Lakme Lip Love Lipstick Strawberries&Cream Review,Swatch,Photos
I am going to review this mauve toned brown lipstick shade from Lakme Lip love Lipsticks. I had reviewed Coral Lipstick from this range earlier on blog. The shades I am sharing and wearing these days for the Lipstick challenge on blog are not my regular shades. Though I love wearing berry toned and brown lipsticks but corals,neutral and pinks are my daily favorites. I am moving out of my comfort zone and trying up different shades of browns and reds these days. One such shade is Lakme’s Strawberries & Cream lipstick.
Price:725 INR ( Bought from Amazon.in but currently out of stock)
Here is your scoop
Lakme Lip Love Lipstick Strawberries&Cream Review
Lakme Lip Love Lipsticks are housed in attractive,LOVE labelled reflective red metallic case.Lipstick has regular swivel up mechanism.This is one of the most adorable packaging in Indian Drugstore.LOVE is engraved on the lid ,inscribed on lipstick barrel and on the lipstick bullet.Red lipstick case corroborates Love theme of the collection as the “color of love is red.” Lipstick is travel safe .Strawberries & Cream,Lakme Lip Love is pretty brown lip color with mauve undertones . Lipstick has fine gold and silver shimmer particles. Shimmer is finely milled and gets distributed evenly on lips with lip color. This shade will look beautiful on all skin complexions. It will look exceptionally good on medium and olive skin complexions.
Lakme Lip Love Lipstick has creamy texture and roll on lips hassle free. Texture is not hydrating for the creamy texture.It is not drying either and offers a comfortable wear.Lipstick has average pigmentation and I get complete coverage in 2-3 swipes. Formula is layer able for more uniform and even coverage on pigmented lips.It gives satin-frosty finish with a hint of shine.Shimmer does not look obtrusive bright for day wear. Shimmer does not gain prominence even when the color fades.It transfers on spoons/cups but does not bleed on my lips.It wears for 3-4 hours without looking patchy.
VANILLA RATINGS 7.5/10
Lakme Lip Love Lipsticks are packaged tastefully and look attractive. Formula is creamy but not indulge lips in hydration.I was slightly disappointed as both shade and formula are against the name-Strawberries & Cream. I was expecting it to be shimmer less ,very creamy preparation,strawberry red lipstick which it is not.(I agree this is very personal thought though) I have got two shades from this range. Both the shades I own have average pigmentation. I am not a fan of frost finish either.Wear time is also not incredibly good with this range. Lakme has so many beautiful brown lipsticks in Absolute Range. I will rather suggest choosing Brown lipstick from Absolute/Crease less/Satin collection of Lakme lipsticks.
