Chic Makeup: Lakme’s Gypsy collection (Part 1)

November 1, 2010

Speaking Chic spent a few days trying out Lakme’s latest makeup range: the Gypsy collection. Here’s the first part of our review.

About the Gypsy Collection by Lakme

The idea behind Lakme’s Gypsy collection, made in collaboration with designer Malini Ramani, is to take Indian women a makeup range that will see them through the festive season: Diwali, weddings, Christmas, New Year and some more weddings (up to January).

Lipsticks, lip glosses, lip colours, blush, eye shadow, kajal, nail polish.

Colours

Mostly earthy undertones, with several vibrant colours. Each makeup product has a distinct colour palette.

Lips: Enrich Satin Lip Color

I started with the Enrich Satin Lip Color lipsticks and discovered, much to my delight, that they did feel like satin on my lips, as the name suggests. The colours ranged from rust to brown. I liked most of the colours (10 in all), and they’re bound to please women of all ages.

Application was easy and the colour came out well in the first coat itself. With just a couple of coats, the lipsticks stayed in place for 5-6 hours, and even after a meal. Lakme says that these lipsticks contain sunscreen, vitamins and olive extracts for soft and smooth lips. Must say that the lipsticks certainly didn’t leave my lips dry.

Sheer Satin Lip Gloss

I love lip glosses, and I can’t imagine life without them. The eight shades of Lakme’s Sheer Satin Lip Gloss were enough to satisfy my thirst for lip glosses, and I liked the slight metallic sheen some of them had. They lasted long (though not as long as the lipsticks), and smelled and tasted great. 😉 My favourite shade: No. 11.

Lip Palette

Lakme’s Lip Palette of five very earthy brown shades comes with a lip brush that will require basic skills, which you can learn in just couple of minutes. Some of the shades were similar to the Enrich Satin Lip Color lipsticks, but the difference was that these are slightly glossier. Most of the shades are suitable for women of all skin tones. (Hence makes a great Diwali gift.)

Have you tried the Lakme Gypsy collection’s lip range? Tell us what you think!

    They have this new eyeliner out which has got the point of a sketchpen. Is it any good?

    Could you recommend me a good eyeliner?

      I haven’t tried the new eyeliner you mentioned. Will take a look. Are you looking for a liquid eyeliner or one with a felt/ sketch pen tip? Or just an eye pencil?
