A match for Ileana's Lip Color - Shiseido Lacquer Rouge VI324 Indiscreet

The above picture of Ileana D'Cruz at the recently held India Couture Week 2014 led to many discussions on Facebook regarding her lip color. Ileana's makeup was done by the MAC guru Mickey Contractor and obviously he used MAC products. Makeup artists rarely use a single lipstick and this was definitely a result of a combination of two or more lipsticks/lip liners/pigments etc. My guess is a mixture of Candy Yum Yum + Up The Amp + Heroine lip pencil but if you don't want the hassle of mixing shades and want a single lip color that matches that of Ileana's, your best bet is the Shiseido Lacquer Rouge VI324 - Indiscreet. This shade was part of Shiseido's Spring 2014 collection and is the perfect Radiant Orchid!

As smooth as lacquer, this rich liquid lipstick from Shiseido will leave lips looking luscious and plump with its intense saturated colour. Combined with Super Hydro-Wrap Vitalising DE, lips are kept deeply moisturised for a smooth and even surface.

I really like the Lacquer Rouge formula and this is my second lip color from that range. Radiant Orchid is a color that is quite tricky to pull of specially on medium-dark complexions but Indiscreet will look good on anyone. It's fresh, very summery and the texture so light that you will hardly feel anything on the lips. This is not a matte lip color so gives off a glossy finish but nothing too shiny. This lip color does not have any shimmer.

One of the cons is that the lacquer rouge formula does not last for a long time. I get about 2-3 3 hours out of it and it does not leave behind any stain. I bought Indiscreet from strawberrynet when it was giving 10% off on all makeup so got 20% off on the price and it came to Rs 1450. On strawberrynet, the price is Rs 1814.

Here is how the shade looks on me
What do you think about Indiscreet? Is it a color you would buy?
