This is one of the lipistics which my mother has been using every single day for the past 4 months. Today I shall be reviewing the same. My mother likes berry, plum and wine shades and this shade( only the colour) is one of her favourites.
Product being reviewed: Lakme Enrich Lipcolour Classics 255 Chilli Plum
What the website says: Deep conditioning lipcolor enriched with Vitamin E for softer and smoother lips. Contains strawberry, grape seed, and peach extracts to keep lips nourished and soft. Made in India.Enriched with sunscreens, vitamins and the goodness of olives, your lips will have a story to share.
Price/Packaging: I am not too sure about the price, I guess it was approximately around INR 225 . There is nothing too fancy about its packaging, same old brownish maroon lipistic case. There is no way you can see the lipistic shade when it is closed so either you remember the numbers and shades or check all the cases when you are searching for a particular shade.
My take on the lipstick: The very first day mom put this, I loved the colour so much that I wanted to buy a second piece for myself. It is a nice mauvish plum shade with a tinge of wine colour, very true to its name , chilli plum :toothygrin: though there is nothing like chilli in it :secret: The colour is not too pigmented but can be build up with 2-3 swipes. It does not dry out the lips at all. The texture of the lipstick is very smooth and glides on easily on the lips. It has subtle shimmer in it ( but not OTT) due to which it looks frosty. It loses marks on the staying power which is around 2-3 hours after which it starts to fade. In fact with a heavy meal, the time would further reduce. Coming to the fragrance, it has a weird smell like all other lakme lipistics, I quite detest this brand because of the fragrance in the lipsticks, I kind of find it medicated :yuck:
Summing up the review :
Pros of Lakme Enrich Lipcolour Classics 255 Chilli Plum
1. Beautiful mauvish plum shade
2. Does not dry out the lips.
3. Does not bleed or settle into fine lines
Cons of Lakme Enrich Lipcolour Classics 255 Chilli Plum
1. The smell is weird, it might just be a personal opinion but I just did not like the smell.
2. Does not have a good staying power, hardly stays for 2 hours, who has the time to do touch ups so often???
3. Not high on the pigmentation factor, ofcourse it can be build up but with one swips you can’t have the true colour on the lips.
4. Those who don’t like frosty lipsticks will not like this as well.
IMBB Rating : 3 out of 5
Will I repurchase?
No, I will not. I like my lipsticks to stay for at least 4 hours, this isn’t my type.
