I told you I was on the lookout for a nice, rosy nude shade. I tested out Dior Grège 1947, and I didn't feel instant love for the formula (though it was just from a sample card), so I didn't run out to buy it. (Plus, you guys made me buy Trafalgar).
But I was at the Macy's Shiseido counter picking up a pre-order of skincare (GWP time!), and since I was being helped by my favorite SA, we played with some of the colors. She showed me a fun way to use my YE406 trio (see here), and I picked out a warm, rosy pink Lacquer Rouge to try - RD311, Rubelite.
Lacquer Rouge here). It is a bit tacky, but it's not drying and the tackiness is alleviated with reapplications at reasonable intervals (I don't expect my lip colors to stay all day - I find that any formula will get drying if left to fade for hours, so I reapply.).

RD311's finish is a touch more creamy and opaque than BR616, but I think I like the formula of that one slightly better - it's a touch less sticky and easy to even out (I think the shimmers make this one a little thicker). Still, this fits the bill for what I wanted. It pairs well with colorful looks, and neutral looks.

Have you hopped on board the liquid-balm-gloss-lipstick-hybrid-what's-it train? What's your favorite formula? Do you have any of these?
