Review: LANCÔME - Lip Lover Ultimate Lip Perfector 316 Rose Attrape-Coeur :)



Hello! It's been too long since I last posted a review for a lip product and I am coming back to you with a gorgeous product - Lancôme Lip Lover Ultimate Lip Perfector in shade 316 Rose Attrape-Coeur! I have a mini version that sadly contains only 3 ml of this amazing lip product, but it's one of my all time favourites! These have been on the market for some time now, nothing new, but I kinda fell in love with the whole Lancôme concept and brand and all with this product. Actually this has been my first product by them!



I can not say if this mini version is still available, but I am sure you can get it in gift sets along with mascara and some other products. The full size is 4,5 ml and the price is about 22 euros, depends where you buy it, for example you can get it at Salma.si or FeelUnique.
The packaging is simple silver tube, feels a bit plastic, with classic Lancôme rose sign at the top. Opens up with a twist of the cap and contains a classic doe foot applicator, which I like, but find it as nothing special. It also includes a clear window on the front to show the colour of the product. 


This is a liquid lipstick kind of product and it's supposed to offer a 3-in-1 effect - the shine of lipgloss, the colour intensity of a lipstick and the comfort of a lip balm. The formula is a bit thicker compared to the usual glosses. It has a dual-phase formulation which breaks into two layers upon application - upper layer is glossy and shiny, gives transparency and a plumping effect and the second layer of oil and pigment provides with balmy base so the colour pigments adhere to the lips. The scent of this gloss is a bit different than I am used to, reminds me mostly of something cosmetic, but can't really describe it. Some other bloggers claimed that the scent of these reminded them of skincare products by Lancôme, which I can not yet confirm as I have not tried anything from them yet. Application is easy thanks to the doe foot applicator, which has a nice shape, just flat enough and with a pointy tip so you can really get a precise application. The big bonus is this is really good at moisturizing my lips, feels very comfortable to wear!


The shade 316 Rose Attrape-Coeur is a very gentle shade, more like a "my lips but better" shade, which I fell in love instantly. In the packaging this looks a lot more pink and strong than it actually looks on my lips. When applied this looks very much like the shade of my lips but just enhances them some more. It's a very creamy shade, but still in a liquid glossy formula.  It's also contains some shimmer, but it's very fine and subtle, spotted only on direct sunlight. I usually need to apply one coat and than just go over in the center of my lips to add some more colour.  If I apply this too heavily the shimmer likes to gather in any lines or cracks I might have on my lips. The shade itself is a really gorgeous every day shade - a subtle watermelon pink, very warm but light. Can be worn with almost any makeup look or just on it's own. 





To sum up, I really love this shade and the fact that I can use it for any kind of occassion, work day or for going out and it always looks superb! I also got many compliments while wearing this lip product and that's saying something! I will not claim that this is the best I have ever tried, but so far I must say this has not let me down, not even once. The lasting power could be a bit better though, lasts me only about 3 hours, but still I find the shade so good I am very keen on trying some more shades. Though these are on the pricey side, some beauty bloggers recommended you can also try NYX Mega Shine Lipglosses that also have a very similar formula but are a lot more affordable. I however do not own anything quite like this one, the closest to it are my Revlon lip glosses, which you should also try! ;) If you have tried any of the Lip Lovers, which ones impressed you? Which shades do you recommend for me to try next?

I hope this post was useful to you!

Thanks for reading!


Love, UniqaPoly
