I am one among those and if you are also one of my kind, then it’s time for you to try this out. Lakme has introduced a lip shimmer for the first time in the form of “Lakme absolute illuminating lip shimmer”.

Basic Info about Lakme Absolute Illuminating Lip Shimmer Bronze Flake

Product description-

This is a crème lipstick that delivers you rich, reflective shimmer finish to your lips.

Price- it is priced at Rs. 700.00 for a net weight of 3.6 grams. I recently saw it be priced at Rs. 420 in, they are giving a forty percent discount to it.

Expiry- The expiry date is of two years from the date of manufacture.

Packaging– The lipstick comes in a black cardboard box. All the details regarding the product are mentioned on it except for that of the ingredients been used in it. Still, there is no need to worry, since, it is a branded product and not at all harmful. Like all the lipsticks, the shade name is mentioned at the bottom of the lipstick twister. The product inside the box, the twister, is also seen in charcoal black color with some transparent look on the top.

How to use- Unpack the lipstick from the cardboard box and twist the lower part of the lipstick. The mass emerges out. You can twist it counter- clockwise to get the lipstick back to its initial. The caps shuts with a light press on it.

Fragrance- it has a mild fragrance but that is not something which is to be bothered.

Color- As the company promises, the shade is an exact bronze flake shade.

Staying power- The staying power is approximately up to five to six hours.

My experience with Lakme Absolute Illuminating Lip Shimmer Bronze Flake

What I felt is that among all the different varieties of illuminating lip shimmers Lakme is offering, this has got a little color but all its shimmer catches the attention. Also, this doesn’t affect the base color of the lipstick you have applied.

It is preferable to use a single stroke of it for minimum shimmer and two applies for immense shimmer effect. This suits people of any age. This can be applied without any base color on your lips as well. If you bother about the natural color of your lips but want to add a shimmery tinge, you can undoubtedly choose to wear this product.

Overall Performance of Lakme Absolute Illuminating Lip Shimmer Bronze Flake


  • High base color
  • Nice shimmer finish
  • Glossy on lips due to the shimmer particles
  • Soft in texture
  • Doesn’t feel heavy on application
  • The color is Easy to remove from your lips, i.e. it doesn’t affect your lip texture, doesn’t crack your lips out after removal


  • The shimmery particles are too shimmery and they often spread out in case you put your fingers through it
  • The shade fades out to some extent after meal and needs touch up


The product can be used as a lip moisturizer as well. It hides the pigmentation of lips. You may see that the lipstick color may fade away a little when you finish having your meal. The shimmer particles are seen more prominently when the color fades out of your lips.

Would I recommend?

Decent shades like these are to be preferred if you do not like the popping and neon shades in trend now. This is used more and suits mature women the best. This suits people of any skin-tone. Sexy, kissable lips are all yours to have this season with this ‘Bronze Flake Absolute Illuminating Lip Shimmer’ from Lakme.
