[productsample/affiliate] These arrived just a bit too late to make Valentine’s Day, but they’re so lovely I thought I’d include them anyway – even though they’re definitely themed I’m not sure I know a time where a heart shaped lipstick isn’t a gorgeous thing.
There are two shades of lipstick – Soir and Rose. Sior is a bright red, and Rose a bright pink.
As you can see, there’s also a limited edition Monsieur Big in a pink tube covered in red hearts. I thought that maybe a heart shape at the top of a lipstick will feel weird and while it doesn’t have the instant ‘fit’ of a traditional bullet shape (best lip huggers are Charlotte Tilbury who has got the shape just perfect) goes on pretty much as normal.
The L’Absolu Rouge formula smells to me how lipsticks should smell – and always used to smell before vanilla and mint got needlessly involved ;-). It’s that perfumed, powdery scent that reminds me of my grandma’s lipsticks.
In the swatch: Rose (bottom), Soir (top). They’re still in stock on-line at £25.50 each HERE and £21 for the mascara HERE. Non Affiliate Link HERE.
