The L'Absolu Rouge formula is supposed to have "high-color payoff" that's hydrating and available in three finishes (sheer, cream, and matte). Of the few shades I have tried, it seems like a more pigmented formulation with a lightly hydrating formula and smooth, velvety textures that are easy to work with. They have a soft, floral scent but no discernible taste.

L'Absolu Rouge enables you to envelope your lips in rich, satiny color with this deeply hydrating lipstick. Infused with moisture-boosting Pro-Xylane™, the formula imparts high-color payoff without dryness, leaving lips moist, soft, and comfortable for up to eight hours. It’s enriched with antioxidant-rich Vitamin E to help keep lips safe from environmental aggressors so that they look and feel healthier day after day.
