Here I come, presenting the Lakme Enrich Satin lipstick 358.
Lakme has launched this range of Enrich satin lipsticks long back where all the shades are named in numbers. Here this lipstick 358 is a rich red shade lipstick with pink undertones.
Product Description: Lakme has launched various shades in the range ‘Enrich Satin’. The shades come in both matte and glossy finishes, and come in an affordable price.
Price and Quantity: Rs 275 for 7gms
Shade: #358 (Red Shade with pink undertones)
PRODUCT AVAILABILITY: It can be easily found over man beauty stores as well as online.
SHELF LIFE: 36months
PACKAGING: The packaging in quite boring. The outer cover is a rich maroon colour with golden border to the brim on the stick. I always like transparent lid packaging as it becomes easier to identify the shade. But with a closed packaging, and especially when the shade doesn’t come with a name.
Colour, consistency & Fragrance/ Texture: The shade #358 is a rich red shade lipstick with pink undertones. The shade gives a matte finish. Though it may not seem to be drying, a lip balm underneath is highly recommended. It has a smooth texture but not creamy and thus doesn’t slide on easily over the lips.
Staying Power: Hardly not more than 2hrs.
Suitable For: For medium to fair skin types, Normal lips.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH Lakme Enrich Satin lipstick 358 I am a pinkish n*de, peach and corals loving person, and red is dead far from me. I never either admired red shade or those who wear it. Ok, now why did I end up choosing this?
I was forced to try the shade(by a fellow blogger), was trying to get convinced that it suited me, was feeling that it was pretty awkward and must be avoided, then was trying to get convinced that it is not that bad, and then finally convinced to snatch it and try for a while!
The best parts of this particular Lakme Enrich Satin lipstick 358 is that, it gives an opaque finish in just one swipe and this can be buildable. The best way I use this Lakme Enrich Satin lipstick 358 is, first I apply a lip balm, and then swipe once over the lips, dab all the excess with a tissue and then build the colour as required.
The staying power might be a huge disappointment as this doesn’t stay more than 2 hrs. At the same time the good part is that it fades away evenly and hence doesn’t leave you look odd. One tip that generally works when applying deep colour lipsticks is to exfoliate the lips. This way, it would be easy for a smooth application and doesn’t allow the lipstick to settle into fine lines.
Overall this Lakme Enrich Satin lipstick 358 comes with a good red matte shade, which is buildable and doesn’t give an odd look, doesn’t settle into fine lines and at the same time has very low staying power and is a bit drying.
