I have quite a few red lipsticks and I do love a good red! Today I want to show you one of my favourites.
Lancome’s L’Absolu Rouge (£21) in 160 Rouge Hypnose is simply perfection! This has to be my favourite lipstick that I’ve tried recently (apart from Lush, will tell you about it later).
I really love the design, in fact, I think this may be my favourite luxury lipstick design. It is very elegant and classic, the magnet on the cap is a great detail, too.
The texture and the shade are fantastic! L’Absolu Rouge is soft and smooth, applies like a dream and gives a beautiful colour pay-off.
Rouge Hypnose is not a very bright in-your-face-red and at the same time it is not a sheer, barely-there balmy red. This makes it a perfect lipstick both for day time and night out. You know, some red lipsticks get way more attention than one would like, this one is not like that.
This lipstick feels very comfortable on the lips, it is not drying. As for the staying power, I re-apply it during the day several times…
Rouge Hypnose is a part of Lancome’s Autumn collection and was sent to me by the company but I am definitely going to the counter to check out other shades from the range.
Although, I definitely do not need more lipsticks right now, I love this one so much that I ‘have to ‘ 😉
