I’ve been a matte lip lover ever since I discovered the world of lipsticks. After having tried gazillions of them I felt like if there was one problem that persists throughout the matte lipstick segment then it would be that most of them dry out the lips. I’ve detested over-drying matte lipsticks all my life which is why I was so glad to see the Lakmé Absolute Matte Ultimate range It is enriched with argan oil which ensures that the lipstick sits comfortably on the lips while providing a velvety matte texture. Additionally, one swipe is all you need. The pigment has an intense colour payoff which I absolutely love. I’m wearing the Royal Rust shade. It’s a beautiful blend of rust, coral infused with plenty of pink. If you’ve always struggled with finding the perfect matte, you must try out this range.

I am a big lipstick hoarder who’s always on the lookout for a nice matte lipstick. Because let’s be honest, the matte trend isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon. I recently got my hands on the Lakmé Absolute Matte Ultimate Argan Oil Lipstick and tried the shade Delicious Plum. This gorgeous colour is perfect for a night out. Besides the fact that it glides so smoothly and doesn’t leave my lips dry (which is incredibly amazing BTW), I loved how a single swipe gives such rich pigmentation. For bold matte lovers, it’s a complete package. I would say my search is over, thanks to this range.

My love for matte lipsticks is no surprise. I am currently obsessed with lip shades in brown and earthy tones. I think they are perfect for winter and fall. After getting my hands on the new Lakmé Absolute Matte Ultimate range I totally loved the brownish nude shades – Chocolate Brownie & Brunch Nude. As a lipstick it is super smooth to apply and extremely comfortable. Since I wear a ton of liquid lipsticks they often leave my lips dry and chapped. The argan oil extract in Lakmé Absolute Matte Ultimate range helps lock in the moisture on my lips, so they don’t feel patchy after a while. I would recommend using it with a lip liner for longer wear. These are great shades which can take your work to date or dinner look from 1 to 10.

I am not a very makeup-y kind of girl. I wear the bare minimum makeup required on a daily basis. I also prefer colours that are not too bright. This is the reason I loved the shade Petal Pink from the Lakmé Absolute Matte Ultimate Argan Oil Lipstick range. It is a nude-pink shade that provides just enough colour but does not look too obvious. I have dry lips and the lipstick keeps my lips feeling moisturised for the longest time.

It was love at first swipe! I find bold colours too bright on myself and therefore I’m always on the lookout for a pumped-up version of my natural lip colour. When I tried the shade Rose Pink I knew it had to be a part of my lipstick collection. Compliments have been pouring in right from the first day I started wearing it. My pout never looked this good in selfies!
