Hello lovelies, how are you all doing? Today I’ll be reviewing my current favorite lipstick which I’m wearing almost daily to college. Its Lakme 9 to 5 lipstick in “Coffee Command”. Well, I know I’m the last one to review this lipstick but I couldn’t stop myself from sharing with you all how much I love the shade. Without wasting much time, let’s get into the details.
Price: INR 400 for 4.2g
Shelf Life: 2 years from the date of manufacture
What the Product Claims: Combines amazing comfort with staying power that keeps you looking fresh for hours. With a long wearing comfort technology. Offers a creamy color with colorfix technology. Ensures 10 hours of intense creme color.
My Take on the Product: The product comes in a rose-gold metallic packaging which looks very classy. The packaging is sturdy and travel friendly. Coming to the shade, it is a lovely peachy-nude shade. It could be a perfect MLBB shade for fair to medium skin tones.
This lipstick is from the Lakme 9 to 5 office stylist range, so all the shade has been created keeping office goers in mind and for daily use. The lipstick stays on my lips for almost4-5 hours. Since the finish is on the matte side, it might be difficult to pull off without a lip balm underneath especially for girls with dry lips.
It is recommended to exfoliate your lips before applying this lipstick since it may accentuate chapped lips. The lipstick is lightweight and does not feel heavy on my lips.
Since I have slightly pigmented lips, I need to apply 2-3 swipes for the color to show up. It gives full coverage in 2 swipes only and the color could be built up gradually. The texture is creamy and smooth but still I use a lip balm underneath. The lipstick has a sweet fragrance and I really liked it.
Overall, this lipstick is great for everyday wear and could be tried by office and college goers who like to wear neutral colors.
Pros:1. Classy packaging
3. Wonderful shade
4. Decent staying power
Cons: 1.Can be too drying for dry lips
2. Might not look good on dusky beauties
My Rating: 4/5
Will I Repurchase It Again?: I might try other shades from this range :).
