Lipstick has a special spot in my heart. It can make you look and feel like a new person with just one swipe, and it was the only makeup item that actually increased in sales during The Depression. Thankfully, the economy has improved vastly since then, but our love for lipstick has remained strong! Lancôme recently launched a new collection with 14 colors and I am absolutely in love with them.
The new L'absolue Rouge Definition retails for $36.00 CAD, and will get you 3.6g of product. The packaging is of course beautiful, black and gold and very sleek. And the magnetic closure is just the icing on the luxury cake. These lipsticks definitely have a scent, and a scent that lingers. Even after wearing them for an hour or so, you can still smell them. This isn't something that bothers me, but just be aware if you are extremely scent sensitive. The bullet is shaped to a sharp point which gives great definition to the lips, and the matte finish lasts for SO long on the lips! I was super happy with the wear time of these lipsticks, and they did not dry my lips out. I can see these accentuating dry flakes on the lips (as any matte lipstick would) so if your lips are in need of some care, exfoliate them and apply a layer of balm before your lipstick and that will help everything look more smooth and healthy.
Who is tired of me talking? Let's get into swatches!
If any of you love lipsticks and are looking for your new favorite shade, try one of these ultra pigmented, super smooth lippies! There are some absolute beautiful colors for Fall...
Till next time! XX
Some blog posts might seem ridiculous. This is a safe environment for Beauty Junkies! If you bought something just because of the packaging, or you find yourself procrastinating by swatching, this is the place for you.
