Lakme Pop Tints Review: Berry Pink!

If you ever went to Baskin & Robbins, knowing  full well which exact flavour you want, but still pretended to taste all the flavours they have gimme a high five !!! I know everytime i go i will have either  Mint chocolate chip or Chocolate Mousse Royale but a trip to B&R is incomplete without trying Very Berry Strawberry  yet again !! That is what this Lakme Pop Tint  in Berry Pink reminds me of- swirls of pink and gold that melt in your mouth (I didnt really eat the Pop tint, ….im just saying).

Berry Pink, is Berry Berry pretty. Sorry i couldnt resist. But yes, its basically a pretty, neutral mid tone rose pink that Indian girls seem to love !! A dusty pink that will flatter the deeper skintones as much as the lighter ones and one of those effortless colors that you can just throw on and forget about.

If you are wondering what the hell these pop tints are, they are basically  fancy sounding lip colors in chubby stick form (That is so berry common these days haan?) . Akin to their cousins Take me as i am lipcolors, they basically provide lipstick like pigmentation , good coverage and good hydration all rolled up into one pudgy, cute little stick thingie.  Sounds great right? It is, except for a few minor things. First of all, these dont fade evenly…so after about 2-3 hours you have uneven patches of  pop tints residue you feel berry berry annoyed. Secondly, they dont really apply very evenly either – this is something that differs from shade to shade and Berry Pink suffers from a slight degree because of that.


  • Good Lipstick Like Pigmentation
  • Glides Smoothly
  • Keeps Lips Hydrated and Soft
  • Gives a nice, sheeny finish- like that of a mix between a satin and a lustre finish.


  • Fades unevenly, and can apply unevenly as well
  • Doesnt last for more than 3 hours or so.
  • 800 Rs is a bit of a ridiculous price tag.




Verdict: B+

Price: Rs 800/-

Recommendation: Lakme Pop Tint in Berry Pink is a pretty neutral rose pink that will flatter dusky , medium tone and lighter skin tones with absolute ease. Pop tints are decently pigmented, they give good color coverage, are hydrating and glide on smoothly. Thye could use some improvement in the finish department- they do tend to go on a bit unevenly and when they fade they fade unevenly as well.  These aren’t bad, but for the price, you may want to spend elsewhere!

The colour is pretty, but still I would control myself from getting them cos they are quite pricy.. The pigmentation is better than the revlon ones though.. For this price I’d go for some lipsticks…

For The Price, I Really Would Like To Spend Somewhere Else :-s

yup.. a bit expensive

the color is pretty but they tend highlight the problem areas of lips which should be covered with a lipstick

You are right, I tried it too, and it gave me an uneven effect on the lips. The price is too high too!

lakme products are getting way too expensive…i hate that specially when they dont deliver.. :/


Niesha June 24, 2013 at 6:03 pm

Pretty color though it is pricey and sadly can’t fully justify the price!
Looks pretty on your lips!

Very berry strawberry is one my favorites too..Had a whole tub of mint chocolate chip recently(guilty !) I have never understood why lakme products are priced so high it that they are thinking they can position the brand differently if it is priced high ?!


Swati June 24, 2013 at 6:26 pm

This is such a pretty shade!! Why is a lakme product this expensive though? :(
[also the mint chocolate chip ice cream is ahhhmazzing :) :)]


Mallika June 24, 2013 at 8:15 pm

Those are my exact fav flavors at BR!! Coincidence much!! :P
Might give these pop tints a skip though….tad bit expensive!!


Atreyee June 24, 2013 at 9:54 pm

Pricey indeed, but I am kinda falling for the colour…berry berry tempting indeed. lol! ;)


KRITI June 24, 2013 at 10:13 pm

ah….pinks are favourite….gonna try this out


Nivedita June 25, 2013 at 2:46 am

Spending elsewhere is what I felt. Even though I was drawn towards these for the cute packaging, I was like ‘seriously’?!!

How do they compare vis a vis Revlon Balm Stains? Rs 800 seems way to steep for them. Revlon Balm Stains at rs 600/- are great..


xuvious June 25, 2013 at 11:53 am

I really like this colour! But I won’t be buying another lip tint, I need to stop this madness! ;)


thedelhibride June 25, 2013 at 6:44 pm

even I’ve been buying tinted lip balms non stop! :p need to stop!


Tanmayee June 27, 2013 at 10:05 pm

Nice shade, but I like the revlon crayons more :)
