As someone said that cloths are never enough for a lady same is the case with lip colors too. We don’t get satisfy by having just a pink/red/orange lipstick with us, we like to have all sub shades of them too. So today I will be reviewing Lakme Aquashine 3 in 1 lip color in shade carnation for you all. I bought this one online and I am sure you all must be aware of how difficult it is to make out the right shades from the swatch available on online shopping sites.
Price: INR450 for 2.55 ml
Remove cap. Twist body of pen until the lip color is seen at the tip of the nib. Apply on lips for a smooth glossy finish.
Ingredients: not mentioned.
My experience with Lakme Aquashine 3 in 1 Lip Color Carnation:
This one is my first lip color from lakme aquashine 3 in 1 range. This claims to be a combination of lip color + lip gloss + lip conditioner (moisturizer). To me its texture feels like a thick, pigmented gloss. So it does have color, gloss and is moisturizing too. Its packaging is also something I like, it comes in pen like tube with slant sponge applicator on top. When the bottom part is twisted the product comes out from the tiny holes on the applicator. The applicator is soft and is easy to use. It spreads color evenly on lips. It has very sweet smell to it which reminds me of orange cream cookies.
Coming to the shade, Carnation is a light pink shade with very fine silver shimmer in it which gives it a frosty look. Personally I don’t like shimmer in my lip products and the frosty look is something which never goes well with my skin tone. So after using it for few times I made up my mind that this is not the color which suits me and it deserves place in my not so used product box. But then one day I used it in little lesser quantity then I use otherwise, and that way it gave me very soft and less frosty looking lips, which I liked. There on I use it like that, just to get some color and shine on my lips. I also used it on top of dark lip pencils and it works wonderfully in softening them. It has 2 hours of wear time, after that it fades living the silver shine on lips which again is not soothing I like. So this product works best as a top cote gloss for me. This is less sticky then other gloss but the problem of hair sticking on lips remains with this too.
In totality I love the formula and texture of this multitasking product, I like it packaging but the shade is not the best shade for me.
Pros of Lakme Aquashine 3 in 1 Lip Color Carnation:
• Unique product with 3 products (lip color/gloss/conditioner) in 1.
• Very convenient packaging, easy to use.
• Does not bleed.
• Sweet smell, but not bothersome.
Cons of Lakme Aquashine 3 in 1 Lip Color Carnation:
• Shade is too frosty for my liking.
• Stays for only 2 hours.
• Looks messy if applied more product.
• This shade is not the best choice for pigmented lips.
Final verdict: Like shiny, colored lips which are well moisturized without using 3 different products, then this is a good choice. Also people who like frosty pinks will love this shade; others please look for other shades from this range.
IMBB rating: 3/5 (deducted marks for the shade)
Will I be repurchasing Lakme Aquashine 3 in 1 Lip Color Carnation: Not this shade may be other one.
