Lakme Lip Love Lipsticks are a rage these days! After seeing the red packaging with the heart and all, I think they should have launched them around Valentine's Day. Not that I'm complaining. I mean, the sooner, the better, right?
But if any boys are reading this, these lipsticks are great gifts for women on Valentine's Day. You're welcome! :)
Look at the 'LOVE' that's carved on that tube! Hats off to the Creative Director, or whoever designed it. I ♥ it!
I got Love Haze- a warm nude shade. I was confused between this and Rose Kissed, which is a rosy pink shade, but eventually picked Love Haze. I thought I oughta give myself a medal (or rather, a tiara) for resisting pink for once =)

Lakme Lip Love Lipstick ~ Love Haze
Even the lipstick has LOVE all around. Who's thinking about 'Wet Wet Wet' right about now?
Swatches & Review:
*That pic of me is only for swatch's sake. I didn't even comb my hair, so let's not be mean =D
Shade ~ As you can see, it has more of a peach undertone, so it's more warm than cool. If my skin tone wasn't cool, it would be one of the best nude lipsticks I've tried so far. Although I still like it, a little bit of warmth is always nice :). I think that if you have a darker & warmer skin tone than mine, it would look perfect and maybe mlbb (my lips but better) for some.
Finish ~ I like the lipstick finish. It's different from the Lakme Enrich Satin Lipsticks. It feels like a lip balm and doesn't dry out my lips afterwards.
Fragrance ~ A very very mild fragrance of some oil (maybe mineral oil, like the Nyx Round Lipsticks, but not as bad and nauseating.)
The Bad ~ It doesn't stay for long. Even without eating or drinking, it starts to wear off in about 15-30 minutes. But it doesn't disappear completely, which is a good thing.I usually don't make a big whoop about staying power, coz I like to re-apply, otherwise I'll never use up my lipsticks before the expiry date.
Buy again? Nope. One is enough for me. But I'll accept if you want to gift me some more ;p
Price ~ Rs.550. The whole package is worth that much, I think.
My Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥♥ 4.5/5
Have you tried this yet? Love it or not?
