Review & Swatches of MASABALIPS? Yes, you read it right. I am going to write about 2 beauties from the latest launch from Lakme – Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte, nick named as MASABALIPS, since the lip pouts are created in collaboration with Masaba Gupta. I wonder how Lakme is coming up with so many new lip colors every month. I could not resist the colorful & funky packaging the chubby lipsticks come packaged into. Let’s not wait any more and jump straight into a pond of color & intensity- Lakme Lip Pout.
Lakme Absolute Lip Pouts Matte Masaba Lip Color
This is a limited edition & exclusive collection of vibrant & matte crayon lip colors. The collection is designed by Masaba, hence the name, Masabalips… experience & explore the rich creamy textured matte lip crayons in 10 exciting & vibrant shades.
Rs. 750 for 3.7 g.
I would say, funky & chubby. The chubby lipsticks or crayon lipsticks whatever you like to call them, come in retractable /twist-up colorful crayon like packaging. Glad that the crayons need not to be sharpened, as they are retractable.
Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte Masaba Lip – Bubble Pink Comes in a light blue & pink themed packaging where the blue color depicts of the sky while clouds are baby pink with few hot pink balloons floating over them. The outer card box of Bubble Pink is all yellow with splashes of hot pink color. Very vibrant, I tell you.
Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte Masaba Lip Color – Cotton Candy, is rather a brown-black-mustard color themed crayon lipstick with some zigzag pattern while the cap of the crayon has few musical symbols printed over it. It looks interesting. The outer packaging of Cotton Candy is also same as the crayon.
Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte Masaba Lip Color Shades
Hot Chocolate, Sugar-n-Spice, Bubble Pink, Orange Candy, Role-a-Cola, Cotton Candy, Hot Pink Queen, Cherry Bite, Caramel Toffee, Smokey Bite
I got only 2 shades of Masaba Lips, because, I recently shopped a lot from Lakme 9 To 5 Primer + Matte range. Just to test the texture & performance, I got Bubble Pink & Cotton Candy, since I loved the shade names.
As the name suggests, it’s a bubblegum pink, a cool toned pink, my all time favorite pink. It’s a fabulous shade and won’t wash you out. It would flatter every skin tone. Very pretty shade.
It is beautiful peachy brown shade. A versatile nude shade. I have been wearing it almost every day. This is my current favorite every day lipstick.
Fragrance & Texture
Maybe it’s just me but, the crayons smell like chocolates mildly, a plus point for me. Texture wise the lipsticks are very creamy, more creamy than Lakme Enrich Crayons & Lakme 9 To 5 Primer + Matte series. They glide on my lips like butter & stays there with the same level of creaminess for hours.
Very high. Love the color pay off these lippies have been giving. I think for the price, they must deliver the same level of pigmentation & performance. The color is very intense, one swipe and your lips get an opaque layer of color. But just because the texture is so creamy & smooth, I like to glide them again and again and again… !!!
Stays like forever. I really mean it. The crayons can survive full meals. It does transfer a bit (maybe because I put so many layers), but the intensity does not reduce/fade. I have worn it for at least 5-6 hours, with no smudges or melt down. I retouched the formula & I was again set for another couple of hours. I think this is very commendable performance for a moisturizing lipstick. Before this, I have experienced such kind of performance from SUGAR Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipsticks.
It’s matte. Completely & utterly matte. Fabulously matte. It’s not that accentuating-fine-lines matte though. The creamy formula takes care that the lips stay nourished but the finish is matte.
Overall, Pigmentation, longevity, packaging & finish are up to the mark. I feel if you can really overlook the price, it’s a great grab, you won’t be disappointed. It’s a limited edition collection, there are only 10 shades, that’s heartbreaking too. Hope Lakme comes with more shades in the range soon. ❤❤❤❤❤
Would you go for such expensive but performing lipsticks? Does price matter when your lipstick love takes a hike?
