It’s the festive season and I had come home for 3 days. I went shopping with my mom and had great fun. My mom insisted me to get some Lipcolors from the Lakme 9 to 5 reinvent range. Today’s review is on the 11 shades I bought from Lakme 9 to 5 reinvent range.
Rs.400 for 3.6ml
What the company claims:
Lakme nine to five brings you a range of shades that sit on your lips all day long. Enriched with Vitamin E; it conditions your lips and softens them with wheat germ oil. So, perk those soft, smooth lips with a touch of matte.
My experience with Lakme 9 to 5 Reinvent Lip Color:
I don’t have many lipsticks in my closet so bought these. The packaging of this lip colors is quite classy. It is also travel friendly. The Lipcolors have that typical lipcolor smell. The lipcolor glides on easily without any hassle and are moisturizing. The staying power as claimed by the company is not that commendable. It doesn’t stay on for 9 to 5 but just for 2-3 hours. If you have meals in between it would fade away very quickly. The best part of these Lipcolors is that they are matte but not dry or cakey. They leave lips very soft and smooth. They don’t have any shimmer in them. You need to apply these Lipcolors 2 times to get the perfect shade. The Lipcolors are decently pigmented and even the lightest shade is good for pigmented lips.
Coming on to the shades that I bought, Pink aggressive is a shade which is neither too dark nor too light. It looks pretty and is decent for a casual look. Toffee nexus is a light brown shade. When applied on lips it goes for a perfect nude look. Pink colar is the lightest shade in this range. It is a baby pink shade which goes down well with everything. Bronze award is another brown shade in this range. It may not go with every skin tone and would suit wheatish skin tones the best.
Rose management is a light peach shade. It looks more like pink when applied on lips. Cabamet category is a dark brown shade. People who love brown lipcolors would definitely love this shade. Cherry chic is an orange shade. It looks like a coral orange shade and is perfect for summers.
Penny goal is a light plum shade. It has purple undertones to it. Oak table is another orange shade in this range. It is a bit darker and looks like a mixture of brown and orange when applied on lips. Mulberry work is another plum shade. It is a shade which goes on well with any skin tone. Wildberry Wednesday is another pink shade in this range. It is my favourite shade in this range and it would suit fair skin tones a lot.
