Lakme Absolute Matte Lipstick 221 Orange Sunset
This summer my vanity is literally overflowing with orange and coral lip colors. Yes, I mean it. I have outdone my addiction and now m rethinking of going on a lipstick BAN phase. 🙁
JUST KIDDING! That can never happen. 😛
Anyways coming to my post, I just got yet another orange matte lipstick from Lakme which was an instant crush when I saw the baby in Ritikaâ€™s earlier swatch post. And am talking about none other than the Lakme Absolute Matte Lipcolor in the shade 221 Orange Sunset.

My take on Lakme Absolute Matte Lip Color 221 Orange Sunset:
This lipstick comes packed in a metallic grey lipstick tube with the logo printed on it. The packaging is not fancy as the Sculpt Studio or the Creaseless range but is quite sturdy and travel friendly. A sticker is placed at the bottom with the shade name on it.
Color: Coming to the color, 221 Sunset orange is true to its name. A true sunset orange in shade, which I really like. It does instantly brighten up my face and also would compliment a lot of Indian beauties out there because of the warm undertone.
Texture: Ok. Lakme claims that it makes lip soft and smooth. Yes, it did when I applied one coat. It was breezy and light and didnâ€™t tug. But it got heavy and chalky after multiple swipes. 🙁 I had to apply a lip balm underneath for a complete opaque look, which couldnâ€™t be achieved in one single swipe.
Pigmentation: Semi sheer in a single swipe. Need multiple coats for full coverage. If you have dry lips, I would recommend a lip balm 5 minutes prior to application.
Staying power: Since it is matte in finish, it lasted for 4 to 5 hours on me without snacking.
What I like about Lakme Absolute Matte Lip Color 221 Orange Sunset:
- True orange in shade
- Buildable color
- Smooth during application
- Would flatter a lot of Indian skin tones
- Brightens up the face
- Travel friendly
What I donâ€™t like about Lakme Absolute Matte Lip Color 221 Orange Sunset:
- Feels chalky after multiple swipes
Rating: 4/5 (minus one for the heaviness)
