! I have long been a big fan of Shiseido The Makeup lipsticks. I have been using them for more than 8 years and that is most of my adult life! I always find that Shiseido’s lipsticks are so light and yet moisturizing, even after you take them off, your lips still feel moist, and yet when you have them on, you don’t feel a thing.

The promotional slogan is just as catchy: A New Lipstick, A New Beginning. The original version is already very good, so I am anxious to see the upgrade. While I find the old version limited in color selection, the new Perfect Rouge comes in 20 shades, in a good mix of reds, neutrals, pinks and browns (plus 1 orange).

The new shades are supposedly created by Shiseido after analyzing the many different skin tones of women all over the world. Also in the new collection is Smoothing Lip Pencil that comes in 7 shades, from beiges (neutral), pinks, reds to browns.
