From my past experiences, long-lasting lipsticks and my dry lips just don’t get along but with Kanebo Sensai Lasting Treatment Rouge, I no longer have to sacrifice moisturized lips for long-lasting color!
Infused with Koishimaru Silk Extract, Kanten (Agar)-treated pigments and Auto Coating Gel, the Lasting Treatment Rouge promises to deliver superior coverage, moisture and lasting colour fidelity.
It is available in 18 gorgeous shades and I have LT17 Neshoubu, a medium pink and LT16 Soubi, a bright tomato orange. Both are very wearable colors that will suit a variety of skin tones and are perfect for the summer.
The lipstick has a smooth, moisturizing texture that glides on easily without highlighting flakes and the pigmentation is superb! It is so much more opaque than my favorite MAC lipsticks and handsdown one of the best I have seen. It also leaves behind a very pretty glossy sheen so there is no need to top with gloss if you like a “wet” look.
Another thing that I find impressive is the wearability. When they say “lasting”, they DO mean it! The lipstick stayed on for hours without drying out my lips and even survived a cup of coffee. I do have to reapply after a meal but the lipstick left behind a stained look so you can tell the color is still there.
I would definitely buy every single color if it wasn’t so expensive.
The Kanebo Sensai Lasting Treatment Rouge is available at Neiman Marcus for $40.
