Now, this is exactly what we needed to brighten up our morning! How stunning does actress Lupita Nyong’o look in her latest ad for Lancôme? As Lancôme Ambassadress, Lupita’s promoting Lancôme’s latest addition to the family – L’Absolu Rouge (six shades of bright pink and deep red rose inspired lipsticks).

And if you’re curious as to which shade Lupita’s wearing? It’s L’Absolu Rouge #160 in Rouge Amour.

Shot by famed photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, Lupita said, “Makeup for me is like the frame of an art piece. Wearing lipstick makes me feel well-dressed.”

Alright, excuse us while we raid our make-up bags for a red lippy to make us feel “well-dressed”. Yes, we’re chained to the desk all day….but we want to look as gorgeous as Lupita!
