Lakme Absolute Matte Lip Color 47 Classic Rose

Lakme Absolute Matte Lip Color 47 Classic Rose

Amongst all the furore, I would like to keep my head on my shoulders while I write this review and let you guys know whether you should go and spend your 375 rupees on this lipstick. I know we all are very excited to lay our hands on something from the Absolute Range of Lakme or perhaps at least go and see the entire collection; even I was too excited, but having been there and done that, I am at peace and in the right mood to review this lipstick from the Absolute range.

Classic Rose

Lakme

Price:
Rs. 375 for 3. 6 ml.

Lakme Absolute Classic Red Lipsick

Available at all leading Lakme outlets.  For our Chennai readers, I got it from Shopper’s Stop.

Lakme Absolute Matte Lipstick

Product Description:
Lakme Absolute Matte is enriched with vitamin E and wheat germ oil to keep lips soft, silky and smooth lips. Its non-drying creamy formula keeps the lips hydrated with a matte finish.

Lakme Classic Red Lipstick

Now before I start, it is very important for us to know that we are perceiving this new range from two points of view:

  • First, from a view that compares Absolute with Lakme’s other ranges.
  • Second, as a makeup product, as a solitary lipstick out of all the buzz around and without Lakme’s earlier impressions that we have in mind.

Lakme red classic

I am going to review it as a solitary lipstick and not going to think “can’t believe this is Lakme and wow what a face lift and so on!”

First Impression:

:yawn: just like Lakme Nine to Five lipsticks, which I have got tons of, oh and nice gunmetal packaging makes it look classier.  The formula, let’s see if it got any better. The lipstick casing is a nice grey this time as opposed to the cream and gold from Nine to Five.Apart from that, I could see that this lipstick is more pigmented and glided better than my Nine to Five ones.

Lakme lip

Okay, so Absolute is more pigmented, deeper, and glides better.

Lakme red classic

The lipstick goes on absolutely matte and stays put and feels lighter in the beginning, but with time, it gets drier and drier on the lips. Personally, I never have dry lips, but this lipstick made my lips feel dry and made me feel as if I am wearing something on my lips.

Lakme red lipstick

The color here is a classic deep orange based red and it really brightens the face up for me . I like oranges and orange-based reds rather than the blue-based one for warming up my face. It is very pigmented and glides on well and sets too, but since it is matte, it does settle in fine lines for me, making my lips drier with time.

Swatches

It lasted me a whopping 6 hours with meals, fruits, several pecks to my baby, and it definitely is transfer resistant, but it is not at all moisturising, kind of matte. :nababana:

It fades to a mild stain (these do stain) and fades patchy since it is dry in texture.

Lip swatch 1

Lip swatch 02

It fades from here and there and not evenly. I suggest you to check your lips after a meal and re-apply.

The logo is new for Absolute which is fine with me, no great shakes, packing is nice too.  I like the flat top of lipsticks for ease of application.

Other Recommendations:

There were only five shades I liked. For peach lovers, I recommend Peach Carnation.  Mauve lovers can get Grape Blossom.

Lakme Absolute Lipsticks

Lakme Absolute Lipstick Swatches

Brilliant Kiss is a darker pink and the red one is the one I got which is Classic Rose.  There were some browns as well, but I have enough browns from Nine to Five range. :yawn:

Last Word:

As a lipstick, it is not moisturisingly matte, it is in fact very drying for a person like me who never has dry lips. The colors are good but nothing that I have never seen. The packing is nice, the logo average.

Lakme Lipsticks

These are just like 9 to 5, even a little more drying, deeper pigmented and glides better, these set and don’t transfer.  These stay for a very long time, about six hours definitely, but then are patchy too.

Red lipstick

Do I Recommend Lakme Absolute Matte Lip Color:

These are just like 9 to 5, trust me, same price, more pigmented and more drying.  If you really fall for some color out of the Absolute range and the 9 to 5 range, you can pick any, no difference.  Unfortunately, for me (usually never have dry lips), it is uncomfortably drying.

Lakme 9 to 5 lipsticks

Lakme Lipstick

Please do not get these if you have dry lips. I would not say you have to get one, but do check these at the counter.  I understand there was a hype created, but don’t be smitten by the hype to spend 375 rupees, phut! Here goes the bubble!

The color is a pretty orange red, but you can get better moisturising red lipsticks too.

Rating:
3.2 on 5 (I have used better matte lipsticks).

Coming up are the reviews of the highlighter, bronzer, and the concealer!

Liked your honest and detailed review. I like ur non diplomatic way of reviewing :waytogo:
I’ll stay away from them as I have dry lips and not a big fan of matte lippies :yawn:

I love the shade . I am loving my Chamor Orange Falmbe these days. You r right that these orange shades really brighten up the face ……. Wish it was not so drying. But I too have dry lips , so I’ll stay away from this

Actually I personally feel most of the products in this line are a relaunch from the 9 to 5 collection with some more additions thrown in… :-/

neha November 28, 2011 at 6:51 pm

i would second that in case of lippies
but eyeshadows are new and the bronzer and hilighter too
and so are the blushes new:)

It is a gorgeous shade neha, i like the fact that it has no blue tones…but will that make up for the drying part?

Pragnyadeepta November 29, 2011 at 3:21 pm

Not for me. :nababana: :nababana: My lips seem to think that it’s good to randomly start cracking and flaking…so I’m assuming they won’t be very happy with this. :ghost: :ghost:
