It has been a little over a couple of months since Lakme launched their Matte Melt Lipstick collection. The collection consists of 8 shades and I bought all of them to try and review. I have reviewed 7 out of 8 shades in detail on my blog and today I’ll be reviewing the last shade from the collection. Today I will be sharing my thoughts about ‘Lakme Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color Mulberry Feast’
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 packaged their Matte Melt lip colors in a classy looking cylindrical bottle with a black colored cap. The bottle is transparent, making it easier to recognize the desired color from the bunch of other colors. It also makes it look beautiful when displayed on the vanity. Apart from the good-looking packaging, the bottle is sturdy too. I have accidentally dropped the bottle once and it still looks good. This makes it travel-friendly too.
My Experience with Lakme Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color Mulberry Feast:
The shade Mulberry Feast is a mauvy pink color which looks good on a number of skin tones. The shade is free from any kind of sparkles and it dries matte which makes it appropriate for daily use.
Matte Melt collection is Lakme’s take to the liquid lipstick market but the formula of this product is different from many other liquid lipsticks available in the market. The formula does not feel heavy on the lips nor does it makes the lips dry. So, this is a good option for ladies with dry lips. But unfortunately, the staying power of the lipstick is not as good as expected from a liquid lipstick.
This particular color is a slightly darker one which makes it stay for a little longer as compared to its lighter counterparts. But even then it does not stay for more than 4 hours. If a heavy meal is taken before 4 hours, the color fades from the inner sections giving the appearance of simply lined lips. Luckily the formula is easy to reapply without being patchy.
I won’t say that I am a fan of this color nor do I dislike it. It is not my favourite from the collection but it does look decently good on the lips. It is an everyday color and feels good on the lips. The price can be considered little on the higher side but it is comparable to many other products available in the market. So overall if you like shades that are a little bright yet subtle, this one is for you!
