Lakme Absolute Forever Silk Lip Liner Chestnut Review

Lip liner gives lips a neatly-defined edge and can be used to help your lips stand out a major benefit since lips are one of the first features that people recognize in others. Lip liners provides a nice guide for lipstick application and can help keep your lipstick from bleeding or fading fast. Used correctly, it adds definition to the lip line, extends the wearability of lip color, and lends a hint of dimension and fullness to the lips. Lip liner has been used for years to make lips look more full and colorful. Outlining lips coated with lipstick with a lip liner gives the face a professionally finished appearance. Most lip liners are hard pencils and need to be sharpened. There are mechanical versions as well. This type of liner does not need to be sharpened and comes in retractable form- like the captioned lip liner.

Smooth and creamy. Glides easily on the lips.

Chestnut is lovely reddish brown shade which makes it suitable for most of the Indian skin tones.

My take on the product:

Lakme Absolute Forever Silk Lip Liner Chestnut has a colour intense formula that glides on evenly for perfectly defined lips. The pencil is very soft and has a creamy matte texture which is very light and smooth on the lips. It glides on easily, and never tugs or pulls the lips. Although it is matte texture it isn’t drying at all. The finish is matte, not glossy or shimmery. Very rich in pigmentation and give that lovely colour in just a single swipe. Being a lip liner it neither smears nor get smudged and help keeping your lipstick in place. It stays on easily for 4-5 hours owing to its waterproof nature .Being retractable, there is no need to sharpen, hence there is no product wastage. One can use it as a lip color as well, as it imparts a pretty reddish brown shade to the lips. The best thing is that it does not bleed or transfer when applied on the lips.
