I have been reading about the Lakme 9 to 5 lipsticks all over the blogging world and thus bought one for myself.
I have been blogging much less now-a-days, and the reason is my busy schedule in office and rest of the time taking care of my family. But with this lipstick there’s a chain of reviews of brands like Kryolan, MAC, etc coming up. Now let me share my experience with the new lipstick in my stash.
About Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Color:
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 crème color.
My Experience with Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Color- Wildberry Wednesday:
Packaging: Oh! I loved the packaging. It looks so chic and classy. It’s a light glossy pink colored packaging with the name engrossed in a digital way. Comes in a cardboard cover which looks good too. It’s very sturdy and the cap fits tight so no coming off in the purse or hand bags. The name of the shade is written in the bottom.
Shade: The shade Wildberry Wednesday is a Barbie pink color with silver shimmers. The shade is an everyday wear shade and also a great choice for parties. The shimmers aren’t chunky but visible in bright light.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is just fabulous and a single swipe is too much for the opaque color. If swiped twice or thrice, it becomes streaky due to rich in pigmentation and layering.
Texture: The texture is creamy matte with shimmers. Due to rich pigmentation, texture becomes streaky and makes the lips dry after few hours.
Staying Power: The staying power as claimed by the brand is not true as per my experience. It stays perfectly for 2-3 hours but after that becomes streaky and settles in fine lines which results in uneven fading of the color. If you will have a meal in between then the uneven fading looks bad on the lips and thus it may need full wiping off the lipstick and re-applying.
What I Like about Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Color- Wildberry Wednesday:
- Pretty and attractive packaging
- Available easily
- Does not hurt the pockets
- Beautiful Barbie pink color
- Extremely rich in pigmentation
What I don’t like about Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Color- Wildberry Wednesday:
- Shimmers present
- Texture is heavy and streaky
- Staying power as claimed is not true
- Makes lips dry
- Fades unevenly
Final Thoughts: I hoped these lipsticks to come up to the claims but still I loved the shade which is a very pretty pink. Lakme please work on the texture and staying power.
Will I recommend? The texture of these lipsticks may differ in different shades, so ladies if you have already tried any shade from this range, do share your experience please.
