Lakme Enrich Satin Lip Color in 422 Review
Hello Beautiful Ladies, Today again, its a Lakme Satin Enrich Lip Color from my side and this time it is shade number 422. After having a not-so-good experience with shade no. 137, I did not want to buy another color online, but I got this particular one for free. I ordered 137 online and so when I received it, it was broken from the base. When I complained about this to the customer care, they asked me to choose another shade from the same line and so I ended up getting this one.

Product Quantity: 4.4 gm.

Price: Rs. 225


The lipstick has a very simple and non-fancy packaging. It comes in a maroon packaging with a strip of golden colour at the center which says Lakme. Except this, the only thing written on the packaging is “Lakme Enrich Satin 422.” The lipstick doesn’t have any name; it is recognized only by numbers.


No ingredient is mentioned anywhere.

Product Description:

Cast a spell in satin. Rich color takes life in a luxuriously creamy stick that brings satin to your lips. Enriched with sunscreens, vitamins and the goodness of olives, your lips will have a story to share. Indulge in a pod of beautiful shades ranging from floral pinks to shimmering peaches.

Rich in olives and vitamins.
Keeps your lips soft and smooth.
My Take on Lakme Enrich Satin Lip Color in 422:

422 is a shade of maroon which sometimes seems with undertones of brown. It is a complete non-shimmery shade which does not look matte on the lips. It has some kind of glossiness which stays for a long time. This particular shade is high in pigmentation; one swipe is enough to get bold colored lips. To reduce the color of the lipstick, I sometimes use it with a brush and spread it properly. Due to its dark color and high pigmentation, it gives a good staying power. Normally, it easily stays for around 3 hours (without heavy meals) after which it does start to fade, but still leaves some pigmentation on the lips. The formulation is not sticky but it may dry your lips. I prefer using a balm before applying it.

The thing I don’t like about these lipsticks is the smell. There is something really weird about the smell, it irritates me while I try to apply the lipstick, but thankfully the smell disappears just after few minutes. Another negative point about the lipstick is that it is transferable. It easily gets transferred on the cups. But this can be ignored as even after fading some color remains on the lips.

This is my third lipstick from this range and it’s not the best, but I do like it more than the other 2 I have (423 and 137). I just hope that the company thinks a little more about the packaging and having names and not the numbers, it’s really difficult to remember the shades by numbers.

Pros of Lakme Enrich Satin Lip Color in 422:
