Shiseido Lacquer Rouge RD 607 Nocturne + FOTD

Friday, January 31, 2014
 Happy New Year, fellow Chinese and Lunar year celebrators!

I felt well enough today for the first time in a few weeks to don a full face of makeup. I missed it. Not so much covering up imperfections, but the ritual itself of picking up brushes, gently drawing liner and lightly dusting powder.

Shiseido Lacquer Rouge RD 607 Nocturne, my first Shiseido lip product. I have a deluxe mini tube and it is wonderful! Not for the faint of heart, this color is intense. A cool dark red, leaning a bit almost brick red. It's saturated and very striking. In the tube, I can see faint subtle sparkle but luckily it doesn't really show on the lips, other than enhancing shine. Admittedly, I'd be happier if it were completely creme without sparkle, just my preference. The formula is fragrance free (this fills me with joy) and a bit sticky.

I also found Nocturne to be quite long wearing. This shade didn't really feather and bleed when applied straight to my lips without any liner. It also felt quite moisturizing. I'm really happy with this liquid lipstick, it has all the aspects I prefer; moisturizing, rich pigmentation, long wearing and also non bleeding. In other words, near perfection.

I'm also wearing:

Brows: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Duo in Granite
Face: Dolce & Gabbana Luminous The Foundation, NARS Light Reflecting Powder, Chanel Notorious
Eyes: Rock & Republic Fatalistic and Fuel, Femme Fatale Eyeliner Sealer, Andrea Lashes #33

I tried to do a red/gold thing for Chinese New Year but Nocturne was so beautiful, I didn't want to take away from the intensity. So I dabbed a bit of yellow gold shadow under my lower lash line, sketched some winged eyeliner on and called it a day.
