My Experience with Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict in Berry Rose:
Packaging: The outer paper carton has the required details regarding the product. The cap is transparent plastic and might seem flimsy. But it is pretty tough and has survived after falling twice (clumsy me!). As Neha mentioned in her review the lipstick twists up and down with a click which enhances the secured locking of the tube. Overall a functional packaging but considering the hefty price tag it could have been better.
Texture: As you can see the quantity is mentioned in “ml” and not in grams, you can guess the gel like fluid texture of the lipstick. It glides on super smooth on the lips and is very much forgiving when it comes to chapped lips. It moisturizes pretty well and keeps the lips hydrated for a long time. Though layering it several times might make the lips feel heavy.
Shade: Of all the shades I picked I found this to be the best mix of pink and coral. I have to say this is one of the best shades in my stash. The right mix of pink and coral without being too flashy. The glossy texture enhances the polished feel to the lipstick. I am in love with this shade. The pigmentation is 6/10. You have to swipe 2-3 times to get the exact color on the tube. The positive side of the story is you can wear it sheer to the office or college if you feel like.
Staying power: On its own it stays for about 2.5 hours. With a nude lip liner beneath the staying power increase to 4-5 hours. Being glossy and creamy it transfers a lot to cups/mugs, but owing to the lovely texture of the lipstick you will not mind reapplying it.

Cons of Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict in Berry Rose:
