Lakme Gypsy Collection Lip Palette : Great Gift for Fussy Moms

by mehak on December 5, 2010

in Lakme, Lipsticks

Yesterday was my moms birthday. My mother is the kind of person, whome it is virtually impossible to buy a gift for. She has very specific choices, and refuses to tell you what she actually wants. Its always ‘ dont need anything baby !’  This time i knew she was out of her Body Shop Moisture Foundation so i got her that. Then i headed to MAC and liked a few lipsticks- but as is always the case with the MAC store near my house, it was sold out.Infact the SA told me ‘All MAC brown lipsticks are sold out” Huhhhh???

Anyway, i ended up getting this Lakme Lip palette as well for her because i figured hey, its not possible for her to hate all 5 shades right? 

Lakme Lip Palette Swatches: Bottom to Top Corresponds to Left to Right on the Palette

Bottom to top in the swatches , and left to right on the Lakme lip palette this is what the shades look like:
A burnt Amber colour  – Great for those brown lipstick fans
A pink toned brown – One of my favourite colours, very natural looking on your lips
A rose pink– My favourite from the Lakme lip palette, its one of those earthy pinks which look great on indian skin . Finding a good pink lipstick is hard !
A terracota colour– Hmm, not sure about this one, the orange undertone didnt really go well on my skin
A deep berry red– For those  of you who dare to wear red , this is a nice deep red option. Might go well with ethnic wear as well.

Texture wise, i cant say that the lipsticks on the Lakme Lip Palette are super moisturizing   but theyr definitely not drying either . So texture wise, somewhere in the middle- good  but not great.

Would i buy this againOverall, I would’nt buy the Lakme Lip Palette for myself because i dont wear too many browns, i stick to pinks and nudes but this has all the colours my mom loves wearing, and she absolutely adores it. Also, if you want to try out a bunch of different colours, without spending a fortune, this might be a good option for you
Price: Rs 600/-

Nice palette. But I gave it a pass because I'm not fond of browns. Wish lakme came up with more combinations or more palettes with corals, pinks etc. Ie the sunny colors.

@nivedita- agree! I don wear browns either, and really wish they would come up with a pink and coral palette

Browns are my favorite this season :) I love the palette. My mom wears nothing but Red :D So this wont be her cup of tea. Thanks for sharing the lovely swatches.

Browns and reds are a staple for all Moms I think. Great idea for a gift! :)
