Pros: Shiseido really excell at blending colours that flatter fair, olive or yellow toned skin. Colour RD514 Dragon is no exception; an extremely flattering as well as dramatic neutral true red. Easy to apply thin for a red tint or defined. Can be applied straight from the stick! I usually think a brush is the way to go for a nice and perfect finish but this applies like a dream without. I use a brush only for perfecting outlines. Pigmented yet soft and silky to the feel. Softening effect, my lips are softer after use than before. Protected lips well in the below zero temperature and hard winds here this week. Wears well for lipstick. No unsightly patches or streaks when it wears off. Doesn't bleed, no use to lip line for that reason. Nice metal tube. Stylish.
Cons: No extraordinary staying power, but I was not expecting that either. A swatch before purchase on the back of my hand is all it takes to know that. Never, ever believe promotional claims! It's that simple. A lipstick sealer or a tint is the way to go if you want truly long lasting lipcolour.View Review
Had gotten mine from the counter. It comes in a sleek black packaging, reallty classy and classic. The texture comes out really creamy but not too thick. There is no unpleasant scent whatsover. The lipstick lasts for about 3-5 hours, which is enough for me, also it does not simply smudge. I also sometimes use this to get my matte color (using tissue paper to absorb the shine). It does not dry out my lip too. Overall it's a good lipstick which i'd like to repurchase the other colors. Also highly recommended!View Review
