Lakme Absolute Lip Tint in Candy Kiss

Hello there! I can barely bring myself to do anything this Sunday and I have a million things on my list. Going to start ticking them off now, starting with blog stuff. :)

Also thank you for the birthday wishes and your input on skincare. I’m not making any drastic changes to my routine but I guess I’m just going to be more observant about the changes. That involves a lot of time staring at myself in the mirror which won’t┬ábe too hard. ­čśë

I had previously reviewed the shade Orange Tease from the Lakme Absolute Lip Tint range, a more pigmented orange colour. This one is sheer.

Lakme Absolute Lip Tint in Candy Kiss is a more sheer peachy orange. I somehow like this more than Orange Tease because it’s even on the lips and more wearable. It gives a nice peachy tint and really smoothes over the lips. I feel YSL Corail in Touch is similar when swatched but it looks more pink on the lips eventually. Revlon Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti is also a good cheaper alternative but it is a more yellow toned orange.

It doesn’t settle into lines or feel too heavy. As far as sheer lipsticks go this ticks all the boxes and I like the glossy finish. It’s rather moisturising as well but the wear time is on the lower side. On me it lasts about 2-3 hours after which it loses its sheen and starts to fade. Of course, any eating/drinking will┬ámake it fade more rapidly.

I like the retractable packaging but I hate the cap. It doesn’t fit properly and it’s so easy to lose! You get 2g of product for Rs. 800 which is a bit low on the g/Rs ratio but if it’s the colour you’re after, it’s a great choice.

    nice review

    • Xuvious

      Yes, so glad the Chubby Sticks came out first. Everyone had to follow suit. ­čśë

  • Linda Libra Loca

    The color is very pretty, but loosing the cap is a deal breaker for me. I always throw my lip products in my purse, so it would end up hot mess.

    • Xuvious

      Yep, it’s not very travel friendly. I haven’t had too many accidents but a broken bullet makes me feel like all that money spent is lost (even though it’s still useable).

      • Linda Libra Loca

        I know what you mean. It is just disappointing.

  • fiona furtado

    The colour looks FAB on you!

    • Xuvious

      Thank you! xx

  • Clever Girl Reviews

    I like that color on you. Perfect mix of coral!

    • Xuvious

      Yes! Corals can look too neon on me at times, this one suits my skintone quite well. :)

  • Agata

    The shade is really pretty, I would definitely wear it in the spring and in the summer!

    • Xuvious

      Yes, it’s a very spring appropriate shade. Although I like wearing them in the day if it’s really hot (which is pretty much always regardless of season). :)

  • nausheen

    Not my choice, but nice review dear :)

    • Xuvious

      Thanks! Have you liked any other shades from the Lip Tints?

  • Jennifer Monforton

    Love the glossy finish and a pretty shade for Spring :)

    • Xuvious

      Yep, it’s a summer favourite for me! :)

  • Jaa

    It’s actually much more pigmented than I thought! Looks really nice and spring-y on you! ­čśÇ

    • Xuvious

      Yep, I always bring it out in the summer! It’s my safe orange choice. :)
