Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict Lipstick in Desert Rose : Photos, Review, Swatch & LOTD

Glossy, creamy, balmy lipsticks are my favorites and I am more comfortable wearing them than the super matte and drying ones ! When Lakme launched the gloss addict range I had to try at least one shade. Though I didn't have time to visit the Lakme counter directly there were heaps of reviews by my co-bloggers which helped me to select a shade online. Actually, the shades I wanted were not in stock and this shade 'Desert Rose' was my last choice. I was not sure about how it would look on me but still I went ahead and got one for myself.

The gloss addict comes with 2 layer packaging and my first thought was Lakme was trying to justify the price tag probably. It comes with a outer box and then a transparent cover inside which is the slim and sleek gloss addict lipstick. The transparent lid shows the shade of the lipstick. I picked up the shade 'Desert Rose' expecting it to be more warm but this looks like a neon coral shade in the tube and a bubblegum pink on my lips !! Pure surprise !!! I didn't have any hope that this would look nice on me but still I wanted to give a try. Let me talk a little about the formula first. 

The lipstick is super glossy and only with 3-4 swipes I could get some color on my lips. Definitely not a friend of pigmented lips. Lips look moisturized and surprisingly the color stays on my lips for 3 hours after which there remains a light stain for another couple of hours. The shade 'Desert Rose' is a very pretty bubble gum pink that would look great on light-medium skin tones. When I tried it on me it didn't look bad but definitely this is not a shade that I would reach for often.

The Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict lipsticks are for those light glossy lipstick lovers. The shades are gorgeous and the shade 'Desert Rose' is definitely a pretty shade but if you have pigmented lips like mine then it is better to try them out first before buying ! This particular shade 'Desert Rose' would look great on light to medium skin tones and surprisingly it didn't look bad on me ! Dry lips would love this range of lipsticks for sure.
