Forget about wearing your heart on your sleeve; thanks to Lancôme, you can now wear your mood on your lips. The French beauty giant has just introduced Rouge In Love ($25) a collection of radiant, mood-inspired lipsticks that promise up to six hours of wear.
Lancôme positions this lipstick as a “wardrobe of color” for your lips, which promises featherlight texture and high potency color. The entire experience, from the outer silver foil packaging to the sleek full-sized bullet, is a journey in luxury. Another example of its attention to detail is the stocking-inspired red stitching accents on the back of the bullet.
Rouge In Love is categorized by three different “moods,” which encompass the 21 shade offerings. Each of the “moods” include shades from the Brown/Neutrals, Pinks/Berries, and Reds/Corals color ranges.
Jolis Matins: Intended for morning wear, this group of colors veers toward the natural. They have just a hint of color via tone-on-tone particles and are identified with the prefix M.
Boudoir Time: This punchy group of shades is inspired by special moments in the late afternoon that are shared with friends. They have contrasting pearl particles and are identified with the prefix B.
Tonight is My Night: These glamorous evening shades are laden with intense color and feature golden pearl particles. They are identified with the prefix N.
The wear and tear on the lipstick is quite decent, and while the color didn’t last for six hours on my lips, it definitely is more long lasting than the other lipsticks I’ve worn by the brand. The reason you’ll choose this lipstick is its emollience and radiance: the pearl particles shimmer in the light and will give your lips beautiful tone and texture. Reparative oils nourish the lips while the medium to full coverage color leaves lips shiny and glossy.
The long wear property stems from a new generation of polymers. The formula also features a shiny silicon that gives lips the brilliance of a gloss. This is an excellent choice for those who seek shine, radiance and a medium to full coverage lipstick in a range of long-lasting shades.
