Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick P166 Review, Swatches & Price in India

Hello Beauties,

Ever since I learned makeup, I saw makeup, I like makeup. There is one brand which has always been with me in my journey, no points for guessing its LAKME.  If there is one product I could say I have seen with most of the moms is a Lakme Lipstick from the Enrich Satin range. I have seen my mother using these, my aunts using these and every other lady almost.  No matter how boring the packaging was, the price and the buttery texture was enough for me to grab a few from that range. This range of lipsticks had numerous shades and they were beautiful. The only complaint was the bulky boring maroon pack and overtly buttery texture which led to easy breakage of the bullet.

Alright, enough of History classes, lets get to the fact. These lipsticks have been re-launched in an all new avatar. These have been come up in 40 shades with 10 new shade additions.

See it Through my Eyes

Since there are so many options, and I have so many lipsticks I thought I will pick up a few. Luckily, I got one lipstick from this range as a gift in Rakhi. How thoughtful Bhaiya Smile I have got it in the shade P166 along with few other makeup goodies which I will reveal in the forthcoming posts. He knows me inside out Blum 3 

Packaging

This new packaging is such a breather when compared to the old ones. These are encased in a metallic lipstick case with a transparent plastic click lock cap. The lipsticks are named in terms of number; I would have definitely preferred names. But 40 shades, I understand the pain Lakme Biggrin This packaging is not only changed in terms of look, but it’s slim and sleek as well. The brand name is engraved on the lipstick bullet. The outer paper box is metallic silver in color with necessary product info. The head of the plastic is magnifying which shows a hint of color of the lipstick. However, the packaging is too transparent to my liking. Its like the internals body parts are visible if our skin is transparent. Weird thought I know Blum 3 Not a pleasing sight I tell you.

Texture

The texture is perfect with a balance of glossiness and moisturizing properties. It is definitely not matte. It is satin finish with the right amount of sheen and gloss to give those pouty lips.  The texture however is inconsistent in this range, my friend has Shade 359 (Red) and its less creamy and more matte which I like. I like consistency in a particular range, it’s sad that they vary in formula. But there is one thing in common these lipsticks will not dry out the lips no matter what, they have enough moisturizing properties as these are infused with Vitamin E and Olive Extracts. Being moist and cream-sheen it is transferable and it transfers badly, if I may say so Sad

Shade

This particular shade is a beautiful bubble gum pink or you may call it a Barbie pink which is blue based. It’s such a happy and flamboyant color. It instantly brightens up the face on application. It will suit fair to medium skin tones. The darker complexion might look washed out with this shade. 

Pigmentation

The color pay off is quite impressive. I have pigmented lips and it takes about two swipes to bring out the true color. On rosy pink lips, one glide will be enough. The color becomes matte after transferring and remains as a washed out stain on the lips. Some people might like it, while some may not.

Staying Power

The Longevity on the lips is about 3 to 4 hours without any meals. With proper lunch or dinner meal, the color fades and transfers. I don’t mind re-application, but in case you want your lipstick to stay on and on, this is one is not your best friend. In case you want to make it transfer proof, dab on some powder with a brush or do the tissue trick to dab the excess. Another trick is, if you use a lip brush to apply the color to make it stay long on that pout Wink

What I don’t like about Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick P166

  • It transfers everywhere until it sets on the lips.
  • Smell is like a chewing gum with vanilla strawberry flavor which is quite strong,
  • Color pay off not very impressive on pigmented lips.
  • Settles into fine lines if lips are chapped.
  • Formula is not consistent in the range; it differs from lipstick to lipstick.
  • Prices have been slightly hiked in the new avatar.
