Lancome Luxe & Candy Almond L’Absolu Rouge Lipsticks Critiques & Samples

Lancome Luxe (238) L’Absolu Rouge moisturizing lipstick ($ 32.00 for 0.14 oz.) Is a soft brown base with lighter copper beads that gave it a more metallic sheen. It had semi-transparent to medium color coverage, even though it was labeled a cream rather than a sheer finish, so I was surprised by the lack of coverage. It felt more like a sheer finish; it was more slippery, felt less thin or sticky, and the opacity had a certain transparency.

The paint was applied evenly to my lips and forgiving of imperfections in texture, although a touch slipped into my deeper lip lines – not enough to be noticeable from normal viewing distance. It lasted a good four hours and felt slightly moisturizing when worn.

Formula overview

$ 32.00 / 0.14 oz. – $ 228.57 per ounce

The formula is said to be “moisturizing” and “eight hours” to wear and is available in three finishes (transparent, cream and matte). The cream and matt tones are highly pigmented, while the transparent finish is of medium and buildable coverage.

The texture of the cream finish was slightly creamy, light and not too thin or too thick, so that it was pleasant, evenly applied and flattered on the lips. The matte finish was a bit thicker and “heavier” by comparison, although it was still easy to wear, and it had more of a satin finish to begin with, which dulled away after an hour or two. The transparent finish was softer and had a glossier finish with translucency, but wasn’t so transparent that all shades would look the same.

Most shades did not last for eight hours on me, although the wearing time was closer to four to six hours, with most medium and deeper shades lasting five to six hours and the lighter shades and sheer finishing colors lasting closer to four hours. The formula was moisturizing on all three finishes.

There was a noticeable, powdery-floral scent that sometimes easily translated into a taste. It was a more fragrant product that I smelled for a few hours in the carrier, not just in the tube or when first applied.

Lancome Sweet Almond (245) L’Absolu Rouge Moisturizing lipstick ($ 32.00 for 0.14 oz.) Is a muted, medium rose brown with subtle, warm undertones and lighter, warmer pearls. It had a more metallic finish that didn’t emphasize my lip lines as it could have been, but it pulled into my deeper lip lines enough to be barely noticeable in person (and more noticeable in the close-up photo). .

The lipstick had a smooth, slightly creamy consistency that was thinner without being too sticky, so it was evenly applied and comfortable to use in a liquid stroke, but it had good adhesion for prolonged wear. It had an opaque pigmentation that stayed fine for five hours and felt slightly moisturizing over time.
