Lancome’s L’Absolu Creme de Brilliance is a hybrid of sorts. It’s more than just your average lip gloss, delivering lip treatment, hydration and a hearty dose of long-lasting color. The core of this product is a concentrated anti-aging molecule called Pro-Xylane™, and I’m sure it likely delivers on its promise. But I don’t really want to focus on that. I want to put the technical, scientific reasons this gloss may be superior aside and tell you why I love it. The wear! The smell! The feel! The colors! The packaging! It’s absolutely brilliant.
I’ve been trying this out in Amanda Sucree, a bronzy neutral. Funny thing, I was obsessed with Amanda Sucree in the late 90s after getting a tube in a Lancome gift-with-purchase. This is definitely a classic Lancome shade! I was blown away by this product though – it feels so amazing on the lips. It never gives a dry feeling and it has more pigment than a gloss but actually looks like a gloss on the lips. This is a rock star lip product.
I think this that every woman would benefit from having in their makeup bag. Next time there’s a Lancome gift-with-purchase, I plan to pick up either Champagne or Blush Classique. If you’re like me, you always go for the gift but never know what it is you actually need to buy. Add this to your must-try list!
