Shiseido Modern Matte Powder Lipstick in Whisper 502
The Shiseido Whisper Modern Matte Powder Lipstick is a beige lipstick with pink undertones. Formulated to leave a creamy matte finish on the lips, this lipstick feels weightless.
I’m not sure what I was expecting for the Shiseido Whisper Modern Matte Powder Lipstick especially as I don’t normally opt for light, beige-pink lipsticks but I was surprised to discover how difficult the oil/pigment powder base formula of this lipstick made it so difficult to apply.
It might not look like it in my swatch but due to the paleness of this shade against my dark skintone, I actually spent quite a bit of time blending, feathering and cleaning up the Shiseido Whisper Modern Matte Powder Lipstick to obtain even, streak-free coverage. That said, this leads me to one of the best things about this lipstick – it’s bullet.
I actually really like the unique, cuboid tipped shape of this lipstick as I felt that it did help me manoeuvre my way around this lipstick. Although the shape of the bullet will start to change with continuous use, I have to say that the pigmentation and the bullet makes me want to explore darker shades in this range to see if they perform better.
This non-drying formula delivers matte, full-coverage color that feels utterly weightless and provides a powder-soft finish on lips.
A unique blend of waxes and oils melts and transforms into an ultra-thin, featherweight powder, while spherical pigments float across lips to blur imperfections. Available in 24 shades inspired by Tokyo’s vibrant nightlife, this statement-making lipstick provides eight hours of rich, velvety color.
