I had picked up Pink Wink from this range, so had to get at least one red as I love wearing red these days. They instantly brighten up the face which I love. “When in doubt, wear red.”, remember? I totally agree with this quote and follow it all the time. Let’s see how this bright red lippie worked for me.

My Experience with Lakme Absolute Berry Crush Gloss Addict Lipstick:
Lakme has innovated a lot with their lip colours recently and has made amazing ranges to offer. I picked up 2 shades from this range. This one comes in a long, deep grey box with the lipstick inside. The lipstick comes in a dark silver cylindrical bottle with a transparent lid. The packaging is fancier than the 9to5 range which shows differentiation of price too. It is very handy and looks gorgeous in one’s kitty. But, we need to be pretty careful while closing the lid because the texture is very soft and it might just rip some lipstick off when closing it. This shade is a perfect red shade that will suit all the Indian skin tones, be it fair or dusky.
It is a bold red with pink undertones which makes it bold, but not extremely bold. The colour looks gorgeous and it instantly brightens up the face, like within seconds. If anyone is looking out for a good, red lipstick, but don’t have the confidence to carry one, this is a very good one to start with. The texture is buttery soft and glides very smoothly on the lips, giving a pop of colour with just one swipe. It has some small shimmers if you observe it closely, but they do not appear on the lips when you apply it. It is a highly pigmented shade with a balmy texture that gives you a boost of colour along with hydration to the lips.
It also gives a glossy shine that instantly attracts attention. It is very creamy and due to the super high pigmentation, but yet unlike the previous one, it does not settle into fine lines. The neon pink lipstick from the same range highlighted the chapped areas, this one did not. In fact, it provided good hydration to my chapped lips and they looked treated well. It stays very pigmented and glossy for the initial 2 hours and then settles down to a semi matte finish which makes it a subtle red shade.
After 2 hours, it looks more like a tinted lip balm with good pigmentation, basically the boldness goes away. After the initial 2 hours, it loses its bright red touch. In all it stayed on my lips for 4-5 hours with light snacking and water sips. So all in all, I found the formula to be really great and I am totally enjoying using it.

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Lakme Absolute Berry Crush Gloss Addict Lipstick?
Yes, definitely. Red lipsticks that go well with your skin tone are hard to find, and I think I have got one which works amazing for mine. So, I would get it again too. Totally recommended if you love wearing red!
This is one of the best lipsticks I have used so far. This red has pink undertones, so it wouldn’t look very bold like the ones with orange undertones.
