The Fruit Crush | Lakmé Lip Love Review

Summer maybe over, but our affair with summery fresh products shall last a little longer. After introducing the first Lip Love range with six shades last year, Lakmé introduced three new fruity shades in May this year. The new Lakmé Lip Love range, with actress Shraddha Kapoor as the face of it's campaign, promises to give a fresh tint with long lasting nourishment and a fruity fragrance to go with it. We tested the new variants and here's what we think about it. Read on!

What? - Lakmé Lip Love 

What does it promise? - Hydrate your lips with Lakme Lip Love’s fruity hues to make them beautifully tinted while protecting your lips from sun damage.

Quantity: 3.8gm
Price: Rs 200
Shades: Raspberry, Tangerine and Blackcurrent
Available at: All major e-commerce sites, Lakmé beauty advisory counters across India and Lakmé Pro Stylist Studios.

Packaging: Plastic twist up tube in colours that match the tint and flavour. The plastic cover of the tube is very delicate, and may break if you drop it anywhere. So, do handle it with care. The packaging is travel friendly.

Our experience: True to their promise, the Lakmé Lip Love range is indeed very creamy and nourishing. These tinted sticks are nothing like the others available in the market. Some of them tend to get sticky and dry up after a few hours, and are impossible due to use in a humid climate. But, the Lakmé Lip Love passed this test successfully, even when the temperature went up to 43 degrees during our trip. The texture is smooth and glides on easily. The tinted stick centre is rich and creamy, which leaves your lips feeling hydrated. The tints are subtle. Perfect for a day when all you need is a natural look with a slight tinge of colour on your lips. Our favourite has to be Raspberry, but even Black current is quite interesting, as it leaves a nice hue of purple. Tangerine is very summery, and has a refreshing fragrance as well. The price is similar to other competitors of the product available in the market, but what gives the Lakmé Lip Love an edge is the fact that it is a dual core lip balm. It focuses on both hydration as well as leaving a tint, and also comes with SPF 15. So, you don't have to buy a separate lip product for other concerns. This one does a good job of taking care of it all.

Pros: Provides hydration
Subtle tints
Glides on easily
Well priced
Easily available

Cons: Delicate plastic twist tube packaging

Verdict: Once again, Lakmé has impressed us with their lip care range. With the right amount of care and a nice tint, the Lakmé Lip Love gets a thumbs up from us. Ditch your super shiny, sticky and boring lip balms for this already!
