Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick R359 Review

Another Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick!!!

Another Red Lipstick!!!

I never thought I am a red lipstick person, but I have so many of them!!!

Does it happen to you too??? That you keep on collecting lipsticks in shades you don’t think you love that much???

Price: INR 260 for 4.3 gm ( Available cheaper online)

Shelf Life: 24 months

Lakme Enrich Satin R359 belongs to the red family of Enrich Satin Lipsticks. It is a beautiful red color, with slight orange undertones.It is quite pigmented in nature, though 2-3 swipes are needed to get an even color on the lips. The color looks gorgeous on Indian skin tones, and works especially well with Indian ethnic wear.

The lipstick has a smooth texture, and glides on lips very easily. But one has to be careful because of its creamy texture, as it can easily move while application. Also red color needs a little extra care while application. The lipstick transfers, and lasts for hardly 2.5 hours or less. It leaves a stain on the lips though, which at times can become a little patchy as well, especially if you apply it on not so well moisturized lips.

The lipstick feels comfortable on lips, though it is not hydrating in nature. But it does not dry your lips if you apply it over a good lip balm.

Rating: 3/5

Will I recommend Lakme Enrich Satin R359 to others???

It is a beautiful red shade that looks great on medium skin tones. I will recommend this lipstick if you are looking for a decently priced everyday red lipstick, or if you are new to red shades and want to try out if you really like the color on you or not.

Do you own Lakme Enrich Satin R359 as well??? Which are your favorite all time red lipsticks??? Please share with me in the comment box.

 

Lakme Enrich Satin P152 Review

Lakme Enrich Satin Lipsticks have been in the market for a long time. Earlier, they used to come in those dark maroonish purple packing. The packing used to look boring and tacky, but the shades at that time were great for the price, and Lakme lipsticks used to a hit among the ladies. Last year, they changed their packing and came out with some new shades, along with the original shades as well. I don’t have many lipsticks from Lakme, so I picked up couple of shades. The one that I will review today is Lakme Enrich Satin P152.

Price: INR 260 for 4.3 gm ( Though you can get it cheaper online)

Shelf Life: 24

The new packaging is such a relief from the old. Now the Lakme Enrich Satin Lipsticks come in a transparent and silver combination, with the logo clearly standing out on the side. I will not say that the packaging is classy, but it is way better than what it used to be earlier.

The texture of this particular lipstick is very creamy. It glides on lips very easily, and provides a beautiful creamy look to the lips. It is not glittery or frosty, and I think that is great for Indian skin tones because frosty colors don’t go that well with Indian complexion. The lipstick does not feel sticky or drying on lips, though I will recommend using it on well hydrated lips to get a better finish.

Lakme Enrich Satin in P152 falls in pink color category according to the brand. In my opinion, the shade is more towards the Mauve shade, as it has lots of earthy undertone. The color in itself is very pretty and pigmented. I needed just one swipe to cover my moderately pigmented lips and get a great color deposit. Now some people may find this color a bit mature. To me, it is a sophisticated kind of mature shade, and not the old kinds. But in case you don’t like such colors, this shade may not be sure.

The lipstick is transferable due to its creamy texture, and therefore, does not last for more than 2.5-3 hours on the lips in its true color. It does leave a nice tint on the lips though, and does not leave the lips completely bare. The shade can further be toned down by blotting it after application, in case you don’t want it too dark. It does not dry lips a lot, although it is not hydrating in itself.

In my opinion, the Lakme Enrich Saitn lipsticks have a decent formula and color pay off for the price. It is a great buy especially if you are on a budget.

Rating: 3.5/5

Will I recommend Lakme Enrich Satin in P152 to others???

I recommend this shade to any one who loves a creamy dark pink shade with earthy undertones. Even if this shade is nit for you, I will definitely recommend trying out some other shades if you have not tried yet.

How many of you have tried out the Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick Range??? Which is your favorite shade of the lot????

 

December 2015 Empties

There are couple of things I managed to finish up in December last year, and I thought of sharing a mini review of these products. I managed to finish some hair care and skin care products in this month. Unfortunately, I am never able to finish my makeup products, and most of the time they have to be thrown out by the end of their expiry date. I will try to share what I am getting rid off in makeup, when I manage to do some clearing off.

IMG_0175Forest Essentials Eye cream :¬†The first one is an eye cream, the Forest Essentials Intensive Eye cream with Anise. I didn’t enjoy this eye cream, because it failed to do anything good for my under eye area. A detailed review of this eye cream is here.

I will not be buying this eye cream again. Any recommendations from your side???

Dove Oxygen Moisture shampoo: This is the first time that I tried this shampoo, and I must say it is good. It smells great, and leaves my hair smooth and shiny. A nice decent budget friendly shampoo, it comes at INR 292 for 340 ml. I will definitely buy it again, and recommend to anyone looking for a good shampoo for lifeless rough hair.

L’oreal Total Repair 5 hair masque:¬†Another hair product that I managed to finish is this hair masque from L’oreal. A detailed review of this product can be seen here.

Nivea Soft Light Moisturizer: Now this one from Nivea has been my favorite for a long time. I know a lot of people love this light cream. I do not use it for my face. Rather, it is a favorite for my feet and hands. I love using it on my hands especially before sleeping. I love the mild fragrance and the fact that it can be used in so many ways. Very economical cream, it is a must have in my case, because I feel that every one in the family can find one way or the other to include this cream in their daily routine.

Maybelline Baby Lips Color Berry Sherbet: I have mentioned it a number of times now that I love Maybelline Baby Lips. I have just finished the one in color Berry Sherbet. Honestly, I did not enjoy these colored ones as much as I like the original ones. They are not that hydrating on lips. I will not repurchase these ones again.

Lakme Sun Expert SF30++ : I am not very regular with my sunscreens. I know that is a bad thing, but somehow I feel my skin can’t breathe whenever I have sunscreen on. But last month we were lucky enough to have lots of sunshine in the cold weather, so I tried to be regular with this sunscreen when ever going out. Initially I felt a bit weird using it, but now I don’t have that much trouble using it. It also prevented any tanning since the time I started using it.

Nike Woman Free Soul Deodorant: Last but not the least, I finished up this deo from Nike. It has a very nice long lasting smell. I will repurchase it again in the summer, as right now I am trying out another one.

I hope you enjoyed the post. Any products from the list that you used up in the last month??? Please share your experiences with me.
