Previously, I had reviewed a few red-toned shades from Lakme’s Argan Oil lip color range on IMBB – check out “Smooth Merlot,” “Crimson Silk,” “Drenched Red,” “Ruby Velvet” by clicking on the respective links. Now, I thought why not try a pink and another orange as well. With pink being our favourite, I thought about reviewing the pink shade called “Pink Satin” first. This turned out to be something I did not expect it to be. 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 10 Pink Satin Argan Oil Lip Color:
This lipstick comes in a golden packaging which is not metallic. The label is not color coded. “Pink Satin” is a very cool-toned pink shade with very slight slick shiny finish to it. It is not matte in any way. Now, I love flat cut lipstick shape, but I have some serious issues with this one. The other lipsticks from this range felt thicker and much smoother than this one.
Pink Satin has medium coverage, feels like those old Lakme lipsticks which our moms had. This has that old lipstick’s oily slick finish, which is neither glossy nor creamy. It has to be built up and then it has this oily sheen which looks even worse. I don’t like this lip color one bit as it does nothing for my lips. I had expected it to be thick, buttery, but did not expect this kind of a feel. This feels like your Elle 18 lipstick which would cost you just 100 bucks. I am highly disappointed in the finish of this lipstick.
The color is a cool-toned pink which will be great for all young girls out there as well as for ladies in their 30s. This lipstick lasts for 3-4 hours and the opacity needs to be built up. The color leaves a pink stain behind that is not too exciting either.
Pros of Lakme Absolute 10 Pink Satin Argan Oil Lip Color:
- A cool pink lipstick for all age groups.
- Imparts light to medium coverage.
Cons of Lakme Absolute 10 Pink Satin Argan Oil Lip Color:
- Leaves stain behind.
- Has an oily, slick feel and finish that old Lakme lipsticks used to have.
- Very expensive considering the quality.
- Tube should have been metallic.
- Needs to be built up in layers for opacity.
- Doesn’t enhance the lip shape at all.
Would I Recommend/Repurchase Lakme Absolute 10 Pink Satin Argan Oil Lip Color?
Would not recommend or repurchase this shade. I wasted a lot of my money on it. I don’t like the finish and feel to it. I have better creamy lipsticks sans argan oil.
