If you know me, I am not much of a makeup person but over the last couple of months, during planning outfits and shoots I have made every use of online makeup tutorials on YouTube. My favourite cosmetic product has always been lipsticks; absolutely love them and the overall look it gives me! Lakme is one of my cherished brands as their lipstick Lakme Enrich Matte lipsticks was one lip colour I wore on almost everything!
This time I decided to experiment with the Lakme 9 TO 5 Primer + Matte Lipstick. I got through this lipstick after hunting for some new colours on the Myntra’s Big Sale! The shade I picked up was Fuchsia File
Price : INR 480

My Experience With This Lakme 9To5 Matte Lip Colour!
Lakme has always been a very prestigious cosmetic brand; and when they introduced their new re-vamped version of the primer lipstick I was excited! The packaging is simple; it comes in a short, rose gold exterior. I think it looks extremely classy and that’s how it caught my attention amongst the many other choices I had.
The colour is a classy but vibrant pink and added a glow on my face which I absolutely loved! The fragrance is a bit mild; but the 9To5 Matte Lip Colour is my perfect companion for everyday to office. The lipstick application is smooth and as per my use, definitely stayed for about 5-6 hours even after meals. Maybe after that it fades out a bit towards the centre. To remove this lip colour I use baby wipes with just one swipe; and its gone!
-An everyday lipstick for work/college
-The matt finish leaves the lips moisturized
-Lasts for about 5 hours minimum
-This colour may not suit every skin-tone
-Colour appears a bit faded towards the end
A bold matte lipstick like this particular brand is the perfect addition to the face with a bit of a minimal kajal. That was my review of the Lakme 9 to 5 Primer and Matte Lip Colour.
