For someone like me, who has spent a fair amount of time exploring and analyzing the cosmetic products suited for my skin, it isn’t easy to consider something new unless and until its worth the effort. This neophobia is not just confined to cosmetics and clothing alone but also manifests as the unwillingness to try new things or break from routine.
Makeup is a way of expression and all of us have, to some extent,confined our identity to certain shades. I have also fallen prey to this and when it comes to lipsticks, I mostly stick to browns and reds. However, every once in a while we all come across something, which challenges us to think beyond the conventional boundaries that we have set for ourselves. There is nothing like catching yourself in a vibrant shade once in while which persuaded me to break this pattern and try the lipstick shade PM 15 from Lakme’s Enrich Matte Range
Lakme Enrich Matte Lipstick covers your lips with pure, intense color in a smooth matte finish. Take your pick from shades that were designed to suit Indian skin tones.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
Price : INR 295 for 4.7 g
Availability : At leading stores and online at Amazon & Nykaa
The lipstick comes in a sturdy silver color packaging with a transparent cap. The see-through cap enables you to figure out the shade from outside and makes it easier to choose from the different shades in the same range. The cap shuts securely (with a click) thereby avoiding any chances of spillage, making it travel-friendly.
The shade PM 15 is a bright fuschia pink shades which instantly brightens the face and will suit fair to medium skin tones. It’s a completely matte shade and is devoid of any sheen or shimmer. Although, it’s slightly moisturizing I wouldstill recommend that ones with dry lips exfoliate and use a lip balm underneath so as to avoid it from settling into fine lines and cling to the dry patches. You can expect it to adorn your lips for a good 4-5 hours before it starts fading leaving a pinkish stain. The only drawback about this lipstick is it’s strong medicinal smell, which reminds me of “Benadryl”. Those with sensitive noses can avoid this one as the smell lingers on for a while.
