All you had to do was swipe the kajal pencil across your waterline. And voilà ! You’ve got kohl-rimmed eyes without any hassle!
If you believe that your eyes feel naked without kajal, then well, you’re not alone. Kajal instantly adds more definition to your eyes and makes them look brighter.

2. Lakmé Radiance Complexion Compact
If you’re a 90’s kid (just like me), then I’m sure compact foundation was the first ever foundation you got your hands on. Before the beauty world introduced us to liquid, cream and stick foundations, it was the humble compact that helped us create the perfect base.

From crayon, matte to gloss, Lakmé products have a zillion options to pick from. But, the Lakme Enrich Matte Lipstick is still a cult classic. This collection has a shade for every mood.

7. Lakmé Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 40 Pa+++ Compact
Do you know the deal with sunscreen? You can’t expect it to work wonders by applying it just once before leaving the house. Ask any skin expert and they’ll tell you that to keep your skin protected from UV rays, you need to reapply sunscreen every two or three hours.
You obviously cannot use a gel or lotion formula to reapply sunscreen over makeup. That’s when this miracle Lakmé product comes to your rescue! We are talking about the Lakmé Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 40 Pa+++ Compact which is non-sticky, non-greasy, lightweight and blocks up to 97 percent of harmful rays, and is perfect for on-the-go touch ups!.
8. Lakmé 9 to 5 Complexion Care CC Cream
Concealers and colour correctors do wonders to your skin, no doubt. They conceal problem areas such as blemishes, acne scars and pigmentation as well as help even out your skin tone.
The Lakmé 9 to 5 Complexion Care CC Cream is apt for everyday use. This Lakmé product moisturizes and refreshes your skin, protects it from the harmful sun rays and conceals blemishes and uneven skin tone. Whether you’re heading out for a brunch or a date night, you can totally swap your heavy-duty concealer with a CC cream for sheer coverage.
9. Lakmé Peach Milk Moisturiser SPF 24 PA++
While transitioning from summers to winters, it’s ideal to tweak your skincare routine to suit the cold weather conditions. Your lightweight moisturisers are going to do no good to your skin in the dry, winter months.

10. Lakmé Lip Love Chapstick
Just like you need sunscreen all throughout the year, you need a lip balm with SPF regardless of the season. From healing cracks and moisturising dried tissue to protecting your lips from harmful UV rays, a lip balm can do wonders to your lips. It is a must-have in your vanity kit especially if you regularly apply matte lipsticks. Some matte or liquid lipsticks can dry out your lips. It is, therefore, important to apply a layer of lip balm before you go in with your lipstick.
The Lakme Lip Love Chapstick will help you say goodbye to dry lips and provide nourishment for up to 22 hours. With SPF 15, this Lakme products is ideal for all seasons.
