The formula of the Matte Masaba Lips is exactly the same as the regular Lakme Absolute Lip Pouts. They can be a bit tough to apply the first time and there is definitely some pulling and tugging. Pigmentation is decent but not the same for all the shades. You need to swipe a few times to get full coverage. What I love most about the Lip Pouts is the fact that these stay on for hours even if you eat and drink. Can make the lips dry after sometime though.

I have five shades from the Masaba Lips collection:
Cherry Bite – Beautiful cherry red and is my favorite. The color brightens up the face immediately, the texture is creamier, applies easily and is very well pigmented
Role-A-Cola – I expected this to be a dark brown but it is actually a grape/black currant.
Orange Candy – Very wearable orange color but applies unevenly
Bubble Pink – Great bubble gum pink shade for those with lighter complexions. It looks pale on me and also applies unevenly
Caramel Toffee – Daily wear warm caramel shade.
I have not tried the remaining five shades from the collection so can’t comment on them. What I can say is that while the shades and the packaging is excellent, there is a lot of inconsistency in terms of texture and pigmentation. If you love bright colors and want to get one shade only, definitely go for Cherry Bite. It is beautiful.
