Lakme Absolute Lip Tint Matte Review
A few days ago, I reviewed the new Lakme Absolute Lip Pout in StarletRed, which was a gorgeous blue-based eminently wearable shade of red. I am going to show you three more shades from the range – and one of them is my absolute favourite for the upcoming festive season. As the city prepares itself for the advent of Durga Puja, some festive Fall 2015 colours are now visible, and shades of orange, pink and plum are very definitely in now.

My Take:

The shades I received are all matte and have good colour pay-off. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook (Instagram handle: panushwari), I got a lot of requests for a lip swatch of the shade Tangerine Touch, and I have been wearing it the most ever since I got these shades.
The colours do not bleed at all, are well pigmented and does not look like paint sitting on my lips. They have a lovely blending quality which I find extremely appealing and I am loving the mild vanilla scent. 
lakme pink fantasy
The shade Pink Fantasy is a gorgeous shade of blue-based pink, veering slightly towards magenta, and is extremely wearable. It was the creamiest of the lot, and wore for 5 hours easily without me eating or drinking, and faded minimally. It faded unevenly after I had a meal, but left a stain, so I think it’s a good idea to re-apply after a meal. In fact, the same can be said about the rest, although both Tangerine Touch and Magenta Magic were longer in wear time. It did not dry out my lips at all but did transfer a bit.

lakme tangerine touch
Tangerine Touch is a lovely shade of brick orange, which settled on my lips like a dream and wore for 6-7 hours, with minimal eating and drinking copious amounts of water. It also had minimal transfer, and did not dry my lips out. If you notice, this one has medium coverage and the pigmentation is not very intense, so those who want to experiment with orange, but are too afraid to use it, can easily do so. This shade is quite flattering on lips, and looks very good when photographed (trust me, I have done my share). 

lakme magenta magic
Magenta Magic is a lovely plum-purple shade and very suited for the upcoming festive season. This one lasted the longest on my lips, about 8 hours, left a stain, but also dried my lips out slightly, so I would suggest using a lip balm underneath it. It had minimum transfer in the three. Also, I am quite happy with the intensity of the colour – looks really lovely, and I think this one can easily become a crowd favourite because virtually any one can pull this colour off. 
I think personally, Lakme has a winner with this range, and the shades are priced at 650/- per pop, so quite pretty. There are other gorgeous shades from this range which are worth checking out – like Victorian Rose and Raving Red
