Lakme introduced their Lip Pout range this lakme fashion week winter/festive season 2016 which comes in six gorgeous shades. They however did have lip crayons earlier by the name of Lip Tints. These bold matte lip pout shades are here to play with your lips and add definition to them and also to enhance your outfits. These chubby sticks give you luscious lips and ebullient matte finish. They feature quick, easy and comfortable application which come in a retractable pencil expelling the sharpeners. I have already reviewed shade Tangerine Touch on VNA, today I will review and swatch Lakme Absolute matte lip pout Pink Fantasy.

My Review of Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte Pink Fantasy:
This shade of hot pink called Pink Fantasy has always been my go-to colour as it brightens up any monotone outfit and adds a pop of fun shade on the face which is eye-catching and quirky. As I mentioned in the previous post while reviewing Tangerine Touch, these matte lip tints are fun to use and they brought out the excited little girl in me all over again. The fragrance resembles bubble-gum and is faintly aromatic and it is not overpowering.
The twisting knob at the bottom is smooth and the lip pout comes out easily. The quality however is dry as it tugs on my lips hence making it very hard to apply. Unlike Tangerine Touch, this one feels dry on the lips as well. For the colour to be built, the lakme matte lip pout has to be rubbed over and over.
It can easily take more than 10 strokes to fill out the lips and get the actual colour. Lakme pink fantasy can be used on top of a lip balm to avoid the dryness instead of just applying it directly on the lips. I used a clear lip gloss on top of the lakme absolute pout and it made the colour stand out even more and imparted a slight 3-D effect. The finished result (without the additional lip gloss, of course) is absolute matte, which I adore!
INTRODUCING CINDERELLA’S NEW FAVOURITE: Lakme Absolute Matte Pink Fantasy
Cinderella was heartbroken. Not only was her step-mother cruel and heartless, she had also destroyed the gown her mother had left her! She lay on the ground weeping. She felt that there was no one in the world left to comfort her. Naturally, she was bewildered when she met her ‘Fairy Godmother’.
Fairy Godmother was determined that Cinderella go to the ball but Cinderella pointed out that her dress was destroyed and she had nothing proper to wear to the ball. Fairy Godmother took charge at once; transforming rats into horses and a pumpkin into a carriage, she turned to Cinderella. Glittering sparkles flashed out of her wand as she twirled it around Cinderella. It engulfed her completely and began transforming her attire and her hair in to sheer magnificence. In the end, Cinderella emerged draped in a lavishly flowing gorgeous blue-white gown and her hair was pulled back into an elegant bun. She was loveliness herself.
Cinderella was so happy she could have cried and she danced around her Fairy Godmother stunned with happiness. She twirled around and admired her gown and her glass slippers. “Oh! Godmother! This is so beautiful! How can I ever thank you!” she cried in her sweet voice. “Hang on, dear! There is something missing!” Fairy Godmother said, placing her thumb on her chin. Her eyebrows scrunched as she was deep in her thoughts. “Ah, I know!” she said and twirled her wand and a bright pink chub stick appeared in Cinderella’s palm. “This is it! This will do the trick! This is “Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte, Pink Fantasy “ she said.
Cinderella glided it along her soft lips. “Oh dear me! I was right! It transformed the outfit! Cinderella dear, you look beautiful! Now hurry! Your prince awaits!”

Conclusion: This particular shade of pink is also available from various brands and in various forms. The stick was dry and it tugged a lot and made my lips dry as well but when used long with a lip balm, it diminishes dryness to a considerable amount. The end result was a gorgeous shade of bright hot pink which is one of my favourite colours so I absolutely loved it. It lasted a good solid 5 hours without any gloss on top and even after a complete meal. Its shelf life is for 2 years which I consider to be a really good deal. Its a very nice, girly and chic addition to your vanity kit if you like hot pinks!
