My Take on Lakme Lip Love Lipstick – Wine Whisper:
As we all know, Lakme is a well-known and time-tested brand and we all own one or the other lipstick from this brand and must not have been disappointed. I won’t say that I love this brand, but still the variety in shades, range and affordable price list, makes it a much sought-after cosmetic brand name for Indian beauties.
Continuing the trend, I bought this lipstick, just because I wanted to try one lipstick from this range by Lakme.
The shade I got is true to its name, it’s a brilliant dark wine shade. Wine shade is the darkest shade of red and this lipstick comes off as a true color of dark wine on to the lips. For me, I can wear it any time as I love dark shades, but for some, it may just be an occasional-wear lipstick. Though I do keep the rest of my makeup to be minimal since this is quite a bold shade and needs complete attention. 😉
Swatch: Single swipe, without and with flash.
The lipstick is soft, smooth and highly pigmented. Apply a single swipe to achieve a perfect flush of color on to your lips. The buttery soft texture of this lipstick makes it easy to melt, so I am sure I need to refrigerate it in summers and even you better use a lip liner to outline or fill your lips before applying this as it may bleed in hot weather. I do not generally apply a lip liner with every lipstick, but with this one, I need to use a liner every time. The lipstick is creamy and moisturizing and does not settle in fine lines. The finish is a little lustrous, so a lip gloss can be avoided too.
The lipstick stays on 3 hours and more on me. After that, it kind of fades away into a dark stain on the lips that stays on for another 2 hours or so with light to heavy snacks in between. So overall, the lipstick stays on a good 5 hours on me, which I am quite okay with. :pompom:
I actually admire the red and metal covering of this lipstick which is quite different from the usual Lakme lipsticks. The big Love engrossed on the bullet completes the entire look and makes it classier. :whistle:
So overall, I am very happy to purchase this lipstick. It has an extra SPF 16, which would be good for summers, just that the price is on the higher side, but one can grab this on offers mainly. :waytogo:

Do I Recommend/Will I Repurchase Lakme Lip Love Lipstick – Wine Whisper?
Yes, I want to pick up Plum Pout shade in this which has already been reviewed here, but not right now. You may try these as these are a good value for money spent though the shades are nothing new or different, but some shades are quite pretty (remember Aphrodite Blush).
