Review: Shiseido Lacquer Gloss

For today, I will be giving a review on a lip product that I got during the Sip & See of Shiseido’s SS2014 Collection: the Shiseido Lacquer Gloss. 😀

Product Description (printed on the box of the product):

Product Description (taken from the Shiseido website):

Lip Gloss inspired by traditional Japanese transparent lacquer.

Sheen with a complex transparency, as though multiple layers have been applied.
Creates beautiful lips with appealing, clear color and a dewy smooth feel.

I was able to get two shades of the Shiseido Lacquer Gloss: PK304 and RS306. 😀

Here is the product applicator. I like that the applicator bends when you use it so you could easily glide the gloss on your lips.

The Shiseido Lacquer Gloss in PK304 has a pinkish nude shade whereas the RS306 shade has a much richer rosy plum color. However, PK304 has more shimmer in it as compared to RS306.

Here are the swatches for each shade:

The current scorching heat can really dry up our lips that even water is not enough to keep it hydrated throughout the day. True enough, the Shiseido Lacquer Gloss can moisturize dry lips. When I get dry lips, I just use this product. After a few hours, my lips becomes soft and smooth again. No lip balm needed. It could heal the dry parts of your lips and at the same time, it can instantly give a nice color on your lips. 😉 I like that this gloss can also last for hours and gives a perfect smooth finish.

This has been awarded by Oprah as the Absolute Glossiest Gloss during the 2014 Spring Makeup O-wards: The Standouts of the Season

The Shiseido Lacquer Gloss is priced at Php1,250.
