Product Description: “Love your lips, with Lancôme’s Rouge in Love, featuring up to 6 hour perfect wear combined with an addictive featherlight texture”.

My Experience: This lipstick first caught my eye when the lovely Lisa Eldridge used it on Kate Winslet for the Titanic 3D premiere. And then she used it in a tutorial recreating Winslet’s look, and I was hooked. There’s no doubt about it, this is a rich, beautiful shade and the formula is very good indeed. It’s slick and smooth and ultra pigmented. It lives up to Lancome’s featherlight texture claims. It’s light as a balm and very comfortable on the lips. Lasting power is very good. If you apply and blot three times, it will probably last the full six hours. It lasted a good few hours when I wore it without blotting and layering. It never dried out or budged. Actually, I had to rub really hard to get the swatch off my hand and even after doing the dishes, a smear of red remained. There’s a nice juicy shine to this lipstick that makes lips look delicious. And the packaging is super cute, very petite and dainty. I love the pretty script on the tube, the ribbon-like dotting up the side and the detail of Lancome etched along the bottom. Interestingly, I found this shade looked much more bright and red on me than on Winslet or in Lisa Eldridge’s tutorial; it seemed more similar to Emma Watson’s ad. I’m NC20 for reference. Anyway, this is a great new line of lipsticks from Lancome and I can’t wait to try out some more shades.

The Skinny: Long-lasting, ultra pigmented, moisturizing and glamorously shiny. A great lipstick.
