Lancome Color Design Sensational Effects Lipcolor Smooth Hold-Trendy Mauve

Hello IMBB Readers!

Today I’m going to review Lancome Color Design Sensational Effects Lipcolor Smooth Hold in Trendy Mauve (Cream). This is my very first lipcolor from Lancome and I purchased it online. After trying Lancome’s Teint Idole 24h foundation I really wanted to try out Lancome’s lip colors. For years I have been looking for a perfect n*de shade but never came across any. When I saw Trendy Mauve online I had a gut feeling that this is going to be the color that I have always wanted and moreover it was available at discounted price. I had a look at the swatches that were available on web and finally placed the order at 2:30am.

Price:

INR 1129 for 4g/0.14 oz (as mentioned online, I bought it for INR 903)

My Experience with Lancome Color Design Sensational Effects Lipcolor Smooth Hold Trendy Mauve :

The Lancome site has described the color as caramel pink. It is a neutral- pinkish brown, everyday wear shade. The texture of the lipcolor is creamy, glides on lips very smoothly and gives a semi-matte finish. The pigmentation is good and one swipe is enough for coverage. The lipcolor neither settles into the fine lines nor does it bleeds but is transferable. I don’t need to put a lip balm beneath before Trendy Mauve’s application. The color and the hydration last on my lips for less than 2 hours. The color wears off evenly without making my lips dry. The packaging is very elegant and sturdy. The Lancome’s logo is embossed on the bottom of the packaging. The bullet has the logo engraved on it and its shape makes the application easy especially where the lips are narrow.

IMBB Rating:

3.5/5 (-0.50 each for 1st, 2nd and 4th con)

Will I Repurchase Lancome Color Design Sensational Effects Lipcolor Smooth Hold?

I like the color Trendy Mauve a lot but I don’t think I would like to repurchase any lipstick from this range. Had the color and hydration lasted longer, this would have been my HG lipstick. I think there are many other brands in the same price range that have neutral shade lipsticks with a lot more staying power and hydration.
