Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Lipstick

A good lipstick is definitely one of my ultimate beauty must-haves. The right pop of colour can completely transform your look and not to mention your outfit. I mean seriously, is there any sassier accessory than a classic red lip? Nope, didn’t think so!

Well anyway, when I got home a week or so ago, imagine my excitement when I opened a package containing two of the new and extremely gorgeous Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Lipsticks*. One sheer nude, Rose Nu and the other a vibrant pink, Rose Lancome. The brand new range is an update on Lancome’s classic L’Absolu collection, but with a fancy new, clickable applicator and an even more moisturising formula.

So what’s special about it?

Each lipstick is enriched with Pro-Xylane, which apparently creates the appearance of fuller and smoother lips. Now as you know, I’m always game for a bigger pout and I have to say, (especially with the brighter shade) this definitely helped accentuate my lips. I’d recommend applying with a good quality lip liner though, as it does have a little bit of a tendency to bleed.

But by far the best thing about this product is the wear. I’m talking about eight hours baby! I applied Rose Lancome in the morning at around 8am before leaving the house and by the time I got home that evening there was still an definite pop of pink on my lips. I’ve tried a lot of lipsticks in my time and not one has lasted an entire coffee fuelled day in the office quite like this one.

The L’Absolu range is available in a selection of 21 sheer, cream and matte shades, so there’s something for every occasion. And I don’t know about you, but I cant think of many occasions when a new lipstick isn’t in order. Well, at least that’s what I tell the bf!
