I am really happy today writing this review as new launches thrill me to bits. I went to my local beauty store and was pleasantly surprised to see some new matte lip stuff from Lakme. When I went ahead and swatched them, I saw 10 shades which will cater to most skin tones. Then again, I was happy to see the pricing at INR 575. I brought home six shades. Take a look at my most favorite shade – Plum Feather.
Say ‘No’ to touch ups with this perfect for office wear, Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Matte Lip and Cheek Color. Lakme’s first lip and cheek color comes in a mousse texture that’s weightless, giving a powdery matte finish to lips and a soft blush to your cheeks. Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Matte Lip and Cheer Color is ideal for daily office wear adding charm and lasting long. Its dual benefit makes it a high functional product for the busy and on the go working woman. It looks and feels weightless because of the lightweight formula. Since it’s a mousse texture, it absorbs well, giving an intense color that long-lasting. The applicator brush glides on seamlessly making it easy to apply and giving a smooth and even finish. There are 10 vibrant shades designed especially for both lips and cheeks.
My Experience with Lakme 9 to 5 Plum Feather Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Color:
Well, where should I start?! Matte lip creams are my favorites, no doubt! I was hardly expecting anything out of this one, but when I wore it day in and day out, I was so surprised. The tube is nothing fancy honestly, the tube makes me feel I am using a tester, they could have done something matching or colorful with it. The texture of the product will remind you of Colorbar Deep Matte lip creams, but Lakme one is more matte with the same moist feel to the lips.
This one takes at least two minutes to dry out to a matte finish, but this is not a dry matte lip cream. It has a mousse-like feel, soft texture, and feels non drying. Still the finish is quite matte, powdery matte to my surprise. Who would not want a product like that, matte look, moist feel, and lasts almost all day.
Coming to the lasting power, believe me or not, this product in just one even layer lasted on my lips for 5-6 hours with meals. It did vanish from the centre lightly after meals, but still the product felt very long lasting. Staying power on my cheeks really surprised me. I wore it on my bare skin and trust me, one dot on each cheek gave me a very strong color; this is a very strong color to wear. I loved how the blush looked on my pink skin tone. The blush lasted on me for 6-7 hours! Believe me! May be the pigment on this one is very strong, but still great staying power both as a lip and cheek color.
I also like this shade as this “Plum Feather” is a pinky-plum color, perfect for most skin tones. Matte texture makes it wearable for office too. The idea of matching this mousse on the cheeks is so easy, you do not have dabble with what blush to wear ; you can easily wear this on the cheeks and you are good to go. Very clever!
