Coquette (326)

Lancome Coquette (326) L’Absolu Rouge Cream Lipstick (2022) ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brighter, light-medium pink-coral base with lighter, peach and gold shimmer throughout that gave it more of a frosted sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to my lips but wasn’t quite as forgiving of lip lines compared to other shades in the range.

It had a lightweight, lightly emollient consistency that was thin but not clingy in feel. It lasted well for four hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$32.00/0.12 oz. - $266.67 Per Ounce

It was recently reformulated to be even more hydrating with "18 hour comfort" and "8 hour hydration" paired with an "ultra-creamy texture" and "intense color" that gives a "luminous finish." They distinguish the 18-hour and 8-hour claims from it being long-wearing, so presumably they are referring to how one's lips feel after the product as worn away or been removed (after fading).

Most shades had full color payoff in a single layer, while a few shades had to be built up. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and emollient without being too slippery or too thick, so the lipstick applied comfortably across my lips but wasn't prone to settling into my lip lines. The formula was more forgiving of lip texture imperfections and seemed to smooth out my lip lines more often than not.

They have a powdery floral scent, which is noticeable more in the tube than on, but it had a bit of taste initially to me. The updated formula felt very comparable to the last iteration, possibly a little lighter-weight and smoother on my lips. They wore between four and six hours and were hydrating.

Moderato (335)

Lancome Moderato (335) L’Absolu Rouge Cream Lipstick (2022) ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brighter, medium pinky-plum with warm undertones and a cream finish. The lipstick delivered full color coverage in a single pass, which adhered evenly and smoothly to my lips while softening my lip lines.

It had a lightweight, lightly creamy consistency that was thin, but not clingy, and had enough glide not to tug but never felt slippery on. This shade stayed on nicely for four and a half hours and felt moisturizing over time.

Coquette goes to the very essence of me with lipstick. I’m from an old school where we called them frosts. I’ve been wearing coquette for ages. I prefer the old formula, this new formula seems drying after about 20 minutes. Since I live in the country now in The Hudson Valley I have to rely on drugstore dupes often and I can tell you two dupes for this lovely lipstick Coquette are both Revlon 1) Blushing Mauve 2) Blushed. I actually find Revlon more comfortable to wear, a little more slip and zero fragrance.

I have Moderato in the older packaging. It is one of those lipsticks that seems to have a pinky, red, or berry tone, depending what I pair it with. I love the formula and the price is very good for the quality of the product. Thank you for reviewing these. I will be purchasing a couple more in the near future now that you have posted swatches.
