Lakme’ NEW 9 to 5 Lipstick- Mauve Paced review & swatches

Lets now talk about a stunning mauve brown shade that is an absolute HIT!!!

ABOUT: Say no to Touch Ups! Lakmé 9 to 5 range consists of a wide collection for daily office wear with subtle shades that require no touch-ups through the day, providing an impeccably styled look and allowing a hassle-free transition from the desk to the office party. This range aims at the “no touch ups” theme.


PRICE: Rs. 400 for 3.6 ml

PACKAGING: The packaging is classy and very appealing. It is very decent with a champagne pink metallic bullet having the shade name at the bottom. The packaging is sturdy.


SHADE: This shade is a stunner.It brightens up my face while being subtle.I like the mauve brown combination.


TEXTURE, FINISH & STAYING POWER: I like the creamy texture of the lipstick. It is very buttery and goes on smoothly on lips that soon settles to a matte finish.It is  light weight and non-sticky.It feels so buttery on lips and provides a satiny finish initially!!



 The lipstick settles to a matte finish and can be a bit drying for dry lips. I suggest application of  a lip balm underneath. Due to the matte finish,it accentuates dry flaky lips so proper exfoliation is very necessary. The shade is subtle and great  for office wear .

The lipstick is decently pigmented and one swipe will cover the lips properly. Also, although it gets matte but it doesn’t gets over drying which is a major advantage as it prolongs the wear of the lipstick without being drying. Staying power is not fully 9 to 5 but it stays comfortable for 5-6 hours.
