Lolita Lempicka Elle L'Aime Mon Rouge Gift Set

Red lipsticks. They are like the LBD of the lipstick universe, are they not? Finding the perfect red lip color can be a hassle- choosing the right undertone, the intensity of the color, the feel, the finish...I could go on.

I have always shied away from red lipsticks. For a long time, I felt I couldn't carry it off. It's too bold of a color for me and I told myself if I would ever wear a red lip color, it would have to be the perfect one (ideally, one with a blue undertone and a matte finish). I happened to find what I was looking for and was happy with it. Then I got bored and started to look for an alternative (am I the only one who goes through this?). Time flew and I forgot about my quest for the perfect red lipstick but my makeup destiny had other plans.

I attended the Lolita Lempicka Mon Rouge lipstick launch event the other week and was introduced to a gorgeous red lip color.

This was easily one of the best events I attended. I loved the venue, the interior decoration specifically for the event, the catering...everything was detailed and captured the essence of the brand.

Makeup artist, Najla Kaddour transformed the model's day makeup to an evening look using Mon Rouge. Najla is one of those makeup artists who is down to earth and a real joy to talk to. She actually remembered one of my skincare discussions I had with her at a previous event!

Mon Rouge in 10 Rouge Lolita is a limited edition lipstick housed in a gift set featuring the Elle L'Aime fragrance. I appreciate brands that go the extra mile with packaging. How beautiful does the gift set look?

The fragrance is a fusion of coconut flower and lime topped off with jasmine and myrrh merge. It smells divine and the bottle is absolutely gorgeous.

The star product, the Mon Rouge lipstick is incredible for several different reasons. When I opened up the tube and saw the bullet, I thought this would be just another red lipstick. Everything changed with the first swipe. I loved how the color looked on me. This is the first time I applied a lipstick and was impressed from the get go.

The vibrant red glides on like silk and gives a luminous finish. It boasts of plant-based ingredients that help keeps the lips in top condition. Mon Rouge doesn't entirely survive a meal though, but that's the case with most lipsticks where touch-ups are necessary.

Overall, I absolutely love it. The Elle L'Aime Mon Rouge gift set is a great gifting option and has my seal of approval. I'd be delighted to receive this! This is a gift set that says, "Smell great, look great".

The gift set is available in Paris Gallery, Areej and selected outlets across the UAE and is priced at AED 315.
