I am back with another lipstick post and this time I am going to share my thoughts on the newly launched lipsticks by Lakme. After successful series of enrich satin lipsticks, Lakme launches their enrich matte lipsticks collection. The price of the Lakme Enrich Matte Lipstick is Rs.295 for 4.7g. These are easily available at local beauty stores and also online at Amazon.in. Today I am going to share my experience with the very first lipstick of this range RM 13.
About Lakme Enrich Matte Lipsticks
The new Lakme Enrich Matte will be available in 20 vibrant shades, and come in a spectrum of pinks, browns, light and dark colors, all designed to match every skin tone.
These attractive new matte lipsticks are extremely comfortable to wear thanks to their creamy texture, making it the best of both worlds! Its intense colour delivery has no drag while applying and prevents from drying those luscious lips.
Packaging: Lakme Enrich Matte Lipstick RM 13 comes in a clear plastic case with a silver matte inner body.The only difference in the packaging of the Enrich Satin lipstick & Enrich Matte lipstick is that the later comes with a matte inner case. There is no shade name provided, only the shade number is mentioned at the bottom of the lipstick case and also on the outer carton. The packaging is not flimsy at all and the cap of this lipstick shuts quite well that makes it travel friendly.
My take on Lakme Enrich Matte lipstick RM 13?
I am a die hard fan of matte lipsticks and when I was sent these new ones from Lakme, as I have mentioned in my Lakme Enrich Matte Lipstick collection swatch post. Well, I was quite excited to give them a try. I had good experience with their enrich satin range Lipsticks so I got excited to give them a try asap! the color of this lipstick is pretty burgundy red with cool undertones which is indeed a face brightening shade of red. The color of this lipstick goes well with my NC 35 skin tone. The shape of lipstick has made for precise application.
However, the first thing I noticed was the strong fragrance these lipsticks have, which bothers sensitive noses:|. A very sweet fragrance to these, I was really disappointed. However, the great thing about this baby is the sweet and chemical kind of fragrance doesn’t linger for long. Lakme has variety of shades that work great for Indian skin tones. These lipsticks are fairly pigmented, pigmentation is great to hide dark lips, it is sheer to medium but build able. The finish is soft and creamy matte during application, settling to a nice matte after a few minutes of application. These are neither very drying on the lips nor moisturizing . Dry lips beauties definitely need lip balm underneath.
The sad part of this lipstick is it’s staying power , it stayed on me for only 3 hours. 🙁 It transfers a lot and does not even survive light meal. They are really drying on lips after 1-2 hours of application. It starts bleeding from the corners of the if not applied properly. It leaves a cheap pink stain behind which needs to remover by a good makeup remover.
