My Experience with Lakme Absolute Deep Caramel Sculpt Studio Hi-Definition Matte Lipstick:
The lipstick comes in a silver cardboard packaging. The lipstick tube is silver in color and has a clear cap with a brand’s tagline in white fonts. The tube has the shade name mentioned on the sticker at the base. The sticker at the base also bears the shelf life and other details as well. The cap of the lipstick fits tightly with a click and does not come off while carrying around. The lipstick comes with a twist and lock mechanism that makes the lipstick even more travel friendly, the bullet will not retract easily even if the cap slips off. So, it will not mess in your handbag. Overall, the packaging has zero flaws.
The shade “Deep Caramel” is a warm chocolate brown shade. The lipstick will suit almost all Indian skin tones nicely. This is a dark brown shade that will suit the mature ladies well. It does not look that much flattering on me. The finish it gives is not ultra matte. The lipstick sets to a semi-matte finish. The pigmentation is decent and easily buildable. It requires some 2-3 swipes to build up the color. The lipstick nicely hides the pigmentation of the lips.
The texture of the lipsticks from this range is really nice. It is soft and smooth. The lipstick glides effortlessly on the lips without any dragging. The formula is light and feels comfortable on the lips. It does not feel heavy or sticky at all. The formula is slightly creamy and it is slightly moisturizing. But, it makes my lips slightly dry after meals so I prefer to apply a lip balm underneath. The texture of the lipstick is on the creamier side and hence it does transfer a little. The lipstick smudges easily after a full meal. Prepping the lips is must before applying the lipstick as it easily clings to the dry parts of the lips and highlights them. It does settle into the fine lines of the lips after meals.
The staying power is great. It stays for 5 hours or so on my lips easily with a little sipping, which is pretty fine for me. But the color gets ripped off after a full meal and a cheap stain is left behind. So, it requires an instant reapplication after having a meal. A good makeup remover is required to take off the lipstick completely. Overall, these kinds of browns are great for mature ladies and definitely not for youngsters as it makes them look older.
