Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict Lipsticks in Desert Rose and Red Delight... are absolutely addictive!

I always thought that I have an addiction of creamy opaque Lipsticks. But recently, I rediscovered the addict in me who would go 'wheee' with any good quality lipstick!
When I had got the Lakme Absolute Lipsticks, summer was at its peak and I avoid

glossy lips in summer, since an oily glossy shiny face doesn't go with it and naturally I
stowed it away for winter. But as the weather is drier, I need intense moisturizing, I love juicy lips with luscious color.

Desert Rose: It's a pink with hint of coral and a touch of bubblegum.

Red Delight: It's a beautiful red. I don't exactly know how to describe. But I am loving it.

Texture: The lipsticks feel like lip balm and lip color rolled into one. Just what I need!

My Experience: The lipsticks are glossy and sheer, but do not underestimate. They dispense enough color to make them show up on the lips. They impart that elusive kind of pigments which look sheer from close, but pretty vibrant from afar.

In the beginning, I did not like these because I though they won't show up well... at least, not on me.

But, I was pretty much taken aback.

As for the packing: It's convenient, transparent cap, and yes, when the bullet is rolled back, the lipsticks twist back with a CLICK indicating, it has closed. I have been using them for some time now, and the bullets still have not diminished in size. So, don't be afraid of pulling these out.

While digging through the photos, I came across a random photo I had clicked before going somewhere. Excuse me. Not everyday do I dress impeccably. It was taken back in July I think. Long time, huh?

Yes! That's me!

I forgot what I wore, but there was a whole lot of sunscreen for sure. I am wearing Desert Rose in my lips.


The lipsticks come for around 800 INR a pop. Ouch! But, for the texture, I might shell out in case some other color catches my fancy.

Verdict: The lispticks do look and feel like luxury products, and the texture is lovely. If you are fond of sheer, glossy texture, go for it. They moisturize intensely. I am pretty surprised at the quality. Yet, I hoped Lakme would make these more affordable.
