Review | Lancome L'Absolu Rouge Lipstick in Rouge Mythique #151

I actually picked this up a couple of months back in a blog sale, something about the lipstick just caught my eye and as you know I can never say no to a lipstick so I snatched this little bargain up!
What Lancome say about the L'Absolu Rouge lipsticks 
 "Make a statement with L’Absolu Rouge, the symbol of eternal femininity. 
Enriched with LancĂ´me's unique replenishing molecule Pro-Xylane™, this pampering lip colour creates visibly fuller and smoother lips. Available in 31 rich, voluptuous shades. With 8 hours of hydrating wear, this is the perfect lipstick to reshape, define and complete your luxurious look"
They contain Pro-Xylane an ingredient found in some skincare products which is said to provide hydration!
This colour is Rouge Mythique #151 and not only does it have a great pigmentation but it is a very creamy lipstick as well it has fine glitter particles which are red and gold and barely noticeable on the lips. One thing I noticed right away was that it didn't have that typical lipstick smell but rather a nice floraly smell that I can't quite work out what it is. I really like it but some people who aren't keen on scented products might not! I have tested the claims of 8 hour wear time and can confirm that the colour does indeed last for a good 5-6 hours and there is still a visible stain in the lips after that aswell!
The packaging is also great, I love the fact its not the typical round shape of most lipsticks and it also has little magnets on the bottom of the bullet that click the case tight shut. I also love the sleek black and gold with the signature rose.
Onto the colour, in the bullet it looks like it would be a very blue toned red, which is what put me off it to start with but once I had swatched it I realised it was more warm toned leaning towards the pink side of red! I honestly love this lipstick on my lips it has to be one of my favourite reds and I always get compliments when I'm wearing it, which is always a bonus! I also featured it in my October Favourites here.
You can buy Lancome L'Absolu Rouge lipsticks here for £22!
