It poured on for continuously 2 hours and I reached college with my jeans drenched upto my knees! And look outside now, it has gone back to being sunny and sweaty. Delhi weather is so unpredictable like a pregnant women’s late night snacking cravings! :D :D
Even though I’d promise myself not to splurge onto more lippies, but that’s the first thing I want when I come across any cosmetics counter! So today, I shall be reviewing The Lakme Enrich Matte lipstick in the shade PM14. Without further adieu, let’s begin.
Price: INR 295 for net weight of 4.7 grams
Packaging: Lakme had some time back launched the new packaging for their Satin Enrich lipsticks. The same bullet encapsulates the Enrich Matte range. The lipstick is of cool toned silver color while the lid is a transparent plastic which has the lipstick name imprinted. The packaging is no doubt classy and sturdy.
Shade: The shade PM14 is a soft nude pink which is apt exclusively for fair to medium skin tone. It can be used for formal occasions; I applied it on the day of my presentation in college. Did I acquire extra marks for it? Well, blame the little mishap wherein her mood got ruined! This color would look lovely with smokey eye or heavy eye makeup. If you wanna keep your makeup look subtle; go ahead buy this for sure!
Texture: This lipstick has soft texture and it glides onto the lips easily. Initially I had my doubts about it being matte. But after the interval of 5 to 10 minutes, it does set into a matte finish and feels lightweight. I’d say the texture is similar to the Rimmel’s Kate Moss lipsticks (read the review here).
My Experience: When I first applied this lipstick, it felt smooth and hydrating. It took comparatively more time to set because I’ve lately been into liquid lipsticks and they dry much faster. Post settling, the lipstick turns matte but does not feel stretchy. After some time, I noticed that it settled within the fine lines so you definitely need to exfoliate and moisturize your lips for rocking this lipstick. After 2 hours, it fades out and it might not always be in an even manner. So what then? Reapply my beautiful ladies!
Longevity: The staying power of this lipstick is approximately 2 hours but without snacks or drinks. If you’d end up having a meal, the lipstick is gonna be completely wiped out by the last morsel. It does transfer too; slightly once it sets. By the way I'd suggest, leave your trails all over your coffee mug so that no one else sips away from it! *wink*
Until Next Time,
