The one with the Lancome Rouge in Love Review.

When I see lipsticks marketed as long-wearing, the image of dry, cracked lips immediately pop to mind. It seems, though, that cosmetic brands are finally figuring out the formula for long-lasting, hydrating lip products. One that I'm absolutely loving is #377N Midnight Rose from the Lancome Rouge in Love line.

From Lancome's website:

  • Comfortable, ultra light texture that feels like a second skin
  • Up to 6 hours of wear
  • Smooth and soft lips, thanks to nourishing and repairing oils
  • Medium to full coverage provide high color pay off with long lasting shine 

  • Long wear color from new generation polymer
  • Oil concentrated deposit on lips maintains comfort of a balm
  • Shiny silicon creates brilliance of a gloss

My thoughts:
  • Highly pigmented: I only needed to swipe once to get full coverage on my lips.
  • Light-weight: Usually pigmented lip colors are a heavy, cream texture, not so with Midnight Rose. I can even forget I'm wearing a lipstick.
  • Long-lasting: With normal eating and drinking, this lasted about four and a half hours on my lips. What was especially nice was the flattering stain it left once the lipstick itself wore off.
  • Moisturizing: I love that even in the cool, dry weather I feel like I can wear this lipstick because it leaves my lips feeling conditioned.
  • Flattering: I think the bold fuchsia of Midnight Rose would complement a variety of skin tones.

Hope the review was helpful to you! : )


  1. That is gorgeous! My favorite lip colors are ones in that fucshia-meets-red family. (and that cat sweatshirt is too cute).

  2. Excellent Review Ashley- I agree w you on all counts! The shades looks beautiful on you:)

  3. That colour is lovely on you!

    After watching Nikki Roth's fall lipstick video I went out and bought 379N (Rose Sulfureuse) and 381B (Violette Coquette) and am obsessed with them both. I've never been a lipstick girl, let alone a bold colour girl, but I've received a lot of compliments when I wear these. The colour payoff is amazing and I'm super impressed with how long the colour lasts. I apply it before I leave the house at 7am and when I get home at around 6pm there is still some stain left. Glad the $30 was worth it!

  4. Beautiful! I always shy away from long-wear for the reasons you mentioned, but I might like this!

  5. Agree with every word, lovelovelove this lipstick. I have both the colour you're wearing and the Violette Coquette Courtney mentioned.

  6. I just found your blog and...wow, I'm in love :) This lipstick looks great on you, I'm not sure it'd look this good on me but I'll swatch it at Sephora next time I go there. xx from Italy!

  7. You look great in red lipstick, and you are the one who inspired me to finally go out, buy red lipstick, and actually WEAR it! My complexion is similar to yours (red hair, fair skin), and seeing you rock it totally inspired me! I ended up getting a Revlon Super Lustrous Creme in 'Wine With Everything' - which works pretty well with my skin tone :)

  8. Hey there, I just stopped by to say you won the Liebster Award, check out my post on it: http://mygurumi.blogspot.de/2012/11/mein-liebster.html

  9. That color on your lips is amazing!
