Shiseido Incense (209) VisionAiry Gel Lipstick is a brighter, medium-dark peachy-coral with strong, warm undertones and a cream finish. The color payoff was good in one layer, though the color could have applied more evenly along the edges. There was slight, but visible, streaking apparent that I just couldn’t seem to correct.
The lipstick had a lightweight, creamy, and fluid texture that skated across my lips initially. It felt like it had a lot of slip but it set a bit within the first minute or so where it developed light tackiness and some of that slip disappeared. It wore well for five hours but had a bit of product that continued to settle into my deeper lip lines over time, though it was lightly hydrating.
Shiseido J-Pop (210) VisionAiry Gel Lipstick is a medium-dark, pink-coral with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. The lipstick yielded semi-opaque pigmentation in one layer, which didn’t build up much beyond that.
The texture felt lightweight, creamy, and smooth as it glided easily across my lips, though there was a touch of product that sank into my deeper lip lines but wasn’t enough to be noticeable in person. The color could have applied a bit more evenly, too. It lasted well for four and a half hours and felt lightly moisturizing while worn.
Shiseido Woodblock (212) VisionAiry Gel Lipstick is a medium brown with strong, warm yellowish undertones and a satin finish. It had excellent pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging.
The lipstick had a lightweight consistency that felt creamy and smooth during application, and while it had a fair amount of slip initially, it developed a bit of tackiness within the first few minutes of wear that helped the product adhere quite well over the long haul. The color stayed on nicely for five and a half hours and felt lightly moisturizing over time.
