Hello All, Today I am going to review Lakme Lip Love lipstick, the most expensive lipstick that I have bought till date. Actually, I haven’t bought it at the first place. I will tell you the story behind it in short.
A few months after my wedding, I went for shopping with my mom-in-law and she wanted to buy any dark-colored lipstick. So, we went to the Lakme counter and the SA showed us the Lip Love collection. I hesitated to ask for the price. The SA started swatching the Lip Loves’ on my hand. Although, I did not like this one at all, but when I asked my mom-in-law to choose the one, she chose this one.
Then, the SA gave us the bill and both me and my mom-in-law were surprised and shocked when we got to know the lipstick’s price (a whopping Rs.550 for a Lakme lipstick!!!!).
After some days, she said the shade is too dark for her liking and wanted me to use it. I was like grrrr :headbang:
My Take on Lakme Lip Love Lipstick in Dark Desire:
This is my first ever lipstick from Lakme. I think Lakme is the only reputed make up brand for make up novices like me. It comes in such a cute packaging that I fell in love instantly with Lip Love. The bright red cover has a heart engraved on it that forms the O of Love.
The shade’s name is printed on the base of the lipstick case.
On removing the cap, the lipstick case is bright silver which has Lakme printed on it in white color.
The lipstick also has “LOVE” engraved on it like the cap.
Now, coming to the shade. I tried hard to like the lipstick, but every time, I pull out the lipstick from the case, I feel like :yuck: :yuck: The lipstick has scratchy kind of shimmers and that too big ones.
I forgot about this lipstick completely, but a few days back when I was arranging my stuff, I stumbled upon this lipstick and the first thought that came to my mind was “what a waste of Rs. 550,” but still I tried to give it another try. This time the lipstick had a purplish kind of color on the top and when I was swatching it, the brown shade was coming out from beneath the purplish surface. :chewnails:.
The application was not smooth at all. Although, the lipstick is quite creamy, but still, I could feel the scratchy glitters rubbing against my skin and giving a streaky application.
Apart from the glitters, I did not like (read hate) the shade also. I think it too dark for my liking and it made me look darker.
Someone has rightly said that “looks can be deceptive” and the same holds true for this lipstick. Contary to its name “Dark Desire,” I don’t desire for this lipstick at all.
Now, coming quickly to the pros and cons.
Pros of Lakme Lip Love Lipstick in Dark Desire
- Sturdy and attractive packaging.
- Creamy texture.
- Very pigmented.
- Single swipe is enough to get the color.
Cons of Lakme Lip Love Lipstick in Dark Desire
- Dirty and cheap-looking glitter particles.
- Swipe is not smooth at all and gives a streaky effect.
- I did not like the color at all. :yuck:
1.5/5 (just for the packaging and pigmentation).
Do I Recommend?
No, not at all. Stay away from this lipstick. I don’t know if this is the problem only with the shade. I cannot dare to try any other lipstick from this range after this horrible experience. This is a complete waste for me. Please suggest if it could be put to any use.
