Liquid Lipstick Two Ways: A Glam Bold Lip and a Simple Lip Stain for the Perfect Pout

Matte lip stain creates the perfect natural lip tint. Learn how to apply liquid lipstick as a lip stain with Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Drama Ink Liquid Lipstick.


Summer or Winter, Spring or Fall, it doesn’t matter the season – a bold glam lip or a soft lip stain can be great all year round. The best part? You can achieve the look with just one product: a liquid lipstick.

Not all liquid lipsticks are created for the same purpose so it’s worth paying attention to the benefits each will offer depending on the look you wish to achieve. Some liquid lipsticks are glossy whilst others are matte. Some have long wearing properties and others boast hydration. Available in 13 high-impact colors Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Drama Ink liquid lipstick provides:

• Long-lasting all-day wear
• Lightweight, comfortable feel
• Semi-matte finish
• No feathering or bleeding
• Patented curved formula for easy application
• Can be worn as a high-pigment liquid lipstick or a lip stain for a natural lip tint

How to Apply Liquid Lipstick for a Full Glam Look

A liquid lipstick is often a go-to when it comes to bold lips. If you have decided to wear a bold lip choosing a high pigment lip color should be your first step. Designed for high pigment in one swipe Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Drama Ink Liquid Lipstick is formulated with an ultra-thin water-in-oil emulsion which coats lips in high impact color whilst remaining lightweight and comfortable for hours on end. As the product applies effortlessly thanks to its innovative applicator there is no need to apply multiple layers of product meaning you can avoid any uncomfortable patchiness and cakiness. Creating and wearing a bold lip doesn’t need to be complicated. To create a full glam look using Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Drama Ink:

Step 1. On clean, dry lips apply the liquid lipstick using the patented curved applicator. Use the edge of the applicator to line the outside of the lips as though it were a lip liner. For best results apply Absolue Nourishing Lip Balm Honey-In-Rose prior to application and blot off any excess.

Step 2. Use the applicator to apply product to the remaining areas of the lips.

Step 3. Allow product to dry down to a beautiful semi-matte finish. Keep the rest of your makeup minimal to ensure the bold lip remains the focus.

How to Apply Liquid Lipstick as a Natural Lip Tint

A highly pigmented liquid lipstick doesn’t just have to be applied in one way. A bright and bold high impact lip color can create a show-stopping makeup look. However – you can also get creative with your application method. Lancôme Drama Ink Liquid Lipstick can be applied to the lips as a lip stain. Stained lips are great for summer as they provide a more natural looking color which wears gradually throughout the day. For a soft matte lip stain that provides a more natural look using Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Drama Ink:

Step 1. Ensure lips are smooth and hydrated. For best results apply Absolue Nourishing Lip Balm Honey-In-Rose prior to application and blot off any excess.

Step 2. Use the tip of the patented curved applicator to dot the product onto the center of your lips.

Step 3. Blend outwards towards the edge using a brush or fingertip.

Top tip: Use a ‘tapping’ motion to blend liquid lipstick into the lips this can help give a plumper, cushion-soft pout.
