Lakme Absolute Scupt Studio Matte Lipsticks 2015 launch

Lakme is all about bold shades this season, and the new look is all about bright shades. Year 2015 marks Lakme Fashion Week’s 15th Year, and the brand celebrates it with the launch of the new ‘Sculpt’ range, with brand new shades of Absolute Sculpt Studio Matte Lipsticks. Available in 15 colors, these shades are gorgeous and perfect for the warm Indian skin tone, according to Anamika Khanna, Grand Finale Designer for Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015.

“I think this year it is all about the sculpted look, with emphasized features like the lips. I am matching some outfits that would look beautiful with the bright colors, and the new fashion trend is now leaning towards a look which is more feminine and celebrates womanhood,” Said Anamika Khanna, who was present for the event at her flagship store in Kolkata. Also present was Purnima Lamba, Head of Innovation, Lakme, who talked about the matte shades which will be available in 15 different shades. For the event, 7 bright shades were selected and exclusively available. The texture of the lipsticks were superb – smooth and emollient, and they looked amazing on me.

Lakme Absolute Sculpt Studio Matte Lipstick Colors 

 I swatched all the shades and found a couple of them which really struck my fancy – a dark warm brown shade which I am wearing below, and a lovely tangerine shade which looked absolutely stunning once I wore it, although at first I thought it would be too orange for me (you can see from the swatch – its the fourth one from the left).

As you can see, the shades look really bright. Under the yellow light, I could not really catch some of the colors properly, but I have to say, there is a gorgeous plum shade which was worn by D of Poutprettty, called Plum Spell, and she looked absolutely stunning wearing it. There was another bright red worn by my friend S from Sorelle Grapevine, and she still had it on after she had eaten a full meal! I on the other hand was struck with the browns and the oranges, and decided to check the shades out.

Wearing Lakme Absolute Sculpt Studio Matte Lipstick 

Of course, I am bound to gravitate towards the food scene, and apart from the usual cold drinks on offer, they did have some really nice chocolate tarts and these little canapés topped with olives and peppers and some sour cream on top. I might have popped a few in my mouth while others were busy wearing lipsticks.


Anamika Khanna revealed that this year, her showstopper at LFW will be Kareena Kapoor, and she will be sporting some of the shades, and her look will be feminine and sexy. I might have vented my anger at not being able to find too many clothes that suit girls with curves, and she agreed wholeheartedly. I must say, I am looking forward to the collection and the looks the collaboration produces – and Lakme Sculpt will be
