Skin Tone: Medium Tanned
Lakme has recently launched their “Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color” with 8 beautiful shades. Finally, here are some beautiful drugstore lipsticks in India. In this post, I am going to review the shade “Peach Rose” in this post.
Lakme Absolute presents Matte Melt Liquid Lip – the first ever Matte liquid lip formulation. It has 8 irresistible shades ranging from a Bright bold red to an Intense Nude. The shades are Crazy Tangerine, Firestarter Red, Vintage Pink, Mulberry Feast, Red Smoke, Wine n Dine, Mild Mauve & Peach Rose. This matte lipstick will make your lips look lush, matte and bold. It has a velvety matte finish that delivers a lush, suede-like finish. It is long wear; in vivid colors that last through the day. These lipsticks have a new lightweight formula that feels feather light on your lips and has an intense, deep and rich color pay off in a single stroke. It has the ultimate lightweight formula enwraps lips for a long lasting silky comfort without drying your lips. It is completely transfer proof and stays all day. The wand is specially designed to give your lips an even color that can define the lips properly.
My Experience with Lakme Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color Peach Rose:
Packaging: Like other products from “Absolute” range, the lipstick comes in a normal black paper box and the actual lip product comes in a lovely clear tube with a black cap. I really like this sleek packaging. It has a nice applicator wand that works nice to define my lips but due to its small tips, I have to dip it again and again to pick up the product.
Shade: The shade “Peach Rose” is a beautiful, light warm peach shade that looks so pretty on lips, but it’s only for fair to medium skin tones as the shade will wash out dusky beauties. It looks just like a n*de peach on my medium complexion and I love the way how it looks on me. I always love such nude shades and it’s a perfect summer shade too.
This liquid lip color is decently pigmented, but two to three swipes are needed to achieve good color payoff on the lips. Though it can hide lip pigmentation with layers, but still the pigmentation could have been better like other liquid lipsticks. Actually, the applicator wipes off the color when you apply the second layer, but there should be a little gap between the layers. Otherwise, it works pretty nice.
Texture and Quality: This is a great formula with a full velvety matte finish. It has a medium-thin, mousse-like soft texture that glides smoothly on the lips without any tug. It never looks patchy or feels sticky. It takes a bit time to dry out completely. On the same point, it is actually good and I can easily layer it up and can fix any mistake as well. Once it sets to a beautiful velvety matte finish, it doesn’t transfer or smudge. I love its comfortable matte texture that gives me a very classy look. It performs so well, and most importantly, it provides a good amount of hydration to the lips. If you don’t like drying liquid lipsticks, then you can give this Lakme lip color a try. It feels soft, very lightweight, and comfortable too on the lips. I love this formula which is great for dry lips. It also carries a nice vanilla fragrance too. Also, the formula is pretty lightweight.
Staying Power: This lipstick lasts around 5-6 hours with normal coffee or snacks, but it doesn’t survive a heavy meal. Actually, food breaks the formula and then it slightly transfers, even on to cups. But with normal snacks, it doesn’t look faded. It starts to look faded from the centre after having an oily meal and then I need to reapply. Therefore, I can’t call it a super long-lasting lipstick, but a definitely a good liquid lipstick. Hence the reapplication is quite easy as well. It never feels patchy with the layers.
Also, it can be easily removed with a makeup wipe. Overall, the quality is definitely good and never makes lips dry. Since I prefer long-lasting lip products, I wish it had a better staying power. Otherwise, it’s a lovely liquid lipstick range to try and I am so happy with the shade range too.
