For some reason, I have a lot of new lipsticks at the moment. This Shimmering Rouge lipstick in Pink Champagne PK 311 by Shiseido is a favorite, though.
The shade is a warm pink with some really fine (I can only see it in my macro photos) golden shimmer. This is a truly flattering color, which is not “a statement” or “bold”, but is simply nice and pleasant for the eye.
The packaging is nice too. It’s sleek and stylish, with a sturdy feel. The cap closes with a satisfying click.
Here I tried to catch this shade on the lips:
When you apply it, it almost feels like a lip balm, moisturising and soft. The finish is opaque, and the color is buildable.
This kind of lipstick is really nice to have around on the days when you want to look put together yet effortless, but don’t feel like spending hours in front of the mirror.
