Love It Or Shove It: Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict Desert Rose Lipstick

Hello Beautiful,

How many times it happens with you that you see a gorgeous lip shade and that too “Coral Pink” and you just feel like buying it there and then.. ;). I fall in the trap of these pretty corals shades all the time !!

Guess Who Am I - Lipstick Shade

Something similar happened when I saw this beautiful coral pink from Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict Lipstick Collection.. I knew I just had to have this beauty in my makeup bag no matter what.. so I went ahead and bought it πŸ˜‰ but did it win my heart?

Well, somewhat but not exactly.. I so wanted to love this lipstick but guess the formula is not as good as the shade itself. It is indeed glossy and creamy smooth but it doesn’t provide complete coverage to my pigmented lips which was a major disappointment πŸ™ . I could have still tried to work it out but the texture seems to catch on the lip imperfections and settles in fine lines ( just like a matte formula) making it absolutely necessary to scrub and moisturise lips before application :P.

Also, at Rs 800 for this lipstick I would have preferred investing in those colorful Bourjois Lipstick πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Have you tried Lakme Gloss Addict Lipsticks? Which is your favorite brand for glossy lipsticks?

    Eee settles in fine lines and not even enough pigmented, I better skip it, I was never tempted to these lippies bcoz I can’t stand glossy formula on my lips, I’m a matte girl so I didn’t pick any of these.

      I have moving a little towards the glossy formula but this just bitter my taste for that.. πŸ˜› ..

      Glad you skipped it isnt worth investing!! πŸ™‚

      Same here.. Actually i was never a fan of Lakme even in my naive days of makeup love.. πŸ˜›

      True that.. Maybelline, Colorbar and all other drugstores have so much better to offer.. πŸ˜€

    The shade is pretty but investing 800 bucks for a lakme lipstick sounds toooo much !

      The color blinded me for a moment and I went ahead with my purchase.. Next time I better control such temptations.. πŸ˜›

    It sucks that lakme can’t give us products worth the money and the hype.

    Lakme now has some of the most cheaply made products now! The brand is dying

    • poonamOctober 12, 2014 at 9:11 AM - Reply

      hhaha.. At this price nobody will expect such quality .. Lakme either has to keep up with quality or reduce prices.. πŸ˜›
