Lakme Night Fever Aqua Shine Lipcolor & Lip Artist ~ Reviews & Swatches

As requested by most of you, here are the reviews and swatches of two lip products from the 'Lakme Night Fever Collection By Suneet Verma'
Warning : Picture heavy!

Aqua Shine Lipcolor

A revolutionary product that’s everyone’s favourite. It’s a lipstick, a lip balm and lip gloss all in one. Available in brand new colors of the season. From luscious Sangria and Plum to sophisticated Sepia and Firebrick shades. With a unique applicator for enhanced color delivery. Just one sweep and you’re ready to go.
Price ~ Rs.425

Bottom to top ~ Sepia, Sangria, Plum, Firebrick


Sepia, Sangria, Plum, Firebrick


Sepia ~ A dark brown brown shade, which could be an MLBB (my lips but better) for some with dark pigmented lips
Sangria ~ A wine shade with orange undertones
Plum ~ A dark berry shade with fuchsia undertones
Firebrick ~ This is very similar to Sepia with a bit more orange/peach undertones to it


Sponge applicator



Here are the swatches. These were taken in natural light without flash, but they did come out a bit lighter than the actual shade because of the shine of the lipcolor. I'd say the actual shade is roughly 1 shade darker than what you see in theses pics

Review:
I reviewed this last year here
I still feel the same way about them. I love love love the smell of these. I do, however, think these Aqua Shine Lipcolors from this collection are a bit thicker, but that could be because they are a lot more pigmented than the shade I reviewed before, which is 'Old Rose' 
These are also priced higher than the original price, which is Rs.395
To be honest, I personally would not purchase these shades for myself, because I like none of them. They are just too dark and old-fashioned. 
'Night Fever Collection' I assumed means for a night out/clubbing, right? Who enjoys nightlife mostly? Young people, let's say those below 40?  But these shades say over 40 to me. I wouldn't gift these to my mom either. I don't want her to look older than she is! =D

Rating~ ♥♥♥♥♥ for the product, ♥♥♥♥♥ for the shades.

Lip Artist

The Lakme Multiple?



Description
Use these color rich sticks to define your lip line or fill with intense color. Enhanced with skin care vitamins for soft, smooth application. Take your pick of the hottest shades from deep crimsons to classic terracottas
Price ~ Rs.250




Terracotta, Sienna, Crimson

Terracotta ~ A dark coral shade and it's my favorite out of all three. I will call it my "Lakme Mutiple" coz I tried using it as a cream blush too and it looks nice! ;) 
Sienna ~  A medium brown shade. Those with dark skin tones could also use this to contour and as a bronzer.
Crimson ~ A deep red shade

Review:
These are soft and creamy. I think they are the best additions to this collection. Again, I really wish there were more shades, like rose and pink . You can apply these sheerly and smudge to make them look like lip stains. 
They do not dry out my lips and are quite long lasting
The only thing that might bother some people is the scent of it. The same one the Enrich Satin Lipstick  has, which, again is not really a con for me.

Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥♥ + .5

  2. thanks so much! lip swatches help a lot!
    i personally like all the shades. the only difference that i notice between this and the new formula is as you said, the increase in the pigmentation. i also notice a reduction in the glossiness. and lakme multiple ;) their price is reaaally amazing!

  4. @Sara H ~ Glad u like them

    @Rima~ Yup, the glossiness is less in these coz of the thicker consistency I guess

  20. Hey Mimi, u can find that shade in many brands. Check out Colorbar, Mac. I'm sure you'll find a shade like that in Maybelline Color Sensational.

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! :)
