My Take on Lakme Absolute Cinnamon Charm Sculpt Studio Hi-Definition Matte Lipstick:
Let’s begin with the packaging of the lipstick. The lipstick comes in the regular Lakme Absolute packaging. The lipstick tube comes housed in a silver coloured outer packaging. This outer carton has some product details and shade name mentioned on it, but there is no ingredients list mentioned on it like other Lakmé products. Inside, this carton comes a transparent lipstick tube, which is silver from inside. The tube has a clear cap with brand’s tagline mentioned on it. The clear cap helps to pick the shade from my vanity during rush hours. The lipstick tube has the shade name mentioned on its base. Overall, the packaging is travel friendly.
The shade “Cinnamon Charm” is a gorgeous brown shade with red undertones. This is such a warm brown shade. The shade is beautiful and would suit mature ladies better. The lipstick is free from any shimmer or glitter. It sets to a nice matte finish. The shade will flatter almost every Indian skin tone. The pigmentation of the lipstick is good. One swipe of the lipstick gives a nice semi-opaque coverage. I need to apply two swipes to build up the colour properly and get a perfect even finish. It nicely hides pigmentation of the lips. The lipstick has the same faint flowery kind of fragrance, typical of all Lakme lipsticks.
The texture of the lipstick is extremely smooth and creamy. It glides effortlessly on the lips without any tug or pull. The lipstick does cling to the dry parts of the lips. Hence, prepping the lips prior to application is necessary, but it happens with almost all matte lip colors. The lipstick is slightly creamy and its creamy consistency leads the lipstick to transfer, but still, I would say it transfers less compared to Lakme lip shimmer lipsticks. It does smudges a little, so I always prefer to apply a lip liner underneath to prevent my lipstick from bleeding and keep my lipstick in place. I can see the lipstick bleeding from the outer corners of my lipstick after a full meal. It does not settle into the fine lines of the lips. The lipstick comes with a moisturizing formula, but that kind of a moisturization is not enough for very dry lips. It is not hydrating and my lips feel dry after 2-3 hours of application. The lipstick is lightweight and feels comfortable on the lips.
The lipstick lasts for 5-6 hours on my lips with light meals, but it wipes off from the inner corner of the lips after a full meal. It fades away evenly leaving a stain behind, which does not look cheap at all. Removing the lipstick is pretty easy. It wipes off easily even with a wet wipe. Overall, I am impressed with the product quality.
