I love this lipstick! I have it in Cocoa Couture. The lipstick smells good and is packaged well. If I ever use up the tube (I have so many lipsticks...), I will definitely repurchase. The size of the stick is pretty small, but it's the perfect size for me.
I have this lipstick in the 391N Fiery Attitude shade but when I tried two of the reds, they did not do much for my NC 43 skin tone. I tried 181N Saint Honore and 170N Sequence of Love and they did not have a much pigment on me. These reds were just off and did not look good on me although they were recommended for darker skin tones. However, they were very moisturizing and the texture was great, which is one of the reasons I wanted to try more shades. So far Fiery Attitude is the only shade I like of this line. Still looking for a really nice red.
I was looking for a moisturizing, high-pigment coral-red that would brighten and complement my yellow-based but pink-toned/'fair olive' according to some SAs/rosacean skin. I wanted it to be wearable day-to-day, either 1) on its own, as a stain; 2) as a stain, under chapstick, gloss, or a neutral beige or pink, because getting the hue right is super challenging for me; or 3) built up on its own to get serious glossy, shiny coverage for evenings, yet not feel like stage makeup. I wanted at least some of it to stay on for a few hours, at least.
Essentially I was after one lipstick that could do everything. (I thought maybe I could also use it as a cheekstain, in a pinch.) This is that. It's sheer, luminous, while retaining depth of colour. It feels amazing to put on. It stays on.
The colour I have is 'Crazy Tangerine' (174B), and I think it would suit others with equally yellow-based or 'sallow' skin tones (people with lighter-toned skin from Asian, Middle Eastern, or Eastern European backgrounds, I think, would like it).
I bought one of these lipsticks on sale, 340B rose boudoir, And it really amazed me. Im a sucker for M.A.C lipsticks so I wasnt very optimistic about these but woow after just one use it left me very pleasantly surprised.
I'm using this product over 6 months now and I still can't decide whats "wrong" with it.
Pros: -Beautiful, vibrant colours
- Feeling rich, soft
- Luxurious packaging
-Doesn't stay on for long
Therefore I won't repurchase again.
Very lightweight, stays well, doesn't crease (without lipliner)
Specifically for 240M Rose En DeshabillĂ©, it's a natural lip colour, perfect match.
Very aestheically pleasing and practical packaging.
I got the Rouge in Love lipstick in 2 shades, 170 + 146. Such a big disappointment. The colors are lovely, creamy texture but after a few minutes the color is all over, everywhere around my lips, except on my lips. I use them with an YSL lip liner and both of them are spreading outside the lips afer a few minutes os wear. Shame... And I paid 27euros each.
I've got 322M - Corail in love.
It's a very pretty peachy pink shade, glossy and brightening. Glides beautifully and feels comfortable and moisturizing.
Lasts much better than the L’Absolu Nu lipsticks and thankfully there isn't the obnoxious rose scent of Nu here. No taste either. I like it and would recommend but I already have some similar shades in my collection so I don't plan on repurchasing.
For 181N Saint Honore: Holy cow, this stuff is pigmented! Moisturizing, too. Even as a stain, this creates a distinctly red lip. And it does stain: residual color lasts for hours and hours and hours. Works beautifully as a stain, under lipgloss, and as-is.
First of all, HOLY EFFING CRAP THESE COLORS ARE GORGEOUS! The Rouge In Love line is filled with rich pinks, berries, corals, and reds that really embody the namesake. I haven't found creamy, luxurious shades like these in quite some time.
As far as formula goes? Rouge In Love is probably my favorite line of Lancome lipsticks. They feel super luxurious and creamy, go on smoothly, and look just gorgeous. They have not dried my lips out either (but I always do use a coat of balm underneath). I suggest applying a coat of lipstick, blotting, then reapplying and blotting again for optimal longevity.
The packaging for these is really pretty too. I can't think of any flaws with these lipsticks (in my eyes at least). 5/5.
