Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Lip Colour – Smooth Merlot

Hi Everyone! Today i’ll reviewing the brand new Argan Oil lip colour by Lakme Absolut launched during Lakme Fashion Week 2017! When a lipstick is infused with the power of Argan oil, I had to get my hands on it. I decided to try on the shade “Smooth Merlot” and bought it from

I think Lakme as a brand has definitely revolutionised the Indian market and it’s great to see how they evolve each season to bring the best of cosmetics to the market.


Coming to the product review, lets start with:

Price: Rs.750/- (Slightly high)

  • Packaging: The lipstick comes in a black cardboard package with a detailed description. The actual lipstick is in a shiny metallic gold tube which locks when you click to the close it. Kudos to the packaging, its classy and convenient
  • Color: I was expecting it to be more on maroon side, but it has a strong brick shade which is also quite good
  • Fragrance: A not-so-strong vanilla fragrance that lasts for quite sometime


  • Texture: Now, I have slightly dry lips so I have the habit of applying vaseline or lip balm before using any lipstick. However, for this I decided to skip the step and directly applied my smooth merlot.
    It has a smooth & creamy texture and leaves you with a glossy finish. It needs at least 2-3 coats of application so pigmentation is almost good enough. I wore it for a lunch event and it lasted me for 2 hours. It leaves a slight red stain, so I did apply another coat. But all this while, I never felt like my lips are becoming dry or chapped. Rather, it was moiturised throughout.


To sum up, Lakme Absolut Argan Oil Lip colour is a nourishing lipstick that lasts up to 2-3 hours. It does not make your lips patchy and it can be easily worn without lip balm/moisturisers. The price is slightly high, but if you are looking for a deep moisturising lipstick, then it’s a must try.
