I seriously hate all matte liquid lipsticks except Lancome Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Velours Liquid Matte Lipstick! They get a pass! Please, would someone tell the beauty trend world to stop with all the long wearing soul and moisture-sucking, long-wearing liquid lipsticks! They are brutally harsh on my drier lips!
I just can’t apply a matte liquid lipstick in the morning and wear it for 12 hours. Nooooo! It’s not only dry but difficult to remove, difficult to reapply, just difficult everything!
That’s why I’m now a fond fan of Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Velours Liquid Matte Lipstick!
Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Velours Liquid Matte Lipstick is an easy to wear liquid matte lipstick with a velvety finish. Lancome created this formula with such an excellent blend of lightly hydrating oils with a lightweight texture that’s easy to wear yet doesn’t forsake the popular matte liquid lipstick look that’s so popular at the moment.
Honestly, when I first tried them I admit there was some mental eye rolling going on. I thought for sure they’d be a super dry, matte liquid lipstick! But no! These have a soft, fluffy whipped mousse consistency that applies easily and evenly without feathering, migration, or dry issues. They have a pleasantly lightweight consistency that applies smooth without adhering to drier areas. During the initial application, they actually have a very faint shine as can be seen in my photos below but they set within a few seconds to a matte finish. But don’t worry, it isn’t a super dry, tight matte finish. It’s a very thin, weightless formula that adheres to lips like a second skin without adding unnecessary dryness.
Both shades I tried had excellent opaque color coverage with a wear of five hours each. They do have a perfume-y fragrance and flavor that Lancome lip products are known for.
Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Velours Liquid Matte Lipstick are for the people that hate long wearing liquid matte lipsticks. These give you a fairly long wear, excellent pigmentation, and a feather light formula that allows you to embrace the matte look without forsaking your soul to get it!
