Lancome L'Absolu Roses

When Lancome release new products, they are exciting, you have to mention Juicy Shakers.  Over the last few months, I have been using two of the L'absolut Glosses which are available in 14 shades in a sheer, cream or matte finishes.

Packaged in a transparent bottle with a black lacquered lid which is stamped with a golden rose to match the golden lettering of the brand name, these glosses make quite the statement.  Once opened, the glosses come with a precise applicator which is designed to ensure you pick up enough product to coat your lips.

I have shades 317 and 382 which sit in the Lip Cream and Sheer ranges.  The Lip Cream range is designed to give a comfortable balmy base yet pigmented for buildable colour with a subtle, shiny finish and the Gloss Sheer gives a non-sticky base which is enriched with pigments & pearls for translucent colour with a shine finish.

Pourquoi Pas 317 sits in the sheer range and is described as being a demure ingenue rose shade with shine. Not only is it a beautiful bright pink.

Non-sticky on contact, it glides onto the lips and once there it feels lightweight and doesn't transfer.  It can be worn alone or over the top of your favourite lipstick for some extra shine.

Grafitti 382 sits within the cream range and this is a really bright pink shade and what you see in the tube is the shade you get when applied.

With a balm like texture, I love how hydrating this lip cream is, non-sticky or tacky, it glides onto the lips for a beautiful finish.

I have never been the biggest fan of lip glosses. One thing which really puts me off is having something sticky or tacky on my lips or as though I have rubbed a Pritt Stick onto my lips to then spend half my time picking my hair off them.

For me, a gloss has to be none of those things, it just needs to be glossy and have a shine to it, something Lancome have managed to do with different finishes.  Both of these products are fairly long lasting and you get between 4-5 hours wear time before you need to reapply and even if pink isn't quite your shade, there will be a version of pink which will work for you.  I prefer Pourquoi Pas of the two shades I have and it is the one I have worn the most.

Priced around £21, these glosses are widely available online and in stores such as John Lewis and Lookfantastic.
