Hola ladies! 😀
How have you all been? My week has been pretty neat 😛 Just the usual days but very relaxed. I’m in my last semester of engineering and my college life will be over in two months *cry* But pretty excited about dressing up for graduation and stuff. *happy dance* The only part I hate about these days is to sit in class *cry* The weather in Bangalore is 40 degrees and sitting in long lectures is such a pain *cry* How’s the weather in your city?
Anyways, the product I am reviewing today is Lakme Enrich Satins Lipstick 159. This is a new addition to their Enrich Satins lipsticks and belongs to the Lakme Color Illusion range that they launched recently. I bought this one online and picked it up for how coral pink it looked. Let’s see how this one fared.
Price: Rs. 230

My experience with Lakme Enrich Satins lipstick 159:
Lakme Enrich Satins is known for its pocket friendly price, the wide range of colors available etc. I read a lot of reviews on this on IMBB. Some really pretty colors at a reasonable price. This is my first buy from Lakme Enrich Satins range. 😛 Firstly, about the packaging. It is a plastic brownish purple case with the shade number written on cap and below the bullet. The bullet is golden in color and on the whole, the packaging is not that great. But for Rs. 230 you can’t have high expectations 😛 Now about the color. I saw it online and it looked very coral pink to me. When I got it, it was slightly different and it did not turn out to be that shade *cry* It turned out to be a bubble gum kind of pink shade. About the texture, it is creamy and very moisturizing.
When you have this on, you don’t have to apply a lip balm underneath. Since it is soo creamy and buttery, one should be really careful while applying as well because it may break with slight pressure. So I would recommend using a lip brush to apply this. Now about the coverage, I had to apply multiple swipes to get the exact color. So not that great in that department . *nababana* This color like I said is a perfect bubblegum pink shade. I am fair with pink undertones and I felt the color washed me out slightly. But my mum kept telling how good it looked on me. So I was a little confused. *nababana* Maybe I felt it washed me out because I lean towards corals, bright pinks and red most of the time 😛 So I haven’t experimented with such colors. But it gives a very subtle look overall. I’m not too sure about whether this would look good on all skin tones. I would say swatch it and then decide, don’t go blindly by the color 😛 I have been using this for a few days now and the staying power is quite good for the price. I apply 2 to 3 swipes in the morning and it stays for almost 3 hours without meals. With meals, it leaves behind a light stain. It can survive just a single meal as per my experience. On the whole, this lipstick is worth a try if you love such shades.
Pros of Lakme Enrich Satins Lipstick 159:
• Very moisturizing.
• Bubblegum pink color.
• Creamy and buttery.
• Staying power is quite good.
• Pocket friendly 😛
Cons of Lakme Enrich Satins Lipstick 159:
• They break easily with slight pressure.
• Boring packaging.
• Coverage is not that great. Needs to be swiped multiple times for full coverage.
Will I repurchase/recommend Lakme Enrich Satins 159?
I don’t think I will repurchase this one . One reason is I personally love brighter shades and second reason is this one ain’t getting over anytime soon 😛
I would recommend this to the ones who love such bubblegum pink colors. Like I said, it won’t suit all skin tones so better swatch it and then buy. It may wash out a few skin tones. *nababana*
Until next time, take care everyone!!
