It has been a long time since I last wrote here and it feels so damn good to be back 🙂 I have been a hell lot busy lately with projects and placements as this is my final year. Wish me luck 😉 I had to balance everything out and now I am having a bit of time for myself. Coming to the review, recently I got another shade from the “Enrich Satin” lipstick range of Lakme. I love how they have improved the packaging and it totally makes a difference.
260 INR for 4.3 gm.
Olive oil and Vitamin E.
Steal the show with an intense, vibrant pout. The added goodness of olive oil and Vitamin E helps keep your lips feeling satin smooth.
My Take on Lakme Enrich Satin R353 Lipstick:
Packaging: I am going ga-ga over the new transparent tube with a “concave” glass on the top that makes the lipstick bullet appear tiny. The shade number is written on a sticker below. I wish it was color-coded to avoid the effort of searching for a particular shade in a stash full of lipsticks 😛 There is an engraving on the bullet which I adore a lot!
Shade: R353 is a brownish-red color. It looks deep brown in the bullet, but turns out very different when swatched. I don’t normally wear dark, bold shades since I am not very comfortable sporting them, but this one melted my heart. I felt more confident to wear this lipstick as it was not OTT bold. It photographed beautifully too. This is an apt shade for Indian skin tones.
Texture and Pigmentation: The texture is amazingly smooth. It feels buttery soft and glides on like a dream. But exfoliation before application is a must as it’s gonna highlight flakiness. Pigmentation is also superb! I need just a single swipe and I am good to go! But on the downside, it tends to bleed if layered.
Staying Power: It stays on for like 3+ hours on my lips after which it fades from the corners. It does survive meals with even fading, but it transfers crazily even at the slightest touch. Thankfully, it does not leave behind any strong stain. Also, it smells like the old Enrich satin lipsticks and yeah, it tastes kinda sweet 😛
I like the formula as it did not dry out my lips and an important factor that I would like to mention is that this shade is free from shimmers! Yay! 😀
