Lakme Aqua Shine Lipcolor Cocoa Review , Swatch

Hey lovely people….hope everyone’s doing great :)

Ladies and girls never move out of lovely shades for their lips and nails, and I’m one among them. For my lips, I don’t prefer lipsticks as much as I love lip glosses. Lip glosses, and especially those ina natural shade impress me the most. My lip-gloss commitment belongs to Lakme, would still like to know from you all, which are the best ones you like. Lakme Aquashine Color Gloss is all in one, like a lipstick with a gloss. Its available in a variety of shades like- Nude, Old Rose, Lotus, Orchid, Wildberry, Wine, Gingersnap, fig, Teracotta, Truffle, Plum, Sand, Peach, Sepia, Cocoa, Sangaria. I bought this shade long back and was happy with it, but forgot it in a friend’s purse, so it was high time to buy another one. After trying all the other shades I again landed up with the same shade.:P

My Take on Lakme Aquashine Cocoa:

First things first, contrary to its name, it’s not an intense dark shade. But whatever it is, it looks good on me. It’s a gloss that you can use for everyday purpose or day functions. I like it particularly because it doesn’t look gaudy even if I use it everyday. What I like the most about this one is the way in which it comes out from the small pores, no brush required or question of drying or thickening up or nothing else to depend on for application.

3 in 1 formula:

If your lips are dry it’s ok to use this one (I’ve even tested it on dry lips) it smoothens them. The cocoa tint is there but it is not as dark since it is a gloss.

You might be able to observe that in the swatch, on my lips it looks like a natural shade of brown…and I think it suits me real good…I can use it for a dress of any and every color.

Stay on capacity:

It stays on for around 3 hours, in case you don’t eat/drink anything. But it has no water resistance and gets easily washed off.

Pros of Lakme Aqua Shine Lipcolor Cocoa:

  • It’s a lip-color with gloss, so you don’t need an additional gloss.
  • The shade looks natural and light, suited for everyday wear.
  • Easy to carry in a purse.
  • Easy application, actually that’s the best part of it.
  • It  nourishes dry lips.
  • Good for a gloss, stays for 3 hours approximately.
  • It gives the perfect required amount of shine with the color.
  • Good fragrance (mixture of perfume with a hint of cocoa).

Cons of Lakme Aqua shine lipcolor Cocoa:

  • Cocoa shade works better for everyday use, so some people may not be happy to use it for special occasions.
  • Priced quite high for its quantity.
  • Doesn’t have properties of a lip-color, doesn’t stay for so long.

Overall:

Whatever its cost is , I totally love it, and I try my level best to use this for my lips whenever possible because natural shades work the best on me. This is one shade that would be a part of my mandatory make-up treasure forever. So people, if you love brown shades for your lips and feel that they suit you, this is the right choice :)

IMBB Rating:

4.5/5

have they changed the packaging?? I liked the color though. It’s soft and would work with a lot of Indian skin tones. :) Loved your lip swatch. :)
