This lipstick was my first purchase from the Lakme absolute matte range. I needed a shade that is wearable in office and this one seemed to fit the bill. I bought it along with the Absolute Beige shine lip-gloss.
Nourishing lip colour that brightens up your look while adding that extra zing to your entire getup, this one from Lakme is a must have. Lakme Absolute Matte is a fine range that lasts long and gives you the kind of smooth finish you would want from a lipstick.
Shade: Cocoa Pink 30
What it claims:
Discover the finish of a matte with unbelievable comfort. This rich color matte stick is enriched with Vitamin E and Wheat Germ Oil to keep lips silky soft and smooth.
Lakme Absolute Matte lipstick, luxurious rich colour enriched with Vitamin E and wheat germ oil for a non-drying creamy yet matte finish.
Quantity: 3.6 ml
Price: 395 (I got it for 370)
The lipstick comes in a grey metal casing. The packaging is good and looks elegant. I would not be comparing it with nine to five or the enrich ones; other reviewers have done that already :). It is a good matte lipstick with a nice texture; I like the texture and pigmentation. It is just how I wanted it to be.
My take on Lakme Absolute Matte Lipstick in 30 Cocoa Pink:
I love the lipstick. It is perfect for office wear for me. I love the colour, it is a pinkish brown shade and can be an MLBB for most of us. Though I can’t say it is very much pigmented, but in two or three swipes it goes completely opaque on my lips. It is very soft and not dry and hard as some matte lipsticks are. It is not very moisturizing, but maybe that’s why it stays on for a while on your lips. It does not settle into lines but might accentuate chapped lips. It doesn’t feel heavy on lips and lasts around minimum 4-5 hours on me, and then it fades slowly.
What I like about Lakme Absolute Matte Lipstick in 30 Cocoa Pink:
• I like the colour and the pigmentation.
• It goes opaque on lips, but does not feel heavy.
• No lip balm required underneath for me, so no reduction in pigmentation (can’t say about winters :().
• The creamy matte finish looks lovely and natural.
• The casing looks classy.
• No strong smell or taste.
• Doesn’t bleed or transfer easily.
• The shade is great for office wear, will be an MLBB shade for most of us.
What I don’t like about Lakme Absolute Matte Lipstick in 30 Cocoa Pink:
• Not very moisturizing(might be a con for some)
• Not heavily pigmented
• Does not live upto their 8 hour claim
• Might not last long.
No more cons…I like this lipstick and would recommend
I would rate it: 4.5/5
