My Overall Thoughts About New Lakme Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color
Packaging: The liquid lip color comes in a transparent tube with a black applicator cap which has the doe-foot applicator attached to it! It gives a precised application without bleeding on the edges!
The body is transparent till the bottom so it is easier to recognize the shade from outside! The shade name is mentioned at the transparent base of the lipstick. It is travel friendly as well!
Pigmentation: These liquid lip colors are nicely pigmented though I applied it two times to get a deeper coverage! You can use it as a sheer lip color as well as per your liking!
Texture: It doesn’t settle into the fine lines. However it is a little sticky when applied on the lips and the sticky feeling doesn’t go away! The sticky part is something I don’t like at all! It starts to fade eventually!
Finish: The lip color has a matte finish on the lips which is great for all the matte lovers. The formulation is hydrating and it doesn’t dry the lips which is a really great thing as most matte lipsticks are too drying for the lips!
Staying Power: The staying power of these matte melt lipsticks is around 4-5 hours with light meals and it starts to fade gradually after this duration!
Here are the four shade from the latest range of liquid lip colors from Lakme. I will be sharing me detailed thought on each of these shades below!
The shade Red Smoke is mainly a cool toned ashy red color which looks beautiful on applying! It is not too bright and nor too dull and there is not orange hint to it!
The liquid lipstick has a very soft sheen which barely shows when applied on the lips. The shade is beautiful however I do not love the sticky texture of this lip color! Moreover, the sticky feeling doesn’t go away so easily!
This shade is one bright lip color in the range of eight lipsticks and is more suitable for the fairer skin tones!
The shade is a pure tangy orange shade which is bold and bright on the lips! It will look greta on fair & medium fair skin tones!
The shade Mulberry Feast is a beautiful mauve- pink shade with light hints of purple & wine to it! It looks beautiful once applied!
Wine N Dine
Probably one of the most unique lipstick shade different from the usual reds & pinks! This deep wine shade looks really on application. I really loved how it look on me!
Well, these liquid lipsticks are undoubtedly great in terms of packaging, shades, pigmentation and finish but somehow I didn’t really find the lipstick texture too great!
It is sticky on the lips which lingers on for quite sometime and eventually the color starts fading because of the sticky formulation! This sticky texture doesn’t feel good on the lips and it makes the color fade away gradually!
Well, this was all I had to say about these newly launched liquid lipsticks from Lakme! Do share which one is your favorite? Are you planning to get any of these?
