      It was quite a surprise but a pleasant one! :D

    I thought about it when I was walking around and I really don’t really need another lipstick. The compact, though, that’s tempting but I don’t really need another blush. Also, the offer stands, happy to pick some items up for you if you want to from this end of the world :)

      Thank you :D But I think I’m good – I need another red lipstick like I need another arm :P Oh wait I may need another arm :P

    My heart went: “Ooooo!!!” when I saw how pretty the red was in the tube. The fact that it was sheer was a bit anticlimatic, but I would wear it every day :)

      I know right? It looks AMAZING in the tube but when swatched, its a bit disappointing. Well, unless you already know that its going to be sheer, then you won’t be disappointed :D

    I think it’s a permanent color? Otherwise, there’s number duplication – cos I know there’s a No. 365 in Lancome’s regular range of lippies (I’ve been eyeing it). But the tester I saw in Sephora has more pink tone, not a red as your pix. #konpius

      Thanks for the heads up. I looked around and apparently, it is a permanent colour so I’ve edited to reflect that :) Seems like just special packaging for this one. I don’t see pink in this though, just a straight red with blue tones (good for teeth whitening ;) )

    Though sheer, it looks good on you! That’s the sort of red that I’d wear! For an SE product, the price isn’t obscene :)

      Thanks Connie and yes, I could see you wearing this one now that you’re getting braver ;) Its the regular price of the Lancome lipsticks which I’m thankful for. I dislike it when brands jack up prices just because its limited ed. or special packaging.

    Wah, it is super red… I always wanted to try such bright color but I am so scared to experiment.

      Its not quite as red as some other colours I’ve worn ;) But if you’re looking to break into the red lipstick category, I think this is a good one to start with because it applies sheer so its not scary at all!

    Great effortless red on you! This is why swatches and reviews are so helpful…I wouldn’t have guessed it’s sheer, either.

      Thank you Peach_ and yes, swatches and real life experiences are very helpful (thank goodness for bloggers!) I was wondering from your comment if you’d been reading the whole debacle surrounding bloggers, magazine editors and commentaries over in the UK! LOL :D

        LOL There was some hoohah over a blogpost by a makeup artist turned blogger who slammed some beauty bloggers for being unprofessional and commented on “hairy armed swatches” that serve no purpose. The post got the thumbs up from some beauty editors of magazines including Cosmo UK so bloggers got upset online. I’m actually wondering how our local beauty eds feel about it (although we don’t have a large enough blogger pool to threaten, I’m guessing) :) That was it, in a nutshell.

        Yikes. Sort of glad I missed the drama. Thanks for the recap. *sips coffee*

        Yup! My timeline was going a little nuts coz I follow some of the UK bloggers. It was ugly but sounds like something that was waiting to happen. Pity.

    THanks for the post! I LIKE the fact this is sheer! As usual, you look FAB in red!

      Thank you Jamilla :D I guess you’re right. A colour this strong would have been a mite too strong if it were a solid opaque shade! :D

    I like that it’s sheer. More wearable. My mom liked it so much she actually nicked it from me. Lol!!

      Thank you my loyal subject :P This one’s nice for the sheer factor and for the fact that when layered, its just as pretty! :)

    Beautiful and classic red. You look stunning and full of life! Can’t you believe a color this gorgeous can achieve that? =)

      Wow thank you! I should wear this one more often then ;)

    Cute! I actually like sheer lipsticks to wear at the office. These days I’ve taken to a berry lipstick that I use very sparingly so to make it sheerer and people always compliment me when I use it (L102 by Ellis Faas).

    • Paris B
      December 26, 2011

      Ellis Faas! You’re reminding me to go dig mine out again :) I must agree that the texture is wonderful but that clicky pen mechanism doesn’t quite grow on me

      • Mari Ohira
        December 26, 2011

        Yeah, gotta agree with it: their click system is terrible! Too much waste. :(

    I love the colour and the look, they remind me of Labello’s Cherry lipbalm, that had been my favourite for years…
    But that’s also a con – if I can find a lipbalm that gives me the same look for 2 euros (and gives me 14% more product + works like a balm), why would I want to spend 7 times more money?

    I’d love to have seen a bit more pigmentation.

    With so many non-luxury brands stepping up their game, I look to the luxury ones for something special.

    • Paris B
      December 26, 2011

      Thank you. The colour is substantially more pigmented than a lipbalm but yes, if a lipbalm will serve your needs, it would make more sense to look to the stronger, more pigmented lipsticks. Most brands have ranges with sheer and opaque lip colours and in Lancome I believe the Colour Fever line is much more pigmented.

    I love this color! I have Shiseido Tender Sheer in Natural Red, which is similar. (I LOVE Shiseido lippies and don’t think they get enough love. I had one when I was younger and remembered how amazing it was…once I remembered the brand I couldn’t wait to get my hands on another.)

    I absolutely love it. It’s great for everyday, doesn’t just scream “hey look at me!” and I have no fear of it wearing off in odd ways (it wears off but doesn’t look at all atrocious when it does) so I can eat and drink with confidence. :) Plus really smooth and comfortable to wear.
