Haul and review: Shiseido Lacquer Rouge swatches and skin care samples

The last time I went looking for the Shiseido Lacquer Rouge lippies, the shades I liked were out of stock, so I settled for the Perfect Rouge lippies (swatched here). This time, I found the perfect shades for me.

I picked shades RD305 and RD501. One is my beloved dusty pink and the other is red - the latter is a gift for my Mum (I have permission to swatch!) and, as usual, the SA (who knows my family quite well by now) gave me quite a few lovely samples.

About Shiseido Lacquer Rouge:

The formula is thick and opaque and will simply not bleed. Pigmentation is great and these are creamy and, therefore, non-drying.
Staying power is better than Perfect Rouge. There is some transfer, just as with Perfect Rouge, but I like these more than Apocalips.They stayed through the day, and ended up on my poor dentist's gloves today (filling fell out). She didn't say anything, though.
Packaging is in a lightweight metallic cylinder.
Applicator is a doe-foot wand. You're supposed to mix the product about by stirring the wand inside the container before applying. You need to be a bit careful not to get the product on your teeth while applying, though.
These lippies will definitely get a lot of love and I'll keep a lookout for other shades, too! I only wish the shades had names - unless I'm missing them?
Here are swatches, with and without flash, respectively.
Of course, you want to know what samples I got! I received a range of Shiseido The Skincare products (I have the full-size day lotion as well as more travel samples) and a brightening Eye Treatment, as well as a range of the Benefiance products. Everything was generously-sized, or I was given two samples! Here are pictures.
