Lancome Pink Sapphire L’Absolu Rouge Lipstick ($29.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a rich shade of slightly cooled medium pink with no shimmer, just a glossy sheen. My favorite part about this particular shade of pink is that it’s not too cool–it’s not severely blue-based, which makes it wearable by both warm and cool skin tones with ease. It has nearly opaque color pay off, but more importantly, it makes lips look lush, rich, and smooth. The L’Absolu Rouge formula is silky smooth, creamy, and very moisturizing with nice wear–the more pigmented shades wearing five to six hours for me.
