Bonjour Lancôme Lip Lover! You have finally arrived in Canada!

Lancôme Lip Lover is Lancôme’s entry into the glossy lip stain that’s ON every brand’s mind apparently this year. Seriously. EVERYONE. Lancôme Lip Lover has a balmy base and is supposed to give lips up to eight hours of moisture.  It has a smoothing layer that reduces the appearance of fine lines. And, it’s got pretty nice pigmentation too!

The packaging is just like the Lancôme Gloss in Love where you click the little button and twist the top to open. Although, the size is pretty small.

You all know how I love a doe foot applicator, and Lancôme Lip Lover has an hourglass shaped one that hugs lips during application. It’s a one-stroke application you get which is impressive! There’s enough product to cover lips with one dip. No double or triple dipping required!

Swatchy Time!

Lancôme Lip Lover in Rose Ballet #313 is THE PERFECT pale pink shade, with just a hint of sparkle. I have been looking for a shade like this forever! It’s part of the Basic Chic Shades, which are all pink based and easy to wear shades. The brighter shades are called the Creative Chic shades, and they’re bright pops of colour.

Lancôme Lip Lover Rose Ballet #313 is REALLY REALLY comfortable on the lips, non-sticky and WOW it’s moisturizing too! It feels like a lip balm, not a gloss-there’s that buttery cushiness on your lips that a lip balm has if you know what I mean. They have a non-sticky silicone-infused oil that gives that glide on texture that smooths out lips. Thicker than a gloss, it has the faintest rose vanilla scent-like barely there. I couldn’t even detect it, but Marky did. Once on the lips, you can’t smell anything though. Apparently the Creative Chic shades have a rose, iris and violet scent.

What’s amazing about Lancôme Lip Lover is that it stays on lips for 3-4 hours glossy, even lasting through eating a single serving of lo-cal rice pudding(I’m the only one who likes rice pudding in my house) and a cup or two of tea EASY. I’ve never worn a glossy lipgloss that can do that. After about 3 hours the glossy-ness has faded but the colour remains in a light stain on your lips. And that’s there for another couple of hours too. That’s because Lip Lover has an intelligent bi-phasic formula. The emulsion separates when you apply it, so that the pigment phase can fuse with lips while the glossy phase rises to the surface to coat and smooth lips. That’s some awesome science-y lip gloss ya’ll!

I can’t find anything bad to say about Lancôme Lip Lover. There’s the slightest bit of sticky right before the glossy disappears, but ever so slightAnd that’s me being picky. I REALLY like it a lot. I’m not a gloss person at all, but I AM NOW. I’m going to be honest here, but I don’t often purchase more shades of makeup I’m sent to review, especially with lipstick and glosses. But Lancôme Lip Lover? I’m getting MORE. FOR. SURE.

Get your Lancôme Lip Lover at counters later this week! Retail price is $29 and it’s so, so worth it! I promise.

There’s another brand that’s coming out with a similar product pretty soon here, and I’ll be reviewing it too. Heed my advice: this one is BETTER.

*products sent by the lovely PR, but as always, my thoughts and words are mine as my crazy is just too damn hard to control. Ask my husband. He’ll tell ya. [emoji smiling face with halo]

Oh, and do YOU like rice pudding too? Or am I the only person that loves it? Just no raisins in mine though. Raisins RUIN desserts. Like cinnamon buns-NO RAISINS ALLOWED THERE EITHER.

  • These actually last surprisingly well, no? Even light colors like this one and the one I have!

    Sorry but rice pudding isn’t really my thing. I guess it’s because I’ve never had a really good one tho.

    • I know! Totally my fave lip product this year.
      Hahaha-yes that’s the thing. You need a nice, creamy one with the right amount of vanilla in there. AND NO RAISINS. 😛

  • Thanks for the thorough review! This is on my wish list along the new Dior Fluid sticks.
    I’m not a fan of pudding except for the banana pudding from the Magnolia bakery..and I like golden raisins (but that’s about it ;p)

    • Most welcome! As long as the banana tastes real I’m cool with that. I hate that fake banana taste. Hurts my teeth haha. The fluid sticks are—well, I’ll tell ya soon.

  • 38noodles

    Was going to pass on these completely since I’m trying not to fall down the Lancome rabbit hole, and that it looked a bit small in size….. But you raved and I shall heed to check ’em out!

  • Wow, I can’t believe it lasts like that through food! As soon as I see these next I am picking up at least two! Or maybe one of these and one of the Gloss in Love

    • Me either! I was so surprised! There’s a nice bright red with your name on it lovely! 🙂

  • rachlovespenguins

    I’ve been wanting to try these! There are soooooo many colours to choose from though, and I don’t even know where to start. Part of me (the sensible part) says, “get a normal colour to wear every day” but then there’s the other side, which screams “get all the bright pretty colours that make you happy but go with absolutely nothing and *grumble*grumble* force you to create outfits and makeup looks revolving around your lips!!!!”

    Raisins only ruin my desserts when I’m not expecting them to be there. If I know they’re in there and I want raisins on that particular day, then that’s okay, but I think their presence should be disclosed in the same manner as peanuts. NO SURPRISES. Because raisins masquerading as chocolate chips….. that’s just criminal.

    • See, get TWO. One like this that’s easy to wear, and a nice bright one for fun. I’m getting a brighter one to take with me to Disneyland next week because WOW these suckers last. I figure if it can survive tea and rice pudding, then a churro is NO MATCH for it. :D:D
      LOL hahaha-I don’t mind raisins by themselves. But in my desserts? I’d rather them not be there. Dates on the other hand? LOVE them. They can be wherever they please haha!

      • rachlovespenguins

        I love dates! Oh man when I was a kid my grandmother used to make me go to the vacation bible school in her town and they would try to get all us kiddos to eat figs and dates and unleavened bread. I loved that part because all the other kids wouldn’t eat the figs and dates because they “looked like bugs” so I got them all to myself. Go ahead and just eat that bread, suckers. More figs and dates for me! LOL

      • HAHAHAHAHA see that would be me too! Good thing I wasn’t there otherwise I’d make you share hahaha!


    S doesn’t, though. What the heck. How could I be married to this man??? Although, he didn’t like cheesecake when we started dating, either, AND I FIXED THAT.


    I tried one of the Shiseido ones in store and it was a bit tacky, but I think it’s pretty similar to how you describe this one. I need one of each, I think. In the name of science. Also because I’ve been big into glossy things lately – gloss and barely there color. Or COLOUR.

    • YAY!! Hahahaha FIXED that hahaha-that’s what we do all right!

      YES YOU MUST. There’s barely any tack in these-barely. You’ll like them!

  • So freakin’ good, right?! I want more too. I seriously loved just about every shade. Lancome seriously impressed me!

    • Me too! I can hardly wait for them to launch on counters so I can see all the shades in person! I need a bright happy shade lil you have next!

  • ….erm…no to rice pudding lol. the texture weirds me out which is also strange since porridge/congee doesn’t weird me out in the same way.
    i really want to try this product! the market has been going crazy with glosses lately and they’re all killin it! i also love the click opening on these tubes.

    • Hahaha I love the texture-that’s one of the reasons why I like rice pudding so much. I also like my ice cream to have stuff in it for the same reason-I like chewing I guess haha. Yes you MUSt try one! These are the best ones I think!

  • Gaelle

    loooooove rice pudding!
    What a nice pink colour! Shame I don’t buy lipglosses anymore!

  • Lily

    I erm, don’t eat rice pudding >_<
    I wonder if this is released here yet. I've read great reviews so far and I'm curious!

    That is a really really pretty shade! I was never into pale, milky shades until recently. Adding to the wish list! (Yay! Oh no! Yay!)


    I don’t think I like rice pudding, but I agree with you about raisins. RAISINS NO.

    I don’t know about rice pudding, but I know that I sure like the look of these bad boys!
