I am reviewing a lipstick shade today which I feel is one of the prettiest shades of all time. It is a very soft shade of red and can be worn by all – all over the world. Emma Watson was wearing this shade when she was promoting this range, and this is, undoubtedly, her most favourite from the range.
A high-potency, featherweight lip color that lasts up to six hours. This radiant lip color lasts for hours, has the look of a brilliant gloss but delivers the comfort and soothing qualities of a balm. Categorized by mood, the collection includes: “Jolis Matins” or “pretty morning,” a range of ready-to-wear, fresh day shades that add brilliance to the lips due to the precious mother-of-pearls; “Boudoir Time,” trendy, punchy, evening-appropriate “it” shades that give color to the lips thanks to the intense contrasted mother-of-pearls; and “Tonight is My Night,” sophisticated, pure intense shades to give depth to lips for a deep lacquered effect and luminous color created by gold mother-of-pearl. This product provides medium to full coverage and high color pay-off. Long-wearing color is formulated with a new generation of polymer. Shiny silicone creates brilliance of a gloss. Shades can be identified by a letter in the shade number that denotes each of the three categories: “Jolis Matins” shades are identified with the letter M, “Bourdoir Time” shades are identified with the letter B, and “Tonight is My Night” shades are identified with the letter N in the shade number.

My Experience with Lancome Rouge in Love 159B Lipstick:
This shade belongs to the group of Boudoir time, which are trendy, punchy, evening-appropriate shades that give color to the lips, thanks to the intense contrasted mother of pearls. These are some of the best formulas I have used and that is the reason why I keep coming back to it again and again. The shades are pretty, spring-like; though can be worn throughout the year.
It comes in a silver-colored box packaging on which all details are written. The lipstick case is also silver in color, with a broad base. The two parts shut with a satisfying click. The metal case is not color coded, hence you will not be able to differentiate the shades from outside. The bullet inside has an oval tip which fits with the curvature of the lips. Overall, the packaging is aesthetically quite pleasing.
Bullet: The bullet inside has superb pigmentation. The shade 159B is a soft red color, which is perfect for both daytime and evening wear as well. It is a superb spring-time shade which instantly brightens up any face. The lipstick has a lovely rose fragrance, which disappears after a few minutes.
Formula: As I have already mentioned, I am a big fan of these lipsticks. It has shine and hydration, just like any other sheer lipstick; however, the pigmentation is much more. It is very suitable for the spring months, since all the shades, even the darker ones have a slight softness to them. The lipstick needs to be swiped 1-2 times for full coverage; however, it never seems cakey on the lips. It does not sit on the lip lines, it has never bled on me. Even during summers, it stays totally intact and does not melt. It moisturises and hydrates the lips.
Staying Power: It lasts for 5-6 hours without meals. Since it is a natural shade, it does not stain the lips much. On taking some snacks, it does get wiped off a bit. A full meal does not wipe it off, in fact it leaves a very pretty mild stain behind. It does transfer onto glasses and cups, but only very slightly.
