Lancome Le French Touch Absolu Nu Lipstick in Cotton Candy - review and swatch7:50 AM
How sweet is this striped tube of lolly-inspired joy?! It makes my teeth ache just looking at it.
Lancome's Le French Touch Lipstick employs several of my favourite tactics - pretty packaging, prettier pink insides and le word 'le' used in le name. Le yay!
It applies sheer, but can be built up to amp up the pink. The above swatch shows a single stroke, then a few layers beneath. It's not a long lasting lip colour and you will have to reapply. The tube is cute, but it's smaller than your average lippy at a weeny 3 grams but for the same price which leaves a sour taste in my mouth.
Normally cotton candy gets me all worked up like this...
|Oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes|
...and while a lipstick is no substitution for a real sugar-high, it does incite a similar reaction. Le yay!
