Shiseido gives us a red for every occasion with its brand new Rouge Rouge lipstick range

There's a reason why red lipstick gets all the publicity compared to other neutral-leaning or bold hues—the vivid shade engages the senses and heightens confidence, and is historically a symbol of fire and blood. Read any beauty article on how to look good under five minutes, and red lipstick is pretty much always on that list. A quintessential Parisian-chic must-have in beauty kits? A classic red lipstick, of course.


The colour red is also leading Japanese beauty brand Shiseido's signature colour, with its red camellia logo gracing the packaging of all products. In line with the all-red theme, Shiseido has unveiled a whopping 16 shades of red under its new lipstick line, Rouge Rouge. Need a dose of dusty red for a daytime look? Check. Painting the town red with a crimson pout? Shiseido Rouge Rouge has got you covered. The new formula features a rich, creamy texture that glides on evenly, leaving an intense colour, luster and moisture on your lips. If you've always been apprehensive of this colour lippie because of your skin tone, you'll be happy to know that Shiseido's extensive colour creation allows every individual to find a Shiseido red suited to their skin tone. Fret not over bleeding or dry lips as well, the Rouge Rouge is formulated to create a smooth lip-line and beautiful luster to make the lips appear more even.
