Lancome Color Design Mattes and Creme Brillance Lip
How was your weekend? I hope fabulous! It was sunny on Saturday and rainy on Sunday. Gotta love this spring weather.
I previously blogged about Lancome new Color Design Matte Lipsticks and I was super eager to try them. The good people at Lancome sent me out a couple of tubes to test. They sent me Bronze Show, a brownish matte color and Stylista, a pink matte. Lancome also sent me a tube of L’Absolu Creme De Brillance, which is a lip cream that is a cross between a lip balm and a lip gloss. I received a tube in the color Rose Mythique, kind of a hot pinkish red color. Check out the swatches:
Pros: The Mattes are absolutely amazing. They are rich and creamy but look like a dry matte. I don’t know how they did it, but it is simply innovative.
Cons: However, both the Bronze Show and the Stylista color look horrible on me. I have a medium dark skin tone and as you can see from the pics, the Bronze Show is too brown and the Stylista is too pink. However these colors would look AMAZING on Divas with fairer skin tones. The collection does contain a true red and I would like to see how it will look on me. Going to hit up Macy’s this weekend! Yes this collection is available exclusively at Macy’s.
Also I tested out the L’Absolu Creme De Brillance Lip Cream. It is formulated with Pro-Xylane Concentrated and it claims to visibly replenish lips. The texture is super creamy and it does have the feel of a very hydrating lip balm. And it is super shiny like a lip gloss. But once again, I found that the color did not work with my skin tone at all. But it would look great on a person with an olive or fair skin tone. However, there are other colors in the line that I think would look great on me.
All in all I think the products are super, but I just need to find the right shade! LOL! Have you tried any of Lancome’s new lip products?
