Shiseido The Makeup Sheer Color Lipstick in Clear Orange Review & Swatches

I am a big fan of Shiseido products. It depicts the perfect Japanese idea of makeup- subtle and feminine. This is a lipstick I almost daily use when I am going to the market or just the nearby café. I am quite experimenting when it comes to lip colours and will try light, bright, bold, outrageous any sort of colour on my lips.(not black or blue)Here is my experience with Sheer Color Lipstick in Clear Orange from Shiseido's The Makeup range.

Price: ₹1420/approx.(€20)

Description: The packaging is nice in  metallic brown casing curved at the central point. The colour of the lipstick is  quite pretty peachy orange but appears to be too bright for medium or dark complexions. The sleek casing is quite sturdy and less prone to breakage.

My views: I was a little shaky in applying the lipstick as I was scared it will not look good on my skin tone. But surprisingly it looked so sheer and nice that I have made it a part of my everyday makeup routine. The formula is so moisturizing that you do not need a lip balm to prime your lips. It spreads smoothly giving a sheer hint of peachy hue on your lips. My lips are quite pigmented but still it creates a lovely subtle hint of peachy coral. It is odourless can be removed easily without leaving any annoying stain. The staying power is moderate but I should not expect much from a sheer lippie. It can stay put for about 3 hours if you are not sipping or munching anything in between. However, after eating, the top layer of glossy colour fades away leaving a slightly matte peach tone, which by itself is pleasant to look at.

2.Subtle colour
3.Decent staying power
5.Gives a glossy effect

1. Nothing I can think of

Rating:4.75/5 just because the staying power could have been a little better(too demanding)
