Lancome is probably one of the lipstick brands I’ve always seen in my mom’s vanity table. I basically grew up with it. To date, I still own several Lancome lipsticks, which I usually use on my clients. More than just a force of habit, their lipsticks are really tried and tested. Plus, they never fail to come up with luxurious packaging. 😀

Now, Lancome came out with a new lipstick line- Rouge in Love, catering more for the young. It was one of the highlights at the launch of Lancome’s newest counter in Shangri-la, which I shared in THIS POST. I remember how I kept on swatching on my hand as there are a lot of gorgeous shades! I was given these 2 shades to try out and here’s my take on Lancome’s newest Rouge in Love.

I love it because…

  • my lips have that healthy shine- not the glitter-like sparkle.
  • it’s smooth and creamy to apply.
  • it’s not drying on my lips. It’s moisturizing.
  • it doesn’t feel heavy on the lips.
  • it’s pigmented.
  • it can last for up to 6 hours.
  • there are 22 shades to choose from, perfect from day to night.

I wish…

  • it has luxe packaging. Don’t get me wrong. It’s nice and unique as is, but I’m used to Lancome lipsticks that look sexy and expensive, living up to its brand.

Application Tips

  • Apply lip balm before makeup application to keep lips moisturized in time for lipstick application later on.
  • Blot lip balm with tissue before applying lipstick.
  • For makeup artists, use a lip brush to apply.


Honestly, I was surprised how long lasting Rouge in Love lipstick is. It has high color pay off that it’s true to the tube. Also, I’m always on the lookout for non-drying and moisturizing lipsticks. I can’t wear a lipstick all day that makes my lips even drier and feels so heavy. Thankfully, Rouge in Love does the exact opposite. It’s moisturizing and it feels really light. Although Lancome lipstick can seem expensive, I feel Rouge in Love at PHP 1,295/ tube is worth the price.

I recommend Lancome Rouge in Love lipstick to those who are looking for long-lasting, pigmented and moisturizing lipstick.
