I have been looking for the perfect red lipstick for quite a while – and I’ve finally found my shade from Lancôme’s Rouge in Love line.
The hue is 170N (Sequence of Love), and it was recommended as my skin is very pale (especially in these grey winter months). This classic shade of red complements my skin tone wonderfully, making my eyes pop without making me look freakishly ghostly.
To apply, first make sure your lips are well moisturized. Dry lips start to show lines and cracks more easily. Some women choose to then use liners to define the lips; I skip this step as it takes too long in my morning routine. After applying the Lancôme lip color, I blot once and it’s ready to go.
True to its word, the color actually lasts for hours, even if I sip on a water or tea. If I eat a meal I do have to reapply, but a quick swipe is all that is necessary.
