You might have read my reviews on the shades “Maroon Mix” and “Ruby Rush” from Lakme’s 9 to 5 Primer + Matte range. Here comes another pretty red lipstick with some orange tone from Here is another pretty red with some orange, from this new and improved Lakme 9 to 5 collection. If you love reds, this can be yours then 🙂

For a precision pro-matte finish, line your lips with the Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Liner before applying the Lakme 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Lip Color. Sets a flawless base and evens out your lips for smooth application. Highly pigmented shades that have rich and intense color payoff. Delivers a fine matte finish on your lips that last up to 12 hours.
My Experience with Lakme 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Lipstick Scarlet Surge:
This lipstick comes in a beautiful metallic rose gold sort of a packaging. It click locks and I find the overall appeal very enticing.
This range has some repetitive shades from the earlier 9 to 5 range. “Scarlett Surge” is a pretty bright red color with orange tones to it. I think any skin tone will be able to rock it.
The texture is smooth but not buttery or creamy. It is smooth enough for a matte lipstick, never feels powdery or dry to me. It can be built in layers and I love thick coats of this lipstick. In one swipe, you do get full color, true to the color in the tube. The primer element in it kind of fills up the lip lines, but overall, the lipstick is very similar to the previous 9 to 5 lipsticks. If you have very dry lips, this can seem uncomfortable to you.

Cons of Lakme 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Lipstick Scarlet Surge:
