The complete ingredient list is not available on the packaging, which is 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, the Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick used to come in the very dull and traditional Lakme packaging, which I hated completely. It was tough to identify the shade from outside. 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 brand’s logo embossed in it. It allows us to identify the shade quite easily. The bullet inside is a silver-colored one, which looks fantastic. Overall, the packaging is pretty sturdy and travel-friendly. And most importantly, it looks really beautiful!

Look And Feel
The Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick texture 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 for a lip balm underneath it. It gives the lips a beautiful satin finish while keeping them well-moisturized and soft for an extended period. 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 an essential lipstick range 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 and 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. Moreover, it feels neither sticky nor heavy on the lips and is very comfortable to wear.
The pigmentation of the lipstick is also excellent. It is highly pigmented, and just a single swipe of the product is enough for an intense payoff. Of course, 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 minor 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 entirely from your lips.
