Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Color – Red Letter Review

Hello everyone,

Here is the review of the second shade from the 9 to 5 lip color range by Lakme which came home with me during my recent haul. I was already impressed with the formulation, so I just picked up the shade just by looking at the name. Read on to know more about the shade in particular.

Rs. 450/- for 3.6 ml.

My Experience with Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Color – Red Letter:

The packaging has been described a lot many times in the previous reviews. I would not repeat the same; only that this is gorgeous and travel friendly. Only glitch is that the tube is not color coded in anyway, so if you have more than one from the same line you have to remember the names.


The shade is perfectly named, an awesome shade of red with beautiful coral undertones. Goes on super smooth on the lips with absolutely no flaking or smudging. The initial creamy lip color settles to a matte finish, which is really comfortable without any balm at base or top. For my normal lips, it does not dry out the lips. If you have super dry lips, you need to prep the lips with a balm beforehand.

It stayed on my lips for more than 5 hours without feathering, with mini meals in-between. Lip liner can be totally skipped with the shade.


I believe with a lip liner the staying power would definitely increase considerably. The color does not vanish completely but neither does it leave any cheap stain behind.

There is no funny smell, only a bit of cosmetic smell which disappears almost immediately on application. I am loving the shade and texture of this line in particular. You have to check out this shade if you are a berry lover, you will love it.
