Lancôme L'Absolu Rouge Lipstick in Coquette

Coquette (29$) is a dusty rose colored lipstick that comes in luxe Lancome packaging. The shiny golden tube goes inside a sleek black lid that's magnetic and the general weight of the lippy does not feel cheap.


There's no special fragrance to this lipstick as it has that typical waxy smell. For some reason though, that scent always gets me nostalgic for younger days, reminiscent of my mom and her modest vanity.

don't you love how I focused on the Lancome flower of the cap instead of the lipstick? (-'.'-)

Anyways, "iced beige-y pink" is the official description for Coquette, which is accurate. The color is warm and natural, plus there's a nice satin finish on the lips. During wear it doesn't flake or feather, but it does seem to fade and color won't last for more than a couple hours before needing to reapply. However, it is one of the most hydrating lipsticks I've worn, perhaps due to the special Pro-Xylane ingredient that's meant to be "moisture-boosting." There are also antioxidants along with SPF 12 and Vitamin E for some environmental protection.
