In unfit hands, shimmer can go terribly wrong. But in the expert mains of Dick Page, we know we’re safe from major makeup blunders. “You can like a colour, but be a hooker in heels in a heartbeat…if you give it too much sparkle,” he explains. To remedy that, Page carefully tempered the colour and shiny pearl pigments he used to create Shiseido Shimmering Rouge lipstick ($30, at the Bay). The result is 13 grown-up shades that won’t make us look like ladies of the night.
