Although I’m quite the avid makeup shopper (and experimenter!), I only just recently started venturing into the realm of lipstick in place of my tried-and-true favorite glosses. That’s a pretty big deal for me – especially as someone who appreciates the room-for-error convenience of just haphazardly swiping on a quick coat of gloss and going about my business – so if I’m going to put in the extra effort of carefully applying a bold lip color, it better be fabulous and it better last! Lancome’s new line of lipsticks, Rouge in Love, strives to excel in both those areas. With a series of 21 shades (divided into three themed “moods” to suit different occasions!), Rouge in Love provides shades that are pretty and fresh enough to wear during the day, but are buildable enough to make a sexy statement for night as well. High-shine, highly pigmented, and long-lasting (up to 6 hours of freshly-applied perfection!), Rouge in Love’s shades are worth the slight splurge at $25 a pop!
