The lipsticks come in this beautiful rose gold packaging that looks extremely attractive. I personally love the packaging of these lipsticks which not only look pretty but are also travel friendly as the cap of the lipstick fits snugly and there are no chances of opening of these lipsticks in your purses or handbags.
The formula of the Lakme 9to5 Primer+Matte lipstick is amazing. They glide easily on to the lips and give a good color pay off even on pigmented lips. These lipsticks give a sort of semi-matte finish which I like. But don’t expect it to be completely matte like the finish you get with liquid matte lipsticks. Overall, the formula is really good, moisturizing and feel comfortable on your lips.
MY EXPERIENCE :
I have tried several lipsticks from the brand Lakme for so many years now. Infact Lakme is the one brand from where I had purchased my first lipstick. I think Lakme has come up with one of the best quality lipsticks over the several years. When I came across these Lakme 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Lip Colors, I knew I had to give these lipsticks a try. So, I picked up these five shades which really attracted me. All the five shades that I have chosen are nude shades but every single shade that I am going to talk about is beautiful in itself and are amazing for Indian skin tones.
The five shades that I have chosen are ORCHID DUST, MAUVE MATTER, NUDE TOUCH, ROSY LIPS and ROSE BLISS. I am in love with all the five shades that I have picked up from this collection and I am also looking forward to trying some deeper shades from this range too. I love how each shade beautifully complements my medium to deep skin tone.
Lakme 9to5 Primer+Matte lipstick claims to prime your lips before application of the lipstick which I agree to a certain extent as these lipsticks give a smooth base for easy application of the lipsticks. Also they do not feel drying on your lips and these lipsticks feel smooth and give an intense color pay off in a single stroke. I love how easily these lipsticks glide on your lips without tugging or pulling. They last for a decent amount of time on your lips approximately for around 4 to 4.5 hours with slight eating or drinking. These do tend to fade away from your lips if you eat heavy meals. The lipstick can easily be reapplied on your lips and I like to carry these lipsticks in my purse for an easy touch up. They do not look patchy in any manner.
I think you can certainly buy a few shades from the Lakme 9to5 Primer+Matte lipstick collection as these are good quality lipsticks which are not that costly and I like the fact that these lipsticks fall in the mid-range of Rs 500 which I think is affordable for a vast majority of people.
ORCHID DUST is a mix of pink, brown and has a hint of orange in it too. It’s a gorgeous nude shade which will suit all skin tones.
MAUVE MATTER is a lovely nude pinkish, mauve color which will suit fair to medium skin tones.
NUDE TOUCH is one of my favourites and looks lovely on medium skin tones. It’s a perfect nude shade for so many skin tones.
ROSY LIPS is another one of my favourites and is a true pinky nude color that looks so flattering on fair to medium skin tones.
ROSE BLISS is quite similar to Rosy Lips. Nevertheless it’s a gorgeous shade too.
