My Experience with Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Pink Plush Lip and Cheek Color
The packaging is way similar to their one of the most raved 9 to 5 reinvent office range which comes in classy rose gold packing. The lip color tube is medium long and comes with a sponge applicator which is easy to use and picks up just enough product.the lip and cheek color shade name is mentioned at the bottom round of the tube. Overall, I find the packaging quite handy and easy to deal with.
Texture, Shade and Pigmentation:-
The texture of the weightless matte mousse is extremely lightweight and buttery soft in one go! It applies evenly on my normal to dry lips and sets to in velvet-y finish with in a seconds of application.The wand is so cute and picks the right amount of product.It is idea to get precise lips without much effort.
For cheeks ,you just need to get a little amount to get natural flush on to your cheeks. The texture of this lip and cheek color reminds me of Color Bar deep matte lip creams. It feels like amazingly light and it gradually turns matte. The color is gorgeous, a beautiful pink based coral and ideal fair to medium skin tones. The color does not have too much of blue tones , but for deep-medium skin tones,you need a strong makeup base to pull this off. other than it will wash out deeper skin tones.
This is great in pigmentation and provide even and smooth application in few swipes. It ideal for pigmented and covers lip imperfections beautifully.
Although, I find this lip color slightly drying over time. It has stayed on me for about 6+ without any full meals in between. It doesn’t transfer much and fades evenly.I would suggest to wear lip balm underneath since it is not moisturising enough and accentuates dry patches.Overall, I love the color on me and it is quite long wearing and doesn’t leave any cheap looking stain behind. Way to go Lakme!

What I Don’t Like about Lakme Weightless Mousse Pink Plush Lip and Cheek Color
- This particular shade is not going to work for most of the Indian tones, except for our” fairer counterparts”.
- Packaging could have been better
- Since, it is not a moisturizing lip color, then one should need to prep your lips before application.
