My Thoughts

I was super drawn to the packaging, as were my followers on my Instagram!  Check out the reaction on this post.  Lancôme has totally nailed it with the packaging, luxurious and elegant – handbag and Instagram worthy!

Now let’s talk about the formula! I’m happy to report that L’Absolu Rouge Intimatte offers a non-drying, soft matte finish.  I find the colour payoff amazing and buildable.  The texture feels thin and velvety.  In addition, they are super easy to apply, glide smoothly over my lips without any tugging.  I love that the finish is lightweight and comfortable.  The longevity is fabulous too.

I think Lancôme has succeeded in formulating the texture and finish of L’Absolu Rouge Intimatte lipsticks.  I definitely feel glamorous yet intimate, alluring with them on!

Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Intimatte Lipsticks (£27) are available now at:

They will be available at retailers nationwide from 25th November 2020.

Much love always,
