Lakme Absolute Lip Last in Day Love: Swatches, Review.

I have an obsession with anything that clicks, pops, or snaps. Its like when bubble wrap is in front of me, I have this zombi-esque expression on my face, i gaze into thin air going *pop*pop*pop* and i can do that till  i grow white hair. Those old style ball pens with the click mechanism were like a drug to my obsession. I swear i can click like more than a thousand times a minute with those –  I did  it so often  that my cubicle neighbour at work literally had to snatch it away for me!!! So you can imagine the thrill i get with these clickable lipstick pens like Lakme Absolute Lip Last which I have in the shade Day Love . Its kind of like sketch pens for adults I think!!!!

Lakme claims One stroke is all it takes to lock color and moisture. This matte lip color delivers deep tone and keeps your lips looking luscious and feeling supple for up to 16 hours. Comes with unique brush for smooth and even application.  Lakme Absolute Lip Last Up to 16 hours.

  • Super long wear.
  • High color pay-off.
  • Transfer resistant.

 Shade Day Love: The color

Day Love is a pretty, soft peachy pink that will work best on lighter to  medium skin tones  . It might wash out skin tones that are much darker, so you should test it out in the store. It has these little silver shimmer specks inside which look more obvious on camera than they are in real life , but it makes me feel it really should be named night love (but then night love is kind of eww sounding don’t you think- gives me a sleazy image..night.love.!!). The color is really quite  pretty and perfect for spring, very english rose, very young and PYT, very “innocence personified”   and if there were a regular lipstick in this shade i would snap it up in a second.

General Thoughts on Lakme Absolute Lip Last Upto  16hr

First on to the good stuff. What is  nice about this is the super sleek look, easy application and weightless light feel and that it doesnt dry your lips out excessively (you have to remember its a matte lipstick so you need some lip balm always with those) .It lives up to its claim of being transfer resistant, so your boyfriends lips wont get peachy pink if you kiss him with this on, so thank god for that.  If you are someone who doesnt need extra pigmentation, and prefers light lip colors in pretty shades then might like this lip last.

Now on to the not so good-.

  • First of all- Packaging & Pigmentation. Maybe i got a bad piece but i have to click at least 50 times to get significant product out . The stuff that comes out after 5 clicks is just not enough to coat your lips decently (or maybe i just have big lips-imagine what Angelina Jolie would go through!) . After five to ten clicks what I get is this watery, semi sheer color almost like a lip gloss. I am not sure whether this is a technical glitch, or this is how it is supposed to be, but if it is … then that “pigmented”claim can be totally wiped off!!!
  • Secondly, the shimmer doesn’t stay in place and i did find silver shimmer stuck to my nose (thank god it didn’t travel to my eyebrows  - *I am a disco dancer* ) . ‘
  • Thirdly- if you do manage to get too much out (which is rare, because most times you are clicking in the hope of more pigment), the otherwise smooth application becomes streaky.
  • Does it last? Well sort of…I mean i got about 5 hours of wear with this but it was no way near 16 hours (i don’t even want 16 hours, i am happy with 4-5 but then I have to judge you with what you claim right).

 

 

Verdict: C or 2/5

Product:3/5, Pigmentation:2.5/5, Texture: 4/5, Longevity:3/5, Packaging & Value: 2/5

Price: Rs 575/-

Recommendation: Lakme Absolute Lip Last  in Day love is a  pretty peachy pink with bits of silver shimmer that will really flatter light to medium skintones. The lip last is smooth to apply, weightless in feel and doesnt dry out the lips excessively. However, it really tests your patience (you need to click like 50 times to get any product out), i only got lip gloss like pigmentation with this, and overall was dissapointed in terms of just the overall product, pigmentation, shimmer bits and streakyness. Definitely no competition to Chambor Flowing Lipsticks which are far superior in quality.

My sole reason for wanting to try these out is the “click”!! :p

I like the shade. Though shimmer migrating on the face is big turn off for me but just for the price it is coming for I might try this!

nice post mehak I tried this on at the store but it did dry my lips out maybe because I wasn’t wearing a lip balm that day!

mehak April 11, 2012 at 11:16 am

Yeah, the thing is like..its a matte lip color , so if i compare it to other matte lip colors it doesnt dry out the lips, but yup you might want a lip balm underneath!

:) Nice post………and the color looks so promising……But I usually avoid everything that has shimmers

Yeah me too, the shimmer here isnt too obvious, but like it gets all around your face,

Ah, it’s a pity! I would have really liked a genuinely long-lasting lip color from Lakme :(
Chambor flowing lipstick, you say? I got one of those in an enormous Chambor hamper I won in a valentine’s day contest :) But it’s a very dark plum colour so I passed it on to my mum who’s very happy with it.

its a pretty shade..but I can see specks of glitter around your lips. I’d be too conscious and keep checking for that if I had this. Seems like a no buy for me.

i had been waiting for this review since the time the product was launched.so thanks a lot for the great review!!

i love glosses and creamy lippies but find it difficult to work with the matte ones as they emphasizeall the imperfections…and i really thot this was a gloss (and a long lasting one!) and usedto get so tempted to pick it up.good i dint :P

prerna April 11, 2012 at 6:19 pm

Reply

mehak April 11, 2012 at 9:51 pm

Nah, unless glosses are matte, this one aint a gloss…but even i thought this was a gloss earlier!!! Its a no buy for me now though.. !

shalini June 15, 2012 at 12:14 pm

you didnt get a bad piece….i got two of them and my god what a regret I have wasting my money on them !!!

the lasting power was good no doubt but then u go on clicking endlessly and it actually tested my patience tht i got so fed up after using them 4 times i just disposed the damn things !!! no matter hw pretty the color the clicking just doesn’t work !!! Its insane !!!

the lipstick is now my 15 month old sons play thing :) ht goes on clicking on day long and the damn lipstick just doesnt come out !!!

Will NEVER EVER buy it !!!

Hi, me too have a very bad experience.. its very disappointing to click continuously nd nth come out. I hardly used one time, tried again but fed up to click continuously.

It is totally wastage of money.
