Today, I am reviewing a new launch lipstick from Lakme and it is from their very affordable & old range Enrich Satin Lip Color #149.
Cast a spell in satin. Rich color takes life in a luxuriously creamy stick that brings satin to your lips.
Enriched with sunscreens, vitamins and the goodness of olives, your lips will have a story to share. Indulge in a pod of beautiful shades ranging from floral pinks to shimmering peaches.
Price: Rs. 225
Lakme Enrich Satin Lipsticks are known by none & all. These lipsticks happened to me my every first encounter into the world of makeup from my mom’s vanity and they are still going strong and have special place in our hearts. Recently Lakme launched a few new shades and I instantly fell in love with the color #149 out of the lot. Browns, nudes, light peachy colors are more in the lot compared to bright pinks, corals & reds. The packaging is classic matte finished maroon outer case which securely closes with a sound of a click. I don’t except nor see Lakme changing their packaging anytime sooner so I am not going to whine about how difficult it gets to locate a shade if you own a few of these lipsticks.
Looking beyond the packaging, the shade #149 is a beautiful blue-based bright pink color and it instantly lightens up the face. The finish is satin-y on the lips and it does not contain any kind of shimmer. The texture is super creamy & buttery, that I sometimes feel this lipstick will melt away but hasn’t happened yet, just my fear. Shade #149 is insanely pigmented and a single swipe gives almost opaque coverage & hides any sort of pigmentation to full extent. The color in the tube & on hand doesn’t look as bold as I feel it when swiped on lips. It requires extra care and applying it with a brush rather going over the lips directly from the tube works better for me for the controlled application.
Since it is highly pigmented, it transfers heavily during the meals and I was pretty sure after the meal that the color must have faded and I was kind of hoping it should have faded atleast evenly but I was surprised to check after 4 hours of outing it looked just as freshly applied and there was very little fading on lips and definitely you can skip re-touching if you plan to wear it for longer times.
1. Smooth & creamy texture
2. Very pigmented
4. Beautiful bright pink
5. Fades out evenly
6. Staying power is amazing even with meals in between
1. Transfers heavily during the meals
2. Requires precision & care for faultless application
3. Too creamy texture, feels like it might melt in humid/hot climate
If you love bright pinks, then Lakme Enrich Satin Lip Color #149 should be tried out. For the price, the quality is amazing in terms of texture, pigmentation & color pay off.
