Who doesn’t love new launches? Well, I do! These Lakme Lip Love Lip Care balms were introduced a few months back, and now they have come up with 2 more variants. I picked both up because I did not get any chance to buy the previous ones. These are darker colors that would suit my wee bit pigmented lips better. Let’s see how they fare!
My Experience with Lakme Grape Lip Love Lip Care SPF 15:
The lip balm comes in a beautiful, plum colored packaging. The lid is transparent with ‘Lip Love’ in cursive, and in white color. The lip balm twists up and down perfectly. To me, this lip balm looks like Elle 18 lipsticks. Both of them look the same with the balmy center. The lid is a bit flimsy, but overall I like the packaging as it’s nice and handy.
‘Grape’ is a beautiful plum color that would look great on all skin tones. It imparts a beautiful color on the lips. It isn’t super pigmented but yes, you do get a nice tint on your lips. The color on my lip swatches is a bit light, but the wrist swatch is exactly the color it imparts. I really love the light tint that this one gives. It’s perfect for days when you don’t want to apply your lipstick, but still want some color. Love it!
It’s super creamy and smooth. It’s so creamy that the lip balm bullet broke while I was applying on my lips. 🙁 It already had a crack in it which went unnoticed by me and when I started applying, it just broke in two pieces. Anyway, coming to the moisturization part, this balm does a pretty good job at that. When your lips are super dry and you apply it, it works instantly. It soothes your dry and parched lips and provides enough moisture. It doesn’t hydrate but when you wipe off the lip balm, your lips would still have some moisture. The texture is light, so no matter how many layers you pile on, your lips won’t feel heavy.
Without meals, this lip balm lasted on me for about 3 hours. Like any lip balm, this needs frequent reapplication. But your lips won’t feel uncomfortable when the lip balm’s gone, so you could get away for 5 hours post application.
It does have a sweet grape fragrance which is mild and doesn’t linger once you apply on the lips. It has no taste, whatsoever.
