Lakme has made a name for itself in the Indian middle-class household with its excellent quality of products which do not burn a hole in your wallet. Read on to discover the top products from the beauty giant that’ll give you a ‘summer glow’ without the ‘summer shine’!
1. Lakme CC Cream (Rs 299)
Being a collegegoer is difficult, what with running to and fro amidst classes, coupled with the added responsibility of looking trendy on a tight budget. If you’re looking for a light-weight tinted moisturizer to brighten your complexion while providing slight coverage then your search ends here. The Lakme CC cream adds a healthy glow to your facial skin without adding pounds of coverage, making you look flawless and beautiful!
2. Lakme Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse (Rs 700)
If you’re looking to invest a bit more in a foundation-esque product, then look no further than the Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse. It provides a slightly higher coverage than the CC cream, which provides a resplendent ‘no-makeup’ look.
3. Lakme Perfect Radiance Intense Whitening Compact with SPF 20 (Rs 210)
This is a dual utility product. You can use the compact to set your foundation or CC cream in place and bid adieu to the sweaty shine. Alternately, you can skip the CC cream altogether and just use the compact to enliven your face.

The Pure Rouge blusher range from Lakme is a pressed powder which provides a sheer application. It gives a natural glow to the apples of your cheeks, thus defining your features.

Your college look-book is incomplete without a dash of kajal. Lakme eyeconic kajal has been a staple in every college girl’s vanity bag, and why not? Despite the market being flooded with kohls, none can beat the quality and affordability of this time-tested favorite.
6. Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara (Rs 375)
Another ‘wonder-product’ from the Eyeconic range is their Curling Mascara (available in two colors-black and blue) which is completely water-proof and smudge-proof.
