My take on Pink Bureau:
Dying to get my hands on these newly launched Lakme matte lipsticks, finally grabbed a couple of these this weekend. Had been wearing Pink Bureau since then and here’s my review on this pretty wearable shade.
Shade: Pink Bureau is definitely the fast selling and eye catching shade from this range. Once you swipe each shade at the counter, this color would definitely catch your eye. The same happened with me, out of all the other 15 shades, this clearly stood out as unique and lovely in its own way and so made an easy entry into my vanity ;).
Pink Bureau is a deep rosy pink color with clear hints of little brown as it fades away to a tint on the lips. The color has subtle shimmer which can only be seen when observed very closely else it comes off as a matte pink on the lips. The shade is not too bright and can be easily worn anywhere. This shade is going to suit all skin tones very well.
Texture:The shade’s beauty is definitely added due to the soft and creamy texture. Just don’t compare the name ‘matte’ anywhere with drying or difficult to swipe. You are going to fall in love with the texture of these matte lippies.
It is highly pigmented and a single swipe gives a lovely color to the lips. Layering up is not necessary and won’t make the shade heavy on the lips. The color actually feels feather light on your lips. The shade won’t bleed or feather and I do not find it drying.
Staying power:The brand claims an 8 hour staying power but I find this shade visible on me for 5-6 hours at a stretch. It easily survives a full meal eliminating a need for a touch-up. The color fades evenly.
Packaging:Lakme has really revamped the pack to a super glossy pink package and with a sturdy bullet inside. If you have 2-3 shades from the same range then it would be difficult to locate it as there is no visible outer color marking.
- Pretty shade that is truly flattering on all skin tones.
- Applies easily and smoothly.
- Easily wearable sorts
- Long staying power
- Highly pigmented
- No problem of feathering or bleeding of the shade.
- Nice packaging
- Non-drying texture
- Difficult to locate the color as there is no color marking on the pack.
- Dry chapped lips would better use a lip balm else it would accentuate the lines.
Final Verdict:There is nothing charming about the color nor I would say that I have been bowled over by it. It is definitely a safe shade for all the office and college going gals or a color you can put on anytime without even worrying about a proper base makeup. I love the texture more than the shade itself though I have not applied any other color since I bought this 1. There is something quite unique about the color and I do recommend it to everyone.
