Lakme Night Fever Lip Artist - Review

What Lakme Claims: Use these color rich sticks to define your lip line or fill with intense color. Enhanced with skin care vitamins for soft, smooth application. Take your pick of the hottest shades from deep crimsons to classic terracottas.
M.R.P. : Rs. 250/-

Pros:
1. They are quite soft and apply easily on the lips without tugging or pulling
2. Colors are intense, you just need to apply a little bit for the colors to show up and the pencils themselves are not as drying as lip pencils can get
3. They stay on for quite long - I generally use them to fill in my entire lip & top it with gloss. It lasts for a good 3-4 hours. Without gloss, I think it would last even longer.

Cons
1. The colors. They could have made some more lighter shades.  I have terracotta, siena and crimson.

Terracotta is a nice peachy coral shade, but on my pigmented lips it shows up as Orange (not nice), but once I layer it with a light pink gloss it looks really fab for both day & night looks.

Siena is too brown for me and looks muddy on my skin tone;

Crimson is a deep red, this is intense by itself. By layering transparent gloss over it I was able to make it look less overwhelming. Also this can dabbed on lips coated with transparent lip balm to make a light tinted lipbalm.

Lakme had some really nice shades in their Glide-On Lip color line like Rose Shimmer, Honey Crush, Hot Chocolate & Berry, which I loved (They have longer staying power than lip artist - but are also more drying). I would really like to see some similar shades in this line too.

Swatches: Cynthia of India Vanity Case has done some really good swatches here.

These products was sent to me by the company for consideration, however that has not affected my review in any way.
