My experience with Lakme Nine To Five Lip Color – Coral Incentive

Firstly, this shade is a coral one. There are other coral shades in this range. But this shade is quite unique and I am in love with this shade. First of all, the color suits most of the Indian skin tones. True coral it is and this brightens up face instantly. This shade is on lighter side and gives a natural matte pinkish coral finish on your lips.


The texture is so smooth and it glides on the lips very easily. It also gives a subtle healthy glow on your face. This is kind of a one-swipe-type lip color. If I apply it too much, it looks cakey. Also this has a very faint smell which is not weird at all.

Lakme nine to five lip colors are so buttery and don’t dry out my lips. This is a very good choice for day wear. I don’t find it heavy on my lips. It stays there just like a feather.

This shade is not so highly pigmented but is not bad either. But more pigmented lips may find it lighter for them and may not get full coverage. It also has a very good staying power. It stays there for almost 4 hours without a meal. But it transfers anyway. It also stays after a meal if you eat carefully. But it fades away a little from the centre of the lips. You have to reapply after 3 to 4 hours.
