Lakme Pop Tints Swatches & Preview (Full Review will Come Soon)

I FINALLY managed to get my hands on these elusive Lakme Pop Tints . I say elusive, because women in India seem to have gone a bit wonky with these pop tints, they are sold out freaking everywhere !! It’s like women are having one big party with these crayon pencils and i can see why. On first impressions, im loving these- they are like chubby pencils with great pigmentation (one-two swipes to opaque), they are super smooth in application and give a nice, semi glossy finish. Perfect for summer !! Full, detailed review to follow  soon but for now enjoy swatches of two popular shades of Lakme Pop Tints!

You would think that the market is now over flooded with chubby crayons, but i still feel like there is a gap in the market which these Pop Tints fill in. Cliniques Chubby Sticks are more or less just balms, Revlon Just Bitten are more like stains, Colorbar Take me as i am lip colors are the only competition in this pigmented category, and since Lakme decided to make these glossy and not satin or mattes, these have got a slight bit of an edge for summer. Summer= dewy makeup and glossy lips according to me !

These retail for  a price of INR 800 which is pretttttyyy high considering these come from Lakme, but i guess they have kind of jumped on the chubby crayon bandwagon and since everyone seems to be pricing their crayons like a high end brand, Lakme followed suit..which is dissapointing. Give me some time till i test out the wear, but for those who really wanna try it out quickly, i definitely like these in terms of first impression!

Berry Pink is beautiful!


Sukanya May 26, 2013 at 12:21 pm

I am in dual minds about buying them ! The colors are fun n love that they are not just ‘balms’ .But with 190 bucks more, i get a mac lippi (which is a different matter altogether..but still)

Yeh i totslly gt it 800 bux is a bit insane


Maliha May 26, 2013 at 12:36 pm

These look exactly like the Soap and Glory Sexy mother pucker gloss sticks but yeah these are probaably much cheaper.


mehak May 26, 2013 at 11:03 pm

Love that name: Sexy Mother Pucker!


Embellished May 26, 2013 at 12:48 pm

They look amazing! But 800 bucks sounds like a little too much for Lakme.

Nice shades but I feel they are overpriced when Revlon has similar kind of product in 200 bucks lesser!


Krithi May 26, 2013 at 5:42 pm

but im not gone spend 800 for these cryons ….i decided to skip :)


Richa Saxena May 26, 2013 at 7:41 pm

Yea I agree…These seem to be really great but 800 bux is a lil too much…


Sumathi May 26, 2013 at 8:02 pm

The colours are very pretty.. The price stops me from getting these..


mehak May 26, 2013 at 11:03 pm

I think thats the scene with everyone. They should have targeted th 550 proce point


Sophia Jerald May 26, 2013 at 8:59 pm

I have been lusting after this pink for a while but the price has still kept me back :(


Bhumika May 27, 2013 at 2:22 am

I got Pink Sorbet..berry pink is pretty..loving them too..but surely hate the price :( Whenever a brand appoints Kareena as their ambassador, the prices shoot up :/


Anupama May 28, 2013 at 8:02 am
