I am obsessed with Lakme Absolute Illuminating Lip Shimmer Ruby Glimmer, it is perfect for Parties, Festivities and Weddings. My regular readers might know that I am a HUGE MATTE LIPSTICK LOVER, however I am really finding myself inclined towards this beautiful Lip Shimmer and am definitely going to try other shades from this range.

First thing first, these Lip Shimmers come in very Sleek and Sophisticated black packaging, full marks to Lakme for that. Lakme has taken a huge risk in bringing back the 90s Era where Chunky and Shimmery Lip colors were very Popular, so this Range might not be everyone’s cup of Tea. Even when I bought Ruby Glimmer I was very sceptical. However when I tried it, all my hesitations were put to rest. I know …I know I am raving about this lipstick.. its better that I won’t take much of your time and quickly sum up the Pros and Cons for you.


  1. Sleek and Sophisticated Packaging.
  2. Perfect color for Parties, Weddings.
  3. Pinkish Red color gives beautiful glow to the face.
  4. Smooth and Creamy Texture.
  5. Very Pigmented.
  6. Subtle shimmer, not at all Chunky.
  7. Long Wearing- I had a wear time of 6-7 hours.
  8. It does not make the lips dry.


  1. People with sensitive nose may found the scent bothersome.
  2. Concept of Shimmery Illuminating particles in the Lipstick may not go well with everyone.
  3. Not for Matte Lovers.

Rating: 4.5/5
