I’ve been using the products for a while now and Lakmé ABSOLUTE keeps my skin radiant and makes me look beautiful the whole day without the need of any touch-ups. Its long wear and high-performance products are just what I need.”

While speaking about the look and new products she says, “The look that Cory Walia showcased on me is something I would wear to a night do or for a brunch in the day. One of my favorite products is ABSOLUTE Lip Last with its precision brush and I’m totally hooked on to the Plump and Shine gloss for the range of sensational colors it offers, there is something for every occasion. As a face make-up the Two-Way compact is an extremely convenient product that doubles up as a powder and foundation and has sun filters, which protects my skin from the sun. I completely love the ABSOLUTE Mattreal mousse for daily wear as it’s extremely light and renders a natural glow to my skin while the ABSOLUTE Kohl Ultimate is perfect for the dramatic eyes like what you saw me wear during Kurbaan. ”

The looks from the Absolute cosmetic range are of international standard and akin to it is my creation for this season, which is hi-tech, high- fashion, sophisticated and contemporary.”

Kareena Kapoor said, “I have walked at LFW and for Manish before, but taking the stage as a Lakmé ABSOLUTE face at the Grand Finale is a different high. I loved the ABSOLUTE collection Manish created for me; his designs are trendsetters and enhance my style. Cory used the Kohl Ultimate to create my look and I absolutely love it. It’s very contemporary and something I could do for a meeting, a party, a romantic date-its versatility increases its appeal.”
