I visited my local beauty store to replace one of my products and I saw this lipstick’s tester. I loved the color and red is one of those shades that no matter how many I have in my lip stash, I always look for the ‘perfect’ one. So I bought this one. Let’s see how it fares!
Price: INR 260 for 4.3 ml
My Experience with Lakme R352 Enrich Satin Lipstick:
Packaging: Lakme has revamped the packaging for their ‘Enrich’ range and how! The silver cardboard box it comes in looks really classy. The lipstick bullet comes in a transparent and silver packaging. I really like the new packaging. The lid opens and closes with a click. It isn’t that sturdy, but nevermind. Overall, the packaging is classy and convenient.
Color/Pigmentation: Lakme had launched their pinks earlier and now has launched the reds and wines. I swatched all of them or maybe most of them but all had shimmer in it which I did not like. Only this one and one more shade did not have any shimmer so I chose this. This one is a pure blood red color. The pigmentation is absolutely insane! It would put any high end sheer lipstick to shame! I’m not kidding! The swatch you see, that’s just one swipe of it! It’s extremely pigmented and hence you have to be very careful while applying it. It’s too much of a pigment for me, so I like to use this as a stain.
Texture: The texture is very smooth and creamy. It glides on very easily even on dry lips. But you have to scrub your lips if they are too dry as this lipstick will highlight all of it. It does moisturize my lips and my lips do not feel dry after I wipe it off. It settles to a shiny-satin finish.
Staying Power: Because this lipstick is so insanely pigmented, it transfers like crazy too! I swatched it on my hand and I went to take a wet wipe off my shelf and that left red stains on my shelf! :/ Not a good thing when your shelf is pale in color! Same when it’s on your lips! It will transfer a lot. So I mattify it using some powder so it won’t budge. The staying power is reduced by half or by 75% only because of it transferring to things. It stays for 3 hours maximum without eating/drinking/talking. If you mattify it, the staying power will be double.
Smell/Taste: It doesn’t have any strong fragrance. No taste either!
