I have another lovely lipstick from Lakme’s Argan Oil Lip Color range after reviewing “Smooth Merlot.” If Smooth Merlot was too dull for you, take a look at this bright coral orange sort of a red color. This is again the same formula like “Smooth Merlot,” but “Drenched Red” has more of a shine, in my opinion. If you love reds, have a look:
The power of traditional argan oil, now in your favourite lipstick. Say hello to argan oil infused lip colors, the all new invention by Lakmé. These lipsticks nourish your lips while delivering intense color. The best of both worlds is now a reality with its nourishing power as well as rich pigments. It has a beautiful creamy texture that gives your lips a smooth and silky finish. Available in 15 vibrant shades that complement all Indian skin tones, Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color is where the power of argan oil comes to life!
Argan oil as a base makes for a wonderful lip treatment – almost like a replacement for chap sticks/lip balms. They can heal cracked lips and also keep them soft, smooth and conditioned. The use of this argan oil based lipstick during the cold seasons is perfect to prevent rough and dry lips.
My Experience with Lakme Absolute 08 Drenched Red Argan Oil Lip Color:
“Drenched Red” has the same formula as Lakme Absolute in “Bella Rose” shade. This shade has strong coral and orange tones to it. The color is a popping red and has a soft glossy texture.
I think I love my red lipsticks to be matte. This lipstick has some sheen to it due to which it’s best to wear in the evenings and night time. This color is a pure face brightening red. I do suggest this lipstick to fair and medium skin tones. This color has no maroon tones hence deep skin tones may find it very bright for their complexion.
Drenched Red is a “face brightening” shade. The texture is not that buttery but it is creamy to apply. You will find it pretty much opaque in one to two swipes. The color pigmentation is very nice and it lifts up any dull face immediately.
This lipstick stays on for 3-5 hours depending on how much you coat it on. It does not bleed since it has a slightly sticky feel, so it will not bleed out of the lip line.
Pros of Lakme Absolute 08 Drenched Red Argan Oil Lip Color:
- Smooth to apply.
- Two coats give me opacity.
- Bright popping red shade.
- Good for evening wear and parties.
- Keeps lips moist and supple.
Cons of Lakme Absolute 08 Drenched Red Argan Oil Lip Color:
- I expected it to be more buttery in texture.
- I expected a heavy metallic packaging.
- I wish they had color-coded labels/stickers.
- Could be too bright for “red lipstick virgins.” 😛
