Team POPxo Reviewed The All New Lakmé Absolute Matte Ultimate Lip Colors And Here's Their Verdict

Nidhi Kavle, Junior Beauty Editor

Lipstick is an essential part of my daily routine and probably the only part of it, to be honest. I have relatively clear skin on most days so I don’t bother doing too much. I love bright, bold lipsticks, they seem to make me look younger and fresher. I usually gravitate towards liquid lipsticks because they stay put all day. I tried the Lakmé Absolute Matte Ultimate Lip Color With Argan Oil in Peaches N Cream and fell in love with the texture. It was creamy, yet long-lasting and in just a swipe I had bright poppin’ lips. While it didn’t last as long as my liquid lipstick did, it faded away evenly leaving a sheer wash of colour on my lips.

I don’t like wearing lipsticks because I have eternally chapped lips. I feel that every lipstick tends to settle into the fine lines on my lips and make me look older. Yes, I know it sounds silly but I hate it when lipsticks make my lips all crusty. This lipstick in the shade Sinful Cherry (which was totally out of my comfort zone) made my lips feel soft and nourished all day. Whenever I pursed my lips together, they didn’t feel uncomfortable or dry. I think I’m definitely going to pick up a lighter shade in this lipstick for everyday wear since it’s so comfortable.

I don’t wear makeup to work, just sunscreen, lip balm and I’m ready to leave the house. I tried this lipstick in the shade Red Extreme and I think it’s going to replace my lip balm. It’s a creamy, moisturising lipstick that’s not too overwhelming for someone like me. The lipstick did keep my lips soft all day, so if you love the feeling of a lip balm and the look of a lipstick, this is going to give you the best of both worlds!

Being a beauty writer, it’s safe to say that all things makeup are my achilles heel. I tend to gravitate more towards lipsticks than most other makeup products because they’re easy, versatile and perfect to brighten up your face on a no makeup day. A creamy, satin finish lipstick is the perfect formula to pick for work. It won’t dry out your lips and it’s okay if you have to reapply. While the barbie pink colour I picked from the new Lakmé Absolute Matte Ultimate Lip Color With Argan Oil range in Rose Pink is a new look for me, the formula was soft, smooth and didn’t tug while applying. I do my fair share of munching through the day so the lipstick did fade off slightly by the end of the day, but that’s the case with every other lipstick I own.

I own a lot of lipsticks but I’m always on the hunt for the next best formula. This creamy, matte lipstick from Lakmé in the shade Petal Pink definitely has my heart. It has the smoothest application, stays put for 5-6 hours and it doesn’t settle into any cracks and crevices on your lips. It makes your lips look plump and plush! For anyone who hates the feeling of a matte lipstick on their lips, this formula will have you at the very first swipe.
