I think I can call myself a grown-up but I still feel a little bit shy about trying on red lipstick. When I discovered this Shiseido lipstick TV ad (apparently broadcast sometime in the 80’s as a one-off, end of year special), I was speechless. I’d never seen such a beautiful TV commercial like this before and I couldn’t believe just how subtle three minutes could be. I’d totally run out to buy this lipstick if there was an ad like this on TV now! And how can I not notice how fresh and innocent the girl (Hiroko Yakushimaru) is – I always love the natural soft look. Ah, this is why I can never ever try red lipstick…


A time will come?
