Shiseido Spring 2010 Glowing Matte and Tender Sheer lipsticks applied
I was given a lipstick sample card with some of the new Spring colours when I visited the Shiseido counter earlier this week, and I thought it might be useful to post some pictures of the colours applied.
Glowing Matte PK 224, a pale coral pink.
Glowing Matte RD 722 - it's odd to me that this is labelled as a RD, it's more of a PK to me. It's a nude slightly greyed pink to my eye.
Tender Sheer RS 326, a glossy cool rose.
You can definitely see the difference between the two textures. I do love the slightly glossier texture of the Tender Sheer (I will be looking out for the red and the plum in this formulation when it launches over here.) I admire the formulation of the Glowing Matte - it's a semi-transparent matte formula, but it doesn't feel drying, even on my winter dry lips; it has a waxy-silicone feeling, much like a primer for the skin. I don't love the colour of RD722 on me personally, but it'd be brilliant for anyone looking for that matte nude lip look without causing cat-bottom puckered lip dryness.
