Lakme Absolute Sculpt Studio Matte Lipstick- Pink Caress: Review, Price, Swatches



Rs 700/- Buy here


This Lakme Absolute lipstick comes in a slim, cylindrical tube with a transparent plastic cap which allows you to easily locate the shade, incase you have more than one of these. The packaging is pretty compact, light-weight and sturdy enough to carry along in your purse. One little issue I’ve faced with this kind of packaging is that the round shape of the lipstick bullet makes it a tad bit inconvenient to apply it neatly around the edges. But once you get the hang of it, you’ll hardly notice any difference from the regular lipsticks.


Texture/Pigmentation: The texture of the lipstick is a smooth, creamy matte formula. When freshly applied, it has a very slight sheen to it but after a few minutes, it settles down into a completely matte finish. The formula of this lipstick is one of the best matte formulas I’ve tried in terms of comfort level. It does not tug on the lips and doesn’t make your lips super dry after a few hours of wearing it. Although as with all other matte lipsticks, it is best to apply a lip balm a few minutes before you apply this shade. The pigmentation is pretty amazing and the lipstick goes completely opaque in 1-2 swipes which makes it great for people with pigmented lips. The formula does not bleed and stays for around 4-5 hours on my lips with mild snacks and drinks in between.

Coming onto the shade, the lipstick is a yellow-toned medium pink. You know one of those lipsticks that tend to look a little different on different people. That’s the case with this shade. Except the difference is a lot! Not only on different people, it changes a lot depending upon what kind of lighting you are in. The pictures you see below is how this shade looks on me most of the time- a bright warm pink. But in certain yellow lightings and under bright sunlight, it looks a light pastel pink shade. But no matter what lighting you are under, this shade is bound to flatter a majority of complexions! However I’ll still suggest trying it out under store lighting and the natural lighting before purchasing it.

    You are looking like a doll!!!! I am not a matte lover but more of a cream matte lover (if that make any sense :D). This lippies texture seems of my liking. Gonna give it a try at the store first. The shade is really gorgeous
