|half on half off comparison...IGNORE THE PEACH FUZZ!|
Next is Sheseido's "Titian" RS306 and this ran me 25 dollah!! This was from a shop in the local H-Mart (Korean supermarket) :O I COULD HAVE BOUGHT A NEW PAIR OF CIRCLE LENSES! But press onward to understand my temporary (or maybe notsotemporary) madness...the packaging was classy and sleek. The color....was probably the holy grail of all pink colors that I ever laid my eyes on! The texture was smooth and creamy making the application process easier and the moisture was so long lasting I wanted to cry TAT And just a quick side note, there were A LOT of pretty colors I saw there besides this one like other shades of pink, nudes, and even orangey colors. All of which had a creamy texture that were all matte based from my swatches so if you want some good quality lipsticks, you can't go wrong with Shiseido's line :]
MAC: You can't tell too well looking at the swatches on the pictures but it has some glittery specks in it that I can actually feel (it's slightly grainy) so it's pretty uncomfortable when it starts to dry out. Which leads me to say that it's not very moisturizing in comparison to Shiseido's "Titian". The color is nice but weak for my skin tone and almost unnoticeable unless I'm in a well light environment.
SHESEIDO: LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS! There's absolutely nothing wrong with this texture bc it's so creamy and smooth (like butter ^ ^). The hydrating formula is perfect and literally lasts for hours as promised from the Korean lady I bought it from and the color naturally stands out! I was so happy with this buy and I completely recommend my gal friends to buy it because it is worth the money! Kind of goes to show you that you can't go with what a lot of people rave about. Just gotta find out what's best for you :]
