What the brand says: Lakme Lip Love Lip Care is a range of dual core lip balms, the first of its kind in India! Lakme Lip Love Lip Care is a little tint with lots of lip care. You can keep your lips moisturized and protected with a combination of a nourishing core along with a hint of tint and SPF 15.
Packaging: The lip balms come in colour coded plastic tubes with transparent caps and are light weight and travel friendly.
Texture: Lip balm has a very smooth and creamy texture which is not at all sticky. Glides easily and the moisturizing layer stays intact.
Shade: There are a total of 9 shades in this range (raspberry is discontinued) and here is a summary on them:
Apricot: This is a peachy orange shade which looks sheer coral on the lips.
Black Currant: This shade has a bit blue undertone so looks transparent on the lips with sheer blue hue.
Caramel: This is a light brown shade which looks sheer-nude on the lips.
Cherry: This is a cherry-red shade which goes on sheer-red on the lips.
Cocoa: Coca is a bit deeper than caramel but looks similar on the lips. This particular balm has very fine granules that has mild exfoliating properties.
Peach: This is a pure peach shade goes on sheer-coral on the lips with a hint of pink.
Strawberry: This is a fuchsia pink shade which look sheer light pink on the lips.
Tangerine: This is a pure orange colour and goes on sheer-light orange on the lips.
Vanilla: Vanilla is pale in colour and looks pale-transparent on the lips. I don’t quite like this one since it looks fake and who would like the whitish cast on lips?
Watermelon: This is a pale pink shade and smells of fresh watermelons! Goes on sheer pink on the lips and make them look plump and healthy.
Mango: This shade looks light orange on the lips.
Fragrance: All lip balms are sweet smelling.
How I use and staying power: I earlier used only normal lip balms which were not tinted but this one looks really good thanks to the sheer natural looking colour. To use, simply swipe 4-5 times for a visible colour and you are done. The moisturizing property stays all day long (you heard me right) even after moderate meals. In case of red and pink shades, even if the lip balm goes away by the end of the day, the tint still remains and makes your lips look flushed and pink which I really like. You can use this under a matte lipstick or over it for a subtle shine. This lip balm is great and cheap and definitely does what a lip balm should.
