Lacquer Rouge - Inspired by Japanese lacquer artistry 

The Art of Lacquerware

Decorative articles and containers made of wood or paper and coated with lacquer are called lacquerware.  Lacquer artisans complete specific processes to achieve the art form's beautiful lacquer finish. 

The lacquerware technique is used for furnishings, ornaments, building architecture, religions articles and various other pieces.  The oldest known example of lacquerware was unearthed at a ruin in Hokkaido, Japan and is estimated to be about 9000 years old.  Throughout the ages, Japanese lacquerware has been treasured for its lustrous shine, elegant patterns and beautiful forms. 

One Coat of Lacquer Rouge - layers of lustrous effects

To develop a truly lacquer-like lipstick, Shiseido examined the traditional processes used in lacquer artistry.  Just as these techniques allow lacquer to add smoothness, color and shine to wood, we developed processes that allow a liquid formulation to do the same for lips.  The result is a completely modern rouge that gives lips an exquisitely sensual, lacquer-like finish in just one coat. 

How Lacquer Rouge works:

Effect 1

The lip surface becomes even, and benefits from skincare effects (improved rough lips, moisturising efforts lasts for hours)

Effect 2

Deep color comes out beautifully

Effect 3

Lips are finished with a rich, polished shine


I had the chance to preview and swatch all the available shades lately, and here they are.  The texture is amazingly smooth in one coat, the shine and color intensity is really impressive.  I will be featuring lip swatches and LOTDs for my top picks among these shades in a later entry.

Special thanks to Mag for helping to take photos of the swatches on my arm.

About Me

My name is Sophia, and I am in my early 30s. I am from Singapore and I am the sole writer of this blog.

About this Blog

I started this blog in 2006, I like to use a wide range of brands though I seem to have a growing preference for higher-end brands in recent years. I also like to share interesting things I have come across about makeup and beauty.

Currently The Makeup Blogette receives 39,000 unique views monthly or 2,238,932 views and counting.

My Makeup Style

I like classic looks (neutral tones on eyes, anything goes for lips & cheeks), though occasionally I try out dramatic/ statement looks.  I believe that a flawless base is the key to achieving great makeup looks.  I also believe that if you don't have great skin to start with, fake it with a good foundation routine, and even greater skincare.  I am currently loving Clarins & Lancome skincare products, and Vichy NormaDerm for tackling with breakouts.

What Cameras do I use?

Most of the pictures you see in post 2010 entries are taken with my Canon G-11.  Previously I was using Canon Ixus 80.  I do post some pictures which are taken with my iphone4 which I will state in that particular entry.  I have stopped watermarking my pictures as of 2011, because I think watermarks are ugly in general, and does not prevent people from stealing my pictures if they wish to.  I just take it as a compliment that my pictures are even worth stealing in the first place. I might look into getting a Canon EOS next year, not just for blogging purposes, but I also like photography in general.

My Favourite Makeup Brand(s)

It is hard to name just one, but I like NARS, Chanel, Illamasqua and the ocasional Guerlain, Dior & Urban Decay item.  I own quite a stash of MAC items, but recently I have stopped catching up with their collections, and I much prefer to splurge on a few really outstanding items.

Where to find me

Twitter (link button above!)  Email (stated above!)  Instagram (makeup_blogette)

I have no official Facebook fan page, and currently have no intention to start one at all.  The Makeup Blogette remains my personal hobby and property, so as such, I don't believe in having a Facebook fanpage for it.

If certain products are sent to me for review purposes, I will say so and express my honest opinions about them. In any case, I will only review and showcase the products which I have personally tried and tested, and enjoy using. I do not get paid to review anything.

No ads, no paid links etc please.  I am in charge of all content and pictures here.

I am not a makeup artist, nor do I have any professional training in makeup.
