I did it! I finally wore the Shiseido Lipstick that I’ve been looking lustfully at for months, RS 452. A thick opaque colour that finishes things off with a magenta fuchsia tinge – though more to the fuchsia side of proceedings. What d’ya think? I’ve been attempting to pull it off combo-ed up with a sheer base. And there are no complaints on the formula; it’s a creamy finish so lacquers on loud and proud and stays put until you remove it or go to town on something greasy (tried and tested baby).
The only glitch? It’s a Shiseiso product so is only tangible and take home-able at the Shoppers Stop stores in Bandra, Malad, Juhu and Ghatkopar (oh and also in the Sephora Palladium store) and not available online. If that’s a bit of a headache I’ve got a dupe for you – Maybelline Color Show Creamy Matte Lipstick in Flaming Fuchsia. Slightly more magenta in tone (I like). And if that fails grab MAC Lipstick in Candy Yum Yum – the original magenta laced fuchsia. You can’t go wrong with it.
