Remember this lovely shade by Chambor Powder Matte – “Desert Rose?” The tone of this shade “Blush Velvet” reminds of Desert Rose. The only difference being that it is of cream finish and turns soft matte. On second thoughts, these are like soft matte lip creams. This Blush Velvet from Lakme can be your perfect n*de shade. Take a look:
My Experience with Lakme 9 to 5 Blush Velvet Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Color:
This Lakme Blush Velvet Matte Mousse feels like a lip cream and it gradually turns matte. The color is gorgeous, a neutral shade for fair to medium skin tones. The color does not have too much of brown or pink to it. For fair skin, this is the ideal neutral color. For medium skin tones, you can pull it off. But for deeper skin tones, this could wash you out. The applicator is super cute but I feel I need to dip thrice for full-on application.
The color is an amazing blush too. This can show up only on fair skin as a neutral shade of blush, I love it. I love neutral blushes, so I can layer them on and on without looking crazy. My only issue with this shade is that on the lips, it gets patchy and then it enhances the lip lines as it’s such a light shade.
It lasts again fairly well and I find it to be slightly drying on my normal lips. This shade can be a good pick for fair skin as a blush and lip color. If you are okay with lip lines showing up, go for this one.
Pros of Lakme 9 to 5 Blush Velvet Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Color:
- Light n*de shade for fair to medium skin tones.
- Great day and office wear color.
- Good blush color for day-time wear.
- Good shade to go with smokey eyes.
- Lasts fairly well.
Cons of Lakme 9 to 5 Blush Velvet Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Color:
- Will wash out deeper skin tones.
- Will not show up as a blush on deeper skin tones.
- Could be annoying as this color accentuates lip lines.
