Which ever way you look at it, the Lancome L’Absolu Velours are gorgeous! Following the lip velvet trend, they dry to a matte finish – but it’s not an absolute matte so more forgiving on the lip.
I have three swatches which gives a good idea of performance – loving the orange shade – Velours de Etincelle. The other shades above are Velours de Violine and Velours de Petale. They’re certainly quite stainy on the lip so even when the initial coverage has gone, you’ll be left with some colour. There’s definitely a bit more quality to these than other ‘velvets’ around – they’re a gentle formula that doesn’t feel sticky or heavy – in fact, the opposite – almost a water feeling.
They’re £20 each HERE.
