Lakme Gloss Addict Rustic Red lipstick comes in a gray, gunmetal tube that has a reflective finish. The cap is transparent and tends to get loose with time. I really like the packaging of this lipstick. It feels really premium, polished and sturdy.
The texture of Lakme Gloss Addict Rustic Red is absolutely amazing. It’s buttery smooth and glides like a dream, giving a beautiful feel to the lips. The lipstick covers the pigmentation of the lips in just one swipe. Yes, just ONE SWIPE!
Rustic Red is one of the most intense shades from this range and given an excellent coverage. You get an opaque coverage in just one swipe. Believe me; it is one of the most pigmented lipsticks I’ve ever used. And despite being so soft, it does not bleed. Neither does it get patchy when you layer it.
Rustic Red does not have watery like finish. It has a crème finish, which makes this shade the winner in this range. And the fragrance is yummy. It smells like vanilla to me. I’d give it a full 5/5 on the texture front.
As compared to most of the glossy lipsticks, Lakme Gloss Addict Rustic Red has a surprisingly good staying power. It stays for a good 3 hours, which is quite good for a glossy lipstick. It does transfer a bit to cups and glasses, but the color does not fade entirely. The lipstick even leaves a stain behind, which stays for quite a long time. But I really don’t mind the low staying power, considering the texture is so good. I wouldn’t mind applying it over and over again.
The shade, Rustic Red, is one of the trickiest shades I’ve ever tried. It looks go gorgeous in the bullet and on the swatch, but takes an unexpected turn on the lips. I had actually purchased this lipstick online, after reading a couple of reviews and presumed that this shade would look good one me. (I have a medium skin tone). But it didn’t. It is suitable only for fair or light skinned women.
As I mentioned above, it looks great on the swatch, but takes a reddish orange color on the lip. The color starts looking horrid as you layer it. Since I love this lipstick for its formula and pigmentation, I did not have the heart to discard it. So I came up with a brilliant idea. I applied the lipstick liberally on the lips, placed a tissue paper against the lips and blotted it with some color. Voila! It acquired a beautiful, matte finish and a toned down color, which way better that the original on me.
Pros Of Lakme Gloss Addict Rustic Red:
- Excellent formula
- Rich in pigment
- Last long for a glossy lipstick
- Smooth and creamy
Cons Of Lakme Gloss Addict Rustic Red:
- Tricky shade
Live It Beautiful Rating: 4/5 (Deducting one mark for shade)
As much I love this lipstick for its texture and pigmentation, I hate it for its shade. I haven’t actually tried another lipstick from this range, but I presume that the texture of all the Gloss Addict lipsticks will be as good as this one. I really love this lipstick for its quality. Liking a shade or not is a personal preference. The shade does not suit me, but that doesn’t mean it won’t suit anyone. I’d personally recommend it to women with lighter skin tone.
