Shiseido Lip Rouge Lacquer

Hands up who has an unhealthy obsession for lip  products? *holds hand high in the air* Yes I thought as much!  The funny thing is, it's also my least worn product, go figure eh!

Anyway, I digress!  Today is a review of the Shiseido Lip Lacquer in OR508 Blaze (a lovely burnt orange colour)  :)

They say "Designed to fit lip contours perfectly, the slanted applicator ensures an easy application with a professional finish and clear outline plus the clever anti-bleed powders work with the product to control colour, allowing your look to remain flawless for the entire day."

hmm, can you tell I photographed this the same time as some of my other previous posts?  :)  The way to really tell, is my hair is up in those pics, my hair is rarely up!

My Thoughts

I really love the colour of this product, it's a stunning deep burnt orange colour with small amounts of sparkle added too.  It's easily blended to give a lighter effect, or applied thicker gives a much deeper darker look.  It lasts as well as any other high end (Chanel) lip lacquer I've used, which is a good couple of hours before needing a touch up.  It's such a lovely shade for Autumn too, it matches the colours of falling leaves :)  You can make it light enough to work with dark eye makeup too, or build it up for a look focussed on the lips.

Now the big question, would I buy it again... yes and no is the answer.  I probably wouldn't buy this shade again as I'm not sure it's perfect for my skin tone, but it is good to have a variety of shades in your collection for different looks/purposes.  Compared to the Chanel lip lacquer I have which is around the same price, I find the Chanel one much better quality, both the product and the packaging.  But that could be me being biased as you all know I love Chanel!

What's your favourite Shiseido product?
