Hi Lovelies !
Hope you all are doing good.
I am not a lover of bright tones like fuchsia but today I am going to review a lipstick which is bright pink in colour. The reason why I bought this lippie is only because I had the opportunity to swatch and try this colour on my lips ( the SA at Shopper’s Stop was too humble). I would have definitely missed on this one if I would have just swatched this shade on my hand.
Okay so, coming to the product. LAKME recently came up with this new avatar of their years old enrich satin lipstick range. I am sure you all too grew up looking at at least one such LAKME lipstick in our mommie’s makeup box.
Packaging wise, these look so much better than the old plum tubes. The transparent plastic case is not that durable though, but cant complain much at the price you pay. The shades have numbers and not names, just like the old lippies. However, since the case is transparent, you can see the colour from outside which makes it much easier to find and locate when kept with other shades.
Price: 260 INR
Quantity: 4.3 gms
Ingredients: Not mentioned anywhere
Shade: The shade is a gorgeous bright pink with blue undertones. This fuchsia will pep you up instantly. I love the fact how this shade can add so much of life to dull face. I realised this when I swatched it at the store, I was not having any makeup on and was dead tired roaming around, but this shade instantly brightened up my face. It will look good on most Indian skin tones. Even darker complexions can rock this shade.
Texture wise this lipstick is smooth and easy to apply
Colour pay off is too good and this one being semi matte does hydrate the lips. You definitely do not require any lip balm beneath and at the same time its not too glossy.
Coming to the staying power. I must say LAKME you win ! Honestly, the previous range did not have a good staying power, this was one of the reasons why I did not want to pick this lipstick up. But when I tried this shade it stayed for good 6 hours after which it started fading. It did leave behind a soft pink stain. I was surprised by the staying power.
It has the same sweet vanilla smell like the previous range, which actually makes me nostalgic.
The only thing I didn’t like about it is that if you apply it on very dry lips, it can make your lip flakey. It does fade unevenly if you have heavy oily meals. It does stand through light meals and snacks but heavy meals is an issue.
Summing up the Pros and Cons:
- Easily available
- Gorgeous bright pink shade
- Lifts up the face instantly
- Hydrating on lips
- Very economical
- Good staying power
- Smell is not bothering
- Dry lips can turn flaky after few hours of application
- Fades unevenly on having oily heavy meals
Here’s how it looks on me

Take Care and Stay Beautiful !
