Elegantly splashed with colour and undeniably stylish, Sydney’s Ivy poolside was the ideal muse for Shiseido’s Perfect Rouge product launch.

The weather-blessed city turned on a notorious sunny afternoon for an event prelude of extravagant edible delicacies and fresh cocktails served in lipstick stamped glasses.

Beauty editors and Shiseido executives witnessed the steadfast, waterproof technology of Perfect Rouge via the pouts of two synchronised swimmers before heading indoors for a delectable lunch that touched lips with a variety of texture and colour.

Divided into two levels of expression; ‘everyday wardrobe’ and ‘surprising,’ the new line of liveliness for lips comes equipped with seven new shades of Smoothing Lip Pencils for a kiss that won’t smear.

At the last spoon of dessert, attendees continued indulging as make-up artists were eager to recommend the perfect shade. Embodied by RD514 “Dragon” (a dramatic red), and Australian model Christina Carey, Perfect Rouge will launch February 8th.
