Lakme Sheer Satin Lip Gloss-41

Today I am going to review Lakme Sheer Satin Lip Gloss in the Shade-41.
What The Company Claims about the Product:

  • Infused with moisturizing vitamins so you can treat your lips to an ultra comfortable, satin finish.
  • Available in 8 shades.

Price: Rs.325/- 

Shelf Life : 2 years from Date of Manufacture

My take on Lakme Sheer Satin Lip Gloss, Shade-41 :

The shade 41 is a reddish-maroon shade with a shimmer to it (pink & golden shimmer). The shimmer is not OTT, but its quite shiny. This looks best during night time. The packaging is quite decent. It comes with a small mirror on top of the cap. The brush is regular doe-foot type. I am quite dissatisfied with the brush as it does not pick up the right amount , I mean the gloss is just there on the tip of the brush and I end up dipping the brush a number of times to get the required amount. It has a nice sweet smell like a bubblegum or a candy. Nothing artificial though. The consistency of the gloss is good and does not feel heavy on lips. It does not bleed in the corners of the lips. The gloss is quite moisturizing, even if the lip balm is skipped, it does not dry out the lips. The staying power is also ok, it easily stays for 2-3 Hrs and then fades away. But my only concern with this would be the shimmers that stay away on my lips after the gloss dries up. So that is kind of annoying as I have to remove them with a cleanser/make –up remover.

This is how the applicator looks like :
