Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick P168
Lakme has recently revamped their lipstick range and launched the Lakme Enrich Satin Lipsticks priced at Rs. 260 which got me thinking to try them out and experience the results. So i wasted no time and picked a beautiful shade P168, eh?? you must be thinking what kind of a name that is. Well ladies that is the name of the shade, but this is the high time Lakme should think about naming their lipsticks, there is a tough competition out there specially when brands are coming up with the new launches every now and then. I would really like to name this shade..well..i should stop now and jump to the review. Let’s see how this one fares.
MRP: Rs. 260
Packaging: Beautiful transparent case, with the name of the shade written at the bottom. You can see the shade color from the top to identify it easily. The lipstick has Lakme engraved at the top, i loved the overall packaging.
Color: Lakme Erich Satin lipstick P168 is a lovely shade of dark pink but more inclined towards the purple. You can say it is a mix of pink and purple. This color would suit all the skin tones.
Texture/Formula: The texture is oh so smooth, it has a buttery texture and glides dreamily on the lips. The formula is non drying and keeps the lips hydrated. The minor gripe is that the color transfers on cups and glasses.
Application: The smooth and buttery texture is ideal for application. You don’t even need to prepare your lips before application, it doesn’t highlight dryness on Lips and neither it settles into lip lines.
Pigmentation: It provides good color coverage in single swipe, Lakme has truly worked on mostly all aspects for this range. You can build up the color in multiple swipes and it will not look patchy at all. Intensity of the color can be controlled.
Longevity: It stayed on me for 4-5 hours including meals and tea in between and then leaves a hint of beautiful pink color behind. Considering the price range the wear time is very good.
Removal: Easily removable with a cleanser or a makeup remover.
Staining: The bad part is that it stains the lips, not heavily but it does stain.
- Nice and trendy packaging.
- The range has variety of colors to choose from.
- Texture is buttery smooth.
- It does not dry the lips.
- Formula is ideal for application.
- Does not highlight the dryness.
- It does not settles into the lip lines.
- Keeps the lips hydrated.
- Enriched with Olive oil and vitamin E.
- Very good pigmentation.
- Good wear time considering the price.
- Transfers on cups and glasses.
- Stains the lips.
- Wear time can be a issue for some, but considering the price range it should not be an issue. Within this much of price we are getting a really good product.
My Verdict: I applaud Lakme India for revamping and launching these Lakme Enrich Satin Lipsticks. They have amazing texture, good color payoff, variety of shades and very affordable.
