Lakme Enrich Matte Lipstick in RM 12 : Review, swatch, LOTD
Hello cupcakes 🙂
Lakme is a well known brand of India, which released Enrich Matte Lipsticks in 20 shades consisting of Reds, Wines, Oranges, Pinks and Brown last month.
I don’t know why but I was not too keen on hunting one and would have bought it may be later . But a readers request made me get one. I mean 300 buck does not hurt
I bought it blindly online, from Jabong. Let’s get into the review.
Price: 295 INR for 4.7g
My Experience with Lakme RM 12 Enrich Matte Lipstick:
Packaging: Just like the satin versions they come in silver tube, only difference is that the matte ones have matte finish. The cap is transparent. Shade number is at the bottom, why numbers :/
Shade and pigmentation: RM 12 is beautiful Deep Red Maroon. It has the right amount of Red and maroons in it which instantly brightens up the face. This shade will suit everybody specially Medium-Dusky-Deeper skin tones. One of those shades which will go wonderfully with the ethnic outfits and for winter season. I personally will wear it any day, anytime of the year, as I don’t associate shades with weather/nigh time/daytime 🙂 The pigmentation is okay, falls between opaque and sheer. If you have pigmented lips like mine you would need about 2 swipes.
Texture and Scent : The texture is silicony. It glided smoothly on lips and did not tug even on the first usage. It has the sweet syrupy scent, it’s quite common with all the enrich lipstick be it matte or satin.
Performance: As I mentioned it glided smoothly on the lips giving a velvety matte finish with the sheen. Which I love. It’s not that powder matte, out and out matte type. On the whole lipstick stays for about 4-5 hours, which is good for the price it comes in. Also it faded evenly, even after I sipped onto something it did fade a little, but it was even. After the lunch the lipstick went off completely leaving behind a faint Red tint. The formula isn’t hydrating. It’s not drying at first, but after about 3 hours, the dryness starts to sink in. Also it left the lips dry at the end of the wear time. One must exfoliate the lips and moisturize them well. Also after about 2 hours, it became a little crumbly. Doesnot bleed or smudge around and transfers a little.
Gorgeous Red Maroon Shade, Affordable, 4-5 staying power, leaves behind a tint, practical sturdy packaging, Buildable colour, Does not tug
Left lips dry, Not a true matte ( Has a sheen, I love it), Sweet scent, Does not survive meal, Becomes a little crumbly, Needs prepping of lips
I loved the shade and I am okay with the formula. But there is a lot of inconsistency within the range. I was watching Titi’s corner swatch video, she has mentioned the texture and lip swatches of each Shade. So it’s not a range, where you can read one review and go for bunch of shades. If you want
to go for one, make sure you check the reviews before. If you are looking for matte lipsticks at 300-350 range you can go for Colorbar velvet matte which has good matte formula
and has about 40 shades with names 😛
Has this range excited you? Are you planning to buy one?

Lakme lippies r hit or miss.. wud want to try one shade from this collection.. nice review
Thanks. Do try 🙂
The enrich range doesn’t excites me..I would buy three elle 18 matte lipppies instead of this.. :p :p As performance is comparable..
True. wasnot keen either…readers request:)
Nice shade and review :). Dark shades don’t look good on me :(. Also I don’t like lipstick shades without names :/
Thanks Sonali. Try wearing it as a stain, but I do understand I have seen on some Dark shades dont look flattering, including my Mum. Its weird :/
the shade is pretty…….nicely reviewed 🙂
Thanks Aditi 🙂
Your post reminded me that I too had a Lakme Satin Enrich lipstick but in old packaging. Can’t find it now though 😀 I guess it might be in my sister’s makeup kit *LOL* Btw nice review 🙂 🙂
Ha ha…Thanks :*
Great review hon! Loved it that you gave another option at the end 🙂
Thanks so much 🙂
lovely shade, but its a pity the finish isnt better. thanks for the thorough review! x
Glad you found this helpful 🙂
I loved the shade but sheeny matte that dry out lips within three hours of wear has slightly out me off. You are right colorbar mattes are better option for thus price..lovely review?
Thanks Radha and plenty shades they have not just a little variations 🙂
Great Post dear…I am myself a big fan of matte lipstick…you hv reviewed this lakme lipstick beautifully hun….xo, Neha
Thanks so much Neha 🙂
Wow, I love this color!!!
Gorgeous shade! Suits you so much 🙂
Thanks So much Mariyam 😀
I was eyeing on this Enrich Matte Lipsticks and waiting for someone to review it. I think that I should go for Colorbar velvet matte :p Nice review 🙂
Colorbar is faar better. Thanks Preethi 🙂
such a pretty bridal maroon shade. Rightly said this will compliment all skin tones. I can’t wait to get my hands on some of these, lovely swatches 🙂
Thanks Astha 🙂
Despite not knowing the brand of this lipstick, I liked the post and how you got in 🙂
If it’s drying it’s not for me. My lips are dry enough as it is!
True, there are tons of options around which are better than this 🙂
Looooove the colour!
Me too 🙂
The color is gorgeous dear. And I am happy its not hard matte 🙂 Nice review
True, same here not really a fan of out and out matte finish 🙂 Thanks
this is my mom’s favorite color, I think its suits on me too. nice review 🙂
It will. Its one of those shades which will brighten up the face 🙂
For this price I guess we cant complain much right? I think I will skip this range though. Nice review Swathi 🙂
True Harman. But still I feel the Colorbar is better.. Thanks 🙂
the shade looks so gorgeous 🙂
Gorgeous shade ♥♥ please post full FOTD with it! ? they should’ve changed the packaging of this new range. 🙁
That’s the problem with Lakme lipsticks,they are smooth at first but gradually start drying my lips 🙁 But yeah these are affordable, so no problem in trying them 🙂
Yeah..it wont hurt much 🙂
I think Colorbar has better lipsticks as compared to these. Nice review 🙂
I want to try some pink from this collection.
Do check the reviews, I think some goes patchy in them 🙂
The shade is beautiful but making lips dry is really big con for me as i have already really dry lips. Nice swatches.
Thanks zubaida 🙂
The shade is gorgeous and looks awesome on you and I would buy it just for ur swatch 🙂 but seriously what is with the shade numbers, why can’t they hire someone whose job will be just to give names to shade 🙂
Thanks. Ha ha rightly said, it wont take that long.
I am surely checking out this range. Looks fantastic on u
Thanks Khushi. It has some really bright shades of your liking 🙂
The color looks amazing on you.. i am going to buy this lipstick in next shopping.. nice review dear
Thanks shwetali 🙂 Hope you like it.
i was slightly cynical about the texture of these. Lighter shades look patchy but the darker shades seems to give lot smoother finish . Will check out this range
Yeah. But some end patchy it seems. Trying wont hurt I feel 🙂
Such a pretty shade. loved it.
Me too loving it 🙂
