With every new lipstick range launch – the claims and formulas that the brands are coming up with are surprising and tempting. Similar was the case with the launch of Lakme’s 9 to 5 creaseless crème lipstick! CREASELESS: sounds fairytale like. We all would love to grab a product that would give our lips a creaseless look and that is how I ended up buying a shade from Lakme 9 to 5 range – coral case. Read ahead for Lakme 9 to 5 lipstick review.
The lipstick case is rose gold in color. Easy to carry, sturdy, tight cap and roll up style tube.
INR 450 for 3.6 gram
Ingredients or Description:
Lakme 9 to 5 creaseless creme lipsticks have Vitamin E, olive oil, jojoba oil that keep lips nourished and healthy all day long with the shelf life of 24 months.
Although the description states it has SPF 15, vitamin E, olive oil, jojoba oil, I did not find it smooth: be it with the application or the feel of the product on lips. It has a tendency to bleed and at the same time looks chalky if you swipe it multiple times. Also, the feel of this lipstick is not as pleasant or light as the Lakme 9 to 5 matte lip color range. The creaseless claim – NO, it badly highlights the crease by settling in and top it with shimmer! Looks gross.
As the name says it is a coral peach color. It also has shimmer particles which I, personally, am not a fan of. Anything with a touch of glossiness is okay but the shimmer in lip products does not compliment the lip, or the shade or even the overall look one is trying to achieve. Coverage is poor, might look pigmented on your skin when you swatch but not good enough when on lips. A single swipe is not that effective. It will suit only pale skin tone.
Lakme 9 to 5 lipstick swatches:
Not at all good. 2 hrs.
2/5 only for the SPF at such an affordable rate.
Do I recommend buying this product?
Pros of Lakme 9 to 5 Coral Case:
- Sturdy packing
- No sharp or sweet scents
Cons of Lakme 9 to 5 Coral Case:
- Formula is not light or easy on lips
- Staying power is poor
- Coverage is poor and multiple swipes give it a chalky, dry look
- Bleeds from corners of the lip if swiped multiple times
- Highlights the lip crease even more
What if you have already bought Coral Case Crease-Less Creme?
Swipe a cherry red or maroon tinted lip balm on your lips before applying coral case lipstick. This should make application smooth and less chalky and also give a deeper tone to this peachy coral color.
