Lancome Le French Touch Lipstick in 314 Rose Candy - Review
Since seeing the print ads for the Lancome Spring 2012 collection I knew I had to pick something up from it. The ads were beautiful, Spring colours and so feminine and pretty. The collection has eyeshadow palettes, blushes, lipsticks and lip glosses.
There is three lipsticks in the collection. Two pinks and a coral. I chose the brightest of the pink 314 Rose Candy. The lipsticks are limited edition (two words that always have me opening my wallet).
I think the packaging on these is gorgeous. They are a small silver round tube. On the side of the lid it has green swirls going around - it actually reminds me of a carousel. The top of the lid has the Lancome rose imprinted on it. The packaging is quite heavy. It looks and feels very luxurious.
The lipstick itself looks a very bright pink in the tube. When applied you find it is a sheer formula. I think for a sheer formula the lipstick is still quite pigmented. I also like that this lipstick has no taste nor strong scent.
It is very smooth and easy to apply, a mirror isn't even needed. I love that about sheer lipsticks - so easy to apply. Plus with packaging this pretty I am going to want to whip it out of my bag and apply often. :) I have found it lasts a good 2-3 hours on the lips before needing to reapply.
I love how shiny this lipstick looks on the lips. It also feels really wonderful. It doesn't feel like I have anything more than a balm on my lips. I find it is quite moisturising too, even more so than other sheer lipsticks like Chanel Rouge Coco Shine and YSL Volupte Sheer Candy.
The Lancome Spring 2012 collection is currently available from Lancome stockists. This lipstick cost $49.00 and is limited edition.
