If you’ve seen my Instagram post on these Lancome Matte Shakers, I mentioned that these shades Completely Nut! and Plum Plum Girl are my first Matte Shakers. The Sephora sale last December 2017 for it was such a good deal that I nearly bought all the available shades. I’m part proud that I only bought 2 shades, but disappointed at my self-control. XD I really ♥ the Matte Shaker formula.
My L’Absolu Rouge is from a three-piece set which is a gift from my generous Aunt/Ninang. 😀 I wanted a different shade, instead she gave me this set. I’m not complaining. Three lipsticks against one? I’ll gladly and gratefully take the three-piece.
Aah~ More than a year since I had this lipstick for this review to be done.
Lancôme’s L’Absolu Rouge line boasts of having advanced replenishing and reshaping lipcolor. It contains Pro-Xylane™ that keeps lips moist, soft and comfortable for up to 8 hours. The SPF12 provides lips with protection. The regular-sized L’Absolu Rouge is 4.2ml/3.99/0.14oz; similar to Laura Mercier’s Crème Lip Colour. I believe all L’Absolu Rouge lipsticks have a satin finish. They also have a flowery scent that I quite like.
The MAC Ruffian Collection was released last June 18, 2012 in North America. The collection includes three lipsticks and three manicures. One of the lipsticks caught my eye.
I wondered if it has huge gold specks, but it doesn’t. Here’s a swatch by the awesome Christine:

I found out not too long ago that my brother changed the settings of my camera that’s why most of my FOTDs and FOTNs were either grainy or blurry. Lesson learned — Double-check settings of camera before taking pictures. Stupid of me not to think of that when I wondered all the time why the quality of the pictures didn’t look too well. Oh, since I browsed through previous FOTDs and FOTNs, I realized how I _slightly_ got better in makeup application.
Moving on to the point of this post…
