Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creamy Smooth Finish I just bought this lipstick and it is just fabulous. If you like creamy and smooth, not matte. It feels great. I'm not too happy with the shade but that's on me. The lighting was off at the store I purchased it at, and it looks totally different in natural light. Still I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this lipstick! Have worn the Mars shade for a while now and it is my go to shade. Even though you may need to reapply throughout the day, it keeps its moisture and doesn't run. Love how it makes my lips feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this lipstick! I've been struggling to find a nice red that didn't clash with my red hair and I finally found it! LOVE this color and it's super moisturizing. Wore it last night out to dinner and I still had a good amount on after dinner and drinks. This will definitely be my go to red. It feels so luscious on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely packaging, very moisturizing & comfortable I have a few of these and I love them. The packaging is very cool. I kept pressing the button on top nonstop when I first got it. The lipstick is moisturizing, but the color goes away quite quickly after a meal or after few sips of water. Overall, I still love it and would reccomend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Lipstick I have been wearing this lipstick for 3 years now in the color Mars. It is a nice peachy toned lipstick that works all year 'round. Recently I purchased another color during Macy's cosmetic sale. Both of them are really nice, long lasting and feel "soft" on the lips.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lamcome’ Lipstick I’m actually disappointed! The color has no depth. Crushed Rose sounded strong, very slight in color. The worst part is it does not stay on. I’m pulling it out often to re apply. I guess I thought it might be better than Drug Store quality....not! The price is High and Quality Low. I ordered this online. This proves Go To The Store. See with your own eyes then decide. My Bad, I guess, but I paid for this. 2 stars ⭐️

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beige Mirage is a perfect neutral. L’absolue lipstick is so different than anything I’ve tried. This color is a perfect neutral, not too brown or pasty or too pale. It’s very moisturizing and feels very nice on. The click top case is clever and good. I will be buying more colors in this line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very moist and good color At my age, I do not wear bright red lipstick so was looking for a hydrating formula and a dark red color that would stay true after applying. This one checked all the boxes. It is a burgundy/raisin type color so is neutral enough to go with anything and hydrates so doesn’t make your lips feel dry. Love the new designed tube which pushes down at the top to release.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Happy OK, this is a fantastic lipstick, usually, and this is a RE ORDER. However, does Macy's save this product in the warehouse for VIP events so that when it is offered "on sale event" the OLD lipsticks are sent out?? Since the one I just received is very dry and not at all like the beautiful, moist lipstick that I first received from my original Lancome' purchase. I am very disappointed in this purchase!! It is a magnificent color and lipstick, I am just not sure what is going on here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect red 132 Caprice is the perfect red color for me. My skin tone is a pretty neutral tan (not pink, not olive, etc) and this is by far the most flattering shade of red I have ever tried. Formula is great too! soft and silky, not drying but also doesn't smear all over your face. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, Quality I have been very pleased with Lancome’s Lipstick. I’ve been steering away from Drug stor make up, and slowly collected more quality products. I used to wear Revlon, and it would crack up and disentigrate/pixelate over time. (I have drier skin and even with chapped lips, this looks great!) These lipsticks Lancôme makes are made with Vitamin E and are much more quality product. They last for about five ours if you don’t rub lips or eat/drink. Just bring it along with you and re-apply it after your meal. I would rather have a good lipstick like this over a poorly made lipstick that stays on all day. It’s mousturizing and vibrant color. It looks smooth and is natural feeling. I just feel beautiful when wearing these lipsticks! I have a Sheer and a Matte and LOVe BOtH. This Sheer is perfect for an everyday look, adds color and looks natural. I plan on mixing the two to create a third color! So fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luxurious lips!!! I love this lipstick. I glides on smooth, fills in completely and it lasts a LONG time. I tied a new color this go around and love Merlot #188. Many people are afraid of the dark color, but it really looks great and makes my complexion look better. I also really like the case...great design!

What color do you recommend in place of Sugared Maple?

Asked by: Nancy
Many customers who wear Sugared Maple, also choose Mars which is the L'Absolue Rouge formula. They are quite similar and give that same warm look. The other option you might want to check out is "Check Me Out" which is a Color Design formula. I hope this helps you!

Where can I find Absolue Rouge, Rose Crystal, #233?

I have used this shade for over 2 years and just love it. I am concerned, however, that you've discontinued it to my dismay. If so, is there any place I can find it? If not, can you recommend a shade similar to Rose Crystal? I prefer the brownish/pinks which are more subtle. Thank you.

Looking for the best lip liner to go with #264 Peut-Etre

Asked by: Anonymous
I think there are a couple possibilities for a liner. 210 Lipstick Ave in the Lip Crayon is great for lining the Lip but you can also fill the Lip in as well and wear as a lipstick! My other recommendation would be, Sheer Natural in Le Lipstique

Do lipsticks in Matte last longer and deposit more pigment? What is the biggest difference between matte and cream?

Asked by: boxerlady
Yes! A matt Lipstick will last longer than a cream lipstick and will deposit more pigment. As in the word "matt" it will give a flat, matt look and may feel a bit more drying. If you would like a bit of shine, just dab a bit of gloss! As for a cream lipstick, you will have a more "creamier" look with a bit of shine and moisture but you will have to reapply more often than a matt lipstick

Lancôme has added several new colors to the L'Absolu line of Lipsticks. #192 Lie de Vin --- sheer finish #189 Isabella. ---- Matt finish #193 Souvenir ----- Matt finish If possible, it's always a good idea to visit a Lancôme counter and try on the lipsticks first.

My recommendation would be if you can not find it anywhere, is to go to a Lancôme counter and check out all of the new colors in the L'Absolu line and I'm sure you will find one extremely close to the Ruby Silk. It's always best to try a new color on if possible.

Asked by: Anonymous
Ulta, Nordstrom, Dillards, Macy's, and Sephora all carry shade 120 (Sienna Ultime) and currently have it in stock online. You can check their websites (Dillards is the only one that doesn't seem to have this feature) for the product and enter your zip code to see if any of them have a store in your area with it in stock. You can also get it online directly through Lancôme's website or on any of the sites of the stores mentioned above.
