I'm not entirely sure why the good people at Shiseido decided to keep some of the Lacquer Rouge shades as Asia exclusive (other than to send us, makeup addicts, on a quest to find them). The moment I saw photos of these elusive Shiseido Lacquer Rouge colors I was set on finding and obtaining RS 312 Sunstone. Thankfully, StrawberryNet had it for sale, so here it is.
I'm very fond of the texture and finish of these liquid lipsticks from Shisedo. There are several other similar products in the market these days, but I think I can finally say that the formula of Lacquer Rouge is the most gentle on the lips, long lasting, fades evenly and doesn't leave me with a parched feeling. RS312 Sunstone is a rich medium rose, perhaps my preferred lip color of all times for its versatility and easy to wear elegance.
The other colors you see above in the swatch photos are NOT Asia exclusive and can be found anywhere Shiseido Lacquer Rouge lipsticks are sold. I'll have more photos and a full review of them soon.
Shiseido Lacquer Rouge Asia Exclusive RS312 Sunstone can be purchased from strawberrynet.com. The price is $28.50 (do note that the regular price of this product at the counter is $25).
