Hello beautiful ladies,
A Very Happy and Prosperous New Year to IMBB family!!!! Hope you all had a great year and will have a superb year ahead. This is my first review for this year and so I wanted to write about something nice and classy and so I thought of writing about a lipstick from Lancôme. It’s the Rouge in Love lipstick in the color Berry in Love. I have two of these and the other color I have is called Rose Boudoir. I bought this lipstick about 6 months ago, but never used it much as I bought it for my mom and wanted her to use it more than me, but as the winters approached, I gravitated towards darker lip colors and started using this.
3.4 gm/0.12 oz.
$28.50, it costed me in Euros, but since it has been 6 months, I forgot the price I bought it for.
The lipstick comes in a hard silver metallic packaging with Lancome written towards the base and Rouge in Love written in a shiny square box on the lid. The cap also has a beautiful rose engraved on it.

My Take on Lancome Rouge in Love Lipstick – Berry in Love:
Color: Its a beautiful berry color with no shimmer in it. It is a beautiful shade that is ideal for winters. Yes it’s bright, but it does not look too dark and thus is not so difficult to carry.
Texture: When seen in the packaging, the lipstick seems to be matte, but when applied, it does not come out to be matte. Instead, it is a very soft and creamy color that has its own shine, it looks kind of glossy and hence no gloss is required over it. I loved the shade but I wasn’t too sure about whether my mom will like it or not as it seemed matte, but thankfully, when we swatched it, we loved the texture too. It is a complete non-sticky formula that is very hydrating. With this lipstick on, my lips don’t feel dry even if I skip my lip balm.
Pigmentation: Amazing is the only word I can think of while describing the pigmentation. Just one swipe on the lips makes them pop, and if somebody requires a bolder look, the color is easy to build without looking streaky.
Staying Power: Company claims that the color would stay for 6 hours, which is kind of true. The intensity of the color does not remain same after a few hours, but it indeed leaves a beautiful tint on the lips, which does not go even after using a makeup remover. The color gets easily transferred to everything that touches lips and this is the reason that the color loses its strength with time. After trying it for a few times, I feel that this is mainly due to the creaminess and shine it offers, once you blot the shine with a blotting paper and take the color close to matte look, its staying power increases.
Pros of Lancome Rouge in Love Lipstick – Berry in Love:
- Beautiful packaging.
- Bright/bold winter color with no shimmer.
- Amazing pigmentation.
- Smooth to apply.
- Good staying power (at least, it is close to what it claims).
- Color is easily buildable without looking overdone.
- Sufficiently moisturizing.
Cons of Lancome Rouge in Love Lipstick – Berry in Love:
- Not so easily available in India.
- Color name not written on the lipstick, only number is mentioned (the name can be seen from the site only).
