Lakme, as I have stressed out multiple times was my Go-To brand when I grew up . Though I loved their Foundations kajal and Nail paints, The Enrich Satin range was not really appealing to me. Somehow, those Maroon Lipstick packaging did not impress me much. I was excited to see that Lakme had launched some new shades, and in new packaging as well. So I checked them out at the makeup counter and picked this one up. Bt I was in doubt the whole time, you know all shades look good on the Wrist and seldom do I feel good after I apply it at home. Read on to know if Lakme Enrich Satin P169 Lipstick is better than the old Enrich Range or not.

Review of Lakme Enrich Satin P169:
Lakme Enrich satin is one of the oldest range of lipsticks in India , but they had a few drawbacks. Number one was their Boring maroon packaging, Number two was the very chemical strong smell that was a total turn off for many. The third reason is completely fine to some, yet very bad for a few- the formula seemed to differ for different shades as well as staying power .
Packaging of Lakme Enrich Satin P169:
I really hated the boring maroon packaging of the previous line of Lakme Enrich satin. The new Lakme Enrich Satin range comes in a Silver packaging with a twist up bullet. The lipstick comes with a transparent cover made of plastic which clearly shows the shade from above. The lipstick retails in a silver cardboard box, which is nice since most of their other ranges come in boxes .
Lakme wanted to launch a few trendy summer shades to match the Maybelline Bold Matte and Pink Alert as well as Rebel Boutique Lipsticks . They have mostly Pink and purple based shades, though I saw a few coral shades too.
Packaging wise they have done well. These look like their Matte and Gloss range of lipsticks from Absolute range. The packaging is user-friendly, makes it easy to locate color and travel friendly.
The shade Lakme Enrich Satin P169 is glossy and somewhat different from most of the shades in the new launch . It’s liquid jelly like texture (Reminds me of Flomar Lipsticks ) which is easy to apply and covers lips in two swipes. For lesser pigmented lips, one swipe would be enough. the formula does settle into fine lines after a while. It gives a glossy finish to lips . It also keeps lips hydrated .
The shade P169 is a Gorgeous Blue based Neon Pink which did make my teeth seem a bit yellow. The shade is bright and will be tougher for ladies with NC42+ skin tones to pull off. But it’s all about your confidence.
Due to the glossy finish , the shade does tent to move a lot on the lips and you will need a lip liner underneath to keep it in place. Without lip liner it did not survive meal and it is not transfer resistant so with a bit of drinking and eating it as gone. I’m sure with less pigmented lips it will leave a pink stain .
