Crème de Marron (112)

Lancome Crème de Marron (112) L’Absolu Rouge Cream Lipstick (2022) ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a darker, reddish-copper base with lighter gold and copper pearl throughout. It had opaque color coverage that applied comfortably and smoothly across my lips as the texture was lightweight, emollient but not heavy, and easy to work with. This shade lasted well for five hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.

FYI, this shade name existed previously but the actual colors are night and day different!

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.

French Coeur (118)

Lancome French Coeur (118) L’Absolu Rouge Cream Lipstick (2022) ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a rich, deeper orange with warm, red undertones and a cream finish. The consistency was smooth, lightly emollient, and thin without feeling clingy, which helped the product go on evenly but soften my lip lines. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on nicely for five hours and felt moisturizing while worn.

I absolutely love both of these shades – Creme de Marron is just perfect and I may be able to get it here in Aus (I think it’s about $57 or $60 though), so I would definitely have swatch it myself for that price.
I really tried hard to get a similar shade you reviewed – Mars – but just could not without paying an incredible amount of international shipping costs.
French Coeur is another favourite shade – but I have a good dupe in CP’s Foolish.

Crème De Marron is so me. I love and live for frosted lipsticks. This is a gorgeous color. I may blind buy and pray it’s not too drying.

Creme De Marron is just gorgeous, i will look at in person this weekend at Ulta. So different from the previous Creme De marron formula.
