Today I am gonna review one of my Favourite Orange Shade from LAKME ABSOLUTE SCULPT MATTE Series.
The name of the shade is “LAKME ABSOLUTE SCULPT MATTE TANGERINE LUSH”
Lipstick Category: MATTE
What Lakme claims:
A long wear matte lipstick that gives you Hi-Definition and intense color in one stroke.
The shade is “LAKME ABSOLUTE SCULPT MATTE –TANGERINE LUSH“.
Well talking bout the shade, this is a gorgeous (MUST HAVE ) pure Orange shade with red undertones to it.It has no shimmer to it.It pure Matte shade .This is perrrrfect Summer Shade for orange and red shade lovers.Best part is it isn’t neon so can be worn easily be it day or night.It instantly brightens up the face .
3.7 gms for 750 INR
The outer carton is black cardboard box with all details on it.The lipstick comes in a retractable tube is a gunmetal grey tube with a reflective finish covered in a transparent case and a cap. This helps in easy see through of the shade .
The size is very easy to carry and travel friendly.Due to sturdy packing one is assured that it will not open in bag.I really liked the packaging of this series.
Pigmentation and Texture:
This shade is super pigmented .One swipe is enough for beautiful shade .It feels so soft and luxurious on lips .Unlike other pigmented lipsticks they do not bleed .It does not dry up lips hence people looking for non-drying matte lipstick must definitely give this series a try.
The Best part of these shades is there is no tugging or pulling of lips during application on lips.Lips do not feel heavy at all, you wont feel that there is something applied on lips.They are moisturizing and not at all drying hence do not need any lip balm application underneath .
However lips need to be exfoliated nicely before applying this shade.
Staying power :
The staying power of these lipsticks is amazingly around 5 hours especially during summers.They are in true sense long lasting lipsticks.However need touch ups post drink and food breaks.It starts wearing off from center of the lips but sometimes its comes off in flakes too .Once it settles down to matte it does not transfers .
After fading it leaves a pretty coral tint on lips. It can be easily removed using make-up remover or my all time favorite coconut oil.:).
This shade has a very mild vanilla fragrance which goes off in few seconds post application and is not at all bothersome.
Directions to use. (As mentioned by Lakme)
Step 1: Pull out the cap.
Step 2: Start applying from the center of your upper lip.
Step 3: Work from the center towards the outer edges of your lip, following the contours of your mouth.
This shade is easily available on all Lakme stores.
However you can easily find it on http://www.amazon.com and http://www.nykaa.com or http://www.purplle.com.
Honestly this Absolute Range from Lakme has changed my perception about them.The quality is simply outstanding and worth every penny you pay it.
Since I love Red and Orange shades lipsticks this shade had been in my top favorite list .
If you looking for a beautiful orange shade to wear in office or outing go for it .People who have never tried matte lipsticks should definitely give this series a try .Its such a gorgeous shade that it suits any and everyone .Especially its a boon for Indian Skin Tone. Since this shade does not bleeds its very easy to apply without any lip liner .
I have been trying to find other alternative brand for same shade but nopes this is ONE of ITS KIND Shade , truly I am in Love with this shade.
Some may find this series bit pricey but its worth for the quality it offers.
The only downside I felt was there is no ingredients mentioned on the packaging.
And yes would definitely repurchase it .This deserves a big big thumbs up from me.
