Hi lovely ladies!!!
Lakmé Absolute Sculpt Studio Hi-Definition Matte Lipsticks are one of the best matte lipsticks at present. I was so elated after seeing Tangerine Lush and Peach Pout that as soon as I saw the name of this lipstick – Coral Flare, I picked it up immediately without even having the patience to swatch it. But only after I got back home, I realized that this is in no way a coral shade, which was quite disappointing. But after trying it on, I did realize that even though it is not a coral lipstick, it nevertheless did look good.
So today, I will be reviewing Lakmé Absolute Sculpt Studio Hi-Definition Matte Lipstick in the shade Coral Flare.
Price: Rs.700 for 3.7gm.
Ingredients: Not mentioned.

My take on Lakme Absolute Coral Flare Sculpt Studio Hi-Definition Matte Lipstick:
Lakme Absolute Sculpt Studio Hi- Definition Matte Lipstick comes in an outer grey cardboard packaging that holds the details pertaining to the product but no information regarding the ingredients is mentioned on it. The outer carton opens to reveal the gorgeous lipstick inside that comes in a gunmetal grey tube with a reflective finish covered in a transparent casing and a transparent cap. I like it that you can see the lipstick shade through the cap, which makes it easy to spot the lip color you want to pick out from your makeup stash, in case you have more than one lipstick from the range. The cap snaps on snugly, making it travel-friendly. The shade name and expiry date is mentioned on the bottom sticker on the lipstick which is a plus point as you need not keep the outer box to check the expiry date of the product. The overall packaging is similar to the Gloss Addict range except for the fact that the name ‘matte’ is mentioned on the body of the lipstick tube instead of ‘gloss’. I wish they should have changed the packaging and made some difference from the gloss addict range so that it wouldn’t lead to confusion while picking up the lipstick.
Coral Flare as the name suggests is nowhere a coral lipstick. Instead, it is a bright orangey red lipcolor with absolutely no shimmer or sheen. Although the name is quite misleading, it sure is a pretty color that will brighten up your face the instant you have it on your lips. You can skip any other makeup when you apply this shade of lipstick, as this color alone can make you look nice and fresh.
The texture feels extremely luxurious on the lips. I’m a matte lipstick lover but totally despise the tugging and pulling of most of the matte lipsticks, and I’m glad that there is no pulling or tugging experienced with this lipstick. The texture of this lip colour is to die for- soft matte kind, that is really smooth and soft on application. It is soft, but not the creamy-soft kind that crumbles easily. It is a non-drying matte lipstick. If you hate matte lipsticks, then you should definitely try out a lipstick from this range as it might change your perspective regarding matte lipsticks. This matte lipstick doesn’t dry out your lips or look tacky by the end of the day.
The lipcolour is amazingly pigmented and one swipe gives true colour to the lips covering the lip pigmentation totally. Although it doesn’t cling to the dry parts of the lips a lot, exfoliating and prepping the lips prior to applying the lipcolor enhances its buttery finish. Once you apply the lipcolor it just sets to a complete matte finish the does not budge, but does tend to transfer a little on eating and drinking. Compared to Tangerine Lush and Peach Pout, this color transfers a little less.
Even after layering the lipstick with multiple swipes, it feels really light on the lips, like as though you have nothing on your lips. The staying power of the lipstick is really good. It lasts for a good 6-7 hours on the lips with gradual and even fading. The color stains the lips beautifully that lasts even longer. The lipstick does fade after meals, but the stain still leaves some color alive on the lips.This lipstick has a mild vanilla fragrance to it, which fades away within a minute of application which doesn’t bother much.One piece of advice, before you buy this range of lipsticks, do check out the shade in the store before buying the lipstick, as the names of a few shades are quite misleading.

The color sure is nice but has a misleading name to it. If you love bright lipsticks then you should definitely try this shade, I’m sure you will love it!!!
