Lakme Lip Love Lip Care Cherry Review

I love winters as it allows me to indulge in loads and loads of lip balms. But since I have pigmented lips just like the majority of Indian women, I prefer those with a hint of color. And the Nivea Lip balm in the shade 'Pomegranate' is by far the best thing that I have tried. However when Lakme launched these 'Lip Love Lip Care' beauties, I could not resist from trying them out. Got them from Amazon during the GOSF. But did they live up to the hype. Read on to find out more -

Lakme Lip Love Lip Care in the shade Cherry

The product promises -

  • Luxurious creamy core that moisturizes your lips
  • Swirl of color for a hint of tint
  • SPF 15* helps protect from sun damage
It comes in 4 flavours - Cherry, Peach, Strawberry and Vanilla. Priced at Rs 200 for 3.8 gms.

My take on the product - 

I picked up the most pigmented variant which is the shade Cherry. The balm leaves behind a light red stain on the lips which will not really show up on very pigmented lips. The moisturization part is ok though not the best. If looks unflattering if you apply it directly on chapped lips. Apply it after a bit of exfoliation for best results. I personally wear it layered under and over the Lotus Pure Color lipsticks which are quite hydrating during the winters. And I do need to reapply it every 3 hours.

Though it looks different in the swatches, I find it to be similar to the Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm "Cherry Kiss" when worn on the lips.

Pro's of the product -

1. Has SPF 15
2. Looks quite attractive
3. Nice bubblegum flavor
4. Quite moisturizing if one does not mind frequent re-application
5. Tube packaging makes it hygienic.

Con's of the product -

1. Does not really show up on very pigmented lips. 
2. Pricier than the Maybelline Baby Lips Color Balms which delivers similar results.

Rating - 3/5. If you are specifically looking for tinted lip balms during the winter months, buy Nivea or Maybelline Baby Lips. They are not only better but also lighter on the pocket.


  1. True, i was so excited to buy the peach one in this lakme lip love , got it today and it is no color no taste . and also this is costly as compared to baby lips .. em so sad today wasted 200 on this product i could have purchased one baby lips and would have saved 50 bugs above it . :((((

    1. I know how it hurts when u have been using a better/similar product at a lower price and then decide to buy something like this...thanks for dropping by
