I have a huge collection of lip balms 😛 I love hoarding them! This was one such random impulsive purchase and now I feel like getting all the other shades in this as well 😛 Read on to know about my love for this tiny little thing that has taken away my heart <3
The Lakme lip love conditioner is quite an old product, I have since 7-8 months almost but have used it less because of all new products that I keep buying. But recently I’ve been using this a lot and have really fallen in love with it completely!
This comes in a tiny lip balm pot with the actually product in the shape of a heart inside it. Packaging wise, it is absolutely adorable and an amazing gift to gift a girl 😉
I have personally never seen a better packaged lip balm! With the hearts and all, it’s bound to win a girl’s heart 😉
The pot has a screw on type lid which is red and metallic and looks great! The pot itself is simple transparent plastic. The packaging is very light and can sit inside your handbag comfortable without opening up or anything. It shuts tightly and is totally travel friendly.
But well, it’s a pot and we all know, they’re not the most hygienic to use! personally, I don’t mind lip balms in pots, but this one kindof gets messy but then had this been in some other packaging, would it be so adorable still? Nooo 🙁
One more small problem with the packaging is that there is no sticker or mention of the name or shade on the pot.
These are essentially tinted lip balms with an extremely soft and gooey texture! It remains soft even in winters. The texture is very nice. One thing I love about the texture is that it doesn’t feel sticky at all on lips. But that compensates on the staying power. This wears off from my lips in maximum 2 hours. 🙁 But lips remain soft after that too.
The tint of this lip balm is quite good. It’s not very pigmented and gives a sheer glossy finish with decent amount of tint on lips. The tint is perfect for daily wear to college or office or just to the market! 🙂 the finish looks very pretty and natural on lips!
Talking about the moisturization, this doesn’t give rich moisture but it makes lips very soft and supple. My lips look very healthy once this wears off. But it’s not moisturizing enough to heal chapped lips.
Since the finish is glossy and the balm doesn’t really get absorbed or anything, this transfers easily onto cups etc.
The lip balm has a vanilla-ish caramel/toffee scent and the scent lingers on lips for a few seconds. I really love this scent 😀
The shade that I have here, Flirt, is a pinkish coral which has more of pink and very little coral. It’s a very pretty shade and looks very natural and pretty on lips.
These lip balms are said to be dupes for MAC tinted lip conditioner(Rs.1000). I’ve tried the MAC one at the store once and I would say the texture felt very very similar! So, you can try this Lakme one at, like, 1/5th the price but the quantity of MAC is 15ml!
It’s quite reasonably priced I feel for the good quality and quantity and you wont regret having this with you!
Overall, it’s an adorable tinted lip balm! Softens lips and gives a nice natural wash of colour. Affordable and easily available. Highly recommended!
