In India, Lakme and lipsticks are almost synonymous. We all have grown up by using Lakme lipsticks and the brand has never failed to amaze us with its attractive shades and high-quality products. Today, I’m going to review one of such Lakme lip products that have long been winning the heart of Indian beauties. So, here is the review of Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick (Shade No. 531). Read on to know further.
About The Brand Lakme
Do I really need to talk about the brand Lakme? It is undoubtedly the most well-known and trusted beauty brand in India. Here is what Lakme has to say about itself:
“Lakmé was the country’s first cosmetic brand to introduce makeup to Indian women and takes pride in being the expert on Indian Beauty for over 50 years. It is a complete beauty brand spanning a wide range of innovative, high performance and world class color cosmetics & skincare products while extending its beauty services through the network of Lakmé Beauty Salons.

The full ingredient list is not available on the packaging, which is really disappointing and unacceptable from a well-admired brand like Lakme. However, the active ingredients present in the lipstick are olive extracts, vitamin E, Octyldodecanol, Cetearyl Octanoate, and Ethyl Cellulose.

Even before a few years, the Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick used to come in the very boring and traditional Lakme packaging, which I hated completely. It was very difficult to identify the shade from outside the case of the lipstick. The plastic used in that old Lakme packaging was good and there was a golden-colored bullet inside. But I always wished if Lakme would have renovated the packaging for this product.
Well, my wish has come true and the new Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick comes in a whole new avatar! The packaging is now made of transparent plastic with the logo of the brand embossed in it. It allows us to identify the shade quite easily. The bullet inside is a silver-colored one, which really looks cool. Overall, the packaging is pretty sturdy and travel-friendly. And most importantly, it looks really beautiful!
Look And Feel
The texture of the Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick is as soft and smooth as butter. Being super creamy, it glides over the lips like a dream without causing any tugging or pulling. The product is highly moisturizing and there is absolutely no need of a lip balm underneath it. It gives the lips a beautiful satin finish while keeping them well-moisturized and soft for a long period of time. It comes with a typical Lakme aroma (a sweet floral fragrance) that fades away after an hour or so. However, it can be a little bothersome to women with sensitive noses.

My Take On Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick (Shade No. 531)
Lakme has a wide range of lip colors and they all have different qualities. This Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick is the most basic range of lipstick from the brand and I will be talking about Shade No. 531 today.
The color of the lipstick is muddy brown when seen through the bullet as well as the swatch. However, it turns into a beautiful nude shade on the lips. All the colors available in this range of Lakme are flattering and they are very much customized to Indian skin tones. This color, in particular, will suit medium to dusky skin tone very well. It feels neither sticky nor heavy on the lips and hence, is very comfortable to wear.
The pigmentation of the lipstick is also very good. It is highly pigmented and just a single swipe of the product is enough for a strong, payoff. You can always build up the color and get more coverage by laying the lipstick on. The staying power of the product is also quite good. It stays on my lips for a good 3-4 hours with meals in between. You may experience a little fading over time but that is completely normal.
However, the lipstick transfers a lot onto glasses, cups, etc. Hence, make sure that you blot it carefully right after the application. Also, you may need to use an oil-based makeup remover to remove it fully from your lips.

Start applying the lipstick from the center of the lips. For a more defined look, use a lip liner of the same color. Layer more for more coverage.
