It’s no secret that the right lipstick has near magical powers, taking your look from “meh” to vixen like a killer pair of heels or a new haircut. I like lunch hour cheap thrills; I’m the first girl to grab a coral or violet $8 bullet when my day needs a little boost. But when you need to bring out the big guns, treat yourself to the iconic Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge. Lancôme has always stood for French glamour, and the beloved range just got 6 new shades! Each shade is inspired by the world’s most legendary roses, like the blush pink Comtesse de Ségur. Luxe much?
Besides a mouthwatering fruity rose fragrance and a sleek magnetic case, the latest L’Absolu Rouge is updated with proXylane, ceramide V, vitamin E, and SPF 12 for comfortable wear. Lips stay moisturized under a veil of creamy color, no balm required. The satin finish won’t chap or flake with wear either.
More importantly, L’Absolu Rouge delivers fully saturated color. The smooth feel and SPF are a nice bonus, but the real luxury is in L’Absolu Rouge’s color payoff — these go on rich and opaque, and the color you see in the tube is what you see on lips.
I tried 2 of the brighter pinks. Rose Carrousel no 349 is a warm cherry pink meant to evoke a 19th century carousel. This shade is a little wild, so I wore it to perk up my face during a NYC drizzle. Rose Lancôme no 368 is my personal favorite, proof that Lancôme gets me. This cool bright pink is a wearable fuchsia, and does what any good statement lipstick should: pulls your look together like a full face of makeup, even if all you have on is lip color and a swipe of mascara.
