Recently I was lucky enough to get to trial the new Lancôme lipsticks “Rouge In Love” thanks to BeautyHeaven. I thought I would share the review I submitted, with you all.
I received the shade 379N Rose Sulfureuse which is a deep plummy pink. This isn’t usually a shade I would wear but I found it to be quite wearable. There are many others shades available ranging from corals to reds.
The packaging on these lipsticks is gorgeous. It is silver, has a nice weight to it and has an old world feel. It also has nice touches such as a rose (the Lancôme logo) imprint on the top of the lid. Rouge in Love is also written on the front in red and the back has a red stocking like print. Lancôme is also embossed, giving it a luxurious feeling.
The lipstick itself glides on smoothly and feels moisturising when applied. It feels gel based as it goes on. The colour is quite buildable. It can be worn with a light layer for a sheerer colour or applied heavier for a bolder colour. It has a beautiful finish that is glossy but not as glossy as a lip gloss. After some time though it dries down to be quite matte. I found it quite easy to apply straight from the bullet with no lip-liner or brush needed to get a clean line. I have dry lips but I find this lipstick comfortable to wear and not too drying.
It claims 6 hours of wear. I wouldn’t say that I get 6 hours of wears but then lipsticks never last long on me. I would get around 3 hours of wear with the colour looking as it did when applied and then another 2 or so hours of a nice stain on the lips.
I like that the lipstick doesn’t have a strong taste or scent. It is lightly scented but not overpowering.
At $45 it may seem expensive to some. To me the price is quite reasonable; Rouge in Love is a quality lipstick with a good formula. I already have plans as to what other shades I am going to purchase.
Have you tried these lipsticks? What do you think of them?
