It's been so long that I can't say for sure, but I think I got this as part of a gift with purchase in the mid-1980's. The color is atypical of my choices during that time period and I really didn't have a use for lip liner either.
I wouldn't describe the color as beige, more of a warm dark peachy brick rose. The texture is hard and waxy, but it applies smoothly and with opacity in one quick stroke. Here it's swatched with another Shiseido liner and one by Lancome.
