I will be very honest. As much as I love fashion and the glitz and glamour of Lakme Fashion Week, I am actually more interested in something else. And it obviously has to do with makeup. I eagerly wait to see what new collection Lakme comes out with during this time. Last year, it was a collaboration with Sabyasachi for the Illuminate Range and this year, the focus is on Liquid Gold or argan oil. The new Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color range is now out and available in 15 vibrant shades. The collection is available on Nykaa and priced at Rs 750 each. I have the shade Pink Satin.
About Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color
The power of traditional argan oil, now in your favourite lipstick. Say hello to argan oil infused lip colors, the all new invention by Lakmé. These lipsticks nourish your lips while delivering intense color. The best of both worlds is now a reality with its nourishing power as well as rich pigments. It has a beautiful creamy texture that gives your lips a smooth and silky finish. Available in 15 vibrant shades that complement all Indian skin tones, Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color is where the power of argan oil comes to life!
Argan oil as a base makes for a wonderful lip treatment – almost like a replacement for chap sticks/lip balms. They can heal cracked lips and also keep them soft, smooth and conditioned. The use of this argan oil based lipstick during the cold seasons is perfect to prevent rough and dry lips.
Argan oil is not called ‘Liquid Gold’ for nothing. It is extremely rich in beneficial nutrients including fatty acids and vitamin E and therefore, excellent for the hair and skin. Does it work when added to a lipstick? It does!
I love the shiny gold metallic packaging of this range. Since I am a matte lipstick lover , I was kinda skeptical at first. Glossy lips are not my style but I decided to try one out anyway. Pink Satin is a beautiful warm toned bright pink that is not too ‘in your face’. It is a shade that will go with any complexion and can be worn at any time of the day. Pigmentation is really good and couple of swipes will give even, opaque coverage.
I am loving the texture and finish! The lipstick is very creamy and applies like a dream. The finish is not too glossy. It gives a nice shine to the lips that makes the face appear brighter, more awake and youthful. Even the lips look fuller. Creamy lipsticks don’t last as long as the matte ones and this stays for about 4 hours if you are not eating or drinking too much. The shine goes away after a couple of hours though but the good thing is that the lips continue to stay moisturized. People who shy away from mattes because of the dryness factor, you will love this range.
I am enjoying using this lipstick and I think this range is a welcome break from all the mattes that we have been seeing for nearly a year now. I am also glad that Lakme kept the price reasonable. I might get a few more shades soon 🙂
