20160527_161217

Winters are finally seeping in. And talking of winter essentials, if something is bound to top my list, it has to be a stash of lip balms for sure. Lip balms are an unconditional necessity for me the whole year round but come fall, and applying them recurrently gets all the more essential to keep my pucker moisturised and pout off the flaking and drying. Lakme of late launched the relatively new Lip love lip care assortment of lip balms, and I could not be happier. And keeping with my lip balm obsession, I had to give these new babies on the block a shot, and here I am, reviewing the Lakme Lip Love Lip Care Lip Balm in the shade Cherry for my princesses.

My Understanding Of Lakme Lip Love Lip Balm

Lakme Lip Love Lip Care in Cherry is packaged in an adorable twist up stick form. The superficial packaging is colour coded as per the shade with a clear see-through lid and the packaging is very affable for travel purposes. The lip balm has a dual core with a lucid balmy centre surrounded by the tinted outer. The shade cherry is a gorgeous rosy crimson color with pin undertones which provides a nice sheer scarlet hue on the lips and has a very mild but pleasant cherry whiff.

The lip balm is pretty well pigmented for the quality of a lip balm and imparts a fine colour pay off in 3-4 swipes, and it will show up on dark, pigmented lips as well. The colour is super pretty and gives a nice flush of tint to my lips with a hint of shine, making it just right for everyday wear. The balm also has SPF 15 to look after the lips from sun damage.

The texture of the balm is super soft which glides very effortlessly on the lips, straight away hydrating them. It is a very light weight lip balm and I do not sense a waxy feel like some lip balms give me. It moisturises my lips and prevents them from getting parched, and the soft core does set it apart from all other lip balms in the league, while giving my lips an extra boost of hydration. But if you have like really dry or chapped lips then it might not prove to be moisturising enough. The tint stays for about 3-4 hours but even after the said time my lips do not feel completely dried up. Plus one can always reapply and add that tint back to the pucker.
