Lancôme Rouge in Love Lipsticks in 307 Sweet Embrace, 275 Jolie Rosalie

Lancome's Rouge in Love Lipsticks($25) come in 21 shades, categorized into three collections, wearable during different times of the day. These lipsticks claim to have high-intensity color with a feather light feel.


L-R : 307 Sweet Embrace, 275 Jolie Rosalie



I got to try out two shades, 275 Jolie Rosalie, a deep berry mauve and 307 Sweet Embrace, a nude beigey pink. I love the packaging, the stunning silver tube that you can tuck away even into the tiniest of purses. The lipsticks have a very smooth texture and glide on so well. Both shades are very pigmented and deposit a lot of color in just one swipe. 275 Jolie Rosalie went on smooth & even on bare lips and I did not have any issues with dryness either. Not an everyday color but, it is absolutely stunning and very flattering on my skin tone. Medium-dark skin tones will love this gorgeous berry. 307 Sweet Embrace has a lot of pigment but, needs good lip balm else it tends to enhance lip dryness quite a bit. It also washes me out when worn on its own so, I usually pair it with a lip gloss on top. It is a nice shade to pair with a killer smokey eye. Both lipsticks have a slight glossy, moist finish which I love.

The lasting power is about 3 hours on me after which it starts to fade evenly without being too patchy. My only gripe would be the smell, similar to what the L'Oreal Color Riche lipsticks have which I'm not very fond of. It takes about 15 mins to completely disappear. Other than that, these lipsticks feel very creamy yet, absolutely weightless and totally live up to what they claim. They feel comfortable and don't bleed or migrate even without a lip liner on.
