Sometime ago, I received an invitation from Lakme India to the unveiling of their Lakme Absolute Sculpt Studio Hi-definition Matte lipsticks at Anamika Khanna's store because she is also showcasing her new collection at Lakme fashion Week.

Well, honestly, I have nothing much to say about apparel because I mostly dress in
classic or conservative or too laid back. But since, I always jazz up everything with colors, I was more excited about the lipsticks.

I won't go much into details about what the brand claims and so on. But would just give you heads up about things you want to know and things I completely see eye to eye.

Purnima Lamba, who created this line and colors, said something which I completely agree with. Pastels for summer may be good for Caucasian skin aka white skin, but for us, they just don't work! ( no wonder why I never could make them work and felt they were tacky on the skin. ) So, she came up with intensely pigmented, bright, sunny colors which would dazzle and be a better substitute for our skin tones.

Why I welcome it? Something exclusively for women of colors, especially, in India! Sounds weird? 
I feel that even though we are brown, the obsession for whiteness is being banked upon by brands who to go the extent of promises of making one 'white', even if that means inclusion of steroids which is lethal; even the SAs, instead of giving the right foundation color, would say " Ma'am, you are quite fair" and hand you the wrong color, of course lighter than your skin color, more so if you have dark skin.

I hope the brand thinks the same and revamps it's base colors.

What I liked about this line?


The shades are vibrant! I love wearing vibrant colors. They holler "happiness" right from the tubes!

The texture is good! They are neither creamy matte nor powder matte. They feel comfortable on the lips, yet, do look matte. And yes, the staying power is really impressive.

Pigmentation: One swipe imparts good color. But of course, I would swipe at least twice or thrice for the beautiful precise finish.

What I still complain about?

The price. A whooping 800 INR is not really that affordable. Yet, I think, if you have not managed to hoard tons of lipstick which you are desperately trying to redistribute, do get hold of at least two of these lipsticks!


Alright, who am I kidding? Go and get at least two, lipstick hoarder or not!
