How have you guys been? I know I’m not posting as many reviews lately but I have just been trying to take it easy before I get burnt out! My oldest daughter started school and I am loving having some one-on-one time with my youngest since she never got that attention.
Recently, Lancôme sent over a big box of goodies so I am going through and reviewing each of the items in groups so it is easier to follow. Today I will be reviewing a few of the colors in the Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Lipstick line.
“Wrap your lips in rich, satiny color with this deeply replenishing lipstick. Infused with moisture-boosting Pro-Xylane™, lips stay moist, soft and comfortable for up to 8 hours. Antioxidant-rich Vitamin E helps keep lips safe from environmental aggressors, so they’ll look and feel healthier day after day. The stay true color won’t feather, flake or fade, so your pout will always look picture-perfect.” – Lancome.com
These lipsticks are housed in a gorgeous, sleek glossy black case with a magnetic closure, which is such a luxurious touch. The bottom of the tube is only labeled with the number that corresponds with the shade name, so it makes it a little harder to identify them without opening.
These do have that fairly strong “signature Lancôme” rose scent, so if you are adverse to strongly scented products these might bother you a bit. I think it is a bit strong, but its not overly offensive (like those damn L’Oreal lipsticks) so I can definitely get over it.
One thing is for sure, these sexy ladies are so creamy and pigmented with a satiny finish…they feel incredibly comfortable on the lips. Lancôme has them in their “medium coverage” category, but I think they are pretty darn close to full coverage. The colors last about 6-7 hours on me without becoming dry, bleeding or doing some weird fading thing. The darker shades definitely leave a noticeable stain behind, but it looks kind of pretty!
Top to bottom: Rose Petale, Rose Lancôme, Rouge Carrousel
• Rose Petale is a medium warm burnt orange/brown with a hint of gold shimmer. I like this one a lot more than I thought I would…it reminds me of PSL (pumpkin spice latte) season! 🙂
• Rose Lancôme is a vibrant fuchsia/berry creme, so pretty!
• Rouge Carrousel is a bright, warm coral creme. This color is perfect for summer time, which is sadly coming to an end here in the US.
Aside from the strong rose scent, I really, really love these lipsticks! They are just so comfortable and the color payoff & longevity are something dreams are made of! They are a bit pricy at $30.50 each, but there are 39 colors to choose from so you are bound to find the perfect shade for you! I think my favorite is Rose Lancôme (surprise, surprise) but I am throughly enjoying all of them!
