My love for lip-balms is never-ending, no matter how many of them I already have in my kitty! 😛 I like both tinted and non-tinted lip-balms. I picked one lip-balm from lakme, and today I am gonna review the same i.e. Lakme lip love lip care in strawberry. Read on to know my experience-Price- INR 200/-
Shelf Life- 2 yearsAbout- Say hello to Lakme’s newest offering, Lip Love Lip Care – a range of dual core lip balms, the first of its kind in India. Available in 4 flavours – Cherry, Strawberry, Peach and Vanilla. Lip Love is ‘a little tint with lots of love’. Keep those lips moisturized and protected with a winning combination of a luscious creamy core along with a hint of tint and SPF 15. Lakme’s Lip Love tinted sticks are here to make sure you enjoy the best of both worlds!My take on Lakme lip love lip care Strawberry – Lakme is the brand I have been hearing of since ages, and to be honest I have grown up using lakme stuff 😀 , From their nail enamels to lip glosses to nail paint remover to lipsticks I have used them all during my journey of live so far. They launched dual core lip-balms around 6 months back and I couldn’t resist myself from trying these out.
The lip balm comes in a pink-colored twist-up stick that has a clear lid which fits the case tightly with a click; the bullet is bit-slanted just like lipsticks for easy-application. The shade of the lip-balm is written on the bottom of the stick. I loved how all their lip-balm sticks are color-coded. This stick reminds me of elle 18 lipsticks which also have these kinds of cores. The fragrance it carries is very fruity and reminds me of the fragrance present in those fancy-erasers almost all of you would have used during school time.
Since the shade I picked is strawberry the color of lip balm is pink in color with cream-like balmy core. It glides on lips like a dream, doesn’t feel heavy on lips and provides good moisture in just 2 swipes; however the pigmentation is way lesser than my expectation 🙁 . It adds a glossy shine but I am in no way happy with the so called tint it leaves. It contains SPF15 which is a good factor for the ongoing summers. 🙂 The luxurious creamy core moisturizes lips very well and lip-balm stays for like 2 hours easily and then it fades off but the moisture stays intact.What I like about Lakme lip love lip care Strawberry –
- Glides on lips like a dream.
- Contains SPF 15 for sun-protection.
- Fruity fragrance.
- Easily available.
What I don’t like about Lakme lip love lip care Strawberry –
- Priced a little high.
- Need to be swiped lot of times to get the tint. (which is way less)
- The cap can break easily.
- Ingredients not mentioned.
- This shade is not one for those with pigmented lips.
Overall, it’s a good buy as per the price and quality is concerned, however not an apt choice for those who are looking for a lip-balm that actually provides good tint to lips.
