LAKME Enrich Matte Lipstick RM15 Review, Photos and Swatches

Hello everyone,
Today I am here with a review of another newly launched Lakme Enrich matte rut, clipstick. Hope you have already checked the review of PM15. if not, click Here.
Basically there are 20 shades categorized into 5 shade families, i.e. Red Matte (RM), Pink Matte (PM), Orange Matte (OM) WM (Wine Matte), and BM (Brown Matte). You can check the swatches of all the shades here. I have bought two from the range and the one I am going to review today is from their Red Matte (RM) family and the shade number is 15. This time I stepped out of my comfort zone and picked a shade that I normally wouldn't even imagine myself wearing.

There is a dearth of budget friendly matte lipsticks in India. Not every time we can spend hundreds and thousands of rupees on a matte lipstick to suit our wants and needs, isn’t it? So naturally I was very much eager to lay my hands on these beauties.

So let us see if Lakme could come up to my expectations or not…

295 INR

The lipstick comes housed in a plastic silver case with a clear cap. The bullet case further comes inside a shiny silver box. I didn’t like the packaging much as it looks more like a tester.

A sultry, dark rose red. The color is gorgeous; it is bold and is very beautiful.

Texture and Finish:-
Soft, smooth and glides beautifully. It goes without tugging or pulling. But when you try to layer, it becomes streaky and ends up in uneven application. I ended up having patchy color all over my lips and chunky pigments deposited in my lip lines. It was not that my lips were dry and non-exfoliated. See...even the hand swatch is patchy.
When applied freshly it has a satiny, semi- matte finish and about 20 minutes later it settles into a matte finish.

Color Payoff and Staying Power:-
Insanely pigmented and one swipe is enough for the full coverage. It stayed for about 7 hours on my lips with food and drinks in between. After that it left a dark tint behind. The tint can only be removed with a makeup remover.

Summing up my Likes and Dislikes:-

  • Beautiful color.
  • Soft texture.
  • Feels light on lips.
  • Gorgeous, comfortable matte finish.
  • Opaque in one swipe.
  • Stays pretty long.
  • Budget friendly.
  • Easily available.
  • The smell. It reminds me of a cough syrup I used to hate during my childhood days.
  • The packaging could be improved.
  • Becomes streaky, patchy when layered.
  • Sinks into lip lines.
Final Thoughts:-
Lakme has done a really commendable job in shade selection this time. From reds, pinks, oranges to browns, wine and purples, they are available in a palette of 20 vibrant and trendy shades.
Talking about
 RM15, the color is gorgeous; settles into a matte finish and stays long. And the best part is it doesn’t burn your pocket. But it gives uneven coverage and sinks into lines terribly. Prepping lips doesn’t help either.

We don’t get good, affordable matte lipsticks in India and this one solves the problem. So if you want a great matte lip color that comes at an unbeatable drugstore price and that doesn’t make your lips feel like deserts then this range is for you. But I recommend the other colors of this range, not this one.



  1. Gorgeous color but streaky and patchy application is a turn down.

  6. The color looks fab on you...but in lipswatches I can see the patchiness like you mentioned and erggghhh the cough syrup smell i Dread...I'm going to check out other colors though :)
