Hello Pretty Ladies,
Lakme has added 10 new shades to its enrich satin range with new packaging and new price. I have been hearing mixed reviews about this range since it has come out. When I saw all the shades online, I was quite tempted as they were all so pretty. I especially took some time out to visit these in person because I so wanted to check this range out. I would say I was not that impressed with the range of colour they have to offer as they have not experimented a lot with the colours. I am sure they could have done better. The range has pinks to tangerine to lavender in which few have shimmer as well. The range is named from P163 to P172. It would have surely been better if they could give some name to the shades. This was all about the range. Now let’s talk particularly about the one shade that I picked which is P169. To know my views on it please keep reading.
Let’s get started with the details.
Price: INR 260 for 4.3g. I got it from the Lakme counter in Bangalore central but you can easily find it anywhere and can also buy it online if you know which shade you want to pick.
Ingredients: Not mentioned.
Shelf Life: 24 months.
Product Description: Steal the show with an intense, vibrant pout. The added goodness of olive oil and vitamin E helps keep your lips feeling satin smooth.
Packaging: Lakme has improved the packaging this time which is also reflected in its price if we compare it to the old collection. The lipstick comes in a silver box. The box is the only source of all the information that the company had to provide which is surely not enough as ingredients used are missing. The useful information on it is the two lines description, caution, MRP, shelf life, weight and shade number. The colour bullet comes in a silver tube with a transparent cap. It also has a sticker at the base of the tube with the shade number on it.
Texture: It surely has smooth texture as it says and glides on easily which makes it easy to apply.
Odour: It has that significant smell that the old satin range had which I personally do not mind.
My Experience With Lakme P169 Enrich Satin Lipstick:
I did not expect a lot when I bought this lipstick and I must admit I purely bought it for the colour. It is a blue toned bubblegum pink which is undoubtedly pretty. It is very easy to put on as it is very smooth while applying. It is quite moisturising and does not dry out my lips. I guess it is because of the presence of olive oil in the formula.
It lasts for 3 to 4 hours easily and then needs a touch up. It does what it claims and helps in keeping the lips feeling satin smooth. Even after removing it off it leaves my lips soft and smooth. When it fades off it does not leave any kind of stain behind which I personally love as I do not like lipsticks that leave their stain.
As it is quite creamy it transfers a bit. The shade differed quite a bit when swatched on hand and lips. The colour that I thought it would be after swatching it on my hand was not the same when I applied it to my lips. But I am not complaining as I also love the colour that came on my lips. It is quite pigmented and does give a nice cover in the first swipe.
Over all, as I said that when I bought it I did not expect much for 260 INR but it is a total ‘paisa vasool’.
Pros of Lakme P169 Enrich Satin Lipstick:
• It is quite moisturising and does not dry my lips when it is on.
• It does stay for 3 to 4 hours easily which is great for the price it is sold for.
• It has creamy texture which makes it easy to be applied and it glides on smoothly.
• It is quite pigmented and gives a nice colour in one swipe.
• It leaves the lips soft after removal.
• Very affordable. That lipstick for 260 INR? It is a steal.
• Contains olive oil and vitamin E.
• Packaging is improved.
• Easily available.
• Stays for almost 4 hours which is not at all bad.
• It surely gives that vibrant pout.
Cons of Lakme P169 Enrich Satin Lipstick:
• No ingredients mentioned.
• As it is creamy it does transfer.
Will I Repurchase Lakme P169 Enrich Satin Lipstick?
Yes. As I said earlier, for 260 INR it is a steal. Though I got a bit mislead while swatching I still love the colour that it turned out to be. I would not only buy other shades from this range but would also be buying this particular shade if I finish this bullet anytime soon.
Will I Recommend Lakme P169 Enrich Satin Lipstick To You?
Yes. Who does not like a bright pink shade? Go and get it.
