Lakme Lip Tint ( Matte) Magenta Magic: Better than it looks!

Lakme Lip Tint Magenta Magic review, swatch, price.

With the on going matte trend, I also started dabbling around. Honestly speaking, even though I like matte texture, finding something comfortable on my lips has always been a struggle. I am pretty fond of Lakme 9 to 5 lipsticks, at the same time, I quite enjoyed the Gloss Addict Lipsticks. ( Recently I finished up one). I didn't know what to expect from the Lip Tints ( I showed those on Instagram here).

When I first heard that it's matte, I thought it would be just another matte lipstick in the market. But the tint made me think that it would be a liquid one ( the kind Lakme had years ago).

When it finally arrived, I got too excited primarily because of the piano designed creative box. I had already given a preview a very long time back on my
Instagram page. You can still take a look at those from here.

My experience of Lakme Lip Pout in Magenta Magic:
On pulling out this brilliant colour, I was amazed. It says magenta; it is deep magenta and looks a very cool toned, pinkish red or reddish pink on my lips. I think it's one of those colors which can be my Holy Grail colors I can put on and be Va va voom!

It comes in crayon format, but does not need sharpening because it can be twisted up from the base. The body is of same color as the product and all the stylos come with a silver plastic cap.

The texture is interesting. It does not drag and goes on smoothly. But, unlike 
lipsticks, there's no layer of product, but it adds tint. Don't be mistaken because it does not fall short in pigment. In fact, once swipe deposits enough colour. I usually go over twice for precision.

It does transfer a bit but not of course like regular lipsticks. The staying power is
impressive. Even with light meals and snacks, it stays on for at least 12 hours. ( Haven't worn longer than that) and it fades evenly. Even then, it does not fade much. The intensity might be only lightened. Otherwise, I am still good. If I am not able to touch up, I wouldn't worry as I know the colour would be still there.

At the end, I would always remove with some makeup remover. otherwise, the  stain stays on.

Even with frequent use, I have been able to only blunt the tip a bit out of shape. I see this one lasting me ages. 

The price is a bit steep. 700 INR for 2.2 grams ( I think)

What I don't like about it? Nothing I can really complain about. The price? May

Verdict: I am head over heels with this particular color Magenta Magic from Lakme. It is an unusually perfect balance of red and pink and I simply adore it. I also love the pigmentation and the staying power, how it is matte, yet not uncomfortable and extremely light weight. In short, it is just my kind of lip product and of course my shade!

Recommendation: I think this color would work for all skin tones and if you like
this kind of colors, this one really is a must have in your kitty.

For my part, I am definitely repurchasing.
