From Lancome's newly-released Fall 2012 Midnight Roses Collection, Lancome L'Absolu Creme de Mat in 300 Magic Pourpre ($29.50) is a luxe lip color fit for a black tie affair. With a glamorous deep magenta shade, a luxurious creamy matte finish, and intense staying power, this plumping lip color is an excellent choice for a romantic Autumn rendezvous.

Lancome L'Absolu Creme de Mat in 300 Magic Pourpre has a light, almost mousse-like cream texture that feels wonderful on lips. Despite being called "Creme de Mat," this product has more of a non-drying satin finish. Lancome L'Absolu Creme de Mat in 300 Magic Pourpre subtly plumps lips and fills in lines for a smooth, pillowy look.

Lancome L'Absolu Creme de Mat in 300 Magic Pourpre is a beautiful magenta shade. The pigmentation is intense and opaque, so you only need one coat for full coverage. You can build up layers of this versatile lip color if you want a deep, sultry purple look, or blot down for a berry pink.

Lancome L'Absolu Creme de Mat in 300 Magic Pourpre isn't marketed as a long wear lip color, but it should be. I was so excited when Lancome L'Absolu Creme de Mat in 300 Magic Pourpre survived a meal! The gentle formula lasts for hours and fades evenly. 

Unfortunately, I find that Lancome L'Absolu Creme de Mat in 300 Magic Pourpre smears outside of my lip lines when I eat and drink. I need to be careful and check the mirror afterwards to clean up any smudges. I don't usually experience smearing when I wear lipstick, so this is a frustrating new development.

Overall, I am really enjoying Lancome L'Absolu Creme de Mat in 300 Magic Pourpre. The shade is bold and glamorous, making it a wonderful choice for an evening look. The comfortable, plumping formula makes lips look extra luscious, and the wear time is impressive. If only it didn't smudge!

Have you checked out Lancome's Fall 2012 Midnight Roses Collection? What do you think of all of the rich purple, magenta and fuchsia shades?
