This is my very first Lakme product. Surprised? You see I wasn’t always into makeup and I only used to use eye liner from Elle 18 maximum for any occasion. But as I used to read reviews and tutorials now a days I wanted to start with eye makeup.
And when I stumbled on this I just took it without even noticing that it’s a lip color. I always used it for my eyes. Only when I saw once in another blog I realized it was a lip color actually.
Price and Quantity:
Rs. 50 when I got. Current collection has thicker pencils at 295 Rs. Can you believe that? Got to see some time,
Packaging: It comes in a long black pencil made out of soft plastic which can be sharpened in the time of need and a plastic transparent cap. The end has a coppery bronze color on it.
Color: it is an amazing copper bronze, ideal for starters in makeup like me (I am good at it now). One swipe gives real good color without tugging and it’s extremely soft as well so one should be careful after sharpening as it can break if applied too hard.
It makes my eyes pop so well giving a bright eye with soft shimmer ideal for a hurried makeup day look. Put some nude lip gloss and you are done. With kajal on lower water line or lash line (skip the water line here) and lining your lop lash line with this alone and mascara. you have wide eyes with a hint of smoldering smokey eyes… lovely and s*xy as hell.
Texture: Like I said it’s really creamy and doesn’t have glitter but light shimmers. It can be removed easily with a normal face wash or a remover. Vaseline works best actually.
Staying power: This lip color stays for around 5 hours on my eyes and 3 hours on lips without fading. But it is a bit drying on lips so I prefer on eyes mostly.
Fragrance: None that I noticed just a faint vanilla kind of a fragrance. Not much over powering but I say it could have been better since it’s a lip color.
- Excellent color
- Good pigmentation
- Staying power is good
- Light on pocket
- Looks amazing as an eye color and sometimes as a bronzer.
- Drying on lips
- Smells really faint for a lip product
