Lakme Absolute Sculpt Studio Matte Lipstick REVIEW

 

These lipsticks come in a gunmetal grey packaging with a clear cap. The lipstick has a slanted, flat tip which adds to the modern look of the packaging though I personally prefer the traditional pointed bullet shape. The lipstick has a smooth texture and a true matte finish. These are not the creamiest lipsticks though – if you have dry, rough lips, these would not go on smoothly. They definitely look and perform best on smooth, moisturized lips. I wouldn’t say that they have a dry texture because they do feel quite smooth but a little prep is required when you wear a matte lipstick.

The color pay off is quite good – they give rich color without requiring much layering. But I noticed that these are not 100% opaque so if you have uneven lips, a bit of that may show through unless you layer the lipstick a couple of times. They feel quite comfortableΒ without being too dry or overly creamy giving a really neat, matte finish. They fade very evenly so you’re not left a dark ring around your lips after a few hours. The wear time varies with the shade but on the whole, these are long wear lipsticks and all the colors wore at least 4-5 hours on lips with light meals in between (they don’t stain very much). For once, Lakme hasn’t gone overboard with the pricing too! These are definitely one of the really good, true matte lipsticks in the Indian market right now and if you like matte lip colors, these really deserve a place in your kit!

Rating : 4.5/5

Pink Caress is a warm yellow-based pink that is super flattering on my medium complexion. This is my favorite color from the 3 shades I tested because it looks really fresh! The color brightens up my face and I see myself wearing this a lot during the summers especially in the day time. This is great color for daily wear for ladies who like pink lipsticks. The color doesn’t look as great on a bare face though so I would recommend using a light base to even out your skin when you wear this.

Plum Spell is a rich, plum-tinged red color. This is a lovely color for evening wear, parties etc. and I think its would be especially flattering on deeper complexions. I see myself wearing this more in the cooler months, its just that kind of color that you like reaching for on a cool day!

Tangerine Lush is a vibrant orange color that is perfect for the summer! The color is bright but not neon and quite wearable because of its blood orange tones (very yellow-y oranges are harder to carry). I think this is a great color for a summer bride!

        Yes Ankita! It looks lovely. But it's very similar to street wear pink persuasion lipstick in terms of color. Texture wise they both are different.

    I have been following your blog since a very long time now, and I like your make up tutorials, I have learned so much from them πŸ™‚ Very recently I have started writing as a hobby.
    The Pink caress shade is almost like the thrilling pink from colorbar which is about to say tah tah to me and I have to buy a new one. This Lakme one seems to be good as it is long staying. Please let me know if this one dries out your lips with time and settle in lip lines. The long staying lipsticks tends to do that.

    • May 13, 2015 / 9:00 pm

      If you use a lip balm underneath, its quite comfortable for around 4-5 hours after which is there is slight dryness. It doesn't look as fresh after few hours but doesn't really settle into lines.

  10. May 5, 2015 / 9:23 pm

    I loved all the 3 shades! Looks like worth a try these πŸ™‚

    Hey Ankita,
    Since you are also into Coral, you should try out Peach out. Thats a great coral and I am loving that so much now a days…
    Loved Pink Caress on you !

      Thanks for the recommendation Nita!

    the shade pink caress suits u best…
    At this 700 price range these lipsticks are really good.. but i didnt like the layering it.. maximum 2 swipes should be sufficient otherwise i dnt like it.. i have used Mac matte lipsticks & requires 1 swipe & lasts very long..

    • May 13, 2015 / 9:02 pm

      These are pretty pigmented so 2 layers would be fine but if someone has really uneven and pigmented lips, 1-2 more swipes would help in giving a fully opaque color.
