15 shades in total, and I got 4 more 😛 so the rest of the shades I did not like or were not available were:
Oak table, was not there at Shopper’s stop. Rose management was too sheer for me, Brownie point was a regular brown and again, Coffee Command was not there, so I am pleased to tell you I have managed to hoard most since I am a matte lip lover and these shades are way to wearable every day to miss out 😀
Check out this shade in Red coat, which is like a come back of the shade red hot from the earlier version, but this is also matte and red and a face-brightening red so I had to get it! 🙂 This is the only red in the 15 shade they came out with and I also got wine play, pink slip and peony goal. 😛
This one is a super bright red, no shimmer but it is a true red, no orange or pinky strong undertones, but this is a classic red lip candidate,the shade goes on very very matte, and it is so pigmented that it goes out of control , plus it gets so difficult to stay with in the lip lines, I strongly suggest you use a lip brush for application, it does not set to a dry finish but still it kind of sets a bit.
The lipstick looks on the orange side on my lips, I dont know why, but honestly it really really brightens the face up. If you pair this with a black winged liner and just compact, then you are good to go glam anywhere, try using it for evening or for some function but you could use this as a stain and get brighter face instead of using it for full lip application. I had a had time applying it since it is so bold I has to be careful with this going outside the lip line hence forth I will be using a lip brush for the same 🙂
The lip color survives meals leaving a very pretty tint back, and I like it that way as well, of course the color could get patchy since it is so bold, you need to even it out with your fingers if possible. I would say the staying power is pretty good since it is matte and bold.
The best part is that this is very similar to Chambor Rubis rouge, and in fact,Lakme Red coat goes on 50% more matte then the Chambor one,( that will bring me to the downside very soon below) Both the reds are classic face brightening reds and I love both of them , the Chambor one goes on thicker and cakey but Lakme one is very light in comparison.
Now since it is so matte I have started to find it a bit drying honestly, I dont know what the case will be with dry lips, as I dont have dry lips and still it gets a little drying on me, of course nothing that a balm or gloss cannot cure but for the shade I think I will let it go, may be use it very lightly, two coats are not required since it is so pigmented.
Left : Chambor, Right, Lakme
A classic face brightening red, a dupe for Chambor Rubis rouge and goes hand in hand with Lakme’s own classic red and red hot lipsticks. It could be a little drying and best applied with a lip brush, matte lip lovers check it out.
Coming up soon, Pink Slip, Peony Goal and Wine Play for the same collection.
4/5 (Had it not been drying)
