Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick Review

Features & Benefits
- Contains Vitamin E
- Contains Olive Oil Extracts
- High color payoff
- Suitable for normal to dry skin
- Available in a range of trendy and exciting shades
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.
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!

These are some of the most popular shades available from this range. Read on to find out how each one performs.
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!
Want to get the hottest pink for this summer? This one’s a bright, coral pink with the right intensity and warm undertones, making it ideal for Indian skin tones. This color does not have any shimmer in it, making it all the more perf!
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.

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.
