If you are a glossy lip lover, I have something exciting to share with you.  Lancôme is releasing a new fabulous range!  Long-wearing shine and colour, with buildable intensity tailored to suit everyone, LANCÔME L’ABSOLU LACQUER (£23)

First thing I have to mention of course is the beautiful and luxurious packaging these lacquers are housed in.  Definitely flaunt worthy!

Now let’s talk formula!  L’Absolu Lacquer is an innovative oil in water emulsion which is lightweight and non-sticky, providing up to 6 hours of wear.  The lacquer creates a glossy film of colour making it easy to adjust the intensity the way you want it!

  • One coat for a glossy, easy to wear tint/stain
  • Two coats for a more vibrant finish
  • Three coats for full impact and vivid colour payoff

I find the applicator easy to use; I can define and spread the product out effortlessly.  The formula is enriched with glycerin, ensuring your lips feel hydrated throughout the day.  The texture is lovely, thin and lightweight.  It is very comfortable to wear, with a fluid and flexi feel on the lips.

I have shades 308 Let Me Shine and 515 Be Happy.  Both of which I really like.

  • Let Me Shine is a light mauve with micro shimmers,  a perfect glossy nude shade for me
  • Be Happy is just as the name implied, happy and bright!  It’s a beautiful orangey red that doesn’t make my teeth appear yellow.  With 3 coats, the pigment packs a punch!  Opaque like a liquid lipstick!  I know what lip product I will be wearing this Spring and Summer!

Both shades wear extremely well.  Once applied, I didn’t notice much feathering which is fantastic.  They stay perfect and look freshly applied all day!  Super glossy and long lasting!  They do transfer slightly if your lips touch anything.  I love the beautiful stain they leave behind too!

You can always get a more defined look by outlining your lips with a lip liner or layering the lacquer on a lipstick for even more impact.

Below are the swatches taken indoors in natural lighting.

Final thoughts

I adore the formula of Lancôme L’Absolu Lacquer.  A lip lacquer that combines the comfort and shine of a gloss, the pigment of a lipstick and the lasting power of a stain!  My kind of lip product!

L’Absolu Lacquer is available in 30 shades of Pinks, Berry, Reds and Nudes.  One for every occasion!

Available exclusively in Selfridges on 14th March and available nationwide on 28th March 2018.

What’s your preference when it comes to lip products?  Are you a shiny, glossy lip lover?
