Finding a perfect lip color that is flattering for your skin tone and a formula that is comfortable and light without making your lips feel heavy or irritated has never been as easy as it is now. The matte formulas that so many brands are coming up with are unbelievably smooth, light and long lasting. Out of the many ranges launched I love the Lakme 9 to 5 matte lip color range the most – it has shades that would go with many skin tones and is affordable. So here is Lakme 9 to 5 Plum Pick lip color review.
Lovely rose gold color bullet, sturdy, travel-friendly.
INR 450 for 3.6grm.
This range of Lakme 9 to 5 lip color contains vitamin E and wheat germ oil with a shelf life of 24 months.
The formula is very comfortable and for matte lips to be so light and easy on lips is rare. Also, the scent is very mild and does not bother or stay for long. It does not dry out lips but for already dry and chapped lips it might end up settling in the crease. A swipe of lip balm under this should make things easy for dry chapped lips.
This is a fresh pinkish plum color and is very flattering for Indian skin tone. Even the shade left after fading is very natural pink. Being well pigmented I usually go with a single swipe on normal days and two swipes would give a deeper shade for an evening out. It has the right amount of matte effect to it, does not look like some paint rubbed on lips, which usually is the case with many of the matte lipsticks. Also plum as a color is difficult to experiment with but that is not the case with this shade, as it has undertones of magenta pink and it works perfectly with any of your makeup looks. This shade from Lakme 9 to 5 matte color range can be your everyday shade.
Lakme 9 to 5 lipstick swatches:
It is a little transferrable and staying power during a normal working day can be taken as 4 hours. Not necessary that you might need a touch-up, especially if you end up liking the color while it is fading.
I have repurchased it twice already. The comfortable and light formula compels me to go for it again.
