Who doesn’t love a Lakme Lipstick? Lakme has introduced a lot of new products.The recent one being a liquid lipstick.
LAKME FOREVER MATTE LIQUID LIP COLOUR
The Packaging is very basic. There is no outer packaging or even a plastic wrap around it. It comes with a label stuck partly over the tube and the cap of the lipstick. So when you open it it gets cut. Make sure the label is intact & not cut when you purchase yours so that your certain it’s not a used one.The lipstick comes in a transparent plastic tube. This way you can see the exact shade of the lipstick.

Shade name & number is on the base as well as the cap of the lipstick tube.
The applicator is long & slim. Found it very easy to apply the lipstick. It glides on well. Was very comfortable to apply in the corners of my lips as well as outline it.This is a standard doe foot applicator with a slant on one side. Has a well in between on one side which holds ample amount of product. The wand in this one does not bend & is pretty stiff. Still it does apply beautifully.
Neither liquidy nor thick.
Feels a tad bit tacky in the corners or when you purse your lips but not in a bothersome way and not uncomfortable.
Applies very well
Does not get clumpy with multiple layers
Dries down well
Its not very drying on the lips
Transfer & smudging is very minimal
Lasts for 6 to 7 hrs
Slightly tacky or sticky
No ingredient list available any where on the packaging.
This lipstick is super pigmented & does leave a stain behind which I do like. You always have some color on your lips even when the actual lipstick fades away. It does fade away beyond 6 -7 hrs. It does break down when you eat especially oily food. This typically happens from the center of your lips. It does transfer and smudge a bit.
The formula is not drying but if you have super dry lips then you know the drill….”PREP YOUR LIPS”
Applying a lip balm sure will alter the way the lipstick looks and feels, but hey that’s a personal choice.
Overall I really like this very affordable, super pigmented & very comfortable to wear liquid lipstick from lakme.
It’s pretty easy to remove the lipstick itself, but not the stain it leaves behind :). You do need to remove it with a makeup remover or a micellar water. And don’t forget to double cleanse ! Cannot stress more on this very crucial step of makeup removal.
