Lakme Enrich Satins Lipstick - 137

The lipstick I am test-driving today - Lakme Enrich Satins 137 - a rust-brown-orange mixed colour with a generous dose of shimmer.  Part of the Lakme Fantasy Collection, this lipstick is one of the 8 shades (says the knowledgeable Rati) released some time back.

Cost:  Rs. 225

Swatches:  I have taken a couple of swatches because the shade looks a bit different depending on the light - thanks to the shimmer present in it.

The colour, on it's own, seemed quite pretty.  Past experience with this colour, though, has convinced me that this just does not work for me :(  The lipstick looks a strange orangey colour on me, and not the orange that's quite the favorite among a lot of bloggers right now!

In my opinion, this is a great shade for someone with a lighter skin tone.  As for the consistency and staying power - no complaints.  It stays on about 2-3 hours, and does not dry my lips out.  My only complaint, I like a less frosty finish to my lipstick - but that's just my personal preference..

  6. The latest one is really the most horrid...it sings a little tune and then just switches off when the battery dies...no warning battery low or anything :| So me went back to this N-gage...it's been beaten and dropped and sat upon and every other abuse but still works just fine :D
