Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick Pink Slip Review, Swacthes & FOTD – Everyone loves a superior performer -be it in movies, real life or long lasting makeup! Obviously I ain’t gonna ramble about life girls! Lakme 9-5 Pink Slip lipstick is my review for the day and this is what I have to say about it
About Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick:
Say ‘No’ to touch ups with this perfect for office wear. LakmeNine to Five brings you a range of 15 shades that sit on your lips all day long. Enriched with Vitamin E; it conditions your lips & softens them with wheat germ oil. So, perk those soft, smooth lips with a touch of matte.
My experience with Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick Pink Slip:
If you ask me this shade shouldn’t belong to the 9-5 range. It is more 10 to 3 according to me! Teehee….
The lip stick is matte yet soft textured and glides smoothly. The lipstick has subtle shimmer but it is completely non visible on the lip as can be seen in the swatches. I have applied the lipstick with a Lip liner and it lasted me nearly 6 hours without any issues. And this was when I didn’t do the Tissue paper ritual (apply lipstick, stick a tissue between lips, apply lipstick again).
It survived through my Lunch, Coffee and snack and still an almost faint hint of the colour has stayed on. So double thumbs up!
The only drawback that I see is that the Lippie is matte and as the day progresses the lipstick tends to get heavier on the lips and you get tempted to apply a lip balm so make sure that you exfoliate and apply a balm.
Wt. – 3.6ml
Price: INR 400 .
Packaging: The Lipstick is encased in a rose gold case which I think looks really amazing. The cap locks into the base with a click therefore making it very travel friendly. The size of the bullet is index finger length and that is great because my standard lipstick case can accommodate that size! These days loads of lip products come in different shapes and sizes therefore forcing me to keep changing my lipstick case often. But when I’m wearing this lipstick, I don’t need to plan 1 night in advance! (I know I sound loony but I love my lipsticks I can’t have them rolling around in the bag or makeup pouch without additional protection)
Shade: It is a lovely subtle pink which will go with any outfit you wear- Indian, western, office, casual day wear – you name it. It is subtle enough to be worn to a meeting and great if paired withsmokey eyes!
Formula: The texture of the Lipstick is smooth, matte and easy to apply. It’s not moisturizing so girls with dry lips must exfoliate and apply gloss beforehand.
Pair it with: Lakme 9-5 Pink Blush Lip Liner
