Lakmé Lip Conditioner Charmer Review

First of all the packaging. It is so so cute! A small transparent jar with a mirror shiny adorable red cap. A heart shaped hollow out holds the lip balm/conditioner, as you can see in the pic. (pretty no? I fell for this product mainly for the cute packaging).



●Now for the colour, Charmer is a gorgeous corally pink colour with a tiny amount of reddish orange in it. Definitely a unique colour in the tinted lip balm category. Which is why I picked up this over the pinks. (Also, I didn't have a colour like this in my kit. And until this came along, I basically thought I look ridiculous in coral ....*ahem* yes I was so stuck to brown nudes...I guess its just about finding out the right shade)
The conditioner is not very pigmented, but it isn't very sheer also. Something in between. And glossy. Which makes it very wearable for college\office\your girls get-together etc. Try applying it with a lip brush. It's easier and gives better colour pay off. (And keeps your fingers clean and non sticky, and maintains hygeine). It will work good as a gloss over a lipstick also.
●The lasting power is an hour or two maximum, which is good considering its only a tinted balm. It survies some light snacking/drinking, but do not expect it to last through full meals. I love re-applying it, so its good by me.
● On the conditioning aspect, its not very good. I expected more out of it. It's keeps your lips soft for as long its on and a little while after also, but you can't expect it to heal chapped/dry lips. You need something heavier for those. (I personally like nivea, maybelline baby lips for that). But yes, lip love conditioner smoothens out your lips when applied.
● The smell is a bit strong and sweet. (My roomie could smell it 3 ft away for a few minutes when I applied it first. So, to all the sensitive noses, please do sniff it before buying).
● The only down side is the packaging (which I do love since it looks very cute...great to look at). It's a tub. So you have to use your fingers every time (or a Q tip/brush). It would have been so much better with a stick packaging!

It'll get a little difficult once the product starts to get over, with all the digging.
It can't be used under a lipstick since it buttery and will make the lip colour bleed and slide.
If you are ok with the tub packaging, I would definiely recommend you to pick this up. It's a unique colour and a fun tinted lip balm. Has spf too. (Again...loving the heart shaped tub a lot... Cute!)

Rs 225/- for 3g

  1. I too bought this product just for the packaging and it was soo creamy and buttery to put.. but it has practical problems I still prefer tubes/sticks for lip balms.
