Lancome Groupie Lipstick

The Summer Season: Lancome Groupie Lipstick

Lancome Groupie Color Design Lipstick ($22.00) is a deep copper-bronzed pinky-red. It’s not quite a full-on red, and the copper-bronze shimmer made it feel like summer to me, even though the color was just borderline “summer.” It’s a rich, opaque color with a frost/metallic finish. It could even double as a holiday-esque lipstick with a lil’ red gloss slicked on top. It didn’t have any taste/smell either, which was surprisingly, as I know some other Lancome lipsticks do! The wear time was about average here–three hours before it started to noticeably fade.

Is this the right bronze lipstick for you? Would you wear it?

The Summer Season is a series of posts featuring bright, vibrant shades of coral, orange, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for a summer of fun — that runs through July 2010.

    This looks like summer to me. It is a shade that girls in the caribbean wear.

  3. Annie S

    could you do an updated makeup collection/storage post or vid?

  4. packie

    I think it similar to thrill lipstick. Do u think they are dupe?

  5. Kimberly

    I think this is very pretty but… I would probably wear this more in the fall.

    i never buy shimmer lipsticks because im afraid it looks too 80s. but this actually looks really pretty

  8. it looks too orange is it like that in real life ?

    To me it looks a lot like one of the lipsticks that just came out with the To the Beach collection. But maybe a bit more red.

    • Wendy M.

      Yeah, it sort of resembles Thrills.
      Christine, I’m so jealous that you pull off the frosty lip so well! 😉

    • AmyVA

      I thought the same thing at first too, but I think Thrills from To the Beach is actually several shades lighter and with a more pronounced golden shimmer. From this picture, I definitely prefer Thrills.

    I have this. It looked so different in the promos…I was disappointed, but I can still make it work.

  11. Tiffany

    what a stunning shot of you :)

  12. Riki

    Everything looks so great on your gorgeous lips!
    But for a pale girl like me it’d look like I’m bleeding sparkles or something lol

    would you say this lipstick is like the new mac lipstick thrills? If you had to pick one of them thrills or this one from lancome which one would you suggest to pick up?

    • I’d get Thrills — Thrills is definitely lighter, almost more metallic in the finish. It has more of that duochrome look – this is redder and has more glitter/shimmer than just sheen.

    this color looks like thrill~~~

    I bought this lipstick and I haven’t quite figured out how I want to wear it, it’t kinda of loud for me but my husband liked it when I tested it at the counter. I got it to go with my pop n green quad but it dosnt work for me and I tried it with Chanel Plein Soliel quad and it was copper over load. What eyeshadow are you wearing it with?

  16. Cheyenne

    I think this is really pretty but I have a NYX lipstick just like it.

  17. stefani

    I wasn’t sure about the color on Sephora’s website, so I luckily came across your website and read reviews and looked at swatches…thank you so much for being so helpful! I am the proud owner of Groupie!
