AMW Reviews: Lancome's Rouge In Love

I have a couple of Lancome Lipsticks which I save only for clients!  I tend to pick it up for my more mature, classy clients as that is what I feel about most Lancome lipsticks. 

Not until I saw this ad...what's in my mind?

"Emma Watson!  Don't do that do your Lancome lipstick!"  

*laughs* With Emma Watson as their model, the lip colors must be hip, fun and vibrant!  After a quick visit at the Lancome Counter at Rustan's Shangri-La Mall a couple of weeks ago, I'm happy to say, I'm right (again) *beams* :P !



Lancome says ---
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.
Discover the lipcolor that describes you best and let your lipcolor show your mood, any time of the day.

Categorized in 3 moods:
  • Jolis Matins: Fresh shades for daytime wear. Jolis Matins shades are identified with the letter M in the shade number.
  • Boudoir Time: Pop shades for cocktail hour. Bourdoir Time shades are identified with the letter B in the shade number.
  • Tonight is My Night: Intense shades for magical nights. Tonight is My Night shades are identified with the letter N in the shade number.


AMW says ---
Pros
  • Smooth and creamy.
  • Doesn't settle in lip lines.
  • Gives moisture on lips.
  • Nice, "true to tube" , pigmented shades.
  • Has wide array of shades good for day 'til night.
  • I saw the full sized packaging at Lancome Counter and they don't look boring!
  • Stays on even after drinking and eating!  I'm surprised I came home with still a good hint of lip color even though it was completely a "no retouch night".
  • I believe this line is permanent.
Cons
  • Price.  Though the concept of changing lipsticks depending on the time of day is wonderful, it is a bit pricey to do so.
Overall
Pigmented lip color that hugs your lips and stays for longer hours and moisturizes the lips blurring out lip lines.

Tips
  • I usually advise readers to apply lipstick with a lip brush but not Lancome's Rouge In Love lipsticks, they are so creamy on tube that I enjoy the feeling of applying it straight from tube to lips!
  • If you are a makeup artist, use a lip brush and wipe before dipping your brush again on the lipstick.
  • For extra plump and shine, add a clear gloss at the center of the lips.
Will I purchase?
Yes.

To whom do I recommend this to?
Daily lipstick wearer.

Where to purchase and how much?
At Lancome counters for Php1,295.00 (approx. $30.00)

132 M
Jolis Matis
This is a great day time lip color that's close to my original lip color.  It has a pale rose pink type of shade that works for an office look, no makeup look or a nice coffee break with friends.

163B
Boudoir Time
A lip color that has enough shine for that late afternoon to night out!  Though this lipstick shade is part of Boudoir Time, I feel applying this shade lightly on lips can still double up as a day time lip color!  This reminded me so much of a Clinique lip color I own called All Heart but this one is a tad bit lighter.


Personally speaking, I think all the lip shades from each category can work on different times!  There's no limit to your makeup creativity!  In simpler terms, Rouge in Love is a permanent line of lipstick from Lancome wherein different age group can enjoy!  There's always a shade for everyone because there's a wide array of shades ranging from pinks, reds, corals, browns and nudes.

Would you change your lip color depending on time of day?
How many times in a day can you change your lip color?


I do change my lip color but it doesn't depend on the time of the day but it depends on the functions I'm attending to!  In a day, the most number of lipstick shades I can change is around 3 --- MAX! 

Share your lipstick stories!  I'd love to hear from you!

Keep smilin'

Stay happy!

    1. Sister! Funny hash tag, you know how we (aunties) like to stay forever young! LOL :) Thanks for the vote, I may have to try on 163 again and again to like it, I guess I'm leaning on the pinks rather than reds!:)
