It was this year that beauty mogul Lakmé announced their trend statement to be Liquid Gold. Last season, we saw the big launch of their range of argan oil-based makeup—a take on the international trend where the lines between skin care and makeup are slowly blurring. While last season we saw the launch of the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color range and the Lakmé Absolute Nourishing Nail Colour Remover with Argan Oil, this season at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017, we witnessed the launch of a series of argan oil based makeup and skin care products. Think your skin could do with some nourishing makeup? Here’s everything about the range...

A range of nourishing lipsticks with a matte finish

Is it really possible for makeup to be nourishing for your skin? Well, had this question come up years ago, we’d nod is disagreement but thanks to the new Lakmé Absolute Luxe Matte Lip Color with Argan Oil range, it’s totally possible. Barely few days into the launch and we’re wearing them everywhere—from boardroom meetings to dinner dates. Why? The colour pay off is so intense! Add to that the hydrating formula of argan oil and your lips would’ve never felt any better. Plus, it comes in a slimstick format, which is so light and easy to use. Oh and did we mention how the packaging is just as yummy—rose gold on the outside and black on the inside. Your lips are so ready for this colourful yet moisturised pout!

There’s no shame in admitting that most of us have blemished skin and often resort to makeup to conceal the scars and spots. What if we told you that covering them with makeup could actually do good to your skin? The Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation has turned that into a reality. We’ve made this into our go-to foundation because it gives our skin a dewy and hydrated feel (thanks to the argan oil in it) along with a medium coverage. We love it because it has a silky texture that blends beautifully into the skin. Like that wasn’t enough, it gives us an SPF 45 and fights the harmful sun rays. Not to forget, it comes with a dropper pack, which is so on trend!

What’s makeup without prep, right? Some of the biggest beauty experts will tell you how important it is for your skin to be ready for makeup. That’s done by ensuring that your skin is intensely hydrated. Infused with argan oil, the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Oil-in-Crème is has a non-greasy formula that feels feathery light on the skin while revitalizing your face. It also lends your skin an SPF 30 PA++ so you get sun protection in your daily crème.
