Beauty Swatch Book: Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge – 368 Rose Lancôme Review

Beauty Swatch Book: Lancôme L'Absolu Rouge - 368 Rose Lancôme Review

If you read my previous Beauty Swatch Book post on Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge – 202 Nuit & Jour, then you might already know everything about this lipstick and how I obsessed I am with it! The clickable top is definitely one of my faovurite things about the new design. So rather than pulling the lid off to reveal the bullet (like you would do with any lipstick), you simply click the top to loosen the lid which then slides off easily from the bullet. Hence #ClickTheRose

Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge comes in 36 different shades. 202 Nuit & Jour is lightest shade (Lisa Eldridge’s favourite) and 368 Rose Lancome is one of the brightest and most iconic shades (Lily Collin’s favourite). From the two, I must admit that Lancome Nuit & Jour is my favourite due to the neutral colour which I can wear on daily basis.

Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge – 368 Rose lancome


Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge in 36 shades pretty much covers the whole spectrum of lipstick shades from nudes, to reds to pinks! The shade I have here is 368 Rose Lancome which is classic bright pink shade. It’s so bright, it’s almost fluorescent which really puts the focus on your lips!  The colour is most similar to the iconic and most recognisable rose from the Lancome logo!


The texture of Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge lipstick is not the same for all shades as it comes in 3 different make-up finishes; Sheer, Cream and Matte. 368 Rose Lancome is a cream lipstick, and it feels super smooth and moisturising upon application and it even looks good on chapped lips. The coverage is incredible, but you may need to use a lip pencil and lip brush for a flawless finish.


The colour is long-lasting, but it does stain on glasses. Nevertheless, because of the strong colour the intensity doesn’t wear off from drinking only. The colour only comes off if you eat a big meal and drink at the same time (as expected of all lipsticks). Even so, it leaves a pretty subtle pink stain which looks like a more natural looking pink lipstick as opposed to looking patchy. Basically, it wears off nicely!

I love this Rose Lancome shade, but I don’t think it’s something I’d be wearing everyday as I don’t often wear bright rosy colours. Hence, I don’t actually have many lipsticks in this colour spectrum… but I think this needs to change! Rose Lancome would be a really gorgeous colour to wear in the summer and it also look very pretty in photos.
