Lakme Glide on Lip Pencils - Review


What it claims: Glide On is a lip pencil that glides on smoothly, stays creamy, and keeps lipstick, gloss, and lip tint from feathering out of bounds. Use it to define your lip-line or fill your lips with a coat of sumptuous color in shades of barely-there nudes to crushed ginger shades.
It can also be layered with Enrich Matte Lipcolor for added intensity.

Price: I got these at Rs. 250 a piece; I believe the prices have been increased now.


In shade (L to R): Rose Shimmer, Honey Crush, Berry Passion & Hot Chocolate
Pros:
1.      Very creamy, very smooth lip pencil – this is the one lip pencil that never dries out my lips.

2.      Pigmented – this is a highly pigmented pencil & 2-3 swipes provides pretty good coverage even on naturally pigmented lips


3.      Long lasting – this pencil stays on for 3-4 hours
In sunlight (L to R): Rose Shimmer, Honey Crush, Berry Passion & Hot Chocolate


4.      Nice shades – I really like the shades in this range – they are prefect & will suit almost all


Cons:
1.      Doesn’t work so well with gloss – the color starts to melt into the gloss altering the gloss shade & also doesn’t last as long.

2.      Lips need to be smooth & flake free for it to be used by itself – tends to emphasize dryness.

Will I repurchase: I’ll like Rose Shimmer the best from the lot so I’ll definitely be getting that one again.  While these are more expensive than Jordana (which retail for some 100 bucks) – they are also much better in quality & smoothness.

    @Retnu: Thks :)

    @Rashmi: hmmm, i don't know if they have improved.. i have had these for quite a while now - 8 mnths I think..

    @Bhumika: I know I love RS too :)

    @Anamika: Yup, honey crush = nude lips for indian women :)

    @Simran: Hmm, kind of yes, it makes the lipstick last longer & also makes the lip outline more structured - imp when you are doing a bold lip look :)
