A hydrating, fruity lip balm that makes your lips look juicy is one of the must-haves for summer. I had heard great things about the Lakme Lip Love Lip Balms from a number of bloggers and finally got to try the Insta Pink lip balm from the range. I am happy to report that this lip balm ticked all the right boxes for me and has become a part of my everyday skincare routine. Read on to find out what I love about this product.
First of all, I would like to talk about the pretty packaging of this product. It comes in a peppy pink tube with a graphical design of lips all over that looks super cool and summery. Who wouldn’t want to use this lip balm when the packaging is so attractive and calls out to you? The twist up packaging also makes this product handbag friendly and extremely convenient to use.
Coming to the actual formula, the product looks white in the tube and translucent upon application but it is a colour changing formula that turns a sheer pink on the lips after a few minutes. It provides a beautiful “my lips but better” look and makes the lips look juicy and healthy. The tint lasts on the lips for several hours and the formula keeps my lips hydrated all day long without reapplication. The lip balm can also be used under matte lipsticks because it is not greasy and does not cause the lipstick to slide all over the lips. What is also wonderful is that this product contains SPF 15 which is a blessing because we often forget to protect our lips from the sun while we slather sunscreen all over our skin. Also, did I mention the fruity (watermelon?) scent of the lip balm that is perfect for the sultry weather?
Overall, it is clear that I love everything about this product and don’t really have any con to share. The price point of INR 150 is very affordable even for students and young professionals who have just ventured into makeup. If you are someone who is not comfortable wearing pigmented lipsticks to work or college then this lip balm will provide you the perfect natural tint to look put together without much effort. And if you are someone who uses long-lasting lipsticks on a regular basis then this lip balm will act as a perfect primer and hydrator to keep your lips healthy and moisturized! This one is a must-buy in my opinion!
