LANCÔME 'ROUGE IN LOVE' LIPSTICKS - £21* each
I have a wide collection of make up such a £1.50 pressed powder from ELF and then £11 eye shadows from MAC. Most people say you get what you pay for, which I think can be applied a lot of the time but I've paid a lot for certain products which ended up being rubbish. There's a reason why high end make up has the price tag it does, sometimes I think it's justified and others not so much. But these lipsticks are worth every single penny, they deserve the high end title and I think everyone should own at least one in their make up bag.
The 'Rouge In Love' lipstick collection from Lancome has over 20 shades which have been categorized in 3 moods: Jolis Matins: Fresh shades for daytime wear. Jolis Matins shades are identified with the letter M in the shade number. Boudoir Time: Pop shades for cocktail hour. Boudoir Time shades are identified with the letter B in the shade number. Tonight is My Night: Intense shades for magical nights. Tonight is My Night shades are identified with the letter N in the shade number. As you can see I have ones from the Boudoir Time , the first being a nice neutral pinky/taupe colour called 'Lasting Kiss' which is my most worn one. The next two are 'Rouge In Love' (worn here) and 'Rose Boudoir' (worn here) which are very similar in colour with rich pink undertones, but Rose Boudoir is a little softer in shade. Finally there's 'Violette Coquette' which is a rich purple colour which I must admit I was a little unsure about at first, but it's a lot lighter on the lips (worn here) and I love it!
These lipsticks are far from your typical lipstick texture, they have a balm like feel, aren't dry in the slightest and they leave your lips feeling hydrated. They has a really long wear time too, maybe not the 6 hours as advertised but you can certainly eat and drink with the product on and the pigmentation is powerful. It's a very light product which I really like, there have been times where I've forgotten I've actually had the product on! I've had these lipsticks for a few weeks now and I must admit all of my other most used lipsticks have taken a back seat. I think they're brilliant value for money and I already have another couple of shades on my wish list!
