Get ready for another Lip Smacking range from Lakme Absolute Luxe Matte Lip Color With Argan Oil. I got a hold on Grand Fuchsia & Rosy Lips. Even though it’s costly but when a lipstick’s name spells LUXE, I could not control my urge to splurge. These lipsticks are another birthday gift to myself. And tell you what, I am not regretting the purchase.
Lakme Absolute Lip colors were such a hit. Lakme Absolute is reinvented again with Luxe series. The slimstick packaging is almost the same as the previous series, so is the texture only better. So if you love wearing matte but moisturizing shades, you are sure going to find your perfect lipstick with this range.
Lakme Absolute Luxe Matte Lip Color With Argan Oil
Lakme Absolute Luxe Matte Lip Color range is infused with Argan Oil. This new range of Slimsticks from Lakme ensures you receive full color, long stay and moisture at the same time. The finish of the lipsticks give a luxurious feeling. Lips stays colored & moisturized for long. All the shades are vibrant and suitable to Indian skin tones.
Price & Availability
Rs. 800 for 2gm. Pretty expensive. Costlier than the previous range. Lakme is itself becoming a luxury brand itself. Exclusively available on Nykaa.
Not provided on the packaging.
Lakme presents this new range of Slimsticks which have quite a luxurious look to justify the name & the price tag. The packaging literally qualifies for premium range of lipsticks. The slimsticks are shiny gold with black interior and come in black card box. Sadly no ingredient list is provided on inner or outer packaging. But the lipstick features, price & other manufacturing details are provided.
Shade – Grand Fuchsia
It is one fabulous fuchsia shade. It is really vibrant shade. It is going to suit even dark skin tones since it is not Neon pink but bit warm toned pink. It brightens up my face and love to wear it for outings.
Shade – Rosy Lips
This is quite an every day shade. It is muted pink. It has some brown undertones, again suitable for every skin tone for daily wear. It also goes well with an understated look.
Fragrance & Texture
There is not much fragrance to be smelled out of these lipsticks. But yes one can try and smell a faint artificial smell which is not pungent but not much pleasing either. Since it’s not noticeable hence not an issue for me. These lipsticks does not taste weird but I feel like I have painted my lips with a color. They kind of form a layer over lips.
The texture of the lipsticks is pretty smooth & creamy hence moisturizing. They glide easily over my lips. Since the tip goes quite blunt easily, I must use a lip liner to create the outline first and then fill in the lipstick.
I find that the pigmentation of the lipsticks is good. It does not require many swipes to get opaque lips full of color. Infused with Argan Oil, glides easily over lips and yields nice color. Keeping the lipsticks open for some time make the lipstick texture go bit dry.
The lipsticks give complete matte finish. Even though it contains Moroccan Argan Oil, there is not a trace of glossiness in the finish. There is bit of paint feeling over lips after the lipstick is set.
The staying power of these lipsticks is really nice. Once set, the lipsticks do not transfer and that is the reason the lipsticks lasts long. I wore them for 6-7 hours while having full course meal without touch ups. After 6-7 hours I noticed the color was dull. I feel the lipsticks perform really well in this area.
Will I Repurchase Lakme Absolute Luxe Matte Lip Color With Argan Oil?
I am really impressed by the texture, pigmentation and staying power of the lipsticks is very impressive and the wide range of colors really attracts me to the range. But 800 bucks matter. I might give in for another shade but don’t see myself buying more than that form the range. It’s too costly. I can rather get a MAC lipstick with few more bucks.
Summary : ❤❤❤❤❤
Lakme Absolute Luxe Matte Lip Color With Argan Oil does not require an introduction. The lipsticks are reinvented from Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Matte Lip Color. The texture, pigmentation & longevity are very impressive. The packaging is very beautiful and gives a luxurious feeling. But the price is really high. Even though the performance of the lipsticks justifies the price tag, but shelling out 800 bucks for a single lipstick is not easy for everybody.
Lipsticks kind of give me hangover. It feels great to experience a new piece. What you think? Have you tried this range? If not, would you like to try out this range? Leave your comments.
