Red is one shade that absolutely uplifts our dullest of the dull mood and gives us a quirky look in seconds. It is the colour of life, love and passion. Today I am reviewing the Lakme Absolute Crème Lipstick – Runway Red from the Royal Collection). It you buy this lipstick online, it will cost somewhere between INR 500 – INR 600.
Enriched with Vitamin E and Wheat germ oil this rich creme stick keeps your lips supple, silky, and smooth. The ‘Runway Red’ shade is a classic shade and this is a must have for all the festive freaks and year-ender parties. It does give a very shiny/glossy look; rather it has an almost matte finish. Though after a couple of hours, it might feel quite glossy. To avoid this, you may first dab a little bit of foundation on your lips, and then apply the lip color. This trick will help you have a long lasting coat.
The lipstick does a good job of moisturizing the lips keeping it hydrated for a good 3-4 hours. It is a must have for people with extra dry lips and prone to cracking. The lipstick weighs 3.2 grams, and for an average user it will easily last for a couple pf months.
Other shades that I liked from the range were Eternal Wine, Plum Forever, Deep Blush, Sheer Berry and Royal Rouge. Out of all the available shades in the collection, except Caramel Kiss and Runway Red, the rest of the shades belongs to the same family – Pink, lilacs, mauves.
This product is available on all prominent e-commerce portals and leading departmental stores across the country. It comes in a shiny silver cylinder with a slightly blackish tinge. For the price that the user pays for the product, it a fairly good buy in terms of benefits.
