Hey guys! Hope you’re doing well!
Today, I’ll be reviewing a lovely red lipstick from Lakme’s new Absolute Gloss Addict Range. These are sheer glossy lipsticks and give a lovely finish. I’ve previously reviewed the shade Desert Rose here.
Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict in Red Delight is a warm toned red. It’s kind of like a true red. It’s like a more pigmented version of Revlon Lip Butter in Cherry Tart and more warm toned compared to Revlon Lacquer Balm in Provocateur or Revlon True Red.
These are sheer lipsticks but this particular colour is a lot more pigmented than your average sheer lipstick and also the other shade in the range, Desert Rose. You can see in the comparison swatch, it is way more pigmented than the Revlon Lip Butter.
Two swipes is enough to get a good true colour that fully covers your lips. The formula is really nice. It’s thin in consistency and feels very light on the lips.
This doesn’t settle into lines. I also had dry lips when I took these pictures and it just completely glossed over the problem areas, made them appear smooth and full. The finish is also very glossy with a lot of shine.
These wear well for 4-5 hours but are very much prone to transfer. It will pretty much come off if you eat or drink so not one to be worn if you want it to last long.
The packaging looks good from afar but it’s just flimsy when and very light when you feel in in person. Definitely can’t carry this around with me as the cap wobbles a lot.
You get 4ml of product for Rs. 800 which does seem like a lot imo!
