Lakme Absolute Plump & Shine 6-Hour 3D Gloss – Candy Shine – Review, Photos, Swatches

Hello Everybody,

Aren’t we all going bonkers with the newly-launched Lakme Absolute range? Here’s another item from this range which I picked up – the Lakme Absolute Plump & Shine Upto 6 Hour 3D Gloss in the shade Candy Shine.

Price:

Rs. 375 for 3 ml.

Product Features:

Lakme Absolute Plump & Shine is a revolutionary 3D lip gloss with its long-lasting formula and high pigmentation properties.

It contains Marine Collagen and high shine pigments to keep lips plump and hydrated.

  • Revolutionary 3D lip gloss.
  • Contains Marine Collagen and high shine pigments to keep lips plump and hydrated.
  • Lasts up to 6 hours.

How To Use:

Apply evenly on lips and rub together for an even distribution of gloss. you can also put a small amount on your finger and spread around your lips.

Lakme Absolute Lip Gloss

Available in 4 other shades : Coral Shine, Plum Shine, Berry Shine and Beige Shine.

Let me say here that I’m more of a lipstick person, but the main thing that attracts me about lip glosses is that most of them contain shimmer and/or glitter and I get completely attracted to that, as well as the high shine that glosses impart, making the lips look really “sesky,” heehehe  (Jomol likes gold, but I like glitter!).

This gloss comes in a long, round glass container; I can’t use the word ‘tube’ here, can I, with a silver metallic lid, and no outer packaging except for a tight, cellophane wrapping.

Lakme Candy Shine

I picked this particular shade for the simple reason that it looked the brightest of the lot. It’s really a beautiful candy pink with magenta pink, purple and silver shimmer, and it has a faint candy-minty kind of fragrance, which goes away immediately upon application.  It has a sponge-tip applicator. The texture of the gloss is thicker than normal lip glosses, but it spreads very well and one doesn’t feel that it’s thick at all.

Lakme Lip Gloss Candy Shine Swatch

This gave good colour and very high shine when applied, but the sponge-tip applicator picks up very little amount of product at a time, just about enough to cover half of your upper or lower lips, so I had to repeatedly dip the applicator back and forth in the ‘tube’ to get decent coverage and colour.

Lakme Lip Gloss

This gave me over 4 hours of wear time, in between then I had a meal and a coffee, and it was still there after that, but had lightened out in colour quite a bit.

Let’s list down the Pros and Cons for you :

Pros of Lakme Absolute Plump & Shine 6-Hour 3D Gloss – Candy Shine:

  • Is a lovely, bright, candy pink shade.
  • Gives a very high-shine finish.
  • Claims to last up to 6 hours.
  • Plumps up the lips due to its high shine, but doesn’t feel tingly on lips.
  • The shimmer in this doesn’t feel heavy or gritty.
  • Looks lovely on its own and also when layered over lipstick, extends the wear time of the lipstick.
  • Most long-wearing glosses tend to become sticky on the lips over time, but this was not the case with this one.
  • Doesn’t feather or bleed.
  • Fades evenly.

Cons of Lakme Absolute Plump & Shine 6-Hour 3D Gloss – Candy Shine:

  • Very small amount comes out on the applicator and requires quite a few dips back and forth for good colour pay-off.
  • Being a long-wear gloss, is a little thicker than normal lip glosses (but doesn’t feel sticky).
  • No brochures/literature available on this range, neither has Lakme updated their website. They should have at least done these things after creating such a hype about this Absolute Range.

Final Word on Lakme Absolute Plump & Shine 6-Hour 3D Gloss – Candy Shine:

I am very happy with this colour and I may buy another gloss from this range later; but looking forward now to their crème lipsticks and long-lasting liquid lip colors.

Am never into Gloss coz it makes me feel Gross (Trying to rhyme :silly: ) with its chip-chipa feel & beggarly poor staying power. But this seems worth-giving-a-try… :thumbsup:

Sabrina November 29, 2011 at 7:13 pm

Me too, yet I have so many glosses, but I still love my high coverage lipsticks first! :)

Hmm I think I’m gonna skip this. I like my glosses without shimmer. Waiting for the lip last range to be launched. I’m very much into long lasting lip colours nowadays.

Sabrina November 29, 2011 at 7:15 pm

Yes I know, there are many more products to be launched in the Absolute range. :)

I love shimmery stuff, but then I think quite a few ladies prefer their glosses without the shimmer.

Shimmer! :shying: :jiggy1: :jalwa: :happydance: I looove shimmery glosses! :love:
And this shade is sooo cute! :teddy: But It really isn’t my cup of tea at the moment. :methinks: I’m more attracted to lippies these days. :preen: I’m sure that once I get a few more lippies,I’ll go back and get some glosses too. I’ll see if I get drawn to this cutie then. :victory2:
It really flatters your skin tone,Sabrina! Lovely. :puchhi:

Sabrina December 1, 2011 at 2:26 am

:thanks: so much, Pragnyadeepta. I’m also more of a lippie person. :D
