SWATCH

???????????????????????????????

TEXTURE,FINISH & STAYING POWER:The texture of the blush is smooth and non-gritty.It has golden sheen to it rather than golden shimmer that gives slight highlighting effect.I find it a  bit powdery on swatching but it blends beautifully on cheeks.It doesn’t clog pores neither accentuate them.

???????????????????????????????

Live pink is a pretty light pink that can be worn to office as it is very subtly and imparts slight glow to cheeks, It is not overly pigmented and 2 swipes can give good amount of shade.I like my blushes to have light pigmentation (not poorly pigmented!!! 😀 )as I like layering them.The one that are highly pigmented have to be used carefully and can be easily overdone.

???????????????????????????????

It stays for about 4-5 hours after which it starts fading.

PROS:

  • Smooth and soft texture.
  • doesn’t clog pores.
  • provides slight highlighting effect on cheeks.
  • can be worn to office as well.
  • reasonably priced.
  • decently pigmented.
  • decent staying power for the shade it is.
  • packaging is sweet.
  • blends beautifully.

 

CONS:

  • the staying power could be a bit more.
  • not easily available.
  • the texture is chalky on swatching.

RATING: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: I love the blush,the shade,the packaging and everything in this cute product.It is one of my most used blushes these days.I highly recommend this to everyone as it can be used with any look and will suit everyone.

NEW Lakme’ Enrich Satin Lipstick-143 review & swatches

???????????????????????????????

So,finally all the 26 shades are available at Lakme’ counters!!

I wanted to take 1 shade first and now i will be taking 3 more !!!

The new shades have 4-5 shades of peaches,pinks,2-3 lilac,plum,a maroon,and rest as usual browns and nudes!! I liked the fact that this time,the browns are wearable unlike those gaudy ones that were in the earlier collections!!!

For more information check out THIS !!!

???????????????????????????????

PRICE: Rs.225

???????????????????????????????

PACKAGING: The packaging is same as the earlier ones which i find very dull and low !!! However,at the price they come,i think its fine !!

???????????????????????????????

The outer packaging is maroon colored with a matte finish.A golden band in middle with LAKME’ written on it.The shade number is provided at the bottom as well as on the top of the packaging!

SHADE:  The shade number 143 is a gorgeous peach with slight pink tones.It appears to be shimmer free when applied but it has loads of golden micro shimmer in it!!

???????????????????????????????

???????????????????????????????

TEXTURE,FINISH & STAYING POWER: The texture of the lipstick is very creamy.It glides on smoothly on lips.I feel that i needs times to settle on lips as in case of the earlier enrich satin ones.If i swipe it twice,it becomes streaky and uneven which might be due to extreme creaminess.

???????????????????????????????

The shade is decently pigmented and one swipes covers the lips to a great extent.

???????????????????????????????

The lipstick might bleed if over applied and I think it will best suit fair to medium skin tones.

 

After the lipstick settles,it becomes a bit matte.It has the tendency to settle in the lip lines and it does accentuate dry areas of lips.Once applied,you will not notice shimmer in it!!

It is only after the lip color wears off that you can see shimmer se

comes out to be more pink on lips but it is more peach in person!!

comes out to be more pink on lips but it is more peach in person!!

  • creamy.
  • travel-friendly packaging.
  • glides on easily.
  • decently pigmented.
  • reasonably priced.

  • reasonably priced.

???????????????????????????????

CONS:

  • settles in the lip lines.
  • the shimmer also settles in the lips lines and stays after the lipstick wears off.
  • might look streaky on darker complexions.
  • this lipstick might break in hot climate as it is very creamy.
  • average staying power.

RATING: 3/5

RECOMMENDATIONI loved the shade but it takes time to settle and looks uneven if over applied.Glad that Lakme’ has finally added such shades and i would highly recommend trying this range as they are reasonably priced and the shades are very pretty!!!

Stay tuned for more summery shades from Lakme’ Enrich Satin range!!!!

The finish is frost which is mainly due to presence of silver shimmer.I sometimes used it lightly all over my lids and it looks beautiful as only shimmer is prominent then.Th shade isn’t highly pigmented and you have to layer it atleast 2-3 times to get good colour pay off.It appears to be a bit chalky also but it is not!!
