I was lucky enough to have friends in Japan at the start of January who served as makeup mules for me – these two lipsticks were part of the haul their brought back for me.
Ever since the lovely Jane of Wondegondigo posted about the Visée Creamy Lipstick RD401 I have been pining to get it. Her raves made me invest in more than one, and I decided to go for RD400 as I liked the look of the colour online. Thankfully I wasn’t disappointed.
RD400 is a very muted red with hints of dusty rose, a great everyday shade. RD401 is a va-va-voom blue-based red, creamy and gorgeous. Both shades are incredibly pigmented – the swatched below are one swipe only. I included pictures of the packaging because it feels expensive despite Visée being a drugstore brand.
