My Experience :
I never had any particular interest for Lakme lipsticks but I had a slight tilt towards matte lipsticks. So after reading good reviews from everyone about Lakme Absolute Matte lipsticks I thought of buying them and giving them a try! And I bought 2 lipsticks from this range, they are Lakme Absolute Matte in Classic Rose and Brilliant Kiss. Today, I will review Lakme Absolute Matte – Classic Rose.
Well, it comes in a silver colored bullet with label of Lakme Absolute Matte on it. At the bottom of the lipstick you can find the name and number of the shade. It is sturdy and travel friendly, it won’t ooze out. The bullet needs to be twisted for the lipstick to come up. Inside, the lipstick has got a very comfortable shape which makes it easier to apply.
The texture of this lipstick is not so creamy but it glides on smoothly. However, for better appearance you should exfoliate and moisturize your lips well before applying it. I personally always exfoliate my lips before applying my lipstick or lip gloss/lip balm as the dead cells get brushed off from your lips and your lips look clean an ready for application. And coming to this, it is a perfect matte lipstick for if you love matte lipsticks.
On application, you will observe that it appears to be semi-creamy on lips and when you leave it for 5-10seconds (post application), it dries up on your lips and the color looks beautiful on your lips, giving you a perfect matte finish. It stays on beautifully for 2.5-3 hours and after that it fades away. But it doesn’t leave behind fine lines on lips which surprised me! It is non-transferable. It stays on intact well, for 2.5 hours and it doesn’t fade away even with snacks in between but with heavy meals it completely disappears from your lips. But after application – the perfect matte finish is something that you’d adore abou his lipstick. The pigmentation is quite deep, 1-2 swipes gives you a perfect color on your lips but you can apply 1 swipe as a lip stain on your lips. It doesn’t feather or bleed. This particular shade would suit everyone!
Here I am flaunting my lips with Lakme Absolute Matte in Classic Rose!!
Pros of the Product :

- It stays on well for 3 hours even with snacks in between.
- It doesn’t feather or bleed.

Cons of the Product :
- For the price of 375rupees, I would surely expect a bit longer staying power.

Apart from these, I find this as a very beautiful lipstick. Everyone would love it.
