Pucker up ladies ‘cause gone are the days where we find ourselves choosing between the shine that our lipgloss provides and the intense colour pigments that our lipstick offers.

Inspired by Japanese lacquer artistry – where wood is smoothed, sanded and lacquered to bring out the lustrous colour and rich shine – the new Shiseido Makeup Lacquer Rouge replicates that same finish on your lips.

While it takes at least three steps to give wood that perfect finish, one step is all you need for your lips.

The new collection is the perfect glam-me-up solution where you can achieve the effectiveness of three layers – hydrate and smoothen in the first layer, intense colour pigments in the second layer and high shine in the third – all in one coat.

To sum it up succinctly in the words of creator Dick Page, “The collection is about the simplicity of a lip gloss married to the intensity of a lipstick, with deep pigment and rich colour payoff, long lasting shine and gloss. The lacquer rouge collection creates "a speedy glamour".
Dress up your puckers with the new Shiseido Makeup Lacquer Rouge line available in 12 different shades – from cool nudes to trendy brights.

Plus, there are four exclusive shades – Warm brown Carnelian, sweet pink Amethyst, reddish-beige Rubelite and deep red Sunstone – designed specially to suit Asian preferences.

Here are all 12 shades in their full glory. Click on it to discover your beauty quote of the day.
