Lancome Rouge In Love and the gorgeous Emma Watsons
Love at first sight - that sounds about right when it comes to my relationship with Lancome's Rouge In Love lipstick. 

Lancome Rouge In Love - 163M
"An ultra-light texture for endless tailor-made looks that take you from day to night. Rouge In Love is like a second skin that satisfies your every desiere. In short: love at first sight."

Lancome Rouge In Love - 163M (WITH FLASH)
With 21 gorgeous shades available, Lancome claims that Rouge In Love is as comforting as a balm, as colourful as lipstick, as radiant as mirror.... Lips feel smooth and soft thanks to the nourishing and repairing oils that provide hydration for up to 6 hours with striking shine.

Lancome Rouge In Love - 163M (NATURAL LIGHT)

What I think about this baby?
Does it live up to what Lancome claimed to be?

It hit right on the spot. (no pun intended =P ). 

It looks matte on the tube, but is extremely moisturising when applied on the lips. Lasting power is beyond amazing, as tested by yours truly (you will find out why very shortly). Not to mention, extra brownie points for the super chic and sleek packaging! 


Lancome Rouge In Love pretty much covers everything you can ask for in a lipstick!

However, if you really want me to pick a bone in this, I would have to say its "numbering system". Whilst I love my numbers (like any other accountants duh), numbers and classifying does not go well together. It's so much easier remembering names like RedHotDamn or CherryPop rather than 351B or 377N. AND, maybe the price tag as $45 is pretty steep for a lipstick. I am sure many of you are on the same page as me on this. 

I think I have done enough talking and babbling and let the swatches and photos do the explaining now, shall we?

Natural Light
For some reasons, the colour turned out to be quite different under natural light and with flash. In this instance, the one with flash is definitely way more true to the actual colour. 

As can be seen from the swatches above, 163M is a bright red colour with a coral undertone. It's a gorgeous combination of bloody red and coral in my opinion. The perfect pick-me-up lipstick in this deary cold weather!

With the insanely chilly weather the past couple of days here in Sydney, I have been opting for bright coloured lipsticks to "pick me up" and make myself feel more positive at the start of the day. No prize for guessing which lipstick has been frequently reached out as of late. =P

After going through a "smokey look" phase (FOTD and how-to HERE) , I am back to neutral eyes and bright bold lip colours again.  Instead of the typical taupe/ champagne lid colour, I replaced it with this lovely duo chrome peach shade from my INGLOT eyeshadow palette. 

A FOTD post with this eye look coming up very soon as I have been lovin' this eye + lips combination lately (which happens to be my daily FOTD as of late), so stay tune for that ladies! 

Lancome Rouge In Love is retailing at RRP $45 from 26 March 2012 onwards at MYER and David Jones stores and selected pharmacies.
