Lancome Rouge in Love 159B

Last week I did a little shopping. I got the advice from the very lovely Andreea from Your Beauty (go visit her here - she is one of my favourite peeps) about Lancome's new Rouge In Love Lipsticks.  These are interesting little bullets because although the colour is very glossy and smooth they are long wear lipsticks which promise 6 hours wear.  You might have seen Emma Watson looking pouty and perfect in recent Lancome adds?  Well this is her advertising Rouge in Love.

There are 24 different shades in the range but what is interesting is they have categorised them into 3 different styles:

Jolis Matins (Sweet Morning): Prêt à porter colour; fresh and wearable to bring out your playful side.

Boudoir time: Vibrant and on-trend; chic colours you can wear day-to-night.

Tonight is My Night: Rich and sexy shades for your transformation into a seductress.

I think its a nice concept to separate the shades like this, although I didn't know about it when I was buying the lipstick - I just went "OOOO pretty".

I picked up the shade 159B (the B indicating that its Boudoir time) which is the prettiest raspberry sheer pinky red.  The packaging is a sturdy silver bullet which is sleek and pretty.
When swatched the shade is unexpected - the colour appears sheer like a juicy wash but when the glossy finish fades the colour/stain really does last.  Lancome seem to have managed to turn the lipgloss stains that a lot of brands have been releasing onto its head and make it a lipstick.

I cant remember the last time I bought something from Lancome but the Rouge in Love really impressed me so I will be putting Lancome on my makeup route.

Lancome Rouge in Love lipsticks cost €25.00 and are available from Lancome counters.
