My Take on Lakme Absolute Lip Last:

I am very excited to write this review as this is my first liquid lipstick with a unique brush. I was very excited to get this lip last, rather, I was very keen to know and try a lipstick that lasts on the lips for such a long period of time, i.e., as claimed, up to 16 hours. :toothygrin:

Brush

Before coming to the quality and staying power, I will describe the packaging. The casing is very special, chic, classy and tasteful. There is this very soft and supple brush applicator that deposits the color uniformly.  It makes me apply the color over and over again on my lips.

Pink

Each finish smells lovely.  As the finish is matte, it does not add any glaze to the lips after drying. However, if I apply a transparent lip gloss over it, then it adds a light to sheer color on to the lips. The liquid is a little bit thick and sticky.  I mean, up until it is wet, you might feel the stickiness, but as soon as it dries, you will not even remember you have applied anything on your lips.

Super Long Wear

If you are thinking to apply just one stroke, then it might be possible that you would not be satisfied with the result, but after two or three times of application, the color comes on the lips. The main reason for me to like this “lip last” is the applicator given with it. The applicator makes it easier to dispense the color precisely on the lips. The only drawback is that the applicator in the long run may collect bacteria which can be unhygienic.

Applicator

Coming to the staying power, as the company claims of 16 hours of long-lasting color, I am not convinced.  According to my personal experience, it is nowhere near 16 hours. It hardly lasts up to 2 hours and that too without eating. I love this shade, but I do not think that I will be getting any other shade of this “lip last” because of its short staying power.

Pros of Lakme Absolute Lip Last:

  • Pleasant, but a bit expensive.
  • A lot of shades to choose from.
  • The casing is chic, classy.
  • Awesome pigmentation with matte finish.
  • The flavor or scent of the tube doesn’t irritate me.
  • Pretty good packaging.
  • Easy to carry around.

Cons of Lakme Absolute Lip Last:

  • The gloss is quite sticky, but the stickiness does not stay on the lips for long.  If you have a problem with sticky glosses, you may not like it.
  • The shine and color are not long lasting.
  • Pricey.
  • 16 hours  claim is not true.

Do I Recommend Lakme Absolute Lip Last?

Yes I do, the shades are droolworthy and the packaging is stylish, but consider the staying power also if you plan to buy.

Great review, Sugi! :woot: :yes: I love the colour! :inlove: Too bad about the staying power though. Shame that a rather expensive product doesn’t live up to its claims. :spank:
