Shiseido Perfect Rouge lipsticks in RD142 Sublime and RS745 Fantasia

Recently Shiseido reformulated their much beloved Perfect Rouge lipsticks and added some new colours too while at it.

While most of them are repromotes, it was still worth it to get a couple of them because Shiseido also reformulated the texture of these lipsticks.

Two of my favorites must be RS745 Fantasia and RD142 Sublime.

The formula is noticable creamier than the regular Perfect Rouge range which I was very pleased about. Very smooth and moisturizing on the lips and yet long lasting.

With the release of this new formula they also added more interesting colours instead of the usual neutral/nudish shades that is so typical for Shiseido.

Shiseido Fantasia and Sublime Perfect Rouge lipsticks

Fantasia is a gorgeous plum shade that filled a nice gap in my stash because I don't own a plum colour that really suits me.

I find plums in general is a tricky colour and it's definitely not a universal shade that will look good on almost all skintones so no need to say I'm very pleased with this one.

Shiseido RS 745 Fantasia

Sublime is a pinky coral shades and it seems to look different on everyone. Some find it to be more of a reddish shade while others said that it looked more coral on them.

On me it's more of a coral shade with a hint of pink in it but bear in mind I don't have very pigmented lips to begin with.

Shiseido RD 142 Sublime

Here a some swatches that I did and I must say that Sublime does look a bit darker on my arm than when you apply it on the lips.
