Lakme Absolute Lip Tints

     Hey there! After my haul of the Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stains I was not interested in getting the newly launched lip tints from Lakme as a) I had too much stuff already (ya like that stops me) and b) they were priced at 800 bucks a pop whereas Revlon was for 650 (again not reason enough for me usually but apparently it worked this time :P). So I stayed away from these……Well I did for as long as I could 😀

     But as faith would have it I got the whole I-need-to-compare-Revlon-Clinique-Lakme bit in my head and seemingly to support it New U had an offer on the Lakme ones and I got them for 700 bucks a piece. I didn’t know that they had different textures in it. I got a shimmer one in light peach color and a creamy kind of finish in orange. It has been a long time since I did an express review so today is your lucky day 😉

Lakme Absolute Lip Tints

Packaging:
* Lip crayon format
* Soft matte black body with black metal twist-able bottom and transparent plastic cap
* With the coral color writing on top the packing looks very classy. 
* Name of color is mentioned on the bottom
* Travel friendly packing
Peach Please

Lakme Absolute Lip Tint Peach Please

Texture:
* Contains fine glitter particles which feel slightly gritty on the lips
* The color disappears by the 4th kiss but the lips are left covered in glitter.
* Does not last eating/drinking
* The glitter ends up spreading then
* Neither moisturizing nor drying. Does not make you feel uncomfortable with it on if you have dry lips

Lakme Absolute Lip Tint Peach Please

Pigmentation:

* Soft peach color with silver glitter at the back of the hand.
* On the lips it looks like a light pink n~de shade but the shimmer looks prominent. 

* Looks like a shiny lipstick form a distance
* Provides medium to full coverage (I felt that you can build on the color to get full coverage)

Orange Tease

Lakme Absolute Lip Tint Orange Tease

Texture:

* Does not contain any glitter in it
* Looks and feels more like a lipstick
* More comfortable to wear than the previous one
* Disappears completely by the 5th kiss and sits in the lines
* Does not survive eating/drinking

Lakme Absolute Lip Tint Orange Tease

Lakme Absolute Lip Tint Orange Tease

Pigmentation:

* A nice soft orange color which is very wearable. For people who are apprehensive about wearing orange can try this one.
* Provides full coverage
* Can be layered to give a more intense color
* Does sit in the deeper lines
* Gives a lipstick finish

     I like both the colors that I got. Ended up leaning towards the orange based shades more as I have a lot of red and pink colors in my stash. Though the glitter in Peach Please could have done without the gritty feel. But overall I found them worth the price I paid. Do check out the Orange Tease color in store as it is quite pretty. Have you tried any of the shades from this range? Which ones are your favorite from it? Well I will be  back soon with a new review. Buh Bye!

Would you buy Lakme Absolute Lip Tints again? – They are LE products but I will look into some of the other colors in it. If ever this is re-promoted then I would pick up Orange Tease.

Would you recommend Lakme Absolute Lip Tints to your friend? – For the discounted price – Yes!

  • Orange tease is better amongst the two, but I dont fathom the price.
