Review: Lancôme L'absolu Velours Intense Lip Color in Velours de Grenade #197

Hey Guys

Hope you all are happy and healthy. 

Lancôme L'absolu Velours Intense Lip Color are liquid lipstick sorts with high impact pigments packed in it that provide full coverage in a single pass in velvety matte finish. I got mine recently, however, these are not new in the market. I got it in color Velours de Grenade #197, which is a perfect red, not to cool or warmed toned. It's a very light weight formula and does not feel dry on lips. However, it would exaggerate chapped lips. It's extremely long wearing, which does not bleed from the edges or fade unevenly and sustain a full Indian meal. One needs to wait for couple of minutes after application for it to set to a velvety matte finish. 

Price: INR 1650/- for 6 ml which is quite reasonable as you need a very small amount and you don't need to dip the applicator again in the tube for full coverage. 

These come in transparent semi-conical plastic tube with black screw cap and a band in the middle which has the Lancôme rose imprinted on it in gold. The applicator is perfectly shaped that makes application easy and the sharp pointed end makes finishing  the edges easy. 

The hand swatch below is very glossy, as the picture was taken immediately after swatching. The product sets to a velvety matte finish, which is noticeable in the lip swatch. As the finish is velvety matte, don't expect a perfect matte finish without shine. Could you notice the pigmentation in just the single swipe.
