I was really excited to use the new lakme lip pout as it was my first time using a chubby stick with bold and vibrant colours. This shade tangerine touch which is a coral orange is wonderful for winter and will enliven the cool days with its subtle warmth. It’s also a perfect colour for spring time and will look rich and vibrant with floral dresses. I am really glad they launched Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte Lip Tint Tangerine Touch which I will review and swatch today around this time of the year. It was fun to use it because it reminded me of my childhood crayon days and bright, artsy walls I bestowed on my parents. I also relived my disney fantasies with these.
Lakme Claims: Lakme introduces their ‘Lip Pout’ range this winter/festive season 2015 which comes in six gorgeous shades. They however did have lip crayons earlier by the name of Lip Tints. These bold 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, thereby expelling the sharpeners.
Shades Available: Pink Fantasy, Magenta Magic, Tangerine Touch, Ravishing Red, Scarlet Rose and Scarlet Red
My Review of Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte Tangerine Touch:
The fragrance of lip pouts is fruity and gives out a summery vibe. The twisting knob at the bottom is smooth and the product comes out easily. The quality however is dry as it tugs on my lips hence making it very hard to apply. Lakme lip pout glides swiftly on the back of the hand but it is just the reverse on the lips. The stick has to be rubbed over and over to get the actual colour. It can easily take more than 10 strokes to fill out the lips and get the actual colour. The finish result is absolute matte, which I adore!
The best way to use it would be to exfoliate the lips and smoothen them out the night before, so that the drying effects of this matte lip tint can be minimized, would crease comparatively less and would last somewhat longer. It lasted on me for a solid 4 hours and then left a subtle hue for a couple of hours more.
Presenting Ariel’s new favourite: Lakme Absolute Lip Tint Matte in Tangerine Touch
“I swear my hair feels smoother now!” Ariel exclaimed excitedly as she ran the fork through her hair again and again. Sebastian, the red crab watched the little mermaid with an annoyed look. “Really princess, I must insist that you cease these actions immediately!” he cried.
Flounder the bright yellow and blue tropical fish looked at Sebastian, “What actions are you talking about?” he asked. “Why this…this habit of hers! Roaming around in dangerous shark filled waters and bringing home these… god knows what!” Sebastian cried angrily.
“But Sabastian, how do you not find these interesting! Just look at them. They are so peculiar yet beautiful!” she said dreamily. “Look at what I found today!” she said suddenly and swam towards them and held out a brightly coloured tube-like thing. “Whatever is this thing? Are we supposed to eat it?” Sebastian asked, clasping the tube in his claws. “You will see in a minute!” Ariel said and took it from him and took off the silver cap. “It has a very tangy smell!” she exclaimed.
“Oh Ariel, its colour matches your hair!” Flounder said excitedly. Ariel rubbed the stick on her palm and to check out the colour and her surprise, it matched her hair and personality! “Should we colour our bodies?” Flounder asked. Ariel however had a much pleasant idea. She took out the broken piece of glass which she had collected and held it up. Slowly she glided the coloured stick on her lips while her friends watched. Sebastian then turned to examine the young princess’ face.
The colour was a perfect match and Sebastian and Flounder looked at the beautiful princess in awe. “W-What is it?” Sebastian chocked out. “It’s called Lakme Absolute Lip Pout, Tangerine Touch!” The little mermaid answered happily.

Conclusion: This particular shade of coral is available from various brands and in various forms. Even though the stick itself was dry, it didn’t make my lips feel uncomfortable. It however needed to be rubbed over and over and it tugged a lot. The end result was a gorgeous shade of tangerine which screams fun and is absolutely lovely. It lasted a good 6 hours even after a meal and beverage. Highly recommended. It will definitely perk up your vanity kit!
