Review, Swatches and Price of Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict lipstick in Desert Rose
By Contributor: Agnirupa
I am back after a short break and as usual with another lipstick for you guys! Not bored yet I hope? Lakme went mad a few months back and kept on launching new stuff back-to-back. Happy us! But grr..the prices! I wasn’t much impressed by these overpriced gloss addict lipsticks either but ever since I have seen this shade being reviewed on a beauty blog, I promptly went crazy and ordered it online! Meet lakme gloss addict lipstick in Desert Rose!
Lakme Claims: Join the gloss revolution! Get addicted to the best of both worlds – Incredible hi-shine of a liquid lip gloss & one stroke application of a lipstick. Introducing Lakmé Absolute Gloss Addict: Created by backstage Experts at Lakmé Fashion Week for Runway-Ready lips in 15 Glamorous Shades! Lakmé Reinvent. Professional High shine in a single stroke application. Available in 15 Shades
The packaging of these gloss addict lipsticks is very sexy and sleek, encased in a gunmetal tube packaging with a tight clear c ap for easy demarcation between multiple shades you own. Classy and travel friendly packaging.
The texture is superb!! Its almost like the mac lustre finish lippies- light, glossy, very smooth and not at all heavy/sticky. It glides on lips like butter and smoothes out all sorts of lip flaws- resulting in a healthy pout with a glossy finish.
The shade desert rose is simply amazing thank god for that blog reference! It’s a toned-down classic rose pink with subtle hints of coral which make it such a gorgeous soft everyday color- a pretty pink flush which brightens up any look. The pigmentation is pretty good, considering the light glossy finish and you need a couple of swipes to obtain the true color. Your natural lip color will influence the outcome a lot though.
The lasting power is very good as well, and doesn’t budge from my lips for around 4 hours with light food and drinks which is great for such a light lipstick.
The pros of Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict Lipstick Desert Rose:
- Sexy gunmetal tube packaging with a clear cap
- Buttery gorgeous light glossy texture- non-heavy/greasy.
- Beautiful rosy pink- subtle yet a pretty pick-me-up shade
- Pigmentation is good- a couple of swipes required
- Lasting power is great as well for a light glossy lipstick and lasts around 4 hours with food/drinks.
The cons of Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict Lipstick Desert Rose:
- Overpriced of course
VNA Rating: 4/5
Do I recommend? Even a couple of months back, I would have advised you to invest a bit more and get a mac lustre finish lipstick instead but now (na baba na) even overpriced lakme for 800 bucks is a ton nicer than a 2k lipstick. Plus these have gorgeous buttery texture, good glossy finish, pigmentation and decent lasting power. Thumbs up!
