Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte Tint – Starlet Red, Raving Red : Swatches, Review, Look

 

Hey everyone!

Lakme’s big launch this season is the Lip Pout Matte Tints and I’ve reviewed two shades from the range previously – Pink Fantasy and Tangerine Touch. Today I’m reviewing 2 reds from the collection – Starlet Red (a coral tinged red) and Raving Red (a cool toned red). This range contains 6 vibrant shades of matte lip crayons and soon-to-be launched 10 creme lip colors.

Price : Rs 650

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 color. I was disappointed to notice that one of my crayons (Starlet Red) broke while I was applying it. Since they are a bit on the dry side, you would be tempted to put more pressure (like I did!) during application which can result is the crayon breaking off.

 

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! If you like matte lipsticks, do try out at least 1 lip color from this range!

In this post, I’ve tried out the shades Starlet Red which is a coral tinged warm red and Raving Red which is a cooler red. To be honest, these might not look very distinct from each other on the lips but I can tell the clear difference when I put these on! I personally like Raving Red a little more since its deeper and cooler and I like those shades on myself.

Rating : 4.25/5
