Lancome L'Absolu Rouge & Colour Fever Gloss

I think Lancome have adapted their image over the last few years, whilst still maintaining the classical, universally appeal, the products look much more modern with a sleeker design. I recently bought some of the Alber Elbaz collaboration products which I'll show you soon but today I wanted to show you some lip items that I was very pleased to be given the opportunely to try.

I received Topaze Extase #181(tomatoe red)
 Rubis Exquis #182 (cherry red)

and Grenat Delicat #183 (fuchsia)

All shades have a faint golden shimmer. These are without doubt vibrant shades. The colour is saturated, there is no messing about here. The below swatches is of two light swipes.
Unlike a lot of high pigment lipsticks these do not drag, instead you get a smooth application combined with a comfortable feel, neither do they have too much slip so that the colour migrates.They also have an excellent wear time. I always admire bold, daring shades on others, but seldom am I able to pull them off myself. Though I think the colours lush, I can't quite get use to the intense shades against my pale skin so I tend to wear these blotted down as a stain.

I also got a colour fever gloss in shade Precious Beige #206. This is my first gloss in this formula and I pleased that it was not thick nor too tacky/sticky. It feels hydrating and for a gloss has a very good wear time. The colour is a sheer beige with a pink opalescence and has a slight frost finish, nice on its own for a natural look or good as a topper in the middle on the lip to add fullness.

The lip products can be viewed at Harrods,  here
