The Kanebo Kate collection of this Autumn consisted of some additions of their existing products, such as the Glamtrick palette.
They also launched a new lipstick: the Rouge extra lipstick. As I am in a lipstick-craving mood lately, I really wanted to purchase this one. The question was, where?
I decided to buy one at ichibankao.com. I spotted this product a bit cheaper on jpmon.com, however, shipping is more expensive if you buy only a few items, so I decided to order just one product (free shipping) on ichibankao.
So here is the product...
And the beautiful black tube (and I already stained the tube with my fingerprint, LOL)
The product by itself...left in natural light, right in direct sunlight. As you can see, it is a true beige neutral...
When I first swatched it, it looked quite MLBB (my lips but better).
However, on my somewhat pigmented lips, it looked a bit more beige, which makes it ideal for a strong eye and neutral lip. My lips can be a bit red and restless without a lipstick, and this beigy neutral is a wonderful tool to tone them down a notch.
The texture is both moisturizing as medium pigmented. Several japanese lipsticks can be a bit sheer (which i personally love). This lippy, however, is a tad more pigmented, but still sheer enough for a natural look.
Overall, I like this lipstick and I will probably buy some more colours soon.
