Lancome L'Absolu Rouge Lipstick Swatches| 122 Indecise & 318 Rose Rendez-Vous
When you open up a PR package to reveal not only two beautiful new lipsticks from  Lancome, but also some pretty delicious pink macarons, if that's not a good day I don't know what is! 

Lancome have re-introduced 36 of their L'Absolu Rouge lipsticks now available in Sheer, Matte and Cream formulas, and packaged in a new sleek black and gold case with the signature rose logo detail placed on top. The design is so classy, and I love that you simply click the rose which pops open the lipstick tube, similar to the Chanel Rouge Allure lipsticks I believe.

The shades I have are  318 Rose Rendez-Vous which is a pretty vibrant pink in a cream formula and  122 Indecise, a sheer classic red. Both lipsticks are lovely and smooth to apply and feel luxuriously creamy on the lips, although I've not yet had a chance to test them out through the day (I'm writing this on the day I received them - keen!) although they did wipe off of my lips very easily, so I don't expect they'd be the most long lasting. Rose Rendez-Vous has a little bit of shimmer to it which goes perfectly with the vivid pink shade of the lipstick, and was a lot more pigmented that I expected. I did swatch Indecise a few times in the picture to show the true shade, it is quite sheer as the formula would suggest, but perfect for those that might be a little nervous to rock the bright red lipsticks. I think it looks really pretty and fresh looking!

What do you think?

    1. A little out of my nude pink comfort zone but very pretty haha! xo

  2. What a lovely PR package to receive! Both of these shades are quite bright, but so pretty. Sometimes it's nice to wear something a little more sheer that isn't so pigmented and in your face! I'm all over the liquid lipsticks at the moment and I have seriously neglected all of my 'normal' lipsticks, this post has inspired me to bring them back out again :) xo

    1. That's exactly what I was thinking that everyone's so obsessed with liquid lipsticks at the moment that you forget how nice (& more comfortable) a creme/sheer formula is! It's always nice to switch it up :-) xo

  3. Pretty! Would love to see how they look on the lips.

    1. They look pretty similar as the swatches to be honest, except the red a little more sheer, although it is buildable xo
