Lancome Color Design Lipstick Pretty Burgundy - Swatch and Review

Hello Ladies,

Today, I'll be reviewing a lipstick from Lancome that I got as a gift with purchase. The Color Design lipsticks are available anywhere Lancome is sold and retail for $22.00.

What Lancome says about their Color Design Lipsticks...

If your lips long for full, fade-free color in tempting textures, and a shade selection that would inspire any makeup artist; the search is over. This luxurious lipstick is infused with soothing ingredients, so lips feel soft and comforted all day. Choose from five fabulous finishes: cream, sheen, shimmer, metallic and matte.


  • GWP packaging looks different than the original packaging. It's more plain & simple.
  • .14 oz or 4g

  • Pretty Burgundy is a nice plummy red with a cream finish.
  • It's probably not the creamiest lipsticks I've tried but it still applies smoothly. It feels slightly moisturizing and quite comfortable. It doesn't slip or slide and even wearing it without a lipliner, I found that it didn't feather either.
  • Need to exfoliate and moisturize prior to application as it tend to highlight dry skin. 
  • It lasted 4 hours easily and left a stain behind that lasted over 8 hours
  • It is unscented, something I really don't mind. 

Final Thought

I love the color. I'm always drawn to berry and plummy reds. The pigmentation was great and color lasted for a very long time. The formula is conditioning enough to keep your lips comfortable for the first 4 hours. I love receiving these lipsticks as a GWP.

  1. Your rock that shade! I love your swatches very true to shade!

    1. Thank you. I try to keep the swatches are true as possible :)

  2. That color looks Soooo good on you! I'm always kind oh "meh" about the color design formula, but maybe that's because it can't even think of a lipstick formula I love!

    1. Yeah they're not the best I've ever tried but still fairly good I think.

  3. Oh wow. I've never tried a burgundy shade before. Looks so pretty on you.

    1. It's a pretty nice gift with purchase. If I were to pay for it, I'd want something more moisturizing though
