Lakme Lip Love Lipsticks in Rose Kiss, Aphrodite Blush : Swatches, Review, Photos

by mehak on January 4, 2011

in Lakme, Lipsticks

These shiny baubles are not ornaments left over from christmas. These are 2 lip love lipsticks from Lakme – one in Rose kissed (on left) and one in Aphrodite Blush (on right).

Rose Kissed is a rosey pink shade with a jewelled tone to it. The pink is an earthy one so it is a universally flattering tone for all cool, warm tones and specially is a great pink for indian skintones.

Lakme Lip Love Lipstick in Rose Kissed 

Aphrodite Blush is a deep apricot rust- peach colour. A fantastic natural colour for those with darker tones / pigmented lips and a pretty soft coral brown for lighter skin tones. Another colour that is universally flattering for all skin shades

What I like about Lakme Lip Love Lipsticks

  • Some Really Nice , flattering shades available- unlike those aweful dark ones Lakme produces
  • Smooth and creamy to apply and moisturizing on application
  • Similar to MAC lustre finish- they have a slight sheen to them so there is a subtle gloss
  • They last a while…a good four hours 
  • The packaging, at first i thought was cheesy. But now , i love it ! Its shiny and christmassy looking and makes them easy to spot in my makeup drawer.

What i dont like about Lakme Lip Love Lipsticks

  • They do have a tendency to settle into the cracks of your lips after some time
  • After about 2 hours of application, i feel a certain dryness to the lips. To be fair though, i feel that with 80% of the lipsticks. 

Overall Verdict : 3.75 /5
Would i Repurchase: Yes, I love the colours and texture, even thoughh they do dry out on the lips after a bit
Price: Rs 550/

These lipsticks are some of the best ones that have come out of lakme. They last a decent time, they have some nice colours and these two shades in particular are universally flattering. Would definitely recommend them, even though they do dry out after a bit

Ur right about the packaging. I looks like a cheaper version of something that Victoria Secrets would do!

i like the rose-kissed shade so much…the other one is it like nude colour??


PnB January 8, 2011 at 7:10 pm

@SS&G- Umm, yes its nude in the sense that its the colour of my lips, but its not like a nude in the true sense that it takes off any colour from your face. This does add a lot of colour to the face
