Today is all about lips and new lip products from the brand Shiseido!
I will start with the new gloss formula called the Shimmer Gel Gloss!
Shimmer Gel Gloss
This is a highly reflective gloss with a transparent colour that offers a mirror-like crystalline finish. It claims to provide 12 hour of hydration, is weightless and non sticky. It is available in 10 colors.
This gloss actually combines a glossy gel with a cushiony gel. This combo is a perfect match between comfort and a beautiful finish, i.e. a mirror-like shine.
The formula is also infused with shea butter to bring moisture to the lips and smooth them. In that sense, even if your lips are dry, this gloss is totally forgiving.
It also contains reflective pearls and highly refractive oils that deliver a crystalline finish that will not feather or bleed.
The lips feel smooth, conditioned, and glossy.
The packaging is also interesting. The gloss is housed in a hard plastic shell. It’s not a traditional squeezable tube. Here the plastic parts are hard to the touch, it feels sturdy and more luxurious than a normal squeezable tube.
LipLiner Ink Duo – Prime + Line
Another new lip product that I find very interesting is the new lipliner ink duo!
This is a two-in-one lip product that contains on one end a primer and on the other one a lip pencil.
They are available in 12 vibrant colors.
The primer has a balm texture that is quite similar to Mac lip primer. The lip primer is very precise with its fine tip. The texture is creamy enough to glide on the lips but not too emollient to smudge. This is the perfect travel companion! Definitely a great product as well!
I have the color 05 Geranium and 08 True Red.
The last 2 products I want to show you are not new but they have new colors available.
The Colorgel Lipbalms are moisturising lipstick balms that wrap the lips in vibrant, comfortable, semi-sheer colour.
They are perfect if your lips are dry as they are very forgiving and actually smooth your lips. They give also a fresh and glossy finish!
ModernMatte Powder Lipstick
The ModernMatte Powder Lipsticks are part of another very well famous and appreciated range of Shiseido. This is a weightless, full-coverage, matte lipstick that lends lips long-lasting, velvety colour.
They give a lot of pigmentation, dry to a soft velvety finish. They don’t dry the lips, they are emollient enough (although matte) to feel very comfortable on the lips. I have to say that this is certainly one of the best velvet formula I have came across. The color impact is strong but they still feel super comfortable!
The bullet has a square form but is very easy to manœuvre.
