Last year, Lancome’s iconic L’Absolu Rouge lipstick line turned 25 and went through a reinvention. Lisa Eldridge, its creative director who also runs a popular Youtube channel showcasing beauty videos, created a whole new palette of 86 shades that came in three variations: Sheer, cream, and matte. Earlier this month, the brand announced its latest addition to the L’Absolu Rouge family: L’Absolu Roses in Gloss.

L’Absolu Gloss lipstick range is a part of the L’Absolu Roses collection, a collection that includes lip liners and nail polish, and is inspired by the various shades of roses that Lancome has been known for. The lipsticks are prettily presented in transparent bottles and black-lacquered lids stamped with a golden rose.


Elegant and precise, L’Absolu Gloss also delights with its chromatic palette of 23 delicious pink-infused shades available in three covetable finishes: Sheer, for glossy lips, lightly coloured and sparkling; cream, to dress the lips with a veil of intense colour; and matte, for deep-coloured and velvety lips.

From a casual everyday sheer pink to a glam dramatic red for a night out, we wish we can have the whole range in our kits. But if you must really choose just a few, here are the 5 best shades we can’t wait to have from the Lancome L’Absolu gloss collection, each perfect for a specific occasion.

L’Absolu Roses in Gloss will be available in all Lancome outlets nationwide September onwards, at RM110 each
