Top 10 Lakme Picks from Great Indian Diwali Sale at


Hey everyone!

Amazon India is hosting the Great Indian Diwali Sale and I recently posted about my top 10 picks here. Since I had a lot of favorites to recommend from Lakme, I thought of doing a separate post for my top Lakme picks from the sale! Lakme is one brand that I’ve explored really well and these are the products that I’ve picked out for you –


Lakme Eyeconic Green Kajal

Lakme Eyeconic Green Kajal


1. Lakme Eyeconic Kajal – Green  Rs 275 Rs 250

The Eyeconic kajals are creamy, have excellent color pay off and stay really well on the eyes. The black variant is the classic but my favorite is the green one! Its amazing by itself as a liner or kajal and can be paired with a green eye shadow to create a stunning green smokey eye! It looks gorgeous on brown/black eyes and I highly recommend it!


2. Lakme Youth Infinity Serum  Rs 899 Rs 674

I’m not the biggest fan of Lakme skincare but I do like the Youth Infinity range a lot! The serum is something I had used prior to my wedding and it had worked quite well for me. It hydrates and plumps up the skin and gives it a healthier look and feel. It feels like a light lotion and sinks into the skin completely. Its a great one to incorporate in your routine if you’re in your late 20s or early 30s and looking to start using serums.

3. Lakme 9 to 5 Matte Lipstick – Toffee Nexus  Rs 450 Rs 318

I LOVE Lakme lipsticks! I think they make really great colors for Indian skin. The 9-to-5 mattes are absolutely amazing and while I have several shades from this range, Toffee Nexus is one of my top picks. Its an earth toned shade that is perfect for daily wear. Its not a nude so doesn’t wash you out and suits a variety of complexions. The formula is soft and smooth, not moisturizing but not drying either. I’ve used this my video with HERE.

4. Lakme 9 To 5 Lip Liner – Brick Rose Rs 400 Rs 300

I recommend Lakme Lip liners to everyone who asks for recommendations and I myself own several of these. Brick Rose is an amazing neutral tone color – particularly great on medium to deep skin while Red Alert is a classic red that works amazingly with all red lipsticks. These lip pencils have a smooth texture, excellent color pay off and are not as drying as most lip liners I’ve tried.

5. Lakme Absolute Creme Lip Color – Sheer Berry Rs 700 Rs 525

Sheer Berry is a beautiful everyday pink lip color. Its a dusty rose shade which would work amazingly well across skin tones and if you’re looking for a creamy, hydrating, everyday pink lipstick, I would definitely recommend this!


6. Lakme Complexion Care Face Cream – Bronze  Rs 700 Rs 525

This is an old favorite that I’ve repurchased a couple of times. Among the low and mid range BB/CC/Tinted creams, this is one of the best ones. I use the shade Bronze which is slightly warm for me but works. It gives light to medium coverage, has a satin finish and works with most skin types. It also has SPF20 so its ideal for daily wear (though no PA++ protection so don’t skip your sunblock!).

7. Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Rs 725 Rs 543

This is a jet black, super rich and creamy kohl with phenomenal staying power. It also comes with a smudger at the other end so doing a quick smoky kohl look is super easy with this. I’ve gone through at least 3 pencils of this before I got distracted by newer launches in the market. But I still recommend this to people who are looking for a rich, long wearing kohl. Highly recommended!



Lakme Youth Infinity Skin Firming Night Creme - Review

8. Lakme Youth Infinity Skin Firming Night Creme Rs 725 Rs 543

The Youth Infinity night creme is another gem from Lakme’s skin care range. I used this in the months leading up to my wedding and it worked really well in hydrating and firming my skin. I also continued to use this when I first moved to Japan and it really helped take care of dryness and dullness that I was facing because of the change. The cream is rich but doesn’t feel greasy. It has a mild pleasant scent and I really like the texture, feel and results overall!


9. Lakme Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse  Rs 700 Rs 525

When Lakme has first introduced the Absolute range few years back, the mousse was an instant favorite! The round shiny packaging, the light whipped texture, the smoothing feel and natural coverage – I like everything about this product. The staying power is amazing too and I would recommend this to someone looking for a good day wear light coverage foundation. Its easy to use with your fingers and you needn’t worry about brushes etc with this one.



Lakme 9-to-5 Eye Color Quartet Tanjore Rush

10. Lakme 9 to 5 Eye Color Quartet Eye Shadow – Tanjore Rush  Rs 550 Rs 412

My last pick is an old classic from Lakme which has been around since ages! The Tanjore Rush eye quad contains 4 beautiful festive eye shadow colors that work really well on Indian skin. The jewel tones really pop on the eyes and if you’re looking for some festive colors, you can’t go wrong with this palette!

I do have a lot of other favorites from Lakme, like the Sculpt Matte lipsticks but they aren’t on sale unfortunately this time!

    Lovely picks Ankita. I used Lakme's skin care but for some I never purchased a single makeup item from the brand. I think its time I should start using Lakme makeup…

    i really liked the eyeconic kajal one of my favorite.. but next m going to try Lotus kajal.. that is so good.. doesn't smudge…

  9. October 28, 2015 / 12:50 pm

    I do not like lip pencils which need to be sharpened. The remaining picks are amazing!! I also love the green eye-conic liner. They are smudge proof and long staying.

  10. October 28, 2015 / 12:54 pm

    Both Toffee Nexus and Red Chaos are amazing shades. and They feel so creamy on this lips
