The Lakme Absolute Glosses come in a round cylindrical tube with a metallic cap.Since the tube is clear you can easily identify the shade and check out the remaining product. It comes with a small doe foot applicator and I have to dip it a couple of times before getting adequate product. Barring that aspect I quite like the fuss free and simplistic packaging.
Lakme Absolute Candy Shine Gloss is a beautiful and chirpy pink which makes me feel good every time I apply it. Its also my favorite shade when I’m in doubt and goes with all of my outfits. It does contain golden shimmer which to be really honest I’m not fond of! But it isn’t gritty or OTT. The shade will suit light to medium skintone but might be too sheer for dusky skintones!
These glosses have a thick texture which is quite moisturizing and do not settle into fine lines. The Lakme Absolute Plump & Shine glosses do have a slightly sticky texture but they don’t feel uncomfortable or make your hair stick to it! Also, this does not sting the lips but does give a fuller appearance to the pout!
They are sheer glosses which can be built up to give decent coverage in 2 coats. However, you cannot expect it to hide pigmentation of lips and give an opaque coverage like a lipstick! I’m quite fond of the buildable pigmentation making it possible for me to play around with the wash of color on my lips!
Lakme claims that the glosses last upto 6hrs and sadly it doesn’t live upto that tall claim. That said, it does last a good amount of time for a gloss and stays put for about 3-4 hours on me. The lasting power is more if I don’t eat or drink anything in between which is well impossible!
1) A beautiful fuchsia pink which can be worn just about everyday!
2) Sheer pigmentation which is buildable
3) Moisturizing texture which does not feel uncomfortable
4) Has a decent staying power and lasts a good amount of time
5) Gives a fuller more luscious appearance to the lips
6) Affordable and does not burn a hole in the pocket
1) Slight sticky in texture
2) Contains fine gold shimmer which might bother some
HBM Recommendation: Lakme Absolute Candy Shine Gloss is a girly pink lip gloss with fine gold shimmer. Its a beautiful and a very easy shade to carry . The Plump & Shine Gloss has a great staying power while being quite affordable! The only con is the slightly sticky texture but honestly it does not bother me as it feels very comfortable on the lips. I recommend it if you’re looking for a pretty pink lip color for everyday wear and do not mind some shimmer!.
