Few days back I swatched all the shades of the Lakme Absolute Lip tints HERE. And now the series of individual reviews begins! I’ve already reviewed the shade Pink Sorbet which I liked – both shade and formula-wise. Peach Please however was a different story.
Price : Rs 800 for 2 g
My take on the Product
I ranted enough about the packaging in the previous review so I won’t go over that whole thing again. In a nutshell, I feel it could have been prettier and more attractive, I just find it a little drab.
The texture of all the shades in this range is quite creamy and smooth. But not to the point of melting in the tube or crumbling during application. The pigmentation and wear time varies from shade to shade. Peach Please is a soft sheer peach color containing shimmer. On most Indian skin tones, this would be a very nude shade and would not give opaque coverage to pigmented lips. I don’t like how it looks on my medium complexion and slightly pigmented lips. Dusky girls should stay away from this, in my opinion it would look unflattering on medium to dusky complexions.
What I really dislike about this shade is that it gets patchy on the lips (being very creamy) and just adds to the whole general unflattering look. I don’t like the way Lakme does shimmer in their lip products – its too chunky and sticks on the lips once the color fades off. Peach Please – being so light and non-staining, wore only about 3 hours on me and faded off significantly with a meal. The only redeeming feature is that the formula is moisturizing and if your lips are feeling really dry, it softens them up and gives a comfortable feeling. But in doing so, it still LOOKS really weird and patchy on the lips. I actually had to do a lot of work of exfoliating my lips properly and applying the color in layers to make it look decent for the pictures.
Unless you’re very fair skinned and in love with the color, I would not recommend this to you. I have been testing the other shades from the Lip tints which I’ve liked a lot but this one is just a big disappointment!
The GOOD about Lakme Absolute Lip Tint Peach Please :
- Smooth, creamy texture
- Glides without tugging on the lips
- Feels very moisturizing
- Softens up the lips
The NOT-SO-GOOD about Lakme Absolute Lip Tint Peach Please :
- Chunky shimmer
- Looks patchy
- Low wear time
- Unflattering shade for medium to dusky complexions
- Packaging could have been more attractive
If you’re going to shell out Rs 800 on the Lakme Absolute Lip tints, Peach Please is not the one to go for. The shade is a soft nude peach with shimmer that may work for fair skin but I really dislike the chunky shimmer and patchy appearance that this shade acquires on my lips. Being sheer, it doesn’t give much cover for pigmented lips. The Poptints range has some really good shades, this one was a disappointment.
