It's very simple: As long as Shiseido keeps making new colors of Lacquer Rouge liquid lipstick, I keep buying (at least some of) them. The last batch for fall included five shades. I chose two, RD728 Viola and RS727 Rose Grey. As a reminder, here's my usual gushing about the formula of Shiseido Lacquered Rouge: an almost weightless liquid lipstick with a polished, almost varnished finish. They feel great on the lips, last long and stay put once they're set.
RS727 Rose Grey is a muted beige rose that looks completely nude on my (quite dark) lips. It's the color to wear with a very dramatic eye look. RD728 Viola is a cool-toned mauvish thing, quite sophisticated and very season-appropriate. These two can be mixed together for a very pretty natural rose color that goes with just about everything.
Bottom Line: why didn't I get RD529 Tango?
Shiseido Lacquer Rouge RS727 Rose Grey & RD728 Viola ($25 each) are available at the counters and from shiseido.com.
