Lakme Absolute Lip Sync 6 in 1 Travel Kit Review & Swatches

This had to be done well before as I had bought this quite a few months back. Lakme' India has come up with its luxury makeup line- Absolute about a year ago and it has instantly become a hit with girls. This was the first product I tried from the range apart from a matte lipstick which I bought much later.
Price: ₹875 (€12.34 approx.)
Packaging: The palette from the top looks fabulous with the silver coloured Absolute monogram engrave on sheer black. Like any lip palette the kit comes with 6 different shades filled in round holes or spaces. There is a place to keep the 2 sided lip brush. The inner side of the cover holds the mirror.

 Description Details:The 6 different shades of this kit are claimed to be suitable for both day and night makeup looks.There are 4 regular colours and 2 with shimmery agents.Starting from the 1st from left is a dark coral shade that can almost pass by a berry tone. The second one is an absolute brown colour. The 3rd one is a shimmery apricot. The 4th is a mauve with pink undertones. The 5th is a pure plum and the 6th a shimmery pink.

My Take: I absolutely adore the 1st,3rd and 6th colour from top left.( I am a pink and coral lover) The least used one for me is the 2nd colour. Browns are such a turn-off for me. The mauves are just ok with me, nothing to boast about.What I love about the palette is that they have almost all the shades suitable for South Asian complexion. It can really suffice day to day makeup needs. The palette can be described as a Neutral one and can be carried to day time outings, travelling and even to work. The fill-ins are enough to last for a long time.The shades don't fade away easily and have somewhat decent staying power. The colours are not very bright and is not suitable if you are looking for pop or statement lips. It is fit for understated and soft makeup looks. The brush being dual ended is quite versatile and useful.

1.The price is quite reasonable considered  you are getting 6 high quality lip shades
2.Great to carry for office and if travelling anywhere.
3.Amazing for quick fix and retouches
4.Pleasant colours
5.Dual ended brush

1.The colours are too neutral
2.Not satisfied with the brush quality
3.As it is meant for night also, there should have been a brighter shade

Suggestions:The palette is a must-have for girls who love to keep it simple and don't like being loud or in favour of too brightly done looks. Lakme should come up with a bright palette too consisting more of pop shades like fuchsia, bright pinks and tangerines.
