I recently picked up a lot of lipsticks and I wanted to try the Lakme Enrich matte ones, so I picked up two shades of red as the pinks weren’t available. Let’s review R13 today!
Price: Rs 295/-
• India’s number one lipstick now in a matte format for the first time
• Creamy matte texture that is comfortable to wear
• Finish and color delivery of matte lipsticks but comfort of creme lipsticks
• No drag on lips
• Intense color payoff
My Experience with Lakme RM13 Enrich Matte Lipstick:
Packaging: The lipstick comes housed in silver cardboard box and looks really classy. The lipstick bullet comes in a transparent and matte silver packaging to indicate the matte finish of the lipstick. I quite like the new packaging. The lid opens and closes with a click. It isn’t that sturdy, but it is okay. Overall, the packaging is classy and convenient.
Colour/Pigmentation: ‘R 13’ is a nice bold red shade. It is very similar to R 12, but this one is a little bit different. The shade looks gorgeous on my skin tone. It flatters my skin nicely. It’ll look good on all skin tones. The pigmentation is superb. The lipstick is pretty pigmented and all you need is 2 coats of the lipstick for a bold red lip. I like that the shade is not your typical red or orangish red. It is something different and yet so wearable.
Texture: The texture of the lipstick is again something which I like. It has a gel matte finish, the kind of matte lipsticks I love. It isn’t drying on the lips, which is good. The lipstick goes on very evenly and smoothly on the lips. It doesn’t tug on the lips. It applies nicely even on slightly moisturised lips. This lipstick looks matte and feels comfortable, two things a matte lipstick should have. Also, it is very light on the lips and doesn’t feel heavy.
Staying Power: It stays on for about 5-6 hours which is pretty decent. You need to reapply this after meals because it fades, otherwise the lipstick remains put for the entire time. It does leave a tint behind and it comes off easily with a wet wipe. Summing up the pros and cons,
Pros of Lakme RM13 Enrich Matte Lipstick:
