Lakme Aqua Shine Lipcolor ~ Review


What it is? A lipstick, lip balm and lip gloss all in one, with a soft spongy tip applicator.



Shade ~ 'Old Rose'
Price ~ Rs.395


Applied a bit thickly


I think I have found a Lakme product I like enough to buy again. Aquashine Lip Color has a coconutty flavor which I love (I told you I like everything coconuts, right?)
For me, 'Old Rose' is the best pinkish-nude shade I have ever tried. Beats L'oreal Star Secrets Aishwarya Rai shade by a mile. Oh, it also beats my Mac 'Hug Me' lipstick - shade-wise.

It kinda looks like Nars Turkish Delight (on the lips.) Perfect for smokey eyes, and I think it's a shade that would suit most Indian skin tones.

The texture is very creamy, so avoid locking your lips too much so it won't streak.

Wow! Lakme has really raised their prices, huh? Rs.395 for this :O
I think Rs.250-ish would suit this more. Okay, not more than Rs.300 if you push it.


I'd buy up to 5 more shades if they bring the price down to Rs.250. Really.


Do you think the people at Lakme read beauty blogs???

  1. I love and love this product by Lakme. I have three of these- Ginger, Old Rose and Coral But yes, the price hurts!

    I am myself going to do a review on them. By the way, old rose is by far my fav colouur among all the lipsticks I own. :)

  4. @Rati..that's great! I really liked Coral too.

    @Palak..ya i guess *Hot* is always more interesting ;) They have brought their prices to Maybelline level. Heck how many pple would pick a Lakme over a Maybelline??

  5. Pretty, I have a lakme salon 2 min away from my home at Bangalore, always a pleasure to xplore at Lakme! I go wild and end up buying things I dont use religiously :)

    I heard people raving abt this, but dont u think this wud luk bright on dark skin? May be, dark skin needs a single coat or something? wat do u say? luv ur post...

    u and ur coconut :) we both sail in the same boat...I love coconut, but only fresh. I dont like the stink of coconut oil in my food :)

  6. Divija,

    Let me answer this one to you. I hope Cynthia won't mind.

    This colour basically dulls down your complexion a bit. Although, it looks pretty overall and luminates a beautiful shade on lips- it is not for dusky compelxion. A hot pink or a fresher colour of pink would make a beautiful colour for dusky complexion. :)

  7. Hey Divija thanks..Yup even I neglect my Lakme products :)Haha..yes me n coconuts. N yes this shade would look good on dark skin tones 2 coz it'll always look nude.It looks brighter here coz thick+flash+daylight. It's pretty n subtle and could b more flattering on most dark ST more than cliched dark shades that most Indians r afraid to steer away from. Even Oprah looks better n younger in light sheer lip colors. I ♥ her!

    @Rati..hey of course i don't mind dear. This dulls down your complexion?

  8. the color is so cute, i love creamy pinks!

  9. Oh yes! Although I love the colour and the way it looks on me. But yes I noticed that my complexion brightens up more when I use brighter shades of pink. :)

    Silly! how colours can look diff on diff people. :)

    Also, could you please tell me what is this bidding system on EBAy? I got all confused. :(

  10. Rati u need to see the time the bidding will go on for. See starting bid..bid that amount.. if some1 bids higher..u bid higher...n so on. U can decide the price u'd b willing to pay for it.If ur the highest bidder when the timer stops then the product is yrs. Good luck!

    Thanks Amy!

  14. Hey! Nice post! I too have this in coral and some other pink shade whose name i just can't recollect. Frankly i was very disappointed with these. No staying power what so ever on me.. Doesn't even leave a stain on the lips post fading.. Tht is a lot of money for something tht just won't stay put..

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
