Lancôme Lip Lover #356 Belle de Rouge

Today I have another shade from Lancôme's Lip Lover range to share with you! #356 Belle de Rouge* ($29 CAD/0.14 oz) is a gorgeous sheer red colour that would be perfect for daily wear. The new Lip Lover formula is very hydrating, creamy, and non-sticky, and the packaging is really cute too!

"A dewy intense lip colour that offers shine and intense colour without sacrificing moisture. Captivating colour intensity combines with the hydration of a balm in this new three-in-one elixir formula. The balmy base provides up to eight hours of moisture while a smoothing layer reduces the appearance of fine lines and creates a dewy shine. Finally, the saturated pigments provide the ultimate in colour pop. Colour, shine and care all in one – Lip Lover is simply lip-changing!" - Lancôme

Lancôme's new Lip Lovers come packaged in sleek silver tubes that are very reminiscent of their Gloss in Love tubes. I really like the packaging, you push a little button and the wand pops out, very satisfying! The wand is a flattened doe foot that is fairly long. The scent is slightly floral with a hint of vanilla, but it's not very strong at all.

#356 Belle de Rouge is a sheer red colour that his a very glossy, dewy finish. I think that this is a great shade for anyone that wants to start wearing a red lip, but isn't ready for anything too daring. Lancôme does market the Lip Lover line as having intense pigmentation, and so far I haven't found that to be the case with either of the two shades that I've tried. I don't mind a sheer gloss, but it's something to point out. If you're looking for a highly pigmented gloss, this one won't be for you.

 I really love the formula of these new glosses. The formula is smooth, creamy, and hydrating. I get about 5 hours of wear out of these glosses before I need to reapply. This formula isn't sticky at all, and it feels almost cushiony on my lips. I do find the formula fairly similar to Maybelline's Color Elixirs.

I'm not sure that this formula lives up to all of Lancôme's claims, and you might be able to find a more affordable dupe from Maybelline's Color Elixir line. If you have the money to spend, and you've been curious about this new formula, then definitely check them out. I'm curious about the other shades, especially the darker colours in the line. If you've tried out Lancôme's new Lip Lovers I would love to hear your thoughts!

  5. Ooh, I love sheer reds for summertime and this one looks super pretty! I agree that it may not be worth the price though- Revlon's are my fave. Have a great weekend, Laura! xo
