So, recently Lakme revamped the packaging and formula of their Satin Enrich range and gave it an all new look. Lakme has introduced 10 shades in the range and most of them are pinks. I had three lipsticks from the earlier collection and I loved the formula and pigmentation. Needless to say, these lipsticks were available at Rs. 240 only and were one of the best lipstick in budget. When I get to know that they have introduced new shades with new packaging and formula I was excited to try them so I went ahead and bought a shade from the revamped Lakme Satin Enrich range.Let us see if the revamped version has lived up to my expectation.
Price: INR 260 for 4.3g
What The Product Claims:Lakmé Enrich Satin Lip Color keeps your lips satin soft, vibrant and lasts long.
My Take on the Product: The new packaging looks way better than the old maroon packaging that looked very dull and boring. The lipstick has a steel-grey bullet with a transparent cap.
The packaging is sturdy and travel friendly. The range mostly has very pale and light shades that are apt for fairer skin tones only. The shade P166 is one of the darkest shade from the range. It is almost a neon pink shade.
I have a wheatish skin tone but the color washes me out. Girls with pigmented lips should stay away from this shade. The lipstick is very creamy in texture and moisturizing.The color goes opaque in 2-3 swipes but since the formula of the lipstick is very creamy, it feathers when applied on lips.
The lipstick stayed on my lips for hardly two hours without meals. The color transfers easily and might bleed if you do not use a lip liner. I feel the earlier formula of these lipsticks were much better and the color payoff was really rich.
I hope Lakme introduces darker shades apt for Indian skin tones.Overall, I am not happy with the new version of Lakme Satin enrich and I’ll skip rest of the shades.
Pros: 1. Moisturizing
2. Pleasant smell
Cons: 1. Feathers a lot
2. Washes me out
3. All the shades are suitable for fairer skin tones only
4. Poor staying power
5. Bleeds without a lip liner underneath
6. Transfers easily
Recommendation: Skip this range, unless you are too excited to try one. The older version of Lakme Satin enrich range was much better in texture, choice of shades and pigmentation.
