So this one’s all about the new range of lippies from Lancôme, called Rouge in Love – just the name makes me want to rush out and buy the lot! 24 different colours, split into three different categories or moods:
Jolis – fresh shades perfect for daytime wear, (look for the letter M in the shade number)
Boudoir Time – fabulously chic shades perfect for cocktail hour, (all with the letter B in the shade number)
Tonight is My Night – seriously intense shades, (all with the letter N in the shade number)
Of course, these are just Lancome’s way of grouping them, you can be naughty and wear anyone you like at any time, and I thoroughly recommend you do.
Whichever one you choose, you’ll find them really highly pigmented, giving medium to full coverage, very moisturising thanks to the nourishing oils, and really, really long-wearing. I wore this shade all day, including through lunch, and snacks, and only reapplied once, although I probable didn’t even need to – it was more out of habit than need.
|Looks slightly different in the two close-ups, but that’s just the different light – I promise you it’s the same lipstick!|
The one I’m wearing is 353M, Rose Pitimini, pictured here on its own:
and here on the left, with 146B Miss Coquelicot in the centre and 159B Rouge in Love on the right. These three beauties are forming part of the core of my summer lipstick wardrobe 🙂
(By the way, 159B Rouge In Love is the one Emma Watson, the face of the range, is wearing the ad that’s currently running in all the magazines).
