Today, I am really excited to share with you my current favorite lip color from Lakme. It is the Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Color in the shade “Blush Work.” I wanted to pick a few shades from the 9 to 5 range based on the recommendations here, but they were out of stock. The SA at Lakme then insisted on trying some other shades and as she swatched a few shades, two particular shades caught my attention. One of them was Blush Work and I just had to buy this pretty coral color.
INR 400 for 3.6 ml.
My Experience with Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Color – Blush Work:
I just love the color of this lipstick; it is a beautiful coral color with gold shimmer. It is more of a peachy coral and not pink. Initially, I was a little hesitant in picking this shade because it contains shimmer, but then when I tried it on my lips, I could not miss picking it up.
The finish is matte but not the kind which will dry out your lips. It is more of the moisture matte type. The pigmentation is good and you can build up the color, but then, the application will be patchy and your lips will look cakey.
The staying power of this lip color is pretty good. It won’t survive from 9 to 5, but will last for 5 hours with light snacks and drinks. It doesn’t survive full meals though. You will have to remove it and re-apply to avoid uneven application. The lipstick settles in fine lines and looks very matte, but I can ignore all of it just for the pretty color.
Pros of Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Color – Blush Work:
- Beautiful coral color.
- Matte finish.
- Decent staying power.
- Attractive packaging.
Cons of Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Color – Blush Work:
- The shimmer!
- Settles in fine lines of the lips.
- Gets patchy when layered.
- Dry lips may not find this appealing.
Do I Recommend Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Color – Blush Work?
Yes, of course! I am in love with the color and if you are too, then do pick this up. I can actually ignore all the cons just because of this pretty color.
