A liquid rouge with a matte finish. Inspired by Tresor Midnight Rose and the majestic hue of purple, Midnight Roses-Lancome's Fall 2012 Color Collection-evokes mischievous femininity and glamour. L'Absolu Creme de Mat combines the gentleness of a gloss and the coverage of a lipstick with a deep velvety finish on the lips. Three limited edition shades, ranging from bright red to profound burgundy, will cover every look from day to night. The precise-angled, tapered tip applicator ensures an even and contoured application. Backstage Beauty Tips: Before applying L'Absolu Creme de Mat, use L'Absolu Rouge La Base to moisturize lips and ensure an even application. Create a daytime look with soft, shimmery eyes and contoured face and cheeks with the Blush Subtil Palette, and finish off with your favorite L'Absolu Creme de Mat shade.
