My Experience with Lancome Color Design Sensational Effects Lipcolor:

A while ago, I received a gift of Lancome’s Color Design Lipstick from one of our relatives coming from USA.  The shade of Lancome Color Design Lipcolor I got is Fashion Icon which is medium berry-plum color and it is a metallic finish. It is a semi-sheer, light berry shade with just a touch of shimmer. This shimmery berry with little sparkles is a very lovely color and would work well with many skin tones.


This lipcolor comes in a gorgeous lipstick tube almost metal-looking plastic. It’s just a bit wider than most lipstick tubes and is metallic black more like dark gunmetal in color. You can only stand them label-side down. On one side of the lipstick, it has a colored top which is close to the shade of the lipstick.  The insert of this top is made up of plastic and has the Lancome rose embossed on it. The other end of tube shows the actual color. Taking the cap off this lip color, you see the typical Lancome slanted tip lipstick.


The quality of Lancôme’s Color Design Lip Colors is just amazing! When I apply Lancome Color Design Lipcolor, I like the smoothness and the feel of this lipstick. They feel wonderful and have a nice texture. It has a really smooth yet thicker feel. The texture of the lipstick is soft, creamy and very moisturizing and glides on smoothly. Even single shade in the lipstick is consistent in its finish, feel, texture, and pigmentation.

While my shade has minimal shimmer, the metallic finish gives a nice shine to the color. Although, it doesn’t feel wet, but it’s not dry at all. There is no scent or flavor at all.

The only downside about this product is that the color and the moisture don’t last a long time. I found that after a few hours (not more than 2-3 hours) of applying the lipstick, both the color and moisture are gone out. Even though I apply this lipcolor a short time ago, I need to re-apply it. I am very disappointed with this aspect of this lip color since I had expected more from a high-end lipstick.


1) Light, smooth texture and very moisturizing.
2) Lots of shades to choose from.
3) Gorgeous tube.
4) Nice finish.
5) Doesn’t dry out lips.


1) Both color and moisture are not long lasting.
2) To pay 22 $ for a lipstick is just too expensive.
3) For online shopping, there would be difficulty to choose the actual color as the swatches given on the website are not accurate at all.

Final Verdict:

The main aspect about the lipstick that impressed me is that it’s very moisturizing, otherwise I have absolutely no desire to try it!!! I would like to get this lipstick again, but maybe in the cream or matte finish and after a long time, as I have to finish lots of lipsticks now. I am not sure if it’s worth the price tag of $22, but if you want to treat yourself, this would be the perfect thing to get!!!
