Packaging : These come in a pretty rose gold cardboard packaging. The tube is a regular, light-weight pink-colored tube, with silver cap. The bottom shows the name of the shade. The applicator brush glides on seamlessly making it easy to apply and reach the corners of lips to give an even finish.

Ingredients : PVP/Hexadecene copolymer, Nylon powder, Cyclomethicon

Texture and Pigmentation : The texture of these lipsticks is really smooth and they glide on the lips pretty easily. Although one swipe gives amazing pigmentation, I usually apply them in two thin layers. It applies without much creasing and patchiness. The texture is extremely light- weight and it feels like you aren’t wearing anything on your lips.

Staying Power : They are non-sticky, smooth and ideal for full-day wear. On the lips, it lasts for about 7 hours, with one full meal in between. As for blush, it lasts for about 4 hours on my skin. If you have oily skin like me, then I would recommend using a powder blush over this cream stain to prolong wear time.

Pink Plush : A bright neon barbie pink shade which, in my opinion, will suit fair skin with cool undertones. I have fair skin with warm undertone, I’m able to pull it off, but only with a strong makeup base. The shade wouldn’t suit most Indian skin tones.

Fuchsia Suede : This is a bright pink shade, a must have if you want to go for darker pinks. This shade has some cool tones to it. You have to be careful while using it as a blush as you can easily go over the top. It would be better to powder it with a compact to tone it down.

  • Gives a soft, velvety finish
  • Strongly pigmented and covers lip imperfections beautifully
  • Does not form a cakey dry layer
  • Luxury formula at prices that won’t break the bank

Cons :

  • None

 

Verdict : A +

Recommendation : I wouldn’t mind experimenting more with these shades as they look wonderful. If you’re someone who prefers not to splurge in this department, give the Lakme Lip & Cheek color a try.
