Hope you all are enjoying the chilly days.I dont like how we stuff the wardrobes with winter wear for a few months and then it is back to summers, my mom and I are shivering with cold here in Cal.Today I have another pick from Lakme, in a neon pink shade, which is a lip gloss from the stylist range, find out how I like it.
Price:– INR 700 for 5 ml.
My experience with Lakme Absolute Gloss Stylist- Neon Pink
Packaging:- The packaging is different from other glosses. It comes in a see-through case. The size of the gloss bottle is smaller and rectangular in shape with a shiny black cap, which is very trendy. The applicator wand is also good, it picks up the right amount of gloss from both sides of the wand and it is enough for a single swipe of full color. The gloss is flat sponge applicator which is flat.
Colour, Pigmentation& Texture:- The colour of the gloss is a cool toned dark fuchsia pink colour with loads of silver shimmers which are barely visible but adds an extra sheen to the gloss. I agree it has a bit of neonish undertones to it, and this shade will suit very fair to medium skin tones very well. These amazing babies are highly pigmentated. I love the way they are so pigmented and glossy in texture. These shade is very pigmented and just needs two swipes for a perfect opaque coverage for highly pigmented lips. Don’t worry, those who don’t like shimmers in lip colors, the ones in this gloss are really not overpowering and are barely visible. The texture is very creamy & glossy. The consistency of these glosses are neither too thick nor thin. Well they are super creamy but at the same time dont feel heavy on lips. The creamy texture keeps my lips moisturised throughout. Well this gloss bleeds a bit if applied in many layers, so do keep a check on that.
Staying Power:- The gloss stayed on me for a couple of hours. I don’t know why these glosses have the tendency of fading the bright neonish colour within the first hour of application. It’s easily noticeable atleast I keep noticing it every hour. But it’s good as the neonish undertone also fades away and the colour looks more pleasing and not so bright.

Recommendation/ Re-purchase:- Yes, I will surely suggest these glosses to everyone, whoever likes bright and cool pinks & oranges. These glosses come in bright & funky shades which can cheer up the mood. I am not a gloss person, it’s not that I don’t like them or have very few, but I am sure my gloss color will fade very quickly. I will soon try the other shades also. Bye…. Love you all.
