Hope you all are fine
Today, I will be sharing a latest entrant in my lipstick stash which is from the renowned brand of Lakme. The shade I got is from the Lakme 9 to 5 range of Lip Color and has the name “Blush Work”. I was keen on purchasing a pink color from this range but unfortunately it was out of stock. Well, the sales girl at the counter convinced me to try some other shades and when she swatched this one, it took no time for me to decide that I surely need to buy this one!
Price: INR 400 for 3.6 ml.
Shelf Life: 24 months.
My experience with Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Color Blush Work:
Color: The lipstick is a lovely coral shade with gold shimmers in it. The shades gradients towards being more of a peachy coral and not actually a pink shade. Initially, I was little doubtful about picking this shade because it had golden shimmers, but then when I applied it on my lips I loved how it looked on me!
Finish: This lipstick has a matte finish but it does not look drying at all! I consider is to be a moisture matte shade. It is quite moisturizing on the lips while giving a decent matte look.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is sheer to medium but you can easily build up the color by layering it. Well, in case of layering the application might look patchy and your lips may end up looking a little cakey. So better to use only a single layer
Staying power: The staying power of this lip shade is decent enough and lasts for 5 hours with light snacks and drinks. Although it claims to stay from 9 to 5, it doesn’t stay for that long. With full meals don’t expect it to stay for long. You need to re-apply it, after removing, for an even application.
One of the cons I have for this lip shades is that it settles in fine lines of the lips. But the shade is so pretty that I can ignore the cons easily!
