Today, I am going to review one of the favorite lipsticks of my mom. She loves the Lakme Nine to Five range because of its long staying power. Dusk Sparkle is her favorite among the entire range. I myself got her a third “Dust Sparkle.” Since I am busy nowadays searching her makeup collection, I thought I will review this lipstick.
My Experience with Lakme Nine To Five Lip Color – Dusk Sparkle:
Lakme Nine to Five Lip Colors come in a shiny pink colored case. The packaging is definitely nice compared to Lakme Enrich lipsticks, but I find the silver packaging of Lakme Absolute Matte lipsticks to be better than this packaging. The shade name is written at the bottom. I am glad there are no shade numbers. It is really difficult to remember numbers instead of names. The lipsticks are flat on the top. I think the flat top helps in easy application than the curved tops.
Dusk Sparkle is a very pretty, medium brown color with hints of mauve to it. It looks more brown than mauve on lips. It has tiny golden shimmer in it. The shimmer is not at all gritty or overpowering. It is quite subtle and gives a nice sheen to lips instead of being too much visible. This color will suit all complexions. It can be worn at day time, in office and in parties as well. It doesn’t give a matte effect.
The pigmentation of the lipstick is good. A single swipe is enough for complete opaque coverage of my lips. It glides on softly and smoothly on lips. It is soft but not super soft. It doesn’t smudge or bleed. The best thing about this lipstick is that it really stays on for about 6-8 hours on lips. It fades a little after meals. Even when it fades completely, it doesn’t leave any shimmer behind. It is moisturising, so I prefer to apply a lip balm beneath. It doesn’t settle into fine lines. If a lip balm is not applied beneath, my lips start feeling and looking dry.
Pros of Lakme Nine To Five Lip Color – Dusk Sparkle:
- Dusk Sparkle is a very pretty medium brown color with hints of mauve and golden shimmer. It suits all complexions and can be worn casually and at parties.
