Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick No.129
Its been long that I wrote about a lipstick.While searching for a lipstick to review I chanced upon the Lakme Enrich Lipsticks I had got when the new 26 shades kind of resurfaced my love for them. Not so surprisingly I still have this one that I missed on while posting the reviews and surprisingly I realised it is a dupe of my last purchase from MAC. Yes I am talking about MAC Satin Lipstick Mocha. This one is from the regular Enrich Satin range though!
Price: INR 225/-
My Experience with Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick No.129:
Nothing more to say about the packaging which is as old as some of us reading the review may be. O:) It is travel friendly and nice, just that we have been seeing the same old thing and I am sure even our moms are bored of it’s packaging. 😐
As you can see, my lipstick bullet is all tattered and battered. 🙁 It broke from its base when I was clicking the pictures long time back. Sadly, I could not find the pictures of the lipstick in my drive and had to click them again. The culprit here is the texture. It is very very creamy. Almost like butter. one moment I was applying it on my lips and the next moment it just broke. :'( make sure you store these in your refrigerator during summer months.
See how creamy it is! Its equally soft on the lips too. I have noticed that the texture do vary a little with different shades and this one is very moisturising on the lips. The glossiness lasts for quite a long time and fades only when the lipstick is about to fade.
The color is a universally flattering peachy brown or you can say a peachy nude. Among the lipsticks I hoarded at one go, this one is my most favorite, because of the color and the feeling on lips. Its very very light on the lips.

The creaminess make it fill the lips really well and it does not settle on fine lines. It comes out semi opaque on one swipe but you can layer it on for an opaque coverage very easily. If you have pigmented lips, don’t worry. Its going to cover all of that pigmentation in two swipes.
If I compare it to MAC Mocha, then I would say while they are very very similar on swatch, Mocha comes out more peachy on my lips. It is much more pigmented and not glossy like 129. Mocha is very heavy on the lips and the finish and peachy-ness does not make it look as natural and neutral as 129. However I like them both. 🙂
As far as staying power is concerned, it is usual to all these enrich satin lipsticks i.e for around 3 hrs. It leaves behind a peachy stain but that is nothing much to speak about. You have to retouch as and when possible.

Lakme Enrich Satin Lipsticks have their own followers. You can not force them to change their liking towards it no matter how much you try. 😛 This particular shade Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick No.129 is one beautiful peachy brown that can be your go to office lipstick every single day. I love the shade, texture and finish of this one a lot. Unless you hate these for it’s smell (a lot of people do) , you should definitely give this a try. And If you are still in two minds whether to give MAC Mocha a try or not. try this one first. See for yourself If you are comfortable with the kind of shade it is and then splurge. 😉
