My Experience with Lakme Absolute Red Rush Sculpt Studio Hi-Definition Matte Lipstick:

Packaging: The lipstick has the exact packaging as the earlier Absolute range lipsticks. It comes in a silver metallic cylinder housed in a transparent tube. The cap is transparent and hence, the color identification becomes easy. The cap opens and shuts with a twist and is not prone to opening automatically which makes it very travel friendly. The bullet comes out with a twist mechanism and that too with a click. Hence, one has to twist the lipstick or it won’t come out. This lock and twist system is very unique and new.

Red Rush is a sober red with dark undertones that makes it a very subtle, daily wear color. Since it is not very bright, a single swipe would suffice for day use. This one gives a very mature look. Also, this one looks more orangey in the pictures, but it really is not! Red Rush is a matte finish lipstick. But, when you apply this shade, it looks a little sheer initially and then settles to a complete matte finish.

It has a creamy texture, but if one uses it on dry and non-moisturized lips, it might pull the lips. Once applied on prepped up lips, this lipstick glides effortlessly. I basically have dry lips that start feeling dry when I use matte lipsticks like these. I would suggest to use a little lip balm before application and use a little afterwards as well.

Red rush would score an 8 on 10 for pigmentation. Not much difference in single and multiple swipes, but yes, the color can be built up to a darker shade. The staying power for me is around 4-5 hours after which it starts to fade away leaving behind a reddish tint on lips. It survives through small snacking, but would need touch up after a meal. Also, it transfers a little bit on to cutlery. It is in no way waterproof and can be easily wiped off with water if a single swipe was used. For multiples ones, there would be a stain left behind after using water and will require a makeup remover. Overall, I love this one.
