It was a long awaited lip stick of Lancôme Rouge In Love which was launched in the US in January and late May this year in Malaysia. I have the full swatches available, here if you would like to check what shades available in Malaysia.
‘A wardrobe for lips, Rouge In Love is available in 27 captivating shades. Each one has its own name, its own story…Inspired by three different moments during the day of a modern and stylish young women the color palette is divided into three color universes.’ – Lancôme
During the launch, we were given one lipstick each with a mini Bi-Facil Double Action Makeup Remover. I received the shade in 210M Rose en Deshabillé, which is the lightest shade from Jolis Matin theme.
The designation of the lipstick package has a classic vibe yet still looking luxurious. On the top, embedded with Lancôme rose logo and at the base of the lipstick embedded with Lancôme’s name. The silver blushed metal cap with the name Rouge In Love and dotted line in red is simple and elegant.
Here is a close swatch of Rose en Deshabillé, its a very sheer pink shade with fine shimmers.
Here is a before and after, I have quite pigmented lips and the corner of my lips are a tad darker. The lipstick appears glossy on my lips and the darkness of my lips are still showing. Below are the ingredients listing.
Octyldodecanol, Diisostearyl Malate, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Lanolin Liquida/Lanolin Oil, Isopropyl Lanolate, Acetylated Lanolin, Polyethylene, Hydrogenated Coco-Glycerides, Phenyl Trimethicone, Cera Microcristallina/Microcrystalline Wax, Calcium Aluminium Borosilicate, Tin Oxide, C18-36 Acid Triglyceride, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Sodium Hyalluronate, Silica, Silica Dimethy Silylate, Alumina, Isostearyl Alcohol, Synthetic Flurhlopite, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Polyethylene Terephthalate, Acrylates Copolymer, Bht, [+/- May Contain CI15850/Red 6, CI 15850/Red 7 Lake, CI 15985/Yellow 6 Lake, CI 19140/Yellow 5 Lake, CI 42090/Blue 1 Lake, CI 45380/Red 22 Lake, CI 45410/Red 28 Lake, CI 75740/Carmine, CI 77492/Iron Oxides, CI 77891/ Titanium Dioxide, Mica]
The lipstick is buttery and easy to glide on my lips. I noticed the moisturizing effect lasted at about approximately 2 hours and reapplying it will help to revamp the moisture for my lips. I hardly measure for the lasting power on sheer lipsticks because it usually gets off without me noticing. This shade does made me look pale and it has cool undertone to it hence clashes with my warm undertone.
I would want to love this lipstick but what we have in Malaysia is in Asian formulation, made in Japan. I was hoping so hard that we’ll get what’s in the US and these lipsticks are much sheerer than I expected. If you’re more on pigmented lipstick and still want to try Rouge In Love, you could try the Boudoir Time and Tonight is My Night theme. The shades are much intense and pigmented. I could still work on this lip shade with smokey and edgy eye makeup. The shelf life of this lipstick is for a year upon opening.
