Vintage Ruby (306)

Lancome Vintage Ruby (306) L’Absolu Rouge Ruby Cream Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a soft, pink-leaning coral with moderate, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had opaque color coverage that applied fairly evenly to my lips, but there was a bit of product that settled into my lip lines over time. I was able to smooth it out for the most part by pressing my lips together as the color wore down.

The texture was moderately dense, more like a velvety-cream but firm enough that there was a little tugging during application. Once on my lips, it was rather comfortable to wear as it stayed in place well but didn’t feel clingy. It wore nicely for four and a half hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$32.00/0.14 oz. – $228.57 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be “long-lasting,” “richly-pigmented,” and “hydrating” with “one-stroke application.” The lipstick is denser with more tackiness, so it did seem to pull/drag on my lips during application a bit, though it delivered semi-opaque to opaque coverage that adhered evenly and was longer-wearing over time.

I’d recommend using shorter, more overlapping strokes to apply the color rather than a more continuous stroke, as this was comfortable and delivered full coverage and a smooth laydown of color overall. Surprisingly, the texture felt more like a traditional lipstick, the kind with more slip and creaminess, once on my lips, but it had better adhesion, which kept it in place better and prevented it from accumulating in my lip lines. Most shades wore five to six hours on me and were lightly hydrating.

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.

Ruby Star (314)

Lancome Ruby Star (314) L’Absolu Rouge Ruby Cream Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a rich, deeper red-coral with moderate, warm undertones and a lightly glossy, cream finish. It looked glossier than it felt, especially when I initially applied it as the bullet felt denser, slightly firmer and a little on the thicker side, though it was lightweight on my lips.

The lipstick delivered opaque color coverage that applied evenly but seemed more prone to settling into my deeper lip lines than many shades in the range, though admittedly, it was barely noticeable in person. It lasted well for six hours and felt lightly moisturizing over time.
