Lakme Lip Love Lip Care Review
Fall in love with Lakme’s new offering – the Lip Love Lip Care is a range of dual-core lip balms, the first of its kind in India. It’s a little tint with lots of lip care. Keep your lips moisturized and protected with a combination of a nourishing core along with a hint of tint and SPF 15.
Features And Benefits
- Super moisturizing balm
- Luxuriously creamy core that nourishes your lips
- Swirl of color for a hint of tint
- SPF 15 to protect your delicate lips from sun damage
- Available in a variety of shades
- Delightful fragrance
All of the shades come in majorly cute packaging. It’s a colored, plastic twist-up stick with a transparent cap. The color of the stick represents the shade. Also, the shade name is written at the bottom of the stick. On the whole, it’s attractive, sturdy, and travel-friendly.
My Experience With Lakme Lip Love Lip Care
I love a good tinted lip balm, especially during those times when my lips are a little chapped and are crying out for moisture and some color. I was pretty excited to try out the Lakme Lip Love Lip Care lip balms when I saw them at the store. For starters, they looked really cute, and it said “tinted sticks with creamy centers” on the outer cardboard, which aroused my curiosity to see how this works. Here’s my experience!
Texture And Fragrance
The Lakme Lip Love has a creamy consistency, and its texture is buttery smooth and balmy. It glides onto my lips easily, leaving them soft and supple. Coming to its fragrance, it smells like sweet candy. The smell is not overpowering, and it fades after some time of application. Also, it does not feel tacky on the lips as it’s a non-sticky balm.
It stays on for about four hours without any eating or drinking. However, my lips feel moisturized all day long. However, it can’t survive meals – but you can always re-apply it whenever necessary.
Does it heal chapped lips? Yes, it does leave your lips feeling nourished even after the lip balm fades away. The intensity of the tint varies from shade to shade. Also, it does not sit heavy on the lips.
Lakme Lip Love Lip Care Shades
These tinted lip balms are available in ten shades named after delicious ice cream flavors.
This is a beautiful red-pink shade and is the most pigmented shade from this range. It’s ideal for daily wear or for the times you feel the need to add a flush of red to your lips. It leaves your lips moisturized with a glossy finish.
This strawberry shade is a pure baby pink tint. The pink is slightly blue-based. It looks very natural when applied to the lips. You can swipe some on when you’re heading out to the grocery store for some moisture to your lips and sun protection!
This is a clear balm with no color. You can use this shade underneath your lipstick to hydrate your lips or over a matte lipstick if you want it to look glossy. When applied alone, it leaves a whitish cast on the lips – just a heads up.
This shade is a beautiful nude brown that looks great on all skin tones. It’s not very pigmented, but it leaves you with this slight tinge of color – perfect for the days you want a neutral lip color but don’t want to go for lipstick.
This shade comes with medium pigmentation. Its bullet is a bright pink-red, but it looks like a very sheer pink when applied to the lips. If you want a natural look, this one will do the trick, and it also smells wonderful.
- Nourishes and hydrates lips
- Contains SPF 15

How To Use Lakme Lip Love Lip Care?
- Exfoliate your lips well before you go in with any lip product.
- Twist up the stick, so the lip balm is visible.
- Work from the center towards the outer edges of your lip, following the contours of your mouth.
- Glide across the entire bottom lip.
It’s best to apply this evenly and liberally as often as needed.
Shelf Life: 24 months
Will I Recommend Lakme Lip Love Lip Care?
If you’re looking for a tinted lip balm that’s budget-friendly and easily available in India, this one’s a great option. However, if you’re expecting an outstanding color payoff, this does not do justice as its “tint” is extremely sheer. I would not recommend it to those of you with pigmented lips. All things considered, this one’s a quite mediocre product, but bearing in mind the low price, this is all it has to offer.
A tinted lip balm is a savior when it comes to healing dehydrated lips that are also in need of some color! Also, if you’re new to makeup and are intimidated by lipstick, tinted lip balms always make a good start. That was my review of the Lakme Lip Love Lip Care range. Have you tried this lip balm yet?
