Here's something quick and bright for a gloomy Monday: Shiseido Lacquer Rouge in Nocturne RD607. You already know that I love these liquid lipsticks from Shiseido-- their rich and opaque formula is as intense as it is comfortable to wear.
Nocturne RD607, a deep velvety red with a hint of burgundy is the latest shade to join its siblings in my lipstick drawer. As the name implies, this is a night out color. It registers very red when I wear it and doesn't seem to be affected by my natural dark rose lip color. I find that this level of intensity requires a very precise application and a defined lip contour, unless I use very little product and apply the lip lacquer as a stain or mix it with a balm. Thus, Shiseido Nocturne is actually quite versatile. It's also long lasting-- pretty much like a regular lip stain, though the lacquered finish needs touch ups throughout the day.

Bottom Line: Nice to have.
