I guess we all share the love for lip balms. One is never enough! We need all, yes all the tinted ones, non-tinted ones, with SPF, without SPF, the pots, the sticks, the glossier, and what not.
So in the name of the undying love for lip balms, I am review a product which is the latest launch by Lakme, the Lakmé Lip Love Care.

My Experience with Lakme Cherry Lip Love Care:
I really had to try this as, first, it was a new launch and, second, it was too cute to miss! I mean the dual-core sticks look so tempting. So I bought all, except the Vanilla version. To start with, the Lip Love Care is a tinted lip balm that comes in the form of a swivel stick with a transparent cap which closes with a click sound. The shade is mentioned on the bottom. The tip of the stick is slanted for ease of application which I really like. The application is really smooth, providing an ample amount of moisture with a hint of red tint. It gives a glossy finish to lips and is not waxy at all. I am not too fond of the bubblegum smell though.
The moisturising effect really lasts long without meals. You may need to apply it after 3 hours, which is more than enough for me. I have been using Nivea lip butter from a long time. And this is a nice and better change for now. This is also more moisturizing than the Nivea butter; makes lips really soft instantly. The tint is also very natural, a sheer pretty red, which brightens up the face. It is actually just a hint of tint as described by Lakmé. I have pigmented lips and it shows on them, so I am happy. Good for days when I am in a hurry and don’t have time to look into the mirror!
One thing I am really surprised at is the missing ingredient list! I mean, seriously? These days we are talking about the full disclosure of ingredients, and here we don’t even have the main ingredients. No clue at all about what is there in the balmy core that makes it so smooth
It also boasts of SPF 15, which, though not very high, is good for the Winter sunny days! So, in all a good lip balm to try if you are looking for something new! Will review the other two next .
What I like about Lakme Cherry Lip Love Care:
- Seriously buttery smooth.
- Gives a nice flash of tint to the lips if one doesn’t want to go with the lipstick.
- SPF 15.
- Attractive packaging.
What I didn’t like about :
- No ingredient list (Why Lakmé why? I still can’t accept this fact!).
- Availability at present.
IMBB Rating: 3.8/5
Will I repurchase Lakme Cherry Lip Love Care?
No, as so far I haven’t repurchased a lip balm. There are just too many out there 😛 But I do recommend trying it once.
