What they say:
Lips feel smooth and soft thanks to the nourishing and repairing oils that provide hydration for up to 6 hours with striking shine. As comforting as a balm, as colourful as a lipstick, as radiant as a mirror… An ultra-light texture for endless tailor-made looks that take you from day to night.
Rouge In Love is like a second skin that satisfies your every desire. In short: love at first sight."
You all know that I'm a sucker for packaging and the packaging for this collection is SOOOOOOO gorgeous! The lipstick is housed in a sleek brushed silver bullet and has a red stocking inspired stitching on the back. Very very sexy.
The shades are divided into three moods:
Jolis Matins - fresh shades for daytime wear which are identified with the letter M in the shade number; Boudoir Time - pop shades for cocktail hour which are identified with the letter B in the shade number and Tonight is My Night - intense shades for magical nights which are identified with the letter N in the shade number.
The shade I have for you is 163M Dan Ses Bras and it's a beautiful raspberry red. In the tube it looks shockingly bright but it's extremely wearable and also very pigmented. The formula of the Rouge in Love lipsticks is a cross between lipstick and lip balm which a lot of companies have been creating lately. I enjoy these formulas the most!
This is ONE swipe on my hand! See how pigmented it is? And glossy too? LOVE.
Overall: A new lipstick addiction has started - the Rouge in Love lipsticks are AMAZING. They are super pigmented - something I don't expect with these hybrid formulas. The formula reminds me of the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks but much more moisturizing and long lasting which is fantastic. They claim to last 6 hours which I found to be pretty accurate but I still needed to touch up after a few hours. It leaves a nice stain behind if you don't reapply so you still get a nice hint of colour long after the lipstick has worn off. The lipsticks have a slight scent to them and I love that it feels very lightweight on the lips.
The shade does bleed a little so I find using a liner and applying with a lip brush helps to get a clean finish - for these swatch pics I didn't use liner though. This is slightly annoying when it comes to touch ups on the go but reapplying straight from the tube isn't too difficult.
Details: The Lancome Rouge in Love lipsticks are available now in 21 shades from Myer, David Jones and selected pharmacies for $45.
