Today’s review would be about ‘Lakme Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color Vintage Pink’, one of the new launches from Lakme. The complete collection comes with 8 color options all of which have been swatched on the blog.
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.
Like many other Lakme lipsticks these lipsticks too come in a black colored outer cardboard box. The actual product is packaged inside a transparent, sturdy looking cylindrical tube with a black lid. Like all the other liquid lipsticks, in this case, too, the applicator is attached to the lid. The applicator is nothing too special, it is very similar to many other applicators available in the market.
My Experience with Lakme Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color Vintage Pink:
Vintage Pink is my second most favorite shade from the entire line after mild mauve. Though I am a bright lipstick girl, somehow the brighter shades from the collection didn’t work too well for me. The shade Vintage Pink is a beautiful subtle everyday kind of a pink shade which looks good with almost anything I wear. The color might not show up much on pigmented lips and might not even look good on all skin tones, but I personally loved the color.
Like the other colors form the collection, this one too dries completely matte and is transfer proof once dry. But, the staying power of the shade is inferior as compared to the darker shades. The darker shades from the collection fade from the inner sections after a meal, but the shade vintage pink simply disappears. Though this makes it little easier to reapply the color when required.
If I ignore the fact that the color completely becomes invisible after a meal, I would give it a 5/5. For me, the color is beautiful, it is kind of an MLBB shade for me. But, the color might not be a good option for everyone. Though it is a beautiful color, I would suggest trying the color in the store before actually buying it for yourself.
