Hello IMBB Sweeties,
After going through previous post of Lakme Nine to Five Kohl Ultimate swatches, many of you were quite interested in purchasing this new beauty from Lakme but its price was a turn off for all. 🙁 I bought this Kohl some three weeks back. I had no intention to buy this, after reading posts of Rati and Sabrina on Lakme Satin Kajal, I had gone to buy that. But returned back buying this. :tongue: It always happens this way with me. I bought this Kohl, after seeing its swatches with the tester that the SA provided me. Even the SA was wearing the same, and I saw it was intense black, the one I have always wanted. :woot:
Price- Rs 650, I got this after discount at Rs- 602
What Company Says: (Not mentioned in the website, I kept what Rati had mentioned in her previous post) “Lakme has launched a kohl in its nine to five range, namely Lakme Nine to five Kohl Ultimate. Blink or wink as you indulge in the luxury of deep black with Lakme Nine to Five kohl ultimate. A 3 in 1 smooth kohl stick that is just one stroke, pampers your eyes with rich color as well as moisturizes. Grab one and treat your eyes to the style and comfort it deserves.”

- It has a claim of 8 hour stay: Steal that all day fresh eye makeup look with this smudge -proof and water – proof formula that lasts up to 8 hours.
- Dermatologist tested : beauty Now comes with safety

Ingredients: Moisturizing Ceramides (Nothing else mentioned)
This is the cute sharpener provided with the Kohl.
The smudger is made up of rubber and is slanted, I like smudgers with sponge tip, others may like this one.
This is what you get after one swipe, isn’t it really black?
I have used Kajal from Lotus, Jovees, Biotique, Streetwear, Lakme( Previous one), but never got that smudgeproof intense black look that I have always desired. I have several Kajals with me now but do not use them much. I had gone to buy Lakme Satin kajal but the SA showed me this and I realized this is what I have always wanted. It’s very soft, glides smoothly; one needs just one 1-2 swipes for the intense black look. When I applied this one on my waterline, it did not sting at all. Once you apply, it sets and it doesn’t smudge even a bit with the smudger. God knows why they provided the smudger, may be to attract customers. One cannot do smoky look with this kohl. Its staying power is really high. Stays for 6-7 hours with little bit fading. This is better than anything I have in my collection. :yahoo: :thumbsup:

Cons of Lakme Nine to Five Kohl Ultimate
-The price is pretty high for the product. :stars: :pan:
-Complete list of ingredients not mentioned.
-The Lakme website does not mention about this kohl.
-You cannot smudge it just after applying the kohl. :nono:
-Very soft and thus prone to breakage.
Shall I purchase this again? :nono: No I won’t buy this again because of its price. I get nearly the same result with Maybelline New York Colossal kajal.
Overall Recommendation: One can keep at least one of these in their collection if there is not much constrain on the budget. Otherwise Maybelline kajal is quite good.
