I have been really into colored lipsticks lately. It seems that the days of the nudes are over (for now). I picked up two Lancome lipsticks earlier this week and have been love- love- loving them. I grabbed one in Classique Pink from the Spring collection and one in Coquette from the Fall 2010 collection. I also received the Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate and should be posting a review of it soon.

Le Rouge Absolue Classique Pink is true to its name. It is a lovely vibrant yet natural pink lip color that goes on very smoothly. It is definitely more moisturizing than the Coquette. I like Coquette, but am a little disappointed in its texture. Although not drying, it definitely is not as moisturizing as I had expected it to be. It has a purple red hue while staying true to the pink/berry family. Its metallic highlights add some earthly brown, which I really enjoy.
Two other colors I have been wearing lately are Dior Bronze Couture and Bobbi Brown Pink Berry. Bronze Couture is similar to Coquette in color, but a little more on the bronze orange side. I find it surprisingly drying. Bobbi Brown’s Pink Berry, on the other hand, is lovely to work with. It’s a beautiful pink that glides right on. I usually don’t wear pigmented colors, but I have been wearing more questionable colors:
Nvey Eco Lip Color in 351
It’s a dark pinkish purple color. I feel so – grown up wearing this color. It really gives a darker, more mature appeal. The lipstick itself is very soft and easy to apply. The only problem is that it may be a bit too soft: always the first of my lip colors to melt when it gets hot.
