You know that thing where you are wearing concealer and mascara and you’re kind of ‘done’ but you are about to make a micro-entrance. Not the kind of entrance where you pause at the top of the stairs and hope that those assembled below will fall silent. Not the kind of entrance where you hope to slay and cast spells. Just a pretty, glossy first impression. With you looking – God forbid – as though you’ve thought about this micro-entrance.
Hello Lancôme L’Absolu Gloss Rôsy Plump. Just a pale lip polish with no pearlescence and a satisfying cooling sensation that goes someway towards calming micro-entrance nerves. Almost imperceptible, it pulls the whole thing together. A little bit of élan. A little bit of sexy. A little bit of kissy lips. And it just kind of melts on to the lips. Beauty School Dropout suggests you rub it just outside the lip line for a slightly rude pout. Or don’t. Sorry.
