Okay so we all know the struggle of wearing lipstick with masks, but on the plus side, it looks like Valentine’s Day will most likely be held at home.
I have quite the collection of lipsticks, and most of them aren’t getting nearly enough wear, but at the same time, I do love adding new ones into my collection. I’m such a sucker for matte lipsticks, so when I saw Lancome’s L’Absolu Rouge Intimatte Matte Lipstick (C$42), I was instantly sold.
I’ve tried their other L’Absolu Rouge formulas before and love everything from the packaging to how creamy these feel. The Intimatte Matte version is, you guessed it, matte, and is the newest formula in the range. These lipsticks dress lips in soft colour which blurs around the edges, so no lip liner is needed. The finish is a powder matte, and unlike other matte lipsticks out there, these are actually incredibly creamy to apply and feel soft and nourishing on the lips.
The formula in these include hyaluronic acid for moisture, pro-xylane, and rose extract, so they are nice and nourishing. It also features similar packaging to their other L’Absolu range in that you press down on the button of the top, which releases the bottom part of the lipstick.
Lancome sent over three shades from their 16-range collection and all of them are so perfect for Valentine’s Day. Aside from pinks and reds, their shade range varies from nudes (my personal favourite) to even a lilac purple.
I really like these and am impressed with the formula. I also love the blurring effect on the lips, which makes them really pretty to wear. It kind of gives you a more natural finish, if that makes sense. Of course, these don’t dry down, so you do run the risk of transfer, but honestly, I don’t mind a little reapplication, especially since my lipsticks aren’t getting the same amount of wear that they got pre-COVID.
