REVIEW-

The texture of the lipsticks is quite creamy and soft I would say. Some shades do have shimmers in it while the others don’t. It glides on easily on the lips and is pretty moisturising I would say. Haven’t noticed any accentuation of the fine lines.

The shade No.133 was a slighly less opaque and is nude(not a perfect one though)for my wheatish skin color as compared to no.154 which looked really gorgeous for my skin type.

The shade No.133 looks a straight up nude for my skin type …it has slight silver shine to it which in]s evident only on closeup.while the other shade ie- no.154 looks quite opaque on one swipe.

The only downside of these lipstick can be that they are not matte and neither totally glossy.They often tend to melt away when not kept in a cold place(i store them in refrigerator)

STAYING POWER-It stayed on me for a good 3 -4 hours.

TRANSFER-It transfers very little. The shade no.154 stains lips and the stains remains there for a long time and needs to be wiped off with an oil base make up remover.This is not the same for the nude shade ie- no.133

YOU CAN BUY IT FROM-

How to Use

DSCN4924[1]

Ingredients

lakme skin gloss

Shelf Life : 24 months

Color : Light Blue

Smell : Artificial Cologne like Smell

DSCN4945[1]

My experience-To be frank we all love it when our skin glows and I wanted to try skincare products from our very own Indian brand Lakme and hence I got it to see if it lives up to the claims.

The Lakme Skin Gloss Gel Creme is enriched with minerals to hydrate your skin for a healthy glow. Along with moisture for a soft, supple texture, it gives your skin a layer of flawless luster. It is a light glaze with mineral laden glacial water which hydrates to make skin look radiant and moisture coats your skin with gloss. It gives skin soft and supple texture along with a flawless luster.

The Lakme Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Creme has a very lightweight texture and is perfectly named since it is somewhere between a gel and a cream hence has properties of both which is unique. The major gripe I have about it is the strong masculine cologne like fragrance, I mean who would add such strong fragrance in skincare products for women, but thankfully it fades within few minutes of applying it.

It gives an instant cooling sensation upon application which feels so good in this hot weather.It is not moisturising enough for dry patches on skin or even for winters

My skin drinks it up immediately, and it feels super smooth and soft, without feeling heavy, oily or sticky. But mind you it feels greasy if gone overboard, so make sure to apply little quantity. There was little glossy or rather glowy effect on my combination skin, but definitely not as much lakme claims. It provides an excellent base for makeup as well as it makes blending very easy. But my combination skin gets very oily and shiny few hours after applying it,

Thumbs up 👍 –

  • Unique and very attractive packaging.travel friendly
  • Great lightweight and smooth texture which gets absorbed instantly
  • Did not feel oily and heavy on skin
  • Hydrates and moisturizes skin instantly giving a healthy natural glow.can be used in place of face highlighter. i use it that way more often 🙂
  • Makes a great and smooth base for makeup
  • Contains Mineral rich glacial water
  • easily available

Thumbs down 👎 –

• Not moisturizing enough for dry skin types and for winters

  • As lakme claims it to be a day time product, it certainly lacks SPF

Rating– 4/5

Texture-

The texture of this lipstick is thick and super creamy.it is not buttery but feels quite sturdy to use. it will not break or dent with pressure as well.

Pigmentation:

The lipstick is fantastic in terms of pigmentation.It is very opaque and thick and it coats the lips completely. The color is super bright and pigmented, in fact you can try using it like stain or tint

DSCN4986

My experience-

I have to tell you, do not get intimidated by how blazingly pink it looks in the tube; because when you do put it on, it gives this super-perky, super-bright pink colour, and yet looks flattering on everyone. It’s literally as perfect as any bright pink lipstick can ever be!

The lipstick i’m reviewing today was in limited edition of lakme…It has a very unique shade..in the dark the colour of the lipstick looks purplish while in the daytime it’s fuschia pink…and thats the thing i love most about this lipstick!!..

the lipstick might seem a bit dry for people with dry lips so i would recommend a lipbalm under it .

thumbs up 👍 

  • This is a pretty, blue-based pink, which will definitely suit most Indian skin-tones.
  • It brightens & dresses up the face instantly
  • The longevity is excellent, especially at that price.

Thumbs down 👎 –

  • If you have very dry lips, exfoliating before putting this one would definitely help.
  • not available easily

Lakme insta-liner (Water Resistant Eyeliner)

Hi beauties, 🙂
I bought this product beacause it was from a reputed brand “LAKME”. Before using this instaliner ,I didn’t even know the difference between water resistant and water proof
Product Reviewed– Lakme Instaliner
Price: Rs.179 for 9 ml (2.76usd)
Shelf life: 30 months
Ingredient List- not mentioned
Packaging– it’s really not what i was expecting from lakme… 😦 Packaging looks cheap.The product comes in a transparent glass bottle with a sturdy screw type lid..I didn’t even like the brush attached to the cap,it has irregular bristles to it.
What the company claims-
  • Lightweight and comfortable eye make-up for perfect definition
  • Water-resistant formula ensures no smudging or smearing
  • Deep intense color that does not fade.

My experience-
Lakme Insta Liner has deep black color that gives a fine definition to eyes.Mainly the irritating factor in kajal is smudging but with lakme insta liner i have no problem about smudging also to add to it, it stays put for the whole day, sometimes the next day.Though it comes as jet black, it never gives the same shine when dried.Its doesn’t dries soon, so when you apply in your waterline and sneeze(yeah! i did) or do something where your eyes shutter before the liner dries, it gets inside your socket area which is not a pretty sight. Though it have never caused me any irritation when its gets inside the socket region still eyes are too delicate so it is a major con.
Thumbs Up-

-easy to apply

-easy to wipe off
– has a deep black color.
-smudge proof.
-stays on for really long.
– travel friendly.
– affordable price

-jet black in colour

-doesn’t irritates the eye

Thumbs down-

  • i don’t like the look of the packaging.
  • i really hate the bristles of the brush
  • it takes along time to dry out.(more than elle 18 liquid eyeliner

LAKME LIPSTICK-SILVER LIP-ART

Hi beauties :),

The shade which i’m going to review today  is a limited edition one from lakme ….and i have not seen its review anywhere on the internet.

Product – Lakme ultra creme lipstick

SHADE-S102 silver lip art

Price- Rs 200

DSCN4736[1]

Packaging– it comes in square container and travel handy.

DSCN4735[1]

HOW I USE IT-Lakme Silver lip art as highlighter (on cheeks or as eyeshadow highlighter)-

It’s an excellent highlighter. This particular shade is good for medium to dusky skin tones. I use it to highlight my brow bone, cheek bones, nose and chin. It’s very easy to blend, so I can use it anywhere on my face.

Because it’s a pencil, it’s very easy to use it on the Cupid ’s bow. You just dab a little on the arch of you lips and blend with your finger. Awessome results!!!
I reach out for this mainly for highlighting. As it is a pencil, it’s very easy to draw an arch below the eyebrows, or a straight line along the cheek bones, and then you just blend it out. Very precise application!!!

I have never used it as the only lipcolour but this shade can be used for lip conturing as its totally blendable.

DSCN4737[1]

THUMBS UP –

  • long lasting
  • can be used as highlighter
  • can be used for lip conturing
  • shimmery shade
  • water proof
  • affordable price
  • travel friendly
  • sturdy packaging

THUMBS DOWN-

  • limited edition
  • not available online

When it comes to the texture of the gloss, it is thick, smooth and sweet smelling.it has a very sheer finish to it…..more than pigmentation it has shimmer to it .It is kind of sheer ….light application is good for everyday and those who prefer shiny lipglosses! it has a glossy base with pink sparkles added to it.you can quite notice that in the swatch below.i would have preferred more pigmentation to it…

  • It not for hot weather!

Everytime i apply i get an instant brightness to my face like a radiating glow which also look natural even without a base. It works well as a setting powder over any base.Even a small amount of powder can work wonders.
It comes in a large brown color jar, the top of which has five little holes so that you can control the amount of powder. Also a powder puff is supplied with the pack.
