Review: Lakme Enrich Lipstick - 138

Part of the Lakme Fantasy collection which came some time back, the shade 138 is a dark wine-like colour that I wouldn't really have picked up on my own.  That said, I guess it can be carried off by some people - I had this friend in office who is about the same shade as I am, and she used to wear these dark colours and look amazing!

The shade to me seems like a wine shade with a lot of silver frost/shimmer in it.  I am not a big fan of the frost finish.  It's a darker colour, but the swatches look different depending on how the light falls on my hand, mostly because of the shimmer.  It has a bit of a brown to it, and in fact seems a bit brown on my lips as it fades off.

I tried this shade twice.  It didn't dry my lips out and lasted about 2-3 hours.  Even when it did disappear after my lunch, it left a slight tint on my lips which was quite nice.  I am not very bothered by smells in lipsticks, and this has a slight fruity smell (it seemed fruity to me!) that is quite okay.

The only problem I had was, as I said, the shimmer.  It's not a finish I generally pick up, plus I somehow manage to get shimmer all around my lip area :|  :|  My personal likes/dislikes apart, the quality of the lipstick is quite decent.  It claims to provide sun protection and does not dry my lips out.

Cost: Rs. 225

  11. Same to same Rads,I cant wear glasees coz of migraine and I am still skeptical about lenses. If you have no contacts then you really have very very nice eyes Rads :-*

  12. Ritika..does wearing contacts make a difference to how the eyes look??? I really don't know..so asking...

  13. Actually Rads, there are 2 types of lenses,one normal lenses which can be coloured or not and the other type is the circular lenses which tend to make your eyes look bigger (like the lenses Lady Gaga had in her Bad Romance video) Hope you can visualize :/ My friend's family owns this opticians ka buisness ,so she keeps updating me with new new things :P

  14. Oh..I think I read somewhere..and am not even sure if it's true/accurate..a lot of Japanese makeup models tend to wear these lenses to make their eyes look big....

  21. you looking sooooo cute! i too dislike frost lipsticks on me... they make me look ill :(

  22. I have problems with the shimmer traveling all around :D

    ReplyDelete
  23. but you did carry i well.... no way of keeping shimmer in check kya?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hmm..no..the thing is..at least with this lipstick..it travels around only because I would have accidentally touched my lips...the other day I was out the whole day, and I didn't really get back home with a shimmery face..so it's okay..but with some other lipsticks I have (a Loreal Color Riche) it travels around no matter what I do..I tried a lipliner to see if that keeps it in..but didn't really help :|

  25. And I think darker ppl can wear this colour quite okay..plus the colour itself..isn't as scary dark as it seems in the tube :D
