Today I will be reviewing a Lakme enrich satin lipstick in shade number 359. I have total 4 shades from this range and this is my first red lipstick. I love this range for mainly its price and now they have enlarged the options quite a lot. So let us get started.
Product description: Richest Satin Colour. Amazing satin texture. Cast a spell in satin. Rich colour takes life in a luxuriously creamy stick that brings satin to your lips. Enriched with sunscreens, vitamins and the goodness of olives, your lips will have a story to share. Indulge in a pod of beautiful shades ranging from floral pinks to shimmering peaches.
Price: INR 225(Got it for INR 200 after discount)
My experience with Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick in 359:
I have personally loved the enrich satin range because it was the most common lipstick for my mother and whenever she used to go out I used to sneak into her makeup kit and slather it all over my lips. I love this range because all most of you have heard it that its quite creamy and that too at such a low price. It glides on smoothly.
Talking about this particular shade, the red is kind of blood red. I was sceptical that if it would look good on me because I have a wheatish complexion. I tried it at a party and I got many compliments for it. It is quite pigmented although you would need 2-3 swiped to see its full glory. It is matte but not dry looking. It gives a particular sheen and you don’t need a lip balm or gloss with it. It has a very light shimmer. You won’t even see it at first unless you kind of blend it on your hand. Since my lips are not dry so I did not encounter any problems like settling of the colour in fine lines or flakiness.
The staying time is quite low approximately 2-3 hours and very transferrable. :/
The packaging is boring as you all know it already. But you can’t get everything at such a low price. According to me it would look good on both fair and wheatish complexioned ladies. And if you are experimenting with Red for the first time like me I would suggest you to start with Lakme.
