Lakme Absolute Matte Lip Tint Review
The new Lakme Absolute Lip Tints come in a twist up crayon packaging. The colored matte packaging makes color identification easy and goes with the playful pout theme that Lakme is channelling this season. I love the fact that these are twist up and don’t need sharpening! Coming to the formula, I found these to be slightly on the dry side and they can emphasise flaky bits if you don’t exfoliate and moisturize. But they are more forgiving that most liquid matte lipsticks I’ve tried. The color pay off is good though you need do a couple of passes to get a rich, bold opaque color.
Since they are quite matte, the wear time is excellent and they stayed on my lips for the whole day (7-8 hours) during Lakme Fashion Week with a bit of fading. They might make the lips dry after a couple of hours but nothing a good lip balm underneath wouldn’t sort out. When I first swatched these, I was a little disappointed with the texture but they apply well on the lips and don’t seem as drying once you have them on. At this price point, I think they are a really nice matte lipstick option in the market!
The matte range as 6 vibrant shades which might look a bit similar in swatches but are quite distinct on the lips. I have tried on Pink Fantasy (a vibrant berry pink) and Tangerine Touch (a rich orange) in this post and I think both are beautiful, wearable colors though I’m leaning more towards Pink Fantasy because I like pinks! If you like matte lipsticks, do try out at least 1 lip color from this range! My recommendations would Victorian Rose and Pink Fantasy.
