Lakme Absolute Plump & Shine Upto 6hr 3D Gloss – Coral Shine Review & Swatches
Much already said and written about the new Lakme Absolute range of cosmetics. I already got a lipstick from this range and getting more than satisfactory results, I bought this lip gloss too. Two shades, Candy Shine and Beige Shine have already been reviewed on IMBB and I am reviewing the shade Coral Shine for you all.
With the increasing craze for plump and pouty lips, Lakme Absolute Plump & Shine is set to create a rave. This revolutionary 3D lip gloss formula contains Marine Collagen and high shine pigments which keep lips plump and hydrated. With its high pigmentation properties, you are sure to make your lover fall weak on his knees.
My Say on Lakme Absolute Plump & Shine Upto 6hr 3D Gloss – Coral Shine:
Well, buying this particular shade was just because I own around 3-4 coral lipsticks and not a single gloss and so I thought of giving this shade a try. I am more of a lipstick person but I am rather collecting lip glosses these days and already bought 4-5 shades from different brands. Now, comparing this from the other lip glosses I own, I am sort of disappointed with this one.
Firstly, the shade is too sheer for my liking and even for justifying the name coral. It is more of a sheer peach kind of a shade with a minute 5% coral in it. Using it alone, just adds a hint of shimmer and shine on the lips than a hint of color which I dislike.
Then, the consistency is thicker than a normal lip gloss which makes it more difficult to use it on top of another lipstick. I find it a little heavy because of this thick texture and a bit sticky too. The 6-hour claim is all false. It stays on for a mere 3 hours on me and fades away after a full meal very easily. I strongly feel that it is just an overpriced lip gloss for the shade and texture it offers and for the weak lasting power it provides.
Even the packaging is quite ordinary. The wand is small and the color it picks up is so less that one cannot apply it fully even once on the entire lips. The color also just stays on the tip of the wand and not on the whole sponge applicator provided which makes it difficult to apply and spread the shade properly on the entire lips.
So for me, this is rather an unsatisfactory purchase from this new range of Lakme Absolute. I am unhappy with the shade the most. I like pigmented glosses and for me Revlon Colorburst is a clear winner there. For more sheer glosses, I can go on with my NYX round lip glosses that are much cheaper and have a great shade selection that offers sheer to pigmented glosses.
Summing up the pros and cons for you:
Pros of Lakme Absolute Plump & Shine Upto 6hr 3D Gloss – Coral Shine:
- Lips feel and remain hydrated after applying the gloss.
- Has a thick texture which makes it lasts longer than normal lip glosses.
- Easily available.
- Gives quite a natural shine with a hint of color and shimmer to the lips for a daily wear.
- Would give a nice effect on top of other lipsticks.
Cons of Lakme Absolute Plump & Shine Upto 6hr 3D Gloss – Coral Shine:
- The “6-hour” claim is not met by this lip gloss.
- I find it a little thick and heavy on the lips.
- It gives a kind of sticky feel to the lips.
- The shade is a major letdown for me.
- It is too sheer and actually looks more like a colorless lip gloss itself.
- Does not survive full meals.
- The wand applicator picks up such less color and makes it a real pain to apply the gloss.
- I find it a little overpriced for the quality it delivers.
Do I Recommend/Will I Repurchase Lakme Absolute Plump & Shine Upto 6hr 3D Gloss – Coral Shine?
A “no” for me. As I have already said, I prefer more pigmented and lightweight lip glosses, so I think I would go for my more trusted Revlon and NYX in that case. I do not recommend this shade but I think the other shades reviewed are better pigmented and so you can go for those. Now, comes my snaps wearing this lip gloss in different lights for you to better understand the shade being reviewed.
