Day 3 of the 30 lipsticks in 30 days project and we have a star pick of Lancome lippies. It has to be Lancome’s L’absolu Rouge a new and revamped line of lipsticks from Lancome Cosmetics.
Lancome L’Absolu Rouge – Rouge Rayonnant 47
Lancome L’absolu Rouge lipsticks come in a really cute case. The sleek black over snaps shut with a magnet unlike the conventional click mechanism. I sat for hours just playing with it. Ok, I exaggerate – it was at least half an hour while I waited for bureaucracy to entangle itself in red tape 😛
The color I have is Rouge Rayonnant 47 which is a gorgeous rose-red colour with slight warm gold tones. The texture of the lipstick is smooth and creamy, just sliding onto my lips like satin. Lancome says its from its pro-xylene technology. I just say that its an awesome lipstick that gives you lovely colour.
Pigment is strong yet it goes on a little sheer at first. You can actually build up the colour to look just like it does in the tube. I use this day and night – for the day, its just 1 or 2 swipes and for night, I build it up for intensity.
