Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick Review

With the added goodness of Olive Oil and Vitamin E, keep your lips feeling satin smooth all day long. Steal the show with an intense, vibrant pout! Brought to you from the Lakme Classics range, these long-lasting lipsticks are available in versatile shades to suit every Indian skin tone.

Features & Benefits

From the age-old boring maroon lipstick tube, the packaging has been revamped to a see-through case. Its transparent cap helps in locating the specific color in my lipstick stash.  The shade’s number is printed at the bottom of the case on a sticker. Coming to the case, it’s fairly sturdy, and it locks tightly, making it easy to carry around in your purse. The lipstick case comes in an outer cardboard carton. However, there’s no complete ingredient list mentioned anywhere.

My Experience With Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick: Review

Looking at the wide array of shades available in this range, I was extremely keen on trying some of these out, especially because I was attracted to their super-wearable satin finish. I picked up two shades – P143 and R365 – the first one is a peachy coral and the second is a warm orange. Here’s what I observed!

Texture & Fragrance

The texture of the lipstick was extremely smooth, and it applied easily without tugging or pulling on my lips. As it leaves you with a satin finish, these are quite moisturizing – so you don’t really need to go in with a lip balm before applying the color. It keeps the lips hydrated through its wear time and also plumps the lips to a certain extent.
The fragrance is the typical Lakme fragrance – a sweet floral smell that fades after some time of application, but if you’re sensitive to smell, you might find it a little nauseating.

Pigmentation & Efficacy

The pigmentation of these lipsticks is so impressive! These are highly pigmented, and one swipe gives you a strong, opaque payoff.  You can increase the intensity of the color according to your preference by carefully layering the lipstick. I must say though; it has a tendency to transfer onto cups and glasses, so blotting is a must. However, these don’t feel sticky or heavy on the lips and are easy and comfortable to wear.

Staying Power

These lipsticks stay on for a good 3-4 hours while subtly fading as time passes by and also with the intake of snacks. However, they leave behind a good stain which stays on until you actually remove it with an oil-based makeup remover. Touch-ups aren’t an issue as these are very simple to re-apply on-the-go!

Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick Shades

These are some of the most popular shades available from this range. Read on to find out how each one performs.

This shade is a deep plum pink with an intense color payoff. It instantly perks up your face and suits most skin tones. It’s perfect to wear during the day.

This one’s a very pretty peachy shade and is perfect for the summer or spring. It also has very fine shimmer and adds glamor to any look that you’re pulling off.

If you like soft pinks, this one’s a sheer pink that is perfect for daily wear. It leaves your face with a dewy, dreamy look. Also great when you want to go in with the no-makeup makeup look.

P149 is a bright, flashy fuchsia pink. It has fine shimmer particles which are only visible on the bullet and not when you actually put it on – which is the dream.

This one’s a sultry plum color with fine shimmers in it. It’s perfect for evening wear and special occasions! It looks particularly fabulous on dusky skin tones.

P158 is a deep coral shade with a lot of pink undertones. It’s pretty much that ‘carrot red’ shade, and it looks so feminine! You can wear it during the day to brighten up your face on lunch dates and movies!

If you like a good old Barbie pink, this one’s for you. It’s slightly cool toned and can washout your medium skin tone. This is best suited for fair skin tones.

This is a bright, vibrant pink with strong red undertones. It’s a very festive color and is great for evening wear. Any skin tone can pull off this color, and it will instantly amp up your look.

This is a pretty pastel pink shade and will suit fair to medium skin tones. The only downside is its shimmer that tends to transfer around the lips.

A rose pink shade that does not contain any shimmer! It will complement every skin tone beautifully and will make you look fresh and glowing.

An orangey-coral shade which isn’t too bright and looks stunning on fair to medium skin tones.

This one’s a cool-toned brown shade with purple undertones. It’s not for everyone, but if you’re looking to try something new, this could be it. It’s suitable for fair skin tones as it might washout medium skin tones.

If you like a good old light brown shade, this shade makes for a good neutral color.

This is a metallic copper shade and looks different in varied lighting conditions. If you’re a fan of shimmery lipsticks, this is something you can try out.

How To Use This Product?

  1. Stretch your lips and start from the center moving towards the corners of your lips.
  2. Blot the lipstick with a tissue.

For a detailed explanation, read the lipstick tutorial.

Professional makeup artist and beauty blogger J. Pana states, “ These Lakme satin lipsticks pair well together with lipliner and glosses. For a fun, non-traditional way to apply them, I encourage everyone to try an ombre lip at least once in their makeup routines. To start, you’ll need two shades with a similar undertone. The darker of the two should be applied toward the outer corners of the lip, starting at approximately one inch from the corner and then all the way to the corner. The lighter shade should then be placed in the center of the lip, approximately one inch. Then with your finger or a lip brush, you can blend the area where the two shades meet.”

Shelf Life: 24 months

Will I Recommend This Product?

Yes! I would repurchase this product, and I highly recommend you to try it if you like the whole semi-matte, satin finish. It will give you a long-lasting color without drying out your lips. Although this range has its flaws, the most significant being they tend to transfer – what you should put into view is that all satin lipsticks aren’t entirely transfer-proof.

The Lakme Enrich Satin Lippies easily fall into the category of the best affordable lipsticks in the Indian market with a whole lot of shades to choose from for every skin tone.

There’s something incredibly attractive about lipstick that slips on like satin and sets like velvet on the lips. That was our elaborate review of the Enrich Satin Lipsticks from Lakme. Did you try any of the shades from this range? What did you think? Let us know in the comments section below.
