Best & Worst | Lancome Le Metallique Lipglosses

Lancome Le Metallique Lip Lacquers
Lancome Le Metallique Lip Lacquers

Lancome Le Metallique Lip Lacquers ($22.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a new lipgloss formula that is available in 13 shades. The quality was a bit all over the map, and a lot of the range lacked the coverage promised by the brand. They had a very high-gloss, shiny finish, and they had longer wear, as they were quite tacky (which may or may not be a deal breaker for you!). I think if you like tacky, thicker gloss formulas with medium coverage, lots of shine, and fine shimmer, you might like the formula.

Lancome Crystallized Cobalt (10) Le Metallique Metallic Lip Lacquer ($22.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium blue with lighter blue and silver pearl. It appeared brighter swatched than on the lips, as it ended up being semi-sheer and sort of turned my lips into a “I’ve been eating a blue popsicle” kind of color. While the gloss had greater density and was thicker, it managed to find its way into every lip line on my lips. On top of that, the color did not apply evenly and looked horrendous. The color lasted for five hours and was hydrating, so I guess all wasn’t lost. I give credit to Lancome for doing a blue gloss in the first place, and it was translucent, but if it’s going to look this terrible, I’m not sure you’re really doing your brand any favors.

The Le Metallique formula is supposed to have “full-coverage” with a “rich, creamy texture” that is hydrating and long-wearing. First and foremost, if you do not like tacky gloss, you’ll want to stay far away from these; the formula is very tacky and is a thicker, denser formula. They are longer wearing as a result, though, and most shades fell within four to six hours of wear for me and retain a really high-shine, high-gloss finish that almost looks wet and lasts throughout the wear time. Most shades were semi-opaque to opaque, but as the formula was thicker, I would hesitate to add more product to get more coverage. They seemed to have no discernible scent or taste to me.

Lancome Purple Onyx (07) Le Metallique Metallic Lip Lacquer ($22.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a blackened plum with fine gold, violet, and burgundy pearl. It had semi-opaque color coverage, but it did not apply well–it was uneven and all of the color pooled into my lip lines. The gloss still had a tackier, thicker texture, though it was long-wearing at five and a half hours. It was hydrating and comfortable to wear, at least.

Lancome Magnetic Mauve (04) Le Metallique Metallic Lip Lacquer ($22.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium rose pink with warm undertones and lighter pink and gold pearl. It had medium coverage, so it fell rather short of its full coverage claim. The texture was tacky, light-medium to medium in weight (definitely noticeable on), but it didn’t slide around. The gloss stayed put for five hours and maintained its glossy shine throughout the wear. It was moisturizing over time as well.

Lancome Polished Rose (01) Le Metallique Metallic Lip Lacquer ($22.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a medium rosy pink with cooler undertones and warmer gold and pink pearl. It had medium, somewhat buildable coverage with a very glossy finish. The consistency was light-medium in thickness, tacky, and did not leave “lines” if I pressed my lips together. I did have a bit of the pinker base settle into my lip lines, though. The gloss lasted for five hours and was hydrating over time.
