Don’t you feel elated when you find a product from a very popular range which has not yet been reviewed on IMBB? I was looking for a brown lip liner for quite some time which would work as a n*de colour for my lips. I found this one from the Lakme Absolute range and was amazed to find out that it has not yet been covered on IMBB. So, I got this from the store and now I am ready to review it here. Read to know all about it.
This colour intense lip liner ensures perfect definition to your lips. It’s long lasting by nature, glides on smoothly and the ease of application makes for lush and distinctive lips. Say goodbye to colour bleeds now that there’s Lakmé Absolute Forever Silk Lip Liner… For lips that spell perfection!
My Experience with Lakme Absolute Forever Silk Lip Liner Espresso:
Packaging: The black, plastic pencil comes in a twist-up mechanism with a brown colour-coded band in the end of the cap. The cap snaps tightly which makes it very travel friendly.
Texture: The texture is smooth and creamy. It glides easily without any tugging or pulling. It is neither drying nor moisturizing. It is better to use it after applying some lip balm.
Color: The colour is a deep, blackish-brown shade. It is a good brown colour for everyone and for those with dark lips, it is definitely a must have. I use it as a n*de shade often while using brown lipsticks and it pairs along well with multiple shades.
Texture and Quality: As I have mentioned earlier, this has all the good qualities that a good lip liner must possess. It glides smoothly and helps in achieving a defined lip line. It gives perfect coverage to the lips without creating any cakey effect. It is neither glossy, nor shimmery and all lipsticks go perfectly with it. As it is retractable, there is not much product wastage. Also, if you twist up a little pencil at a time, it does not break either.
Staying Power: Without any bleeding or fading, the product stays on the lips for a good 5-6 hours. Also, when used along with a lipstick, you get good staying power out of it.
Overall, if you are a perfectionist when it comes to lipstick application, this is a must-have shade in your stash.
