Review – Lakme Cheek and Lip Tint

One day I was browsing Lakme’s website for the freshly launched “Bridal Sutra” collection. I got mesmerised with this product… TINT… for both Lip as well as Cheek… how that’s possible and how it will look…and again the shade of the tint is very very colourful and attractive…I just couldn’t stop myself and same day went to Shopper stop and bought this Tint for me..

You can clearly mark the diff between the first and the second pic… the key is to blend properly..so in first pic I had not blended it properly where as in second I blended it.

I like this product quite a lot. Here are some nice things about this product:

  • It’s very much pigmented. You need a very small amount to cover your entire cheekbones.
  • The gel gets dissolves into the skin and leaves a wonderful stain behind.
  • No shimmers, no shine, just an intense flush.
  • It lasts really long. In fact, it lasts till I wash it off. The intensity of colour does not diminish even after 4-5 hrs of application.
  • No smell of any kind. You will forget that you are wearing anything on your cheeks at all.
  • Since the gel blends with skin transparently, looks very natural.
  • It is very decently priced.
  • Did not cause any irritation or break-outs.

But the things which I didn’t like about this product are:

  • The brush that is there at the tip is absolutely useless. It is printed on the carton that it is for lips only. But it does not spread the product well onto the lips.
  • This product can be used only with the fingers.
  • The directions to use are completely misleading. If you dot this product on your cheeks, you will see the spots where you dotted it even after blending.
  • You have to squeeze out the gel onto your index and middle finger and blend it as fast as you can. Same technique works for the lips. If you spend more than 10 sec. for blending, all you will see is a splotchy patch of color.
  • I have to clean my hands every time I use it. It leaves my fingertips blushing too..

To conclude I will say its good product and should try once… however i am using it only for cheek as i feel its very dark to use as lippie…. or I can say I dont like dark lippies.. 🙂

I will give (Out of 5):
