Lancome’s L’Absolu Rouge Lipsticks ($32; lancomeusa.com; September 2016) have been reformulated and launched in three different finishes and 44 different shades. The finishes include sheer, matte and cream. I tried a few colors from the sheer & cream range, so here’s a quick review with swatches.
The packaging of these lipsticks are beautiful - they come in a classy lacquered black tube with the signature Lancome rose embossing which clicks to open and close. The lipsticks have a scent similar to the older Lancome L’Absolu Rouge lipsticks. The formula is really nice in terms of texture, creaminess and overall wear. The cream finish is full coverage with a smooth glide and has a beautiful sheen to it. The sheer finish isn’t too sheer, it is quite pigment packed for a sheer lipstick and is a tad more glossy compared to the cream finish. These lipsticks wear really well throughout the day and they feel very smooth, nourishing and comfortable to wear. Overall, I really like them and would love to try more of the sheer finishes once they launch. The color range looks like a fabulous one, with 44 shades ranging from nudes to bright pinks to deeper plums and reds, I'm sure there’s at least one color & finish for everyone.
