I couldn’t resist but buy one of these cute and chubby pencils from the newly launched range. Initially, I was seeking for the magenta one, but that was out of stock, so I had to settle for this. Let us know more.
650 INR for 3.5g
Quick and easy application. Matte finish with excellent color pay off. Comfortable application. Retractable pencil that requires no sharpener. Vibrant matte shades.
My Experience with Lakme Absolute Raving Red Lip Tint Matte:
These are too cute to look at. The chubby pencils have a color coded body with a metallic cap that fits snugly. It is quite travel friendly, except for that the cap may come loose. The pencil comes in a black outer carton, which has the description and other details. The ingredient list is missing though :-/
Raving red is a tomato red colour that brightens up my face instantly. It looks brighter in person than in the photographs.
Texture and Pigmentation:
I’m not a sucker for matte, but I do love them occasionally. The texture is pretty rubbery and crayon like. It does tug here and there. It also highlights every fine line and dry parts of the lips without fail.
It feels light on lips without feeling waxy or heavy. It is also very drying and my lips tend to suffer, whenever I take this off at the end of the day. A lip balm underneath is a must or else it will lead to patchy finish.
Pigmentation is good, but I won’t say very good. Since this is a bright red, I’m not very concerned about it as it shows up well enough to brighten my fair skin tone. The intensity can be built easily too.
This stayed put for a good 5-6 hours, after which it started to fade from the corners. It does survive small meals, which is a pro. Even though it is matte, it tends to transfer somewhat, but very minimally. Thankfully, it does not smell or tastes like anything. I am pretty happy with the staying power, but the only thing is that it is super drying on lips, thanks to the formula.
