Product Review and Event News: Lancôme Rouge in Love

Friday, April 27, 2012

I was invited to the Lancôme Rouge in Love launch yesterday, where we were introduced to the latest range of lipsticks brought out by Lancôme in collaboration with the gorgeous Emma Watson.

I was given the Rouge in Love in the colour 163M, a gorgeous red with a very slightly blue undertone.

Lancôme: Love your lips! Finally, the long wear lipcolor you'll love to wear. This collection of radiant, high potency colors, with up to 6 hours of wear, is surprisingly featherlight, offering delightful comfort.
Lancôme have chosen a unique way to present these 21 shades - they have been separated into Jolis Matins (Fresh shades for daytime wear), Boudoir Time (Pop shades for cocktail hour), and Tonight is My Night (Intense shades for night time wear).


I have no doubt that Lancôme put a lot of thought and care into the packaging - there are intricate details embossed into both the cover and the base of the lipstick. It's not my favourite design, but I appreciate when a brand takes the time and effort to product a beautifully packaged product.


The lipstick that I was given is highly pigmented and so incredibly smooth and creamy. I'm not bothered by 'heavy' lipsticks, but for those who are, it is very light and doesn't have that thick, heavy feel. Here are a few pictures of the product in action on my lips - one with filter (because I am thoroughly obsessed with Instagram), and one 

I recommend applying this lipstick with a lip brush if you're going for the darker shades, but you shouldn't have any problems with bleeding because this lipstick is so lightweight.


Immediately upon application, my lips feel moisturised and the lipstick itself looks glossy and thick and beautiful. It takes me about two swipes to achieve maximum coverage and intensity
With creamy lipsticks, I often have this problem where the wettest patch of my lips (the inside of the middle of my bottom lip) is unable to hold on to the product, resulting in an empty patch on my lip which is visible even with my mouth closed. This lipstick covers that area without being too drying, which is a big bonus.

I wore this lipstick the entire morning and through lunch, and even after a meal and a hot drink, this lipstick still looks exactly the same as when I first applied it.

If this piqued your interest, there is an interesting event that you guys in Melbourne and Sydney might want to check out tomorrow!

Come along to the beauty levels of Myer Sydney (George St) and Myer Melbourne (Bourke St) from 12pm to have your very own Rouge In Love moment this Saturday the 28th of April. Have your colour matched and your moment captured on the Rouge In Love photo booth, which will be uploaded immediately to your Facebook to share with your friends.

These lipsticks retail for AUD 45 each.
