Review –  

I was sent three shades of the Lakme Lip Love Lip balms for reviewing, namely Raspberry, which is a pink shade, Tangerine, a coral orange shade and Black Currant, a Purple Shade.

The packaging is lightweight and its easy to identify the color inside from the packaging itself.

The lip balms are creamy and hydrating and keep the lips moisturized for a couple of hours and re-application may be needed accordingly.

The color pay off however is not very strong but is decent. Raspberry does give a pinkish tinge to the lips while Tangerine is the most pigmented and gives a nice orange finish to the lips. Black currant however, might excite you when you see it at the store but you will not get purple lips because its the least pigmented and just adds a slight tinge of purple which is not very noticeable. My lips have blue undertones so this sadly did not add any color to my lips. These are lip balms so it would also be unfair to expect a lipstick like color pay off from them. The have added SPF 15 which good. Raspberry smells sweet, and very berry like. Tangerine has a sour, citrus scent and Black Currant smells like grapes.


Pros – 

  • Hydrating
  • Contains SPF
  • Lightweight and easy to carry
  • Creamy Core adds extra moisture to the lips.


Cons – 

  • Color pay off is not very strong, especially in Black Currant, the purple shade

My Lips have a blue undertone. All swatches on the Lips have been done without applying any primer or base. Color pay off may vary depending upon lip undertone and base applied.
