Lancome Creme de Marron & Perfect Fig L’Absolu Rouge Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Lancome Crème de Marron (254) L’Absolu Rouge Hydrating Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a light, peachy brown with moderate, warm undertones and a soft, luminous sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable to mostly opaque coverage with a second layer.

The texture felt smooth, lightly creamy, and thinner with a touch of tackiness that helped keep it in place but did not feel clingy on. There was a smidgen of product that settled into my deeper lip lines that was visible in the close-up photos but wasn’t enough to be visible in person from a normal viewing distance. It lasted well for four hours and felt lightly moisturizing while worn.

Formula Overview

$32.00/0.14 oz. – $228.57 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be “hydrating” with “eight-hour” wear that is available in three finishes (sheer, cream, and matte). The cream and matte shades finishes highly pigmented, while the sheer finish is more medium, buildable in coverage.

The texture of the cream finish was lightly creamy, lightweight, and not too thin or too thick, so they applied comfortably, evenly, and were flattering on lips. The matte finish was slightly thicker and “heavier” in comparison, though still lightweight to wear, and it had more of a satin finish initially that wore down to matte after an hour or two. The sheer finish was more emollient and had a shinier finish with translucency but wasn’t so sheer that all the shades would look the same on.

The majority of shades did not last eight hours on me, though the wear was more between four and six hours with most mid-depth and deeper shades lasting five to six hours and the lighter shades and sheer finish shades lasting closer to four hours. The formula was hydrating across all three finishes.

There was a noticeable, powdery floral scent that translated slightly into a taste at times. It was a stronger scented product where I smelled it for a few hours into the wear, not just in the tube or when initially applied.

Lancome Perfect Fig (265) L’Absolu Rouge Hydrating Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a darker, rosy plum with moderate, warm undertones and a luminous finish with very faint pearl. It had rich color coverage in a single stroke, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging.

The consistency was lightweight, thin but not clingy, and had a touch of tackiness, which helped keep it feeling lightly creamy on but not to the point where it slid around. It stayed on nicely for six hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.
