My Take on Lakmé Absolute Pink Me Up Sculpt Studio Hi-Definition Matte Lipstick :
Sculpt matte lipsticks come in beautiful, sleek transparent packaging. When you twist it, the lipstick (the bullet) comes out with a click, which is something I haven’t seen in a lipstick before. So even if the lid comes out, your lipstick won’t move until you twist it with some pressure, which is great if you want to carry it in your big handbag along with everything else. The shade name is mentioned on the bottom along with the packaged and use-before month/year, again something really useful.
The shade Pink Me Up is the most beautiful pink I have ever worn on my lips. Seriously, since I bought it online (this was a pre-launch order; it’s not available in stores here yet), I was a bit apprehensive about the shade as I have too many pinks now. I was thinking that the shade would be something that I already have, and if not the same, then may be a bit darker or lighter. But this was a stunning surprise! This is a pink with red undertones. It instantly brightens up the face. In the swatches, it hasn’t been captured correctly (damn my photography skills!). I mean it is a much darker and brighter shade. The pigmentation is awesome too; just one swipe and you’re done.
The texture is amazingly soft matte. Not only does it feel beautiful while applying but it also looks beautiful. Your lips look so healthy, almost petal soft. And there is no tugging or dragging; the lipstick just glides and sets to a powdery finish which is not drying at all. The last time I was this impressed with a matte lipstick was when I used L’Oreal Moist Matte. If I compare, this is a tad softer texture-wise than that, but then again I would suggest prepping your lips before applying the color as it might cling to the dry patches.
The wear time is 4-5 hours, which is fine for me. It survives a full meal, but a touch-up is required (as you have those lip liner-kind outlined lips, something I experience with all matte finishes and don’t like). But at this price, I think it works fine. I was actually thinking this would be priced around 800-900, considering how Lakmé increases the price with every new launch.
Overall, I think I have never been so happy with a new launch. Highly recommend this shade, and if not this, then some other from the range. It has reds, corals, pinks, all the bright shades and I am sure you’ll love to have one.
What I loved about Lakmé Absolute Pink Me Up Sculpt Studio Hi-Definition Matte Lipstick
- Great color pay-off.
- A very comfortable matte texture.
- Worth every penny.
- Lasts really long.
What I didn’t love much about Lakmé Absolute Pink Me Up Sculpt Studio Hi-Definition Matte Lipstick :
- Availability of all shades.
- The round shape of the lipstick makes application a little difficult; I have to be extra careful at the corners, or I have to use a brush.
Would I purchase Lakmé Absolute Pink Me Up Sculpt Studio Hi-Definition Matte Lipstick again?
Hell yes! I want all the shades!
