I bought a few Lancome products recently and one of the products was a Lip Lover – a new line of lip colors recently launched by Lancome. All the colors were gorgeous and I was tempted to get more than one but I refrained and stuck to what I needed instead: a natural, soft rose color. After a lengthy decision making process, I picked #321 Rose Contre Temps:

The consultant at the counter mentioned these Lip Lovers were liquid lipsticks. But when I got to testing them and now that I wear it, I would definitely classify it as a lip gloss. The consistency is quite smooth and there’s a lot of shine but it’s definitely not opaque enough to be liquid lipstick. It actually applies quite sheer on the lips (though buildable); it has a soft fruity scent and doesn’t feel sticky on the lips.
The packaging is pretty “fancy” with a little button above the Lancome logo, which releases the gloss wand when pressed. I don’t know that this feature adds an additional benefit compared to the standard screw-top gloss tubes but it looks nice and chic. The wand itself is soft sponge which has a pointed tip allowing good precision, and two sides of the wand are flat, which spreads the product evenly over the lips.
I would definitely recommend Lancome Lip Lover if you’re looking for a high shine gloss with good color payoff and a great variety of shades. What I noticed however, is that there are some stores which seem to have more/less shades than others. I’m not sure why this is but the chart I did below seems to be the standard set of colors launched.
Lancome Lip Lover is $23, but as I was checking for color range, I saw that Nordstrom have a 10% off sale on these, which brings the price down to $20.70 – happy about that! ;)
