BECAUSE SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO CREATE YOUR OWN SUNSHINE
Berry coloured lipstick shades are usually worn in autumn but I cannot stop using my new Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge ‘Perfect Fig’ lipstick and prefer to throw autumn rule out of the window. The colour is a medium brown based plum colour, works very well with my complexion and is versatile which means that I can wear it with almost any outfit and on almost any occasion.
I usually try to limit wearing stronger coloured lipsticks to work but I wore the ‘Perfect Fig’ shade recently and it was perfectly appropriate.
I discovered the L’Absolu Rouge collection in a department store whilst purchasing some Lancôme Dewy Mist and the saleswoman easily convinced me to try out a few colours. Sigh! This ‘victim of consumerism’ issue of mine makes me a such an easy target, that it sometimes appears that people can smell my submission from miles away. The lipstick comes in typical Lancôme elegant packaging and carries a rosy and sweet scent which is not too overpowering. It feels smooth once applied, it is very moisturising, long-lasting and is the first lipstick I do not need to base with primer before applying.
Another advantage is that it contains sunscreen, Vitamin E and a ‘Moisture Locker Complex’ which guarantees soft as well gorgeous lips protected from any harsh environmental factors. I usually opt for MAC matte lipsticks but L’Absolu Rouge’s lipstick collection has great texture and great wear! For those who prefer to stay away from darker colours, you can try out and enjoy the other 40 different shades available.
