From classic Hollywood starlets to Taylor Swift in her Wildest Dreams video, the bold, precisely-applied lip is a look is one that will never go out of style. If you'd like to sport a shine-free version, the new Lancôme L'Absolu Rouge Définition is a great option as it gives you the three things you need in a good matte lipstick: intense colour, precision application and a comfortable feel on the lips.
Not only does the formula leave lips feeling extremely saturated with colour, the bevelled tip makes it easier to apply precisely — even without a lip brush — and will never wear out to a rounded nub. For the launch, the brand has introduced 12 shades, four of which are limited edition. Our favourites include the classic red Le Carmin (sported by Penélope Cruz above), the bold orange-red Le Vermillon as well as Le Grenat — which is the perfect blue-red.
