You probably know I love bold lipsticks and selecting the appropriate shade that complements my skin tone, personality, style and occasion is very important. This holiday season, my ideal lipstick is a bold, red that is creamy, moisturizing and that will last through the day. My search for a bold, red lipstick led me to partner with Shiseido to share their new Rouge Rouge Collection. Not only is the formula really comfortable to wear, it comes in 16 different shades making it perfect to wear to holiday parties, office parties and whatever event this holiday season throws at me.
Among the 16 shades available in Shiseido’s Rouge Rouge line, my go-to red color is the Shiseido Poppy (RD312). It is a classic, clear bright red, which is synonymous with my style. I also love the ‘Bloodstone’ Rouge Rouge shade (RD503) for its intense rich and brownish red
color. This will be my ideal shade for date night or a glam look for the holiday.
Picking the right shade of Rouge Rouge lipstick for my mom and friend will make a great holiday gift for them because how much they love lipstick and I have never seen them go a day with wearing one. Sharing the perfect lipstick that matches each of their personal styles, will show them that I took my time in selecting a special gift for them. A lipstick gift to mom and a friend is something that resonates with me because I can tailor it to their specific needs since I know them well and truly have a special connection with them.
For my mom, I chose the ‘Toffee Apple’ for its sweet and warm red tone. Her style, medium skin tone and warm personality makes the Shiseido Toffee Apple Rouge Rouge (RD308) a perfect gift for her (bold without being too bright). Another shade that I will include for her will be the ‘Ruby Copper’ (RD501) for its vivid, warm, bright red color. For my friend whose style is very relaxed and easy going, my choices will be ‘Hushed Tones’ (RD713) and ‘Rose Crush’ (RD715). Both shades have pinkish brown tones and going by her personality, she will prefer something subtle and bold.
Knowing that getting the right shade for you or a friend or family member can be tricky, Shiseido has technology on their site that allows you to upload a photo to see what Rouge Rouge shades look best.
