My Experience with Lakme 9 to 5 Crease-less Creme Lipstick – Caramel Cut:
Packaging: The Lakme 9 to 5 creme lipstick comes in the signature style rose gold packaging which looks super attractive and feminine. We all know a woman’s love for rose gold, so, it might totally pull the attention. The lipstick is very handy and twists up well too. The twist mechanism works well in some lipsticks and in some, it doesn’t work that well. The shade variety is super wide and every woman might find some shades of her liking. Also, the pricing is pretty reasonable according to their offering, so it is cool.
Shade: The shade “Caramel cut” is a very wearable brown shade. It is a very common shade, nothing different and easily dupable as well. It can be one of the on-the-go shades for offices or probably just daily-wear. It is a nice nude brown shade for fair to medium skin-tones and a perfect shade for dusky skin tones. It does make you look a lot mature, so not a great shade for the younger generation. But in all a nice neutral!
Finish and Pigmentation: The finish of the lipstick is creamy but sooner or later it does turn to a semi-matte finish. The pigmentation is really good and the entire colour comes up in the first swipe itself, but, I apply two swipes to make the colour look more intense. The colour is very buildable; one swipe gives a nice nude shade and building it up gives a nice neutral brown shade.
Staying Power: The staying power of this one is pretty good. It stays for somewhere around 4-5 hours which is really great at that price. It does transfer to cups and tissues since it has a super creamy finish. It does not settle in between fine lines but, might accentuate the dry patches on the lips. But, exfoliating the lips or using a lip balm will give a perfect look. It does survive meals and a little colour gets ripped off every time I eat or sip. But, I am very happy with the staying power. And it comes off easily too. A perfect lipstick, go ahead and choose your shades.
