Lancome L’Absolu Rouge new lipstick collection impressed me with the new packaging and variation of colors long before they launched in the stores. I couldn’t helped putting Lancome Rose Lancome L’Absolu Rouge on my wishlist since this is one of their iconic lipstick shades, a symbol of accomplishment, a rare and precious pink, like a pure moment of happiness. I bought it from Douglas perfumery with a 20% discount for being a beauty card owner and I honestly couldn’t imagine it will swatch pink since it look more like a red in the tube. I already had a beautiful violet shade with a sheer finish (Lancome Impertinente L’Absolu Rouge review) from the same range and I wanted a rosy pink hue, something that will look vibrant yet classy at the same time and with a cream finish, definitely a cream finish with a natural sheen.
Where to buy:
U.S. – Now at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and online @lancome-usa.com
Romania – Now at Douglas, Sephora, Kendra, Marionnaud, Debenhams
Lancome Rose Lancome L’Absolu Rouge (155.00 Lei / $32.00 / €32.00 for 3.4 g / 0.12 oz) is officially described as the innovative and original pink, the essence of radiant femininity. It’s a bright, precious pink with cool undertones and creamy finish that provides a natural sheen.
The color is so strong, vibrant and offers an intense pigmentation and full opacity in one swipe. The formula is creamy without being slippery when applied and the texture has a medium weight which still feels comfortable on the lips. The color glided effortlessly and evenly across the lips without tugging or being slippery. The formula is infused with moisture-boosting Pro-Xylane™ so my lips stay moist, soft and comfortable throughout the day. It is also enriched with Vitamin E which helps keep lips safe from environmental aggressors, so they’ll look and feel healthier day after day.

I absolutely love how intense and elegant this color looks on the lips. It will complement any skin tone and especially those with a light complexion I believe so you won’t have to worry that will look to intense on you. It instantly brightens up your face and even makes your teeth look whiter. 🙂
The color stays true for about 7 hours on me without feathering or settling into lip lines. I hardly need to reapply it when I have a meal or a drink. It does leave a pink stain behind which gives my lips a fresh and natural look.
The packaging is one of my favorites as I really like a lipstick that opens differently and has personality. I showed you on this quick video on Instagram how Lancome L’Absolu Rouge opens and why I love it so much. It comes in a sleek black case that features an innovative magnet closure system which makes it look so luxurious and chic at the same time. 🙂
