Today, I am going to review Lakme 9 To 5 Lip Love Lip Care Strawberry. I had just finished my maybelline tinted lip balm and now, I wanted to try one from Lakme. I get addicted to lip balms in winter as I have chapped lips. So, I am reviewing the Strawberry shade from Lakme Lip Love Lip Care Range. I had high hopes with this cutie as this is a cute fuchsia shade and let`s see if this live upto my expectations :

The packaging is really cute. The lip balm is packed in cardboard packaging of same pink color and every detail is clearly mentioned on it like shelf life, shade name, quantity etc. Also, one more thing, this has been chosen as a voted product for the year 2016 as seen on outer packaging. From inside too, this strawberry shade has pink color packaging same as the shade of the balm. The font style is different which makes its packaging to stand out the most. The cap shuts clearly and therefore, it can easily be dropped in the makeup bag. Overall, the packaging is girly and nice.
My Experience with Lakme 9 To 5 Lip Love Lip Care Strawberry Shade :
It is a dual core lip balm which has cream in the center for moisturizing properties and outer part has the pink color to provide color to the lips. As, I mentioned above that I was expecting high hopes with this tinted lip balm. But, In reality, I have to swipe a lot to get the color. The pigmentation is really less like nothing for the pigmented lips. The tint is too light that I feel, it may be visible only on fair skinned beauties. It is glossy in texture but there is very sheer pigmentation, I must say.
The texture is really smooth and does the work of giving nourishment to the lips. It glides on effortlessly on my lips without any tugging or pulling. It has a mild scent which vanishes after some time of its application. It hydrates my lips for about 6-7 hours. It also contains SPF 15 which protects the lips from harmful sun rays and prevent darkening them.
As it is not very pigmented for the dark lips so one can use this shade underneath the trendy matte lipsticks or above them in winters.
Pros Of Lakme 9 To 5 Lip Love Lip Care Strawberry Shade :
- Cute Packaging.
- Love the dual core, creamy at the center that moisturises well and the color is neither too dark nor too mild.
- Lasts For 6-7 Hours.
- Moisturises really well.
- Has SPF 15 For Sun Protection.

- Easy To Travel With.
- Easily Available.

Overall, This is a decent strawberry colored lip balm for the those who are completely in love with lakme and can compromise on pigmentation part.
