It’s a known fact that lips are up to five times more sensitive than the facial skin, and hence need a lot care and attention. A little movement in mercury, either towards the heat or cold, will take a toll on your lips. In either case, lips will remain cracked if not lubricated well. My mother used to rub the scum of milk when I was a baby. Now that my baby days are over and I need something more effective, I bought the latest range of Lip Love Lip Care lip balms
Lakme has launched three new shades in this lip love lip balms range: Tangerine, Blackcurrant and Raspberry at an affordable cost of Rs.200 for 3.8g. These Lip balms moisturize well and keep lips hydrated for up to 4 hours at a stretch. Since they contain SPF 15, it also protects the outer layer of the skin from getting damaged due to continuous exposure in the sun.
My Review of Lakme Lip Love Lip Care Raspberry, Tangerine and BlackCurrant:
Packaging: The cover is transparent, and reflects the color well. However, it does not come off easily. Probably, it is to ensure that the lip balms remains safe.
Texture: For all the three lakme lip balms, the texture is very soft, light and glossy. It spreads evenly, and covers the entire lip area in just two strokes. My lips felt hydrated, and I felt confident about the appearance of my lips. If the lips are cracked, then apply a neutral balm before applying a colored balm. Otherwise, the flaky skin of lips will appear prominently giving you a shabby look.
Fragrance: The fragrance is mild for all the three shades. It stays for up to twenty minutes, and you will feel absolutely neutral after the fragrance goes away. There is not much of a difference in the fragrance though, except for Blackcurrant, which does make me feel crave for sour grapes!
Lakme Lip Love Tangerine Review:
The color tangerine is absolutely light and feminine. The Orange tint is not very pigmented and will only work if you have non pigmented lips. During daytime, if you are a little hesitant about using lipsticks, just apply this color, anywhere, at a Spa, boardroom meeting or an event. You will never feel out of place. Absolutely girly, just like me.
Lakme Lip Care BlackCurrant Review:
Purple is a unique shade to apply on lips if you are little experimental and bold. After Aishwarya’s purple pout at Cannes, this happens to be the colour of the season. But Lakme blackcurrant has no tint and gives no colous on your lips. Good for girls who don’t want to walk around with purple lips. It does not make your lips prominent.
Lakme Lip Love Raspberry Review:
The shade raspberry is absolutely pretty and gives a wee bit of rosy tint. The pigmentation quotient is higher than tangerine and blackcurrant and hence makes it a drool worthy lakme lip balm. Ideal product, if you have to step out in the sun.
How It Feels? All the three lip care lip balm shades do not feel spectacularly different. They taste buttery and creamy, and have a touch of their respective flavors.
For How Long does it Last? Okay, two strokes last for three hours at one go. The teeny tiny pigmented appearance lasts for about an hour, and it definitely needs a touch up after that.
Price in India: Rs.200 each

Will I Recommend the Product? Yes, definitely to school or college girls. This product, just like other products from Lakme stable, will keep you free of worries and effort for at least three to four hours. I always feel that more than a BB or CC, we need a lip balm which solves two purposes- the nourishment of lips and adding the glam quotient, and to a certain extent, Lakme Lip Love Lip Care does solve my problem. If you face persistent issues with your lips, trying applying ghee, butter or milk scum often. Ensure that you drink a lot of water and keep an optimum pH balance. During summers, we sweat a lot, and lips suffer a huge damage in terms of loss of moisture.
I really hope to see a world full of women with beautiful and saucy lips. A great lip balm/gloss/lipstick/shimmer not only ups the glamour quotient of any lady but also serves the purpose of enhancing the personality and contour! If you do not believe me, pick up a history book to see why manufacturing of lipsticks remained unfazed during the Second World War; at a point of time when every other industry had to lock its manufacturing plant.
