Today I am gonna review one very interesting shade from LAKME ENRICH SATIN Series.
The number of the shade is “P168”.
Lakme launched 20 new shades in Enrich Satin Series with new packaging which is far better than the old boring maroon plastic packaging.
Lipstick Category: CREAMY MATTE
What Lakme claims:
Steal the show with an intense, vibrant pout. The added goodness of olive oil and Vitamin E helps keep your lips feeling satin soft.
The shade is “LAKME ENRICH SATIN P168″.
Well talking bout the shade, this is an interestingly unique shade deep purple with pink undertones to it.It brightens up face instantly.This shade will suit all skin tones especially Indian skin.It does not contain any shimmer in it.
4.3gms for 260 INR (Apt price for the quality it offers)
The lipsticks are packed in Beautiful transparent case, with the name of the shade written at the bottom. You can see the shade color from the top . The size is very easy to carry and travel friendly.Due to sturdy packing one is assured that it will not open in bag.I really liked the packaging of this series atleast far better than the older boring maroon ones.
Pigmentation and Texture:
These lip creams are super duper pigmented .They are just amazing .One swipe is enough for a perfect look.When applied they glide smoothly on lips without much effort.After few seconds of application they settle down to perfect matte which DO transfer.They are not completely transfer proof.
Lips do feel little heavy ie I could feel a heavy layer on my lips..They are very moisturizing and not at all drying hence do not need any lip balm application underneath .
However lips need to be ex foliated nicely before applying this shade since fine lips of my lips were highlighted a lot .Also this shade actually bleeds so one needs to first outline the lips with a liner and then fill lipstick using brush.
I have always applied directly but could make out uneven lining of lips which actually doesn’t looks good.
One thing which actually turns me off for this shade is the smell.These shades have strong chemical smell which is really very bothering and it lingers for long time.
Staying power :
The staying power of these lipsticks is good around 4 hours .However need touch ups post drink and food breaks.It starts wearing off from center of the lips and leaves a nice dark pink tint on lips. It can be easily removed using cleansing milk/make-up remover or my all time favorite coconut oil.:)
This shade is easily available on all Lakme stores.
However you can easily find it on http://www.amazon.com and http://www.nykaa.com or http://www.purplle.com
If you wanna try a funky color to experiment, this is a gorgeous shade to do so.Its really hard to find this quality available for such an affordable price .I am happy Lakme has tried such bold and different shades in this series and they are really good.
This shade is perfect for girls get together wherein you wanna look different and also goes well with Indian attire.It instantly glows up face and goes very well with just a mascara and liner.People who like to experiment with variety of shades must definitely try this .
Apart from smell if people can tolerate ,the only downside is it transfers a lot and it does stain lips
No I would not repurchase this shade.But would definitely try other shades from same series.
