Scar­let Fever

How many ways can you do a crim­son pout? Just ask Shiseido and its new line of 16 red lip­stick shades.

The name says it all: Shiseido Rouge Rouge, the Ja­panese brand’s all-out trib­ute to the vi­brancy, sex­i­ness and en­ergy of wear­ing a hot red lip.

But even the red­dest lip­pie won’t win over hearts if its for­mula isn’t done right. So Rouge Rouge (price un­avail­able) is made with oil to give it a glis­ten­ing fin­ish and to keep your pout well-hy­drated. The new for­mula also boasts a rich, creamy tex­ture that lets you paint on a smoother lip line more eas­ily, which in turns de­fines your puck­ers bet­ter.

Our tester was awed by how her Rouge Rouge lip­stick glided on evenly and richly, and stayed put af­ter a meal (even though the brand had humbly pro­claimed a quota of only four hours).

The lip­stick range comes in a whop­ping choice of 16 shades, all ex­ten­sions of red, of course. Take your pick from safe and sub­tle brown-reds and peachreds, girl­ish pink-reds or good-for-your-va­cay-tan orange-reds, and then grad­u­ate with Poppy, a clear bright red.
