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.
  1. I love the Laquers too. Lovely colours...and of course, lovely samples ;)

    1. It turned a tad darker by the end of the day, so I need to look at lighter shades.

    1. The SA there is always good to me sample-wise. Ditto Estee Lauder and Lancome. Chanel gives only 1-2 :(

  4. Hey ReNu been a long while since I heard from you. So you finally tried these out. I love these and knew you would like them a lot too. Btw they do have names 305 is the very popular shade called "Nymph" and 501 is called "Drama"... I had reviewed 305 too. I think I now like Drama shade more than the 607 Nocturne shade. :) I want Drama after seeing your swatch!

    1. Same here! Thank you for the shade names. I had been to Shiseido a couple of times and they didn't have anything I liked in the Lacquer Rouge. Got there just in time before these sold out.

    2. Oh, and it's Renu, not "ReNu" although it's nice when people ask if Bausch and Lomb named their bestseller after me.
