Review: Shiseido MAQUillage Perfect Lip Gloss from Alexander Wang

Shiseido’s MAQUillage range must make the most consistently stunning lipsticks and glosses, ever. It took me a while to get my paws on their newest gloss, the Perfect Lipgloss, because the exchange rate is so poor. In the end it cost me something like £16.

The Perfect Lipgloss is supposed to be transfer resistant (hence the model is holding a disposable coffee cup….makes no sense, I know).

Four of the shades are from the Alexander Wang collection (Limited Edition) – I got PK445 which is a bubblegum pink with a bit of shimmer.

Urgh! I can’t believe how much I spend on this ikkle gloss! See the swatches after the jump!This gloss is semi-sheer. It leaves the lightest of tints, so its easy to wear…I actually wanted something with more punch. The shimmer is subtle and very pretty as always:

I love the applicator. Gorgeous! Its a flat sponge which gets into the corners of the mouth. Its nice and soft too:

Its thin from the side. I did test out how transfer resistant this is and my answer is – no more transfer proof than any other gloss. It still left a sticky residue…that’s what glosses are meant to do, innit?!

On the lips:

Its a very pretty gloss indeed, that I cannot deny and although I am glad I tried this out, as I do with all the new MAQUillage lip products I wouldn’t say this gloss is perfect. It needs more pigment (or at least the shade I tried), a bit more va-va-voom for the price.

And with it approaching Christmas, I like the stronger lip. Overall this was nothing extraordinary – if you are making your first MAQUillage lip product purchase, make sure it isn’t this product.

Don’t worry, got lots of pigmented glosses and lipsticks reviews coming up!

      Hi Aya

      Oh yes, but I mean why hold a paper disposable cup? It doesn’t matter if you get lip gloss on a cup you are going to throw away…
