Review: L'Bel Couleur Luxe Rouge Irrésistiblé lipstick

L'Bel Couleur Luxe Rouge Irrésistiblé in Vin -a wine-berry shade- is a color rich lipstick that provides both hydration and protection with SPF 17; which is something I don't recall seeing in a lot of lip products except for lip balms. The packaging & the color of the tube are gorgeous!



This shade might look intimidating in the tube, but its formula makes the color looks less vampy, almost sheer, but not quite there yet.  In my experience, most dark lipsticks in a similar shade with gold flecks tend to feel a little gritty (maybe because of their high pigmentation?) but this one feels almost like its melting on my lips. It is a weird sensation, but feels very nice & soothing.  I must admit; I felt a bit disappointed at first when I swatched it on my hand. I expected a super dark color at the first swipe, but I had to do a second one to get what you will see below.  Then I applied it on my lips and not feeling the grittiness I was expecting made sense, it felt very soft and glided smoothly.  One thing tho, I recommend applying it with a brush unless you are a master of precision; its so soft that you can easily slide it outside your lips outline. Also, using a lipliner would be perfect because it will give you a nice and crisp outline.

sorry for my super dry lips!

Here in the swatch you can appreciate how it looks under different light settings, the first one is natural light without flash. I think that someone with a darker skin tone would rock the hell out of this shade!
