By now, the Jason Wu for Lancôme Pre-Fall 2104 collection should be hitting your local counters, and I finally had a chance to pick up the other item I was craving, the L’Absolu Rouge in Hibiscus Pink.
This color was calling my name, and even though this is a Pre-Fall collection, this Hibiscus Pink shade is totally what summer is all about!
$30 is a bit pricey for me in terms of lipstick right now, but I couldn’t say no the packaging and the color. These are boxes I will definitely be keeping! I know it is literally just cardboard but I can’t help it.
For those unfamiliar with the L’Absolu Rouge formula, it has moisture boosting Pro-Xylane as well as Vitamin E to keep the formula moist for 8 hours. I experienced about 6 and a half hours of good wear before it started to fade. Because of the color, it does fade in a flattering way, though.
This is very opaque in one go, and has a slight sheen to it that makes lips look, as well as feel, comfortable. It does have a strong floral scent, so please be aware if you are sensitive to smells. It fades after a half hour on the lips, but is very noticeable upon first application.
This is bright without being too neon or in your face, but still very relevant for this season. Jason Wu and Lancôme really nailed this collection, in my opinion, and I know this will be a staple lipstick for me well into the Fall! I can’t wait to bring this one with me to London!
