Here is the other Shiseido lip liner pencil I have from the mid-1980's. This is a much more typical color choice for me, though it's still likely to have been a gift with purchase. I had several Shiseido lipsticks since the formula was BOMB, but that wouldn't have convinced me to buy a liner I wouldn't use.
This liner is a bright opaque neutral to cool pink. It goes on easily despite its advanced age.
