Lancome L'absolu Rouge

Lipsticks are a must-have in my bag, and I usually have 3-4 different lip colours with me each time I’m out because I like changing my lip shades according to my mood. If I’m feeling a little tired, a brighter lip colour will always perk me right up and if I’m rocking stronger eye makeup, I’ll tone down the lips to balance the look out. That’s the thing that I love about makeup, you can create a look to suit your everyday mood.

Today I’ll like to share with you - Lancome’s L’Absolu Rouge lipstick range because I can always rely on these lipsticks to fit any look I’m going for.

First, can we talk about the beautiful packaging of this lipstick? The black and gold combination is so classy and with a click-release (just push down the golden rose) it makes opening and closing the lipstick much quicker.

There are 39 colours in the L’absolu Rouge range and they come in 3 different finishes,
- Sheer
- Cream
- Matte

Here’s a swatch of the colors on my arm.
317 - Pourqoi Pas? (Sheer finish)
368 –Rose (Cream finish)
290 – Poeme (Matte finish)

I have to say, I’m really impressed with these lipsticks because all I needed was 1 swipe of the lipstick to get these colors & they apply true to color.

3 different shades of pink in 3 different finishes let me show you how I create the following looks based on these.

The color over here is 317 - Pourqoi Pas? in Sheer finish.

I paired the Sheer finish lipstick with a sweet & feminine floral dress.

The Sheer finish lip colour feels really light on my lips and I don’t even need a mirror to reapply or touch up the lipstick. It is a lipstick that I will grab when I’m in a rush and have no time to apply my lipstick to precision. Because of the sheer finish, it is more forgiving if you don’t apply within the lip line and it gives you a little more than a hint of colour to your lips. 

Next up is the 368 – Rose Lancome, in Cream finish.

This cream finish lip colour is really bold and vibrant, just look at that pigmentation and shine on my lips. I swear I did not apply any lipgloss over it. I decided to glam up my outfit for this cream finish and it was the right choice because it really goes very well with the look I had in mind. I feel confident and I think I just found my perfect bright pink lipstick.

& lastly, is 290 – Poeme, in Matte finish. 

For the final look, I paired the Matte finish with a more edgy look where the focus was on my smokey eyes and I needed a muted lip to balance out the look. & this lip color did just that, it gave a dusty rose color to my lips and best of all, I got a matte lip without having to deal with the dryness of what a matte liquid lipstick would have. Even though it is in a matte formula, the lipstick application was easy and glided on my lips smoothly, there was no tugging at my lips as compared to other brands of matte lipstick that I’ve tried.

So, which of these finishes do you like best?

For me, I would pick Sheer for a causal day out, Cream for an evening date and Matte when I want to have more pigmentation on the lips but not too loud.

The Lancome L’absolu Rouge range lipsticks are infused with moisture-boosting Pro-Xlyane that keeps lips moist, soft and comfortable for 8 hours. So there’s no need to worry about patchiness on your lips or even flakiness throughout the day, it is seriously hydrating. There’s also Vitamin E that is rich in antioxidant that helps to keep your lips healthier against environmental aggressors. & I love the variety of lip colors in the range as there are endless possibilities with the 39 different shades.

You need to try one for yourself, and you’ll fall in love with them as much as I do.
