Lakme Lip Love Conditioner ~ MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner Dupe


About Lakme Lip Love Conditioner:
It’s a gel-based lip softener that promises to pamper your pout with color and moisture. Lip Love Conditioner contains Shea butter and Jojoba oil to hydrate your lips while the SPF 12 protects your lips from the sun. Lip Love Conditioner is extremely light-weight and is loaded with the goodness of Shea butter; Jojoba oil and high shine polymers.

Price ~ Rs.225

Available in 4 shades ~ Hottie, Flirt, Charmer, Siren.



I'll be showing you Flirt & Charmer. They look quite similar in the little jars, especially when they're new, but Flirt is pinkish, and Charmer is sheer red. 

Flirt, Charmer
I am very impressed these! They smell delicious- like vanilla, and they make my lips really really soft & supple. And most important of all, the packaging....oh my bows, the packaging! It is one of the cutest lip balm jars ever! Heart-shaped from both top and bottom. I L♥VE!

Swatches: Flirt, Charmer

Talking about MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner, I am guessing Lakme LLC was inspired by it. If so, then I'm so proud of Lakme for kind of nailing it. The texture... the smell- almost ditto. So if you're looking for a MAC TLC dupe, you might want to check these out.


A few differences: Mac TLC is more balmy & Lakme LLC is more glossy, Mac TLC has SPF 15 & Lakme LLC has SPF 12, Lakme LLC is more glossy & Mac TLC is more balmy.

Lakme LLC Flirt & MAC TLC Petting Pink
Let's compare prices, shall we?
Mac TLC for 15ml~ Rs.870
Lakme LLC for ? (not sure about quantity, but smaller jar) ~ Rs.225

You see what I mean about balmy & glossy? Bottomline is, they're still very very similar. So for me, it's "Goodbye MAC TLC!" Well, unless they come up with a shade I won't be able to resist (and cuter packaging!) I've always thought they were overpriced, so you can imagine my 'Hallelujah moment'

Dupe Meter: 90% 

Now back to Lakme Lip Love Conditioner ~ As a lip balm addict, I adore them! Cute packaging, delicious content & my lips love them (or they love my lips?) I'm definitely buying more.

One dislike about Lakme LLC : Shade names are not printed on the jars. One can get confused, especially if they plan to launch more shades. I stuck the sticker from the seal on one, so I wouldn't make a mistake while swatching them. Maybe a little red heart sticker on the side with the shade name on it? :)

  22. You know, I'm normally very much put off by most (I said MOST, not all) Indian beauty blogs because they merely write what they read from press releases and add "I love it!" but your blog? I'm kind of hooked on it right now! Loving your honest, informative posts and clear photos and swatches! Great job sistah! ^_^You know, I'm normally very much put off by most (I said MOST, not all) Indian beauty blogs because they merely write what they read from press releases and add "I love it!" but your blog?

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! :)
