The all-new Lakmé Absolute Matte Ultimate Collection—a glamorous matte lipstick range with twelve splendid shades for every occasion—was launched at the Lakmé Fashion Week S/R 2019! And the beauty obsessed bunch that we are, team BB was present at the launch in full attendance, to try and test the new range. This new collection is exclusively available on www.lakmeindia.com.

Team BB got their hands on the range and after multiple swatch sessions, applications and trial rounds of this Matte Ultimate Collection, our verdict is finally out. Here is what we thought of the range...

These bullet lipsticks come with a comfortable, lightweight formula which means they do not feel heavy on the lips. Secondly, they are enriched with argan oil that not only nourishes your lips, but also, keeps it from drying. Thirdly, the 12-shade collection has a colour for every occasion. From the deepest red to the most natural nude, there is a shade for everyone. And lastly, each bullet from the collection boasts of a soft velvety matte texture that sits comfortably on your lips. What I absolutely loved about the collection is the bold, intense colour payoff that these bullet lipsticks provide”

Finally a matte lipstick that is not drying for my lips

With matte lipsticks comes the trouble of dealing with dry lips. But, this new range of bullet lipsticks from Lakmé Absolute is a saviour on that front. Because these lipsticks come enriched with the natural goodness of argan oil, I can now happily say goodbye to dry lips and at the same time sport all the matte lips I want, with élan.
