Lancôme recently came out with L’absolu lacquer range that imparts buildable shine and long wear with a lightweight formula and high-shine glossy finish. There are many shades in this range. I bought the shade “315 Energy Shot.”
A lip lacquer and long-wear stain that’s buildable for high-impact color and shine. This brilliant lip lacquer combines the comfort and shine of a gloss, the pigment of a lipstick, and the lasting power of a stain. The high-shine finish and vivid color payoff are buildable from sheer to full coverage in as little as three coats. Lancôme’s innovative oil-in-water emulsion is lightweight and non-sticky, providing up to six hours of wear. Enriched with glycerin, this formula keeps lips feeling hydrated throughout the day.
My Experience with Lancome L’Absolu Lacquer 315 Energy Shot:
Packaging: Lancome L’Absolu Lacquer “Energy Shot” comes in a sleek, fading black tube with golden writing. The bottom part of the tube shows the lip shade colour. The shade name “Energy Shot” is mentioned on the bottom of the tube. The tube has a black cap. The applicator is a very unique doe-foot one. The applicator has a curve and dip in it. The curve hugs the lips and provides an even application. I can achieve a crisp line using this applicator. The product comes in a silver cardboard packaging with the ingredient list specified at the back. Overall, the packaging is luxurious and elegant with the Lancôme signature golden rose embossed on the top.
Shade and Finish: “Energy Shot” is a warm coral color. One coat of this lip lacquer gives a nice hint of colour to the lips, more than two coats impart an intense coral look to the lips. This shade is suitable for fair to dark Indian skin tones. This lip gloss is perfect for everyday use. The finish of the lipstick is ultra glossy. The lip lacquer gives an illusion of a plumper, fuller lips. It is extremely comfortable to wear. The lacquer leaves behind a sheer pink tint.
Texture and Application: The texture of the lacquer is lightweight, slightly oily and glossy without any tackiness. The lip lacquer is very hydrating since it contains glycerine. The lip lacquer is not sticky. The lacquer is buildable from sheer to full coverage and applies flawlessly without any patchiness. The doe foot applicator provides ease of application.
Pigmentation and Coverage: The lip lacquer combines the comfort and shine of a gloss, the pigment of a lipstick, and the lasting power of a stain. You can also apply it on top of lip liner or a lipstick for that added oomph. One coat of the lip lacquer gives a sheer hint of colour to the lips. Two coats of lip lacquer gives a nice glossy shine to the lip and more than three coats provides an intense opaque juicy colour to the lips. The lip lacquer have a floral scent which is not overpowering.
Staying Power: The staying power is really good. It stays on for around 5 to 6 hours without the need to reapply. However, it will start to fade if you eat or drink, but the tint remains behind. You can reapply the gloss easily.
Overall, I am really happy with the color payoff, texture and the longevity of the lip lacquer. It is truly a unique formula. The lip gloss can be easily removed with a makeup remover.
