Tatcha: Kyoto Red Silk Lipstick

“Nooks & Crannies” head wrap from The Wrap Life-  here

When my order of Tatcha’s Kyoto Red Silk Lipstick($55/3.7grams) and my trip to Kyoto this summer coincided it all just seemed like kismet. Who doesn’t love when the universe seems to sanction their beauty splurges?

Tatcha is a luxury skincare brand inspired by geisha beauty rituals and Kyoto Red is their modern interpretation of the geisha’s classic red lip.  I love the diamond quilting on the actual lipstick and the elegant black and gold lacquer case. I found it to be very pigmented with the first silky swipe with no discernible scent.  The lipstick feels like a luxury product when held and when applied.  I wore it out and about for a couple days and it stayed intact through lunch with minimal staining once removed.  Yes, I know it’s bright. Yes, I love it. My no fail red lip is Nars Cruella lip pencil. Kyoto Red comes in at a close second.

By the time this posts I should be back home ankle deep in laundry.  How are you spending this summer?

    The packaging is amazing! I love it when companies make universal lipsticks that are meant to suit all skin tones. I checked out the website and on the models shown it looked much darker on those with lighter skin but very bright on dark skin. I like the brightness its like a zing of happiness! :)& your wrap is very nice and the company name is great (the wrap life – hehe). Oh I understand too well about laundry … I haven't planned much for the summer but I'm making sure that I'll be doing more exciting things instead of the mundane. Kyoto looks nice – have a safe trip back 🙂

      Thanks Mango and Fudge. I love "zing of happiness" and I agree! I see that they are sold out now. I almost wish I had bought a back up. Laundry is the bane of existence isn't it? Keep me posted on those exciting summer plans 🙂

    Summer has been good. I would be afraid to go for something so bright if i had seen it in the store. But you make me want to buy one. It looks good on you.

      Hi Nerline! I'm happy to hear that. Whenever I can bring someone over to #teambright when it comes to lipstick I'm pleased. I hope the summer continues to go well for you and your family.
