Lakme Absolute Plum & Shine 3D Lip Gloss in Orchid Shine || Review and Swatches

Hi All

Today I will be reviewing my first product from Lakme. I know it would come as a surprise that having been lived in India all my life I have never used any Lakme makeup. When I was little my mother used to buy Lakme moisturizers every winter, but I never liked them as they made me very oily. I also tried their face washes I found them to be very drying for my skin. I was never impressed by their old makeup range anyways. That mental block kept me from trying their new ranges. My mother-in-law bought Lakme Absolute Plum & Shine 3D Lip Gloss in Orchid Shine and that is when I got to try the product for myself and I must say I am impressed.

I think:

Orchid Shine is a beautiful dusty rose color which is perfect for all ages, skin tones and skin colors. The reason I say all ages is that my mother-in-law who does not wear or own a lot of makeup, loves this color. It is a perfect lip gloss for work, even if your workplace is conservative. This lip color does not demand attention but brings attention to your face. Just applying this lip gloss brings the face alive. The color has a lovely warm undertone which makes it wearable for anyone at anytime of the day.

The formula of this lip gloss is beautiful. It is buttery and creamy. There is no shimmer to it but has a glossy shine. It applies very smoothly and evenly. For my lips I have to take the product out twice, which makes me think that I would end up using the gloss quiet quickly. The color fades away slightly after around 30 min and does not remain as vibrant as when you first apply it.  The color stays for around 4+ hours without eating or drinking, but needs touch up after a meal. It is also very hydrating on the lips and sometimes causes gooey deposition around the inner lines like some lip balms do. It has good color payoff and is quiet opaque. The gloss is transferable but is does not feather out. Since it is a lip plumper too, it causes a slight burning sensation on the lips which goes away in a few seconds. The burning sensation is very slight and very bearable which is great for a lip plumper.
