|Lancome L'Absolu Rouge Definition Demi-Matte Lipsticks ($30.50 each) at Sephora|
Lancome L'Absolu Rouge Definition Demi-Matte lipsticks are a new launch from the brand, and as with a lot of the newer fall lipsticks, these too feature rich saturated colors with a soft satin-matte finish. There are 5 colors available in this range, and all of these are vibrant and opaque, with rich color with just a single swipe. The formula is smooth, and the finish is a softened matte finish, not a true dry matte. Lancome claims the formula contains essential oils like jojoba oil for moisturized lips and a light-diffusing gel which provides a gorgeous finish and feels comfortable on the lips. The lipstick bullet has a pointy shape that is supposed to help with precise application, though of course, I assume it will wear down to a more rounded shape with use. Here's a look at the swatches.

I have mixed feelings about the Lancome L'Absolu Demi-matte lipsticks. I like how opaque and color saturated these lipsticks are, and the formula does seem quite lip friendly. There aren't very many colors in this range, though, and I amn't too fond of the red-orange-brown family, but that's my personal preference, and I am sure there will be lots of people these colors would look amazing on. Perhaps Lancome will come out with more shades in this range later on. For now, I liked the pink-violet shades - Le Magenta and Le Violet.
