Liquid lipsticks are in trend and the liquid matte formula has been around for years . I have dry lips so anything too drying doesn’t work or look pleasant on me. I have tried a lot of liquid matte formulas like Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks, Sugar Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipsticks and NYX Liquid Suede Lipsticks but the former two didn’t make me fall in love with their super drying long wearing formulas. I like a lipstick that stays on for a decent time without sucking the moisture out of my lips. Lakme has launched Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color and the formula is surprisingly comfortable.
Lakme Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color are available in 8 shades and I have 6 of them. The lipsticks come in transparent tubes with black caps. The wand is quite short and stiff, not my favourite. You have to go back twice or thrice to finish the application. Also it is quite stiff and I prefer the wand on Lip & Cheek color.
There are 8 shades available in this range and i have picked 6. The formula is somewhat similar to Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color however the formula of the Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color is a bit thinner and lighter.
Texture of these lipsticks is light weight and mousse like. It isn’t too runny or thick and has just the right consistency. The formula feels comfortable on the lips and doesn’t dry them out. I have been using Mulberry Feast non-stop and it has become my current favourite lipstick.
Pigmentation – Now these are medium to full coverage lipsticks . I have dark upper lip and to get an even coverage I do need two coats of Lakme Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color. With lighter shades layering is required but in darker shades one swipe is enough.
Staying Power is good 5-7 hours depending on the amount of drinking or eating one does in between.
Lakme Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color is priced at Rs 750, available online .
