Glossy lips are bae, but let’s face it; we’ll always love our mattes. They are the perfect way to rock a power pout and they stay put for so much longer. Isn’t that what we working girls are always looking for anyway? Well, the good news is matte lippies are here to stay! In fact, there’s a new kid on the block: the Lakmé Absolute Matte Revolution Lip Colors!

Now while nothing quite cheers us up like a lipstick can, even die-hard matte lipstick lovers would have to agree that most matte lipsticks weigh down their lips. It is the 21st century and nothing should weigh you down; not even your favourite lip colour. So we decided to test-drive the brand new lipsticks and find out whether they pass the ‘weightless’ test. That, and of course for their pigment and lasting power too!    

Here goes...

Super light formula

Let’s talk about the formula first, shall we? It has a creamy, lightweight formula, which makes it comfortable to wear all day long. The buttery soft texture easily glides on your lips and leaves a rich, matte colour payoff in just one swipe. Talking about the ingredients, it is enriched with raspberry seed oil, which, turns out, is extremely nourishing for your lips, so you don’t have to worry about dry and chapped lips. What more could a girl ask for?

Shades for everyone
 

Shades for everyone

So, the first question that pops into a lipstick junkie’s mind (read: our minds) is – does the collection feature shades that suit my skin tone? The Lakmé Absolute Matte Revolution Lip Color comes in 20 gorgeous shades, ranging from deep reds to pinks, and nude peaches to browns. We’re almost certain they’ll flatter all Indian skin tones beautifully and seem perfect for every occasion we could think of. (Note to self: Stock up for the festive season!)

Our verdict

So, after wearing Lakmé Absolute Matte Revolution Lip Color for a day, we’re pretty sold. The super light and creamy texture as well as the fact that it’s transfer-proof make it a winner in the matte lipstick category. Brownie points for not leaving our lips feeling like a parched desert. It promises a long-lasting pigment and we can vouch for that too. It didn’t budge even after we squaffed down a sloppy burger and sipped on chai. Believe us; that’s big!  

BRB, we’re now heading to lakmeindia.com to buy more of these babies!
