Lancome Mars & Sienna Ultime L’Absolu Rouge Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

For as shimmery and as metallic as it was, the actual finish was more flattering to my lips (and lip lines) than expected. I’d say that was due to the more emollient, luminous finish that had shine and a little glossiness, but the overall texture was lightly tacky, so it stayed in place better. It had opaque color coverage that wore well for five hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$32.00/0.14 oz. – $228.57 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be “hydrating” with “eight-hour” wear that is available in three finishes (sheer, cream, and matte). The cream and matte shades finishes highly pigmented, while the sheer finish is more medium, buildable in coverage.

The texture of the cream finish was lightly creamy, lightweight, and not too thin or too thick, so they applied comfortably, evenly, and were flattering on lips. The matte finish was slightly thicker and “heavier” in comparison, though still lightweight to wear, and it had more of a satin finish initially that wore down to matte after an hour or two. The sheer finish was more emollient and had a shinier finish with translucency but wasn’t so sheer that all the shades would look the same on.

The majority of shades did not last eight hours on me, though the wear was more between four and six hours with most mid-depth and deeper shades lasting five to six hours and the lighter shades and sheer finish shades lasting closer to four hours. The formula was hydrating across all three finishes.

There was a noticeable, powdery floral scent that translated slightly into a taste at times. It was a stronger scented product where I smelled it for a few hours into the wear, not just in the tube or when initially applied.

Lancome Sienna Ultime (120) L’Absolu Rouge Hydrating Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark pink-leaning coral base with lighter, peachy gold pearl woven throughout. The base color was creamier, which disguised some of the pearl, so it did not appear fully metallic as some other shades in the range have.

The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and had light slip, which helped it glide across my lips comfortably, but there was a hint of tackiness that helped keep the product in place and out of my lip lines. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for five hours and felt lightly moisturizing while worn.
