My take on the product
The name of the product is quite a mouthful but it explains it quite well. Its a long lasting glossy lip color that gives full coverage to the lips along with lasting shine. The product comes in a silver tube packaging with a band of fuchsia plastic in between. which carries the trademark Lancome rose logo. All shades have the same fuchsia plastic band irrespective of the shade of the lip color. At this price, I feel they could have incorporated a little more in the packaging- so that its easy to identify shades. Maybe the plastic band could have been the same color as the lip color inside. Apart from this small point, I quite like the packaging. I looks classy and is quite sturdy. It has a flat spatula like wand applicator which makes it very easy to apply the product on the lips.
The texture of the lip shine is quite thick and creamy and mildly sticky. It gives opaque color and incredible shine in single swipe and one doesn’t need to dip the wand back for more product to cover the lips. It also contains fine shimmer that adds to the shine.
Since its a long lasting lip color, it does give a bit of sticky feeling when the lips are pressed together but apart from that it wears quite comfortably on the lips. The formula is moisturizing and doesn’t dry out the lips. I find that unlike many other glossy lip products, it doesn’t smoothen the fine lines of the lips but doesn’t accentuate them either. But I wouldn’t recommend this for ageing women who need a little more moisture and smoothening out effect from their lip products.
The staying power is amazing, its stays on for 6-8 hours depending on meals in between. It doesn’t dry out the lips but I do feel like applying some balm/gloss after about 5-6 hours of wear. Since the formula is a little sticky, it tends to attract a bit of food particles at times so its a good idea to check your lips after a meal to make sure there’s nothing adhering to it. As it fades, it doesn’t leave behind gritty shimmer on the lips, the color and shimmer fade together evenly.
It has a mild sharp spicy fragrance which reminds me of Avon perfect wear everlasting gloss. In fact the formula seems similar too though Lancome one fares better.
The shade 308 Rose Daria :
Its a brownish coral/brick shade containing significant shimmer. When freshly applied on the lips, it comes out more glossy than shimmery. As it fades, the shimmer becomes more prominent than the gloss after about 3+ hours of wear. The color would suit almost all skin tones and can be worn lightly also. Its a gorgeous warm shade that can be worn alone also and paired with smokey looks as well. What I love about this shade is that its neither too nude nor too dark and hence quite versatile.
The GOOD about Lancome Paris La Laque Fever ultimate lasting full color lipshine 308 Rose Daria :

- Creamy, smooth texture
- Gives opaque color in single swipe
- Glossy finish that lasts a long time
- Stays through meals too, lasts for 6-8 hours
- Shimmer is non-gritty
- Formula does not dry out the lips
- Good shade selection
- The shade 308 Rose Daria will suit most complexions
- Packaging could have been more convenient

Here’s how it looks on me :
Can be worn with a soft smokey eye too :
Its a long lasting opaque lip color that gives 6-8 hours of color and shine to the lips without drying them out. The formula is good and stays as long and even longer than the claim however it comes with the slight sticky/stretchy feeling that most long lasting lip products give. The shade 308 Rose Daria is a coral-brick shade with lots of shimmer that’ll suit all complexions and can be paired with many eye looks and colors. At this price I feel the packaging could have been a little better- so that one can easily identify shades.
The formula is a more refined and better performing version of Avon perfect wear everlasting gloss.
Will recommend it to those looking for a glossy long lasting lip color but wouldn’t recommend to women with very chapped lips.
