Lakme Absolute Pop Tint Swatches & Review: Candy Kiss

One of the guilty pleasures of apartment living, is that when i go to check my mailbox from the mailroom, i can take a quick peek into the kind of envelopes others are recieving. Okay fine i know, totally voyeuristic thing to do and by now yv dialed your security guard to ensure that a curly headed girl named Mehak never enters your apartments. But to my defense, i dont open anything or even touch anything i swear …i just take my mail out and my eyes just unconsciously seem to scan the room for something interesting. See, thats how i learnt about this exhibition in Delhi where i bought my sharara from, and oddly enough thats how i learnt about Lakme Pop Tints- it was stuck on top of a Cosmo magazine that my neighbour ordered !

Soon enough there was a Pop Tint Press note in my mailbox, and before you could say ‘Bazooka’  , Candy Kiss made its way to my door from . Candy Kiss is a peachy orange that goes on semi sheer- giving your lips a pretty, hydrated peach drenched look.  Its a color thats quite flattering on everyone, but those with very pigmented lips may prefer some fuller coverage options in the same range-Candy Kiss is more sheer than other pop tints.. I quite like this in summer actually- a quick slick  of this across your lips and you are good to go!

In terms of texture, these are nice and slick and go on smoothly, but i have to say they do have a tad bit of a waxy, kind of rubbery texture to them which i dont particularly love. Candy kiss will hydrate your lips but  one thing that you do need to note is that when they do leave your lips , they fade unevenly which is not really becoming, and they dont last beyond 3 hours either. That being said, they are an effortless everyday option…

Verdict: B

Price: 800/-

Recommendation: Lakme Absolute Pop Tints in Candy Kiss is a pretty peachy orange that goes on semi sheer  and keeps your lips looking drenched and feeling hydrated .Iv tried other Pop tints before, and Candy Kiss is definitely more sheer than the others but these are nice effortless everyday options in the summer. However  they don’t last long and they fade kind of unevenly which begs the question – Do you spend 800 rupees on this product??? I would probably look elsewhere.

Yeah too exp

lakme pop tints are just meh!


happygoluckygal July 7, 2013 at 2:21 pm

love the colour.. but for lakme product I guess the price is a serious let down..:(


Vani July 7, 2013 at 3:06 pm

The sales would have been 10 times higher if they were priced at around Rs.300 .. Except for big makeup enthusiasts, who would want to spend 800 bucks on a product that doesnt have anything to boast for?


mehak July 7, 2013 at 11:12 pm

agreed. for 800 it should either be supremely pigmented, or supremely long lasting…or supremly hydrating..this is kind of in the middle of everything


Sukanya July 7, 2013 at 3:28 pm

for 800 bucks i wont ever buy this !


leeb33 July 7, 2013 at 4:13 pm

the color is gorgeous on u but not worth the 800 bucks :(


Gowthami July 7, 2013 at 5:56 pm

price is too high for me but I like the tint it gives!!


Xuvious July 7, 2013 at 6:31 pm

I liked Orange Tease better though.
And I totally check what my neighbours have popping out of their boxes too. :p


mehak July 7, 2013 at 11:13 pm

Haha good to know im not the only one!


Shikha July 7, 2013 at 6:36 pm

nopes.. I have not bought these.. 800 bucks is a lot for Lakme… I would add some more bucks and get a lipstick


sneha vaid July 7, 2013 at 6:38 pm

shade is really very good..for price..ummmm…little expensive for lakme..


Vipra S July 7, 2013 at 6:43 pm

It’s a pretty shade.. Lip swatch is so adorable <3 .. I love Tint for their pigmentation:)


Maliha July 7, 2013 at 7:16 pm

I dont like its lid, I just wish they went for something a little more expensive looking considering the price. Something like the clinique chubby sticks’s lids maybe


mehak July 7, 2013 at 11:13 pm

Haha the lid…didnt give much thought to it till i read your comment but now that i think about it ..yeah…kind of tacky right


Niesha July 7, 2013 at 9:03 pm

I like this color but but the price is too much for the staying power it has. Wish it could have been a little cheaper. Nice review .:)


Atreyee July 7, 2013 at 9:50 pm

The colour looks very pretty on you. :)


Swati July 8, 2013 at 12:35 am

The colour is pretty but spending 800 on a product that is almost like a tinted lip balm is something that my senses say no to. Nice swatch though!


Heena July 8, 2013 at 1:08 am

Too Much Price For The Quality!

The Shade is Lovely Though!


deepti July 8, 2013 at 11:34 am

It luks like a dupe of revlon lip stain in ‘Rendezvous’, which has a great staying power.


priyanka July 8, 2013 at 7:07 pm

Beautiful shade however pricey one!


Mariyam September 11, 2015 at 11:44 am

Lakme lip tints have been raved everywhere but is kinda disappointing in terms of pigmentation and wear time. Quality does not match with the price!
