Shiseido Lacquer Rouge Asia Exclusive RS312 Sunstone

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 The price is $28.50 (do note that the regular price of this product at the counter is $25).


  1. I have Nymph RD 305, which I love, but the other colors that looked right for me were Asia-only: Sunstone and Carnelian. Thanks to you and StrawberryNet, they will soon be mine! ~~nozknoz

  2. I saw this lovely shade reviewed by several bloggers, was also smitten, and have been waiting for mine to arrive from StrawberryNet. Rich rose colors have always been my go to lip shades.

  3. Hi Gaia,

    I am a long time reader, one of the few times I am commenting though. This was the first liquid lipstick I tried out, in the exact same shade, and I love love love it ! I tried the YSL stains after these, and though I love those, certainly the moisture in these is much better and that's why I like these better.

  4. 702 Looks glorious and quite retro, I must swing by my Shiseido counter to give it a try!

  5. I snagged sunstone and amethyst during a recent visit to Hong Kong. Amethyst is gorgeous and I have no idea why such a versatile and popular color isn't available in North America! Thank god for Strawberrynet as thulis is my favorite lip formula. Long lasting and moisturizing and glossy without being too sticky. Love it!

  6. Sunstone looks gorgeous! I must try these!
