Lakme Absolute Lip Tint/Pout Matte Victorian Rose

Quick Review-

Crayon and matte deadly combination for me. I like crayon types lippies and if they are matte, it becomes a must have for me.

Price- Rs 650/-


I wanted to try this one from long and I ordered Victorian Rose online. I loved the name and I like rose pink red kind of color. Well I was not disappointed at all.

So let’s come to this particular color. It’s red…yes. It’s pink…yes. It’s coral…yes. It’s bright…yes. It’s beautiful …yes. Actually the color is true to its name Victorian Rose. It’s actually pink which is little red and color kind of.

It will go very well with almost all Indian skin tone. Formula is really matte so you need to apply a lip balm first if you have dry lips and it will look good on exfoliated lips.

Pigmentation is super good just one Swatch is enough and it stays on me for around 5-6 hrs.


Highly recommended

Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color in Rose Touch

QUICK REVIEW

When lakme launched it I fell in love with its packaging and when I swatched it I fell in love with its texture too.

Price- Rs 575/-

Lakme launched these as Lip and cheek color. Well as much this particular shade is concerned yes it does double duty very well. It’s such a wonderful color I use it as office wear shade and even team it with heavy smokey eye for party makeup.

It’s a wonderful and must have color to have. It’s muted mauve kind of color. And gives a powder matte finish. It’s not that proper dry matte type finish. And that’s why I am in love with its formula. This shade is perfect as blush too. A very little quantity is required to get that perfect flushed cheek.

I have medium complexion and slightly pigmented lips and it covers it very well. The shade is perfect for every skin tone.

Staying power is around 5-6 hours on my lips. 

Highly recommended

MY VIEW-

  • Technically this face mask is not ideal for me as I have dry skin and this is well suited for oily skin beauties.

  • As this face mask dry very quickly I don’t keep it for long.

  • It’s a clay based mask so excellent to remove oiliness from face.
  • It also gives tightening effect
  • Gives a good glow which stay for a day.

  • It takes good time to remove the face pack. Though its common with most of the clay based mask.
  • Its not a miracle face pack but what it promise is what it gives.

FINAL RESULT-

DSC02911 DSC02913 DSC02916

MY VIEW-

  • As mentioned on its packaging that it gives little tint to lips but may be other variant this one doesn’t give any tint. It’s either nude or little pale yellowish kind of peach tint which is almost invisible.
  • It swipes on lips very smoothly
  • Gives a boost of instant moisturisation
  • But moisturisation doesn’t stay long on my super dry lips 2-3 hrs only.
  • As a base its very nice lip balm as it pigmentation is very poor so for moisturisation you can use it beneath your lipstick or lip gloss
  • Packaging is lipstick like very girly, catchy and sturdy
  • It has got SPF 15

RECOMMENDATION-

If you have naturally pink lips you can go ahead as much I am concerned I will try other variants.

Lakme CC Complexion Care Cream

It’s my first CC cream. I have tried many BB cream before. For daily use I am not comfortable in using foundation but I want any tinted thing for that perfect look. Thanks to the series of BB and CC cream launched in India in recent years. When last year Lakme launched CC cream I purchased that time only. SA suggested me to go for Beige but its little lighter for my skin, the other shade bronze was little darker. That time I was confused I went ahead with Beige.

Its creamy medium to thick consistency with typical Lakme fragrance

IMG_20141210_091944 IMG_20141210_091959 IMG_20141210_092010

MY VIEW-

  • It’s like everyday foundation for me.
  • Its very light as comparison to foundation in consistency
  • In coverage its really good but you cant compare it with heavy duty foundation.
  • I have dry skin, this product alone is not sufficient. You must have a moisturiser beneath.
  • A little is required for coverage if you are using it as foundation
  • It gives medium and uniform coverage
  • It gives matte look. My experience with BB cream is little dewy. In personal I like matte look so I really like it.
  • Spreads smoothly and feels very soft on skin
  • Contains SPF 20

RECOMMENDATION-

If you want to have a daily foundation kind of think you should go ahead

OVERALL RATING-

I don’t know when this Aquashine range launched. I came to know about it in 2012 June when I got one of the shade as gift in my wedding vanity box. I have already reviewed that shade here.

DSC02707 DSC02716

MY VIEW-

  • The new packaging looks very techno kind of earlier it was very monotonous kind of same shade.
  • Twist up mechanism is good but you might end up wasting a lot of product so be careful.
  • And I really love the small small dots on top of sponge. I know stupid me.
  • Color is super gorgeous not very loud brighten up your face I got lots of compliment for this shade.
  • You can use it for any occasion on any dress…at any time..with any makeup…such a versatile color
  • It’s glossy in finish and hydrating. That means you don’t need any lip balm beneath.
  • Staying power is 3-4 hrs on me without any meal
  • It’s not sticky like the Truffle shade which I have reviewed earlier here. May be they have changed the formula again. Good!!!

Lakme Sun Expert UV lotion SPF 50

What else we can want in this hot summer weather a good sunscreen right…Well problem with me is that I can be happy with every product except sunscreen my demand is really high… it’s one of the sunscreen I tried this summer…

DSC02442 DSC02443 DSC02444

PRODUCT NAME-

Lakme Sun Expert UV lotion SPF 50 (for normal to dry skin)

PRODUCT PRICE –

Rs 99/- for 15ml

MY VIEW-

This product is for normal to dry skin so a perfect match for me. I wanted to try the sample first. My job consist of lots of travelling so I need a sunscreen with good result and which doesn’t make me sweat or bring oiliness. When I applied it on my face I felt little whitish cast on my face but I kept on massaging it on my face and to my wonder after some time skin was back to normal. It gave some shine to my face but it was looking good. Now coming to the main thing sun protection yes it did that too. Isn’t it great. But the only con which I find in this is heaviness. I feel it little heavy on my face may be it meant for dry skin that’s why. Other than this I don’t have any complain.

RECOMMENDATION-

Yes I will surely recommend this to all dry skin beauties.
