Hi Everyone! Today i’ll reviewing the brand new Argan Oil lip colour by Lakme Absolut launched during Lakme Fashion Week 2017! When a lipstick is infused with the power of Argan oil, I had to get my hands on it. I decided to try on the shade “Smooth Merlot” and bought it from www.nykaa.com.
I think Lakme as a brand has definitely revolutionised the Indian market and it’s great to see how they evolve each season to bring the best of cosmetics to the market.
Price: Rs.750/- (Slightly high)
• Packaging: The lipstick comes in a black cardboard package with a detailed description. The actual lipstick is in a shiny metallic gold tube which locks when you click to the close it. Kudos to the packaging, its classy and convenient
• Color: I was expecting it to be more on maroon side, but it has a strong brick shade which is also quite good
• Fragrance: A not-so-strong vanilla fragrance that lasts for quite sometime
Texture: Now, I have slightly dry lips so I have the habit of applying vaseline or lip balm before using any lipstick. However, for this I decided to skip the step and directly applied my smooth merlot.
•It has a smooth & creamy texture and leaves you with a glossy finish. It needs at least 2-3 coats of application so pigmentation is almost good enough. I wore it for a lunch event and it lasted me for 2 hours. It leaves a slight red stain, so I did apply another coat. But all this while, I never felt like my lips are becoming dry or chapped. Rather, it was moiturised throughout.
To sum up, Lakme Absolut Argan Oil Lip colour is a nourishing lipstick that lasts up to 2-3 hours. It does not make your lips patchy and it can be easily worn without lip balm/moisturisers. The price is slightly high, but if you are looking for a deep moisturising lipstick, then it’s a must try.
