Lancôme is bringing back glossy with the new L’Absolu Lacquer
Gloss like a boss
Fact: Shiny glosses are making a comeback. While the stats are up in the air as to whether Rihanna's the one to credit for making lipgloss cool again, what's certain is that the ultra-matte trend is done and dusted. Seems like a purge of the matte liquid lipsticks you've hoarded over the last year and a half is imminent, no? And while you get on that, you might as well hook yourself up to the next big thing in lip with Lancôme's newest innovation, the L'Absolu Lacquer. Packing a killer high shine effect that will put the slick, glittery pouts of the '90s to shame, these babies combine the pigmentation of a liquid lipstick with the finish of a gloss so you can have it all.
With buildable shine and colour, each swipe of L'Absolu Lacquer goes on vibrant and stays on for six hours. Formulated with a hydrating watery feel to give you a comfortable, barely there wear so you won't find yourself pursing your lips on and off in annoyance, there's also none of that notorious stickiness typical of traditional glosses. Plus all 18 shades in the range have zero feathering or bleeding, and application is easy peasy with the precise wand. As speedy as a single layer or as intense as three (or more) coats, L'Absolu Lacquer is glossy perfection that'll have you rocking shine so HD your pout has its own spotlight.
Lancôme L'Absolu Lacquer is available from May, $48
