Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Hydrating & Shaping Lip Colour for Spring

Inspired by Paris, Lancome's spring collection is beautiful, but it was the lipsticks that stole my heart.  The three L'Absolu Rouge Hydrating & Shaping Lip Colours (€30) are the perfect addition to my spring makeup collection, and I've been struggling to pick a favourite!

Each of the shades are creamy and comfortable to wear and while shade 125 and 130 are similar, they're totally different (obvs) and that pink, shade 135, well that's a thing of beauty and was the absolute surprise of the trio!  See, I knew I was going to love the neutral shades, they're my jam, and when I saw the pink, I thought sure that's going to look mad on me... Never judge a lipstick by the bullet is what I've learned today my chums.  Keep reading...

Shade 125 and 130 are definitely more sheer compared to 135 and are for those who love their neutrals and by those, I mean me.  I love a nudey neutral lip that goes with any look, that isn't overpowering and that I don't feel self conscious wearing.

Shade 125 (pictured above) is a peachy nude and is just so beautiful on, giving a subtle hit of colour and has that balance of peachiness and brightness that isn't too much, especially for an aul one like me.  It's really comfortable on the lips and has a light semi glossy finish which I love.

Shade 130 (above) is a more caramel nude and again has a slight sheen in terms of finish.  I feel like this is the sophisticated older sister of the trio and is fierce ladylike altogether.

Shade 135 (above) is just the most perfect blue toned pink that I'd never reach for myself as it's totally out of my comfort zone.  It can't even see my comfort zone.  My comfort zone is a dot to it.  And yet I love it on me!  It seems to lift my complexion and add a bit of life to my skin and for that, I'm going to make an effort to wear it more often.  It's more opaque than the other two, but still feels just as comfortable on.

And thus ends this here blog post where I finally got excited about spring makeup!  The spring collection from Lancome is on counters now, so head in and get swatching them.  Which is your favourite?
