Hi everyone, today I am going to review a lipstick from Lakme’s hugely popular Absolute range, named Lakme Absolute Creme Lipstick in shade Crimson Affair. The Creme lipstick collection come in a range of exclusively wearable shades of peaches, pinks and red which are perfect for the brides and festive season. I got this lipstick as a free gift on purchase of Lakme makeup products from Nykaa.com.
Packaging : It comes in a sleek metallic packaging and the shade name is written at the bottom of the pack.
My Experience : Crimson Affair is a beautiful maroon red shade, which is a must have in bridal makeup kit. It has a strong vanilla fragrance that goes off after some time. Lakme Absolute Creme Lipstick has super smooth texture and is completely light weight. It provides complete opaque coverage with brilliant color payoff. It stays on my lips for 4-5 hours with light snack and drinks in between. It fades evenly and leaves a tint of color behind that stays on lips for 2-3 hours.
It is quite moisturizing and I don’t find the need to use lip balm underneath this lipstick. It gives perfectly pigmented lips without having to keep layering on the product. This lip color sets as a matte finish and you can apply gloss over it to get more dramatic look. It doesn’t settle in fine lines, but I recommend to apply lip balm underneath if you have extremely dry lips. It might bleed due to its creamy texture, so I prefer to use lip liner for precise application.
Lakme Absolute Creme Lipstick is enriched with vitamin E and Wheat Germ oil, which protects lips from damage with a really soothing effect. To be honest I am not liking this shade very much, as I find it bit loud for me. This is an awesome shade for bridals and will look fab on warm skin tones. I am using this lipstick as a stain, that way I find it more wearable. I will not repurchase this particular shade but will definitely buy pink or peachy shade from this range.
