LAKME 9 TO 5 WEIGHTLESS MATTE MOUSSE LIP & CHEEK COLOR; MY THOUGHTS

Lakme has recently come out with their new lip products in their 9 to 5 range, Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color. A product that can be used in multiple ways! This was more than enough for me to get my hands on this ASAP. So I gifted myself the shade 'Burgundy Lush'. 😊



Product Description:

An explosion of colour to your daily makeup routine, LakmΓ© 9to5 Mousse Lip and Cheek Color is here.

LakmΓ©’s first ever lip color in a mousse texture is super weightless and can be used as a cheek tint too. Available in 10 intense and vibrant shades, they last long and have a powdery matte finish. It’s 2 in 2 formula makes it an instant everyday favourite for the modern Indian woman of today.


Price & Availability:

Rs. 575. Available online and in stores.


My Experience:

The lip & cheek color is available in 10 beautiful shades and comes in a tube packaging. It has the beautiful rose gold tube with a silver cap. However, it still feels like a sample product. It has no details apart from the shade name at the bottom. It is also missing the shade demarcation and the packaging is same for all of them. It has a doe foot applicator which makes the application very precise and covers the lips completely.



Coming to the texture, I am in love with it! It has a smooth, velvety mousse like texture which is very light and you will not even feel it on your lips. Highly pigmented and it gives an opaque coverage with just one swipe. The lip color is very smooth, dries off with a velvety matte finish and does not dehydrate my lips at all. However, it starts settling into the fine lines after 3-4 hours.

Since Burgundy Lush (a brick/burgundy shade) is a dark shade, it stays on the lips for about 5- 6 hours. However, it tends to wear off from the centre of the lips if you eat/drink something.

The mousse lip & cheek color takes 30 - 40 seconds to dry up hence it needs to be worked quickly when used as a cheek tint. These are a bit difficult to blend after it sets. Since these are also very pigmented, a little bit of product does the magic on the cheek.




Swatch:



Pros:

  • Highly pigmented 
  • Smooth and velvety texture which is very comfortable to wear
  • Does not dehydrate the lips
  • The doe foot applicator is a perfect one to apply the lipstick
  • Works perfectly as both lip & cheek colour
  • Travel friendly

Cons:
  • Dull packaging with no shade demarcation
  • Settles into the fine lines of the lips
  • Cannot survive a full meal and starts fading at the centre
  • Seems to be a bit pricey

How It Looks On Me:



Rating:

4/5

Overall I am happy with the product as it is apt for the 9 to 5 timing. Highly pigmented, soft & light on the lips and good staying power. With a few hits and a few misses, Burgundy Lush is a beautiful brick red shade which is perfect for the upcoming festive season. 

Let me know if you have tried other shades and which one is your favourite πŸ˜ƒ

Until then...
Ciao!!
