Si Seulement (277)

Lancome Si Seulement (277) L’Absolu Rouge Sheer Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, mediump pink with subtle, neutral-to-warm undertones and a luminous finish. It had semi-sheer to medium, buildable pigmentation with a smooth, lightly emollient texture that was almost balm-like but thinner and not as slippery. It remained comfortable to apply and to wear but stayed on better than the typical lip balm. This shade lasted well for four hours and felt lightly moisturizing over time.

Formula Overview

$32.00/0.14 oz. - $228.57 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "hydrating" with "eight-hour" wear that is available in three finishes (sheer, cream, and matte). The cream and matte shades finishes highly pigmented, while the sheer finish is more medium, buildable in coverage.

The texture of the cream finish was lightly creamy, lightweight, and not too thin or too thick, so they applied comfortably, evenly, and were flattering on lips. The matte finish was slightly thicker and "heavier" in comparison, though still lightweight to wear, and it had more of a satin finish initially that wore down to matte after an hour or two. The sheer finish was more emollient and had a shinier finish with translucency but wasn't so sheer that all the shades would look the same on.

The majority of shades did not last eight hours on me, though the wear was more between four and six hours with most mid-depth and deeper shades lasting five to six hours and the lighter shades and sheer finish shades lasting closer to four hours. The formula was hydrating across all three finishes.

There was a noticeable, powdery floral scent that translated slightly into a taste at times. It was a stronger scented product where I smelled it for a few hours into the wear, not just in the tube or when initially applied.

Henne (283)

Lancome Henne (283) L’Absolu Rouge Hydrating Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with moderate, warm undertones and lighter, warmer bronze pearl that gave it a slightly metallic, luminous finish. The consistency was moderately emollient with some slip–which made it more noticeable in its glide and creaminess compared to most shades within the range that I’ve tested–and it did not apply as well to the inner area of my lips.

The color itself had semi-opaque color coverage that went on evenly with only a smidgen of product getting into my deeper lip lines, which was only apparent in the close-up photos but not something I detected in person. It wore well for four and a half hours and was moisturizing while worn.

I am glad Lancome is revamping their L’Absolu Rouge lipsticks with more staying power and moisture. These should do better for their $33.00 price. New shades would be welcomed.

I’m not happy about it …I looooovee the moisture of Absolu Rouge!
I had my one fave it’s gone…we all know how that feels.
But being a lip pie addict I’ll give it a try. Wish it was on that good sale they had! And yes, there should be more shades. I’m sure more will be adddes. Thanks Tempalia..I stumbled on this! Love the first shade and heading over to their site right now lol. I’m sorry I cannot edit in here and must voice text due to my shoulder pain! Hope you get the gist 😉
