Like I have been saying I am really discovering some underated/mystrey products from Lakme that we never pay attention to.The North-east Indian SA at the Lakme counter at my Shopper’s stop is the prime reasons I love visiting that counter, she is most helpful, offers the best service and remember all my previous purchases so I dont buy the same thing again, she is amazing! :)

So yesterday found me at Shopper’s stop again and while my daughter and hubby were busy in a God sent kid’s park adjacent to SS, I quickly hopped in to say “hello” to my favorite SA, and as it was destined, I did a major Lakme haul again! All these days I was just getting one or two of some pretty Enrich satin lip colors but yesterday, I targeted the remaining eye shadows and lipsticks from the absolute range,I was told that the Lip Last lip color from Lakme has a lot of issues with the customers and hence they are more of less discountinued,though I do see them on the Lakme India website.

While all the pretty nude shades are reviewed on IMBB (read the links below), I did realize there are some more pretty shades that I could use, I got most of the pretties, though I still need to review the shades in “Pink princess and Pink Romance, are still weighing on mind. :)

The range is called matte but let me tell you they have glossy, shimmer and frost shades as well , and this will really surprise you, it is more of a sheer lipstick,almost a tinted lip balm!!!

I was hoping the lipstick will be a thick pigmented one which will be a plum that could be used a lip tint or stain, but I was disappointed and shocked to see that it was the consistency of a lip balm.I has to swipe it on and one like some lip balm to even swatch it for you, then today while I was testing it, I realized I had to really struggle to get some color on to my lips, this could not even hide the uneven skin tone on my lips. This kind of sets and then the balmy texture is gone and it looks like a soft tint or stain of plum on the lips, it looks pretty no doubt but it did take me for a surprise!

The color is a pretty plum and the texture is waxy and like a lip balm, very sheer and so pigmented lips can avoid it! I did not like it at all as it gave me no coverage, they do not mention that this is a sheer lipstick and hence when you spend Rs. 395 on this, you need to know what you get!

 

It stays like a tint for about two to three hours without meals and it keeps lips light and hydrated.It is not cakey or heavy and more like a sheer lipstick. The coverage is streaky as well.

Last word:

Overall, this is like a tinted lip balm, you must know this before you get it, it is not the right lipstick if you are looking for coverage for your pigmented lips.I am disappointed as I was looking at a pigmented lipstick but got a sheer one instead, the tester felt the same as well. :)

i think it would have proved to be a very pretty purple if it was pigmented.. the only reason it is looking good is because of your lips neha di :)
n the SA was right about issues with lip last.. it is extremely drying :-(
