Lakme Lip Love Black Currant

Is there one beauty addict who can claim not being in love with lip balms? I don't think so. Lakme Lip Loves have been around for years in different formats. It's only in last two or three years that they have put it in this stick format which I find more convenient.

Some time ago, Lakme came up with a bunch of colors and scents in their Lip Love range.


 Here's my experience: I had earlier reviewed Cocoa and Grape which I love. The texture is similar... frozen butter-like which starts melting when rubbed on the lips.

A single swipe does not impart color. But, I have noticed it reapplied twice or thrice, it adds a good tinge of berry to the lips. Personally, I am not fond of that kind of shade. Yet, may be because it's winter time, there's a strange kind of beauty I find especially if I am wearing makeup.

As for the effectiveness... I had dry flakes. On layering the balm and letting it on for about ten minutes, the flakes softened and got very easy to remove. But, if it's gone from the lips, don't expect lips to remain hydrated afterwards. It works as long as it remains on the lips.

That's more or less of what it is.

Shall I repurchase? I am not the biggest fan of this particular color. I would repurchase, but may be in Grape.
