If you have been following my lipstick posts, you would know I picked up some new mattes from Lakme. Since the packaging screamed the word “matte,” I picked up 5-6 colors which turned out to be awesome. For a price tag of INR 295, these can not go wrong. Have a look at this taupe grey shade which can also be a n*de lipstick shade for warm skin tones.
India’s number one lipstick now in a matte format for the first time . Creamy matte texture that is comfortable to wear . Finish and color delivery of matte lipsticks but comfort of creme lipsticks . No drag on lips . Intense color payoff.
My Experience with Lakme Enrich Matte Lipstick Shade PM16:
I don’t know how to pinpoint the texture of this lipstick. If you have used L’Oreal moist matte lipsticks, they have this matte but strange cushiony feel to them. These Lakme lipsticks feel similar but lack pigmentation of the former.
“PM16” is a brown shade with loads of grey tones to it. If you have fair or deep skin tones, this color would be for you. For the “in between” skin tones, this does not do much justice. This feels more like a grey than a brown on me.
The texture is smooth – if you layer too much, it starts to feel flaky and deposits in lip lines. The lipstick is otherwise quite nice, smooth and pigmented enough and price is comfortable too.
This Lakme range has many bright shades as well. I think most of us would like the matte soft feel that it has, and it’s not too drying on normal lips. It comes out as very matte too. It lasts well for three hours, does not stain and does not bleed either.
I have to say that I find the packaging quite annoying as it looks like some cheap tester. The outer covering is better than the inner tube of the lipstick.
Pros of Lakme Enrich Matte Lipstick Shade PM16:
- Soft matte.
- Nice grey toned n*de brown.
- Lasts well on the lips.
- Not too drying as a matte.
Cons of Lakme Enrich Matte Lipstick Shade PM16:
- Too grey for my fair medium skin tone.
- Flakes and accumulates in more than two coats.
- Annoying packaging.
Would I Recommend/Repurchase Lakme Enrich Matte Lipstick Shade PM16?
Yes for sure, but not this shade, as this does not add on to my complexion. I cannot carry grey toned lipsticks but if you can, try this for sure.
