In my previous post (mentioning the Link below) I shared a look using Lakme Absolute’s newly launched Illuminating collection. As far as I can remember this is the first time Lakme has launched an eyeshadow Palette, they do have quads but not Palettes. During this Lakme Fashion Week, Lakme Absolute has launched this thoughtful range which I am sure many will Love.

New Launch- Lakme Absolute Illuminate Collection- Swatches

I am going to review Lakme Absolute Illuminate Eyeshadow Palette GOLD today. All the shades in this Palette are very subtle and suitable for Indian Skin tones. They do have hint of little shimmer particles which are hardly noticeable once you apply them on Lids. The texture is soft and very easy to apply however you need to layer them many times so as to show the color on lids properly. I am disappointed with the pigmentation aspect, other than that it is a very decent eyeshadow palette. There is less to no fallout and beginners will find this palette very user friendly. Moreover all the colors are gorgeous and perfect for day time as well as evening functions.

Regarding the Longevity aspect, I had a wear time of 6-7 hours with primer underneath. I have oily eyelids so Primer is must for me. The longevity may be less without a primer, however I have not tried this Palette without a Primer.

Rating: 3.5/5. Wish colors were more pigmented.

In Pics below I have used Shade 1 and Shade2. Shade2 is used in Outer Corners.

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.

Pros:

  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.

Cons:

  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

Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte Lip Tint- Magenta Magic, Raving Red: Review and Swatches

Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte Lip Tint- Magenta Magic, Raving Red: Review and Swatches

MRP: Rs. 650 (Oh, it is such a relief to have a good matte range at such an affordable price)

Today I am going to review two shades from Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte Lip Tint Range. At the starting of last week I just picked Magenta Magic and it impressed me so much that I had to have one more shade from this range. So I picked a very beautiful warm red shade called Raving Red.

You can buy this range online at Nykaa, Jabong and Flipkart.

Lakme Absolute Lip Tint Matte Review:

Packaging: As I said in my preview post, the twist up Crayon packaging is same as that of Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm( Revlon Colorburst Matte balm SultryRevlon Colorburst Matte balm Striking) the only difference is that these crayons have silver cap. I found packaging very colorful and funky, totally loved it. Twist up Crayons are so easy to use and maintenance free, no need of sharpener and all.

Color:
Magenta Magic: Lakme Absolute Magenta Magic Lip tint Matte is a very beautiful Magenta shade.

Raving Red: Lakme Absolute Raving Red Lip tint Matte is a warm muted red, I fell in love with this color instantly. This will go very well with the ladies who do not prefer very Bold Reds.

Texture/Formula: The texture is dry so don’t forget to moisturise your lips before application. Like all matte lipsticks these shades also highlights dry and flaky lips.

Pigmentation:
Magenta Magic: Lakme Absolute Magenta Magic Lip tint Matte is nicely pigmented, you need 2 swipes to cover the lips fully. Color intensity can be controlled, which is a good thing for the beauties who don’t like to wear dark colors.

Raving Red: Lakme Absolute Raving Red Lip tint Matte has average color payoff, you need multiple swipes to build the color.

Longevity: Both the shades have long wear time of 7-8 hours (I had meals and snacks in between). I wore both of the shades to office and by the end of the day they were intact with small fading around the corner of the lips.

Staining: Nah!! they do not stain the lips at all.

Rating: 4.5/5

My Verdict: Lakme has nailed it <3 This Matte Range has beautiful, wearable colors. Yes, they are dry but that can be stored out by applying a good lip balm underneath. Do try atleast one shade from this Matte Range. My personal favorite is Magenta Magic.
