My Experience with Lakme Enrich Satin P158 Lipstick:
Packaging: The packaging is pretty good because the lipstick is accompanied with a box. The box is a silver one, which looks really good and inside stays the lipstick. The lipstick comes in a transparent and silver packaging, with the shade number written at the bottom. I wish there were shade names instead of numbers. The lid closes with a click and hence no chances of the bullet chipping. The price is just amazing and these lipsticks are a very good deal.
Shade, pigmentation and finish: The shade “P158” is a beautiful deep coral shade with a lot of pink tones. It can rightly be called a carrot red shade, which looks extremely refreshing and feminine. It is a great colour for day-wear on lunch dates and movies. It is a perfect coral for the Indian skin-tone but I think it may wash out dusky skin-tones.
If you are some, who doesn’t like bright or neon corals, then this is the perfect and safe coral shade to try out. The pigmentation is just amazing. I get the colour in the first swipe itself but I swipe it more, to build up the colour.
It is a good one that will cover pigmented lips as well. The finish is a semi matte with a glossy sheen for the initial hour. It won’ turn matte at any point, since it has a creamy consistency.
Staying power: The staying power of this lipstick is really good considering the price. It stays on my lips for 4 to 4 and half hours and then leaves a light natural coral stain. It does transfer, since it has a semi matte finish. It does not settle in fine lines in the lips but settles in the outer V of the lips a bit. Overall, extremely good deal!
