The product is packed in a metallic colored box with shade name mentioned at the back of the box. But the box doesn’t contain any detail of the ingredients.

My Experience with Lakme Absolute Hi-Definition Matte Lipstick
The lipstick totally justifies matte in its name as it gives complete matte finish. As it is highly pigmented in color therefore we can see the result in just one application. Its texture is very smooth and creamy. On 2-3 applications it stays well for 4-5 hours. I have two shades with me Marron Magic and Pink Me Up. Both the shades are color rich and go well with almost every outfit. Lakme Absolute Matte Lipstick has wide shade range and each shade differs from others. So it becomes easy to choose a shade as per the requirement.
Being a matte lipstick it tends to make lips dry so prepping lips before application is very important. Most noteworthy I will recommend using a lip balm before applying the lipstick. It is not suitable for cracked or chapped lips as the lipstick get stuck in the cracks. Moreover it is not creaseless and light weight. Furthermore on the 3rd application onwards it looks cakey on the lips. After 4hrs of application it begins to crack mainly from the corner of the lips.
If you are looking for a matte lipstick with 5-6hrs staying power than this is a good option. My experience with this lipstick was good. Therefore I will definitely try other shades of this range.
