Lakme is by far one of my most favorite makeup brands. They have improved their quality immensely over the years and they always come out with products that not only perform well but are also reasonably priced especially their Enrich range. The latest addition to the range is the Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon priced at Rs 185 only!
Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon is a newly formulated lip color crayon, for a soft texture and smooth matte finish. Get soft and colorful lips every day, in 10 different shades of your choice. The Lakme Enrich Lip Crayons contain a high level of mineral powders, giving your lips a soft matte finish. It also contains a rich mixture of olive oil and jojoba oil which condition your lips.
The packaging is cute and colorful and looks very much like coloring crayons. I would have liked them to have a twist-up packaging to avoid wastage since they are anyway quite small but no luck. For a limited period, Lakme is giving a sharpener with each Lip Crayon which comes in quite handy.
There are 10 shades in this range mostly in the bright red and pink family. I was sent a PR package with five shades but unfortunately, two of them turned out to be the same so I can show you swatches of only four. In terms of texture, they are very smooth to apply, have moisturizing properties and feel comfortable on the lips. Lakme says these give a matte finish but it is not a flat, dry matte but a slightly creamier one.
The darker and brighter colors are more pigmented and need only one swipe to go opaque. Cinnamon Brown goes on sheerer and needs multiple swipes. Staying power is average. Around two hours on me.
Here are the shades that I have:
- 01 Berry Red – True red
- 03 Candid Coral – Coral/orange
- 07 Shocking Pink – Pink with red undertones
- 09 Cinnamon Brown – Soft brown
These are the swatches. From L-R – Berry Red, Candid Coral, Cinnamon Brown, Shocking Pink.
