My Experience with Lakme Absolute Gloss Stylist – Burgundy Burn:-
Burgundy Burn is a dark berry pink shade with faint red undertones and slight gold shimmers. It shade as the name might suggest ( no burgundy tones) but a gorgeous pinkish berry shade which turns out even more beautiful on lips. It is a shimmery gloss but the specks are extremely fine, in the size equivalent to shimmers found in eye shadows which doesn’t feel chunky or gritty. They blended well into the formula and imparts a gleaming shine to lips without giving that sparkling glittery look.
The gloss has light creamy texture which doesn’t feel sticky and gets applied in a thin layer on lips. I can press my lips together and they would separate nicely, distributing the color evenly and without creating any lip lines.The formula is amazingly pigmented and gives rich color coverage in single swipe and can be built nearly opaque (90%) with 2 more swipes (not absolutely opaque but it is a lip gloss after all). Needn’t worry about the gloss being turned to a gloopy hell as it wont :). The formula is nearer to a lip cream than a lip gloss and gives good enough coverage on pigmented lips too.
It imparts a super glossy shine to lips which lasts easily for 4-5 hours (fades slightly though but still very glossy) with snacks in between. It smears slightly around the lips but leaves a beautiful pink stain on lips after full meals, The long lasting formula, glossy shine and pink stain was quite a surprise as I didn’t expected all of this from a gloss and along with all this it kept my lips decently hydrated for all the time it was on them.

Cons of Lakme Absolute Gloss Stylist – Burgundy Burn:
- Bit pricey but the quality is great too
- Smears slightly post meals
Recommendation: Lakme Absolute Gloss Stylist in Burgundy Burn is a beautiful berry pink shade with finely milled golden shimmers for dazzling glossy shine. It has non-sticky texture, with supremely glossy shine and richly pigmented formula which gives almost opaque coverage. I was super happy happy with its long lasting formula and the hydration it provided to my lips. The flat sponged tip applicators offers easy application and I can apply layers of it and still wouldn’t feel heavy on lips. It leaves a pink stain behind which doesn’t gives me that “it’s completely gone” feel. It will suit almost all skin tones alike, might look a bit pinker on fairer skin tones but you are definitely on the frequency of receiving compliments with this on (yeah its The Secret effect).
Overall, I am happy that tried this lip gloss but would have loved it even more if it had been priced affordably and I didn’t had to think twice before investing. Highly Recommended for all the gloss lovers out there.
