A few days back, I posted swatches of the full collection of new Lakme Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Colors. The collection consists of 8 colors and is Lakme’s addition to the liquid lipstick world. Today I will be sharing my experience with the shade Crazy Tangerine which is the first shade of the collection.
Price: Rs 750 for 6 ml of product (BUY HERE)
Available in 8 vivid shades that stunningly complement Indian skin tones, the all-new Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color is has a velvet matte texture and delivers a lush, suede-like finish. The formula is weightless and feels feather-light on your lips with an intense color payoff. Longwear by nature, it also lasts through the day.
Lakme Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lipsticks are packed in a very common looking packaging. It comes in a cylindrical transparent tube with a black screw on lid with the applicator being attached to the lid. Lakme does not seem to experiment with its colors or its packaging. But thankfully, the packaging is sturdy and is safe to travel with.
My Experience with Lakme Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color Crazy Tangerine:
As the collection consists of only 8 shades, the shades are not very unique. The shade Crazy Tangerine is the Orange of the collection but is a wearable shade of orange. The shade reminds me of Blue Heaven Non-Transfer lip color in Sunset Orange. The formulation of both the lip products are slightly different and in fact, the shade sunset orange is slightly darker, but both the colors look pretty similar, sunset orange being less than half the price of Crazy Tangerine.
Pigmentation of Crazy Tangerine is decent. As it is not one of the bright orange shades, it is easy to pull off. If you are someone who wants to try orange lip but find it difficult to wear, then this is the color for you.
The color is transfer proof and dries completely matte. But the staying power is just average. It is not one of the products that can stay up to long 8 hours or can tolerate big meals. It does pull off a small snack but a full meal makes the color fades from the inner sections of the lips.
The formulation does not feel dry and it does not settle into the fine lines. The formula is actually pretty easy to reapply as well.
I won’t say that I loved the shade Crazy Tangerine, but it is definitely one of the easier shades of orange. The formula of the product is decently good but it is not my favorite. I won’t repurchase this color again.
