REVIEW: Lakme Absolute Matte Lip Tints

Lakme Absolute Matte Lip Tints - Raving Red, Starlet Red & Magenta Magic

So I just had a late night shower and since I wasn't getting any sleep, I decided to watch TV... Guess what's on, on Comedy Central right now... FRIENDS... Am not a fan, have never been but S1 E12 is kind of cute :) And Joey is kind of hot, is that just me or does anyone feel that too?


So anyhow, when Friends could not hold my attention much longer, I sat down to write a review... Sooooo Beauty Blogger, right? Right? And while I was going through pictures that I had clicked eons ago of products that I still need to review, I came across these super gorgeous pictures of Lakme Lip Tints that I probably am the only beauty blogger who hasn't reviewed yet... Siiggghhhh...

You know what drew me to these lip tint babies, I mean come on, they are yet another batch of lip crayons in the market... But well the packaging is so classy! I mean the quality, the colors and the fact that they are matte, simply rakes up the right points in my scoreboard :)

Price of Lakme Absolute Matte Lip Tints

They cost INR 650/-

Lame Absolute Matte Lip Tints come in self coloured crayon kind of packaging with matte silver caps and you need to rotate them to dispense the color stick outwards... You know the typical lip crayon packaging but of super quality... I have had these babies since almost 4 months now and I carry them in my bag but the lettering is still intact :)

Magenta Magic is a strong purplish Pink that is bright and vibrant and it immediately brightens up my complexion. Just this baby and I am ready to go. It simply pops and you cannot ignore this color my friend... In a good way...
Starlet Red is a beautiful Red with a little yellow undertones while Raving Red has pinkish undertones. On the lips they look the same but there is a little difference... I wish I could explain it better!
Pigmentation wise they are the bomb especially Magenta Magic and Startlet Red. Raving Red is a little light for my liking but the shade is gorgeous...

Coming to the finish, these lip tints are matte to the core and can sometimes be a hassle cause they do tend to emphasise dry, flaky lips but if you exfoliate your lips beforehand then they will see you through for sure...
The staying power is really good and they don't fade till for almost 6 hours even after meals.

They are priced well, they have awesome pigmentation and they are freaking matte... I don't need to say anything more, now do I? But I'll still spell it out for you guys... Buy them!


  1. Guess what? I have watched friends just once when i was doing my engineering. After that, NEVER! Somehow I do not like it too much.
    Also, I am yet to review them on blog. In fact, I got them just few days back - quite an interesting story behind that BTW. I think I should write that story on my blog now :P
    Thanks for the blog idea, babe XoxoX

  4. All the 3 shades look gorgeous. And I like that they have mentioned the expiry on the cap and not on a peel away elastic film.

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.
