Lakme Enrich Lipsticks Classic No.352 – Cherry

Guest Review by Sristi (Medium Skin tone, Normal to Oily Skin)

One look at celebrities like Gwen Stefani, Angelina Jolie, Rihanna, and you’ve got to wonder how they look so darn stunning in a bright red lipstick . I’ve always wanted to sport red lips, but inevitably shied away, either because it draws unwanted looks or I wasn’t too sure if I’d be able to pull it off. After about a year of thinking and re-thinking, I decided to invest in the most inexpensive red lipstick that I found in the market just to see how the color looks on me. I bought the Lakme Enrich Lipcolor Classic No. 352 in shade Cherry. And, to my pleasant surprise, it turned out to be a decent  investment.

What Lakme Claims?

Product Info – Deep conditioning lipcolor enriched with Vitamin E for softer and smoother lips. Contains strawberry, grape seed, and peach extracts to keep lips nourished and soft. Made in India.

So Lakme Enrich Lipcolor Cherry comes in a sturdy, travel-friendly, though boring packaging. But you can overlook the packaging, considering the fact that they are so very affordable. The lipstick is decently pigmented and you get a nice, opaque coverage in about 2 swipes. It’s not very moisturizing, which is why I’d suggest that you wear it with a lip balm underneath. If you wear it on your bare lips, it has a tendency of settling on the fine lines. But that can be avoided to a certain extent with a lip balm. Texture wise, it’s not very creamy and smooth so it doesnt have that gliding quality that better lipsticks have…definitely needs to improve on the creamy factor !!!

The color is a deep, cherry red. I think Lakme has aptly named it Cherry, since  it is just that. It’s a nice bright red and will suit fair to medium skin tones. They say you should always wear red lipstick with a lip liner for that defined look. I’ve kind of always overlooked this and always wear this lipstick without a lip liner. Doesn’t really make much of a difference, IMO. The lipstick gives a nice, satin-y finish and has no shimmer. It stays for about 3-3.5 hours on my lips with light eating and drinking, after which you feel the need for re-application.

Verdict: B

Price: – Rs. 225/-

Recommendation: – If you are unsure whether red lipstick will suit you or not, then  the Lakme Enrich Lipsticks are good ways to test out shades. This one is a cherry red and shdould look good on fair to medium skintones (Nivedita below mentions that dark skintones look great in it too so there goes). Lakme Lipsticks are well pigmented, but they lack in the texture and longevity department!

Its a great shade! Great review :)


sristi April 23, 2012 at 12:16 pm

Thank you Shivangi!! :)


Nivedita April 23, 2012 at 12:11 pm

This one shade is absolutely a must have in my vanity! I have repurchased this one in the last..umm.. 7 years.. Hey, but I never had issues with the texture. Mine rather glides well and stays put for a considerable time.
I so agree with you and this shade is so universally flattering! You know what? My best friend, who has very dark skin, she also tried it and fell in love ever since. IMO, it would suit any skin type and brighten up the face.
Your lips look gorgeous Sristi!


sristi April 23, 2012 at 12:27 pm

Thanks Nivedita! Its the only red I have and I’m quite happy with it!! On my lips, it doesn’t glide very smoothly w/o a lip balm. So thats why I felt the texture could be improved upon. I somehow felt it wouldn’t look as flattering on dark skin tones. But now that ur friend has tried it, I guess it’ll suit dark skin tones too! Its a great red to start out with!!


mehak April 23, 2012 at 1:20 pm

Ya i agree…i feel like they lack the creaminess of other you know they dont glide as easily as say a mac lipstick or even a revlon colorburst lipstick…


Nivedita April 24, 2012 at 1:34 am

Now, since both of you confirm the texture factor, I can’t vouch for it since I got mine quite a long time ago. But yes, in terms of the creaminess, even Maybelline would beat it, I agree.
Btw, any other red you are planning to get hold of? ( I am a red lipstick addict. Any kind of red and I’m not afraid!!! :B )

the shade is gorgeous !!!!!


lissa george April 23, 2012 at 12:53 pm

mehak April 23, 2012 at 1:12 pm

Hi Lissa…the easiest way is to look at a celebrities photo and put it next to yr photo ..whichever celebrity your skin tone is closest to..tell me that name..and ill tell u your skin tone..
You might also want to know whether you are warm or cool skintone this should help for thaty :


M April 23, 2012 at 3:10 pm

Yeah, these don’t glide that easily…they feel kinda weird on the lips too.


lissa george April 23, 2012 at 3:15 pm
