If I had to choose one thing in makeup, that'll be lipstick. It is an essential for me and today's post is all about Argan Oil Lipsticks from Lakme Absolute. From past few days, I am all into Lakme Argan Oil Range. πŸ˜ƒ I shared my views on their Foundation, Creme, Serum and now it is time for Lipsticks. 😍 Let's get into details.

REVIEW

Packaging: I am in Love with the packaging. The sleek, long, sleek, luxurious golden packaging, is really attractive. The body is not transparent so you will have to always see shade name first which is on the bottom of lipstick.

Fragrance: There is a basic Lipstick kind of smell with a hint of mild sweetness of argan oil in it. It is not heavy or bothering. Doesn't even feels like it has fragrance until you bring it that close to your nose. πŸ˜ƒ Along with the default smell, each variant has its own kind of kick in it.

My Experience

Easy to Apply Lipstick Tip

What I love most about these lipsticks is the diameter of the lip color tip. Like it is not like basic lipsticks with pearl or oval shapes which I find bit tough to apply. The size of the tip being flat is just so perfect for application. Perfect for my lips. I used to apply lip colors with a brush but this is the first time I can apply a lipstick directly. πŸ˜„

Doesn't Glides Easily on Lips

This is an argan oil lipstick so I expected the formula to be soft but to my surprise, it doesn't glide easily on lips. You definitely need a lip balm prior to it for an easy application. 


Semi-Matte Look, I love it!

Well, this is good for me. I don't like those super matte or super glossy lip colors. Neither this is super glossy nor super matte. It is something which I like to wear. Within few seconds of application, it goes into its matte mode and gives a look like it is natural lip color

Not Much Moisturizing, but Okay!

Well, it claims to be moisturizing lipstick but I don't feel it is much of moisturizing. After few minutes I can feel my lips a bit dry. Like something on my lips. Not that it will make you feel uncomfortable or something. Neither it will dry your lips. Just the formulation is not nourishing. I didn't feel like there is nothing on my lips. I am totally okay with this as I hardly notice that feeling. But because it is an argan oil lip color, I expected this to be that soft and nourishing. 


Good staying Power but Transferable

It stayed on my lips for hours and hours but will get fade off as soon as you will eat or drink something. It is not transfer-proof. But only upper layers get faded off. It leaves a natural tint behind and makes you feel like this is your own natural lip color.

Daily Use Decent Lip Colors

Honestly, I got the best shades ever in this range. The thing is no matter how dark or mild the colors may look, the single coat of lip color just makes the day. If I want light, I go for one coat. If I want bit dark, I go for multiple coats. It is like I have my own set of mild and dark colors. I thought that dark cocoa colors may not look good on me but I love how one coat of it just makes my face full of life without being too odd or over. You can easily wear them daily to your college, office, or evening outing and it won't look over at all. 



SWATCHES

Now here are the swatches of some of the lip colors I own from this range. The colors you will see are 2-3 coats. The single coat is very mild and light which I like but to show the exact color I added more than one coat. 

From Top to Bottom - Rosy Lips, Mauve Silk, Crimson Town, Rich Cocoa, and Rouge Love.
