Lancome L'Absolu Rouge lipstick

I decided I wanted a new Fall lipstick shade so I purchased Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Advanced Hydrating Lipstick in Sienna Ultime. So yeah, I totally have a ton of Fall lipstick colors already but when the season rolls around I just feel like I need every single shade of nude, orange, burnt orange, copper, and brown based lipstick in the entire makeup universe.

I recently went to Nordstom to get the new La Vie est Belle Eau de Parfum Intense but sadly they didn’t have it but of course, I couldn’t leave without looking at the lipsticks and that’s when Sienna Ultime decided it needed to come home with me.

Lancome L’Absolu Rouge is a formula that’s always had outstanding performance. Creamy color, a delicate rose flavor and fragrance, an SPF 12, and a moist, hydrating formula that wears for four to five hours makes this a wonderfully formulated lipstick. These have such a comfortable feel on my lips with a very nice bit of moisture and an easy glide during application.

But I digress as I really want to rave the shade I choose.

Lancome L'Absolu Rouge swatches

Sienna Ultime is a coppery coral sienna with a hint of a metallic sheen on my lips with an orange-y undertone. In sunlight it almost has a golden sparkle towards the middle of my lips! The color reminds me of Fall foliage, the leaves just turning, that bite of coolness in the air! It’s the perfect Fall color to me and works beautifully with a nude, natural eye (I paired it up below with a nice natural eyeshadow from the Lancome Auda[City] Eyeshadow Palette) or a smoky brown eye!

If you’re shopping Fall lipsticks I’d highly recommend Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Advanced Hydrating Lipstick in Sienna Ultime! Excellent formula but most important a very beautiful autumn shade.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I absolutely love this shade and the only reason I haven’t purchased it is how deep my lip lines look when I wear it. Looks great on you, honey!

      awwww lip balm maybe to help fill the lines before applying!? 🙂 Aw thanks chica!

    So pretty! I also wear La Vie est Belle! It smells like very glamorous. Almost like a throw back to the ’80’s.

    That is a truly sensational colour on you! I thought the swatch leaned pinkish – but on your lips it just looked divine. This is my new birthday present from me to me……

    Muse! You’re on vacation now but just wanted to ask if you could pwetty pwease review more of these Lancome lipsticks?? Especially 368 Rose Lancome. They look so beautiful!

    I was doing my makeup the other day and really wanted a coppery nude bronzish lipstick and immediately thought of this review and was super annoyed I didn’t have Sienna Ultime!
