Lancome Merci Simone & French Rendez-vous L’Absolu Rouge Drama Matte Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches


Merci Simone (290)

Lancome Merci Simone (290) L’Absolu Rouge Drama Matte Lipstick (2022) ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was lightweight, thin, and smooth with light glide that applied opaque, even coverage in a single stroke. It stayed on well for five hours and felt non-drying.

Formula Overview

$32.00/0.12 oz. – $266.67 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to deliver “intense bold color in one swipe” with a “vibrant and matte finish.” The texture is firmer, slightly denser and stiffer, though not to the point where it dragged or became painful to apply. I found that the added stiffness made it easier to get a more precise edge when working with the formula, which was quite pigmented overall.

Despite having a very matte finish, as promised, the formula sat well on my lips and did not seem prone to emphasizing lip lines, settling into lip lines, or clumping around texture, which made it a more flattering matte formula to wear. They were transfer-resistant and longer-wearing with many shades lasting over six hours on me. The formula felt lightly hydrating to non-drying overall and were comfortable to wear.

They had a floral scent and very subtle taste at times, though not consistently for me.

French Rendez-vous (295)

Lancome French Rendez-vous (295) L’Absolu Rouge Drama Matte Lipstick (2022) ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark orange with moderate, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was particularly flattering to wear, as I have often found that these types of muted oranges can be prone to emphasizing lip texture, but this one was smoothing and easy to apply. It had full color coverage in a single layer, while the lipstick had a lightweight, thin feel that didn’t have much slip but wasn’t prone to dragging. This shade wore well for five hours and felt neither drying nor hydrating.
