Lancome L’ Absolu Nu Repleneshing & Enhancing Lip Color – Rose Candy

Hello Gorgeous Ladies!! Trust you are having a great day!

By now you must have understood my obsession with lipsticks and with eatables – I just reviewed Shiseido Bubblegum for you and now its time for Lancome Rose Candy!! ;) This lippy is from Lancome’sL’Absolu Nu collection – not to be confused with their L’Absolu Rouge Collection. The former is the sheer and natural looking counter of the latter.

Lancome L’ Absolu Nu Repleneshing & Enhancing Lip Color – Rose Candy

US $30 / INR 1750


The product packaging is fabulous – it’s a black case with light grey motif on it – very pleasing to the eye and the Lancome logo on top of the cap. The cap closure is magnetic (like a Giorgio Armani and Burberry lippy) – ensuring your lippy does not come open in the bag. The case comes packed in a silver cardboard box.

As usual, no colour indicator on the lippy.

My experience with LancomeL’Absolu Nu Lipstick – Rose Candy:

Color: The colour “Rose Candy” is apt – its pale pink and looks delectable enough to be eaten. I can sit and stare an the Lancome motif on the lippy – it looks fab and very up-market.

The colour is fairly sheer but can be built to the colour in the tube by multiple swipes. It’s a pretty pink – a little paler than the Shiseido Perfect Rouge Bubblegum.

Texture: The lipstick is lightweight and applies like a lip balm. It pretty much glides on your lip and is extremely hydrating. It appears glossy and balmy – has no shimmer or sparkle.

Pigmentation: This one haslowpigmentation – it is marketed accordingly. However, multiple swipes bring the colourupto that in the tube – refer pics. Once built up, it hides all lip pigmentation.

Lasting power:The product lasted about 3-3.5hours on me – its not ong-lasting – nor is it touted to be. Its marketed as ultra-hydrating – which it is. Your lips feel hydrated a couple of hours post the lipstick disappearing –which sometimes even lip balms don’t do (atleast my Nivea does not!!)

Lancome L’ Absolu Nu Repleneshing & Enhancing Lip Color – Rose Candy4
To sum this up for you:

Pros of LancomeL’Absolu Nu Lipstick – Rose Candy:

1. A beautiful candy pink color– can be worn sheer or built up!
2. Lightweight texture.
3. Extremely hydrating
4. Easy to apply
5. It applies smoothly and evenly – no tug or pull!
6. Does not settle into the fine lines of the lips
7. Lasts for about 3-3.5hours
8. No feathering or bleeding
9. Iconic Luxe packaging

Cons of  LancomeL’Absolu Nu Lipstick – Rose Candy:

1. I cannot think of a con here except maybe the low lasting power. However, with this hydrating a texture, it is expected and re-application should not be a problem.

IMBB Rating:

A 5/5 product

Beautiful flattering colour, luxe packaging, extremely hydrating – this one delivers on the promises made. Although 8 hours of hydration claim from the Company is bit of a stretch – atleast on my dry lips.

So what do you think? Does the lippy look inviting edible to you?
