I am going to share one of the gorgeous ruby red lipstick form Lakme’s New Illuminating collection.I am not a huge fan of shimmer in my makeup but as the shade Ruby Glimmer is festive , deep ruby red shimmer in the formula adds festive finish of the lipstick formula. I have also bought Scarlet magic- bright red lipstick from this range which I will be sharing soon on blog.I have used this lipstick in Soft Engagement Makeup Tutorial Video also.

Lakme Absolute Illuminating Lip Shimmer Ruby Glimmer Review
Lakme Absolute Illuminating Lip Shimmer is slant top lipstick bullet which is packaged in sleek glazed black packaging with swivel up mechanism. Lakme has stylized this new range with translucent black backdrop that adds professional touch to the packaging. Lid shuts tight and sleek size is travel friendly.
Ruby glimmer is beautiful magenta toned red lipstick that is loaded with fine multicolored /gold shimmer.This shade will look pretty on all skin complexions.Luxurious rich ruby red with reflective shimmer makes it an ideal pick for bridal wear and festivities. Shimmer is not gritty or chunky rather very fine and adds to the creamy glossy finish of the lipstick. It is a glamorous red lip color with shimmer that dazzles up lips for party wear!!
Ruby glimmer has buttery creamy texture that rolls on lips smoothly. Unlike some shimmer lipsticks, Ruby glimmer does not feel gritty rough on lips rather applies silky soft.It swipes tug free on lips giving uniform cover of vivid ruby red color in single stroke. I usually apply these rich colors with a lip liner brush to avoid messing up my makeup. Shimmer in the formula spreads evenly with the lipstick pigments. It does not settle in fine lips lines during course of wear nor it migrates all over face once the lipstick starts fading.
Formula is mildly fragrant which is non bothering and is felt for second while applying.As far as the pigment part is concerned,color does transfer but does not bleed on lips as such. But these days with humidity and heat, I tend to sweat ,most in my upper lip area. Ruby glimmer buttery formula melts away and I ended up with red smears on my chin/cheeks. It stays on my lips for 4-5hours without feathering or creasing with no meals in air-conditoned atmosphere . I loose the color almost completely with full meal.It disappears evenly and shimmer does gain prominence on lips once the pigment fades.
VANILLA RATINGS 8.5/10
Lakme Absolute Illuminating Lip Shimmer range is shimmer based lipsticks . The whole palette has 15 bright vivid shades of Reds and Pinks!! Shades and formula shouts festivities especially when I put the lip colors next to Indian Traditional Outfits. Lipstick shades will compliment Bridal outfits with lovely gold-multicolored shimmers. These are definitely not for matte lips lovers. Ruby Glimmers is lovely pink tones red that will suit all skin complexions. Shade is beautiful and does not look garish with shimmer. Formula applies smooth and does not look patchy . But formula gives away to heat and tends to smear/feather. Highly recommend for Bridal wear/ festival wear!!
