My experience with Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Liner Pink Blush :

The lip pencil is soft textured and glides effortlessly. It gives a nice matte effect with glossy shine. If you look closely in the swatches you will notice that the Liner has tiny silverish glitter. But it gives a juicy effect and the shimmer doesn’t show. I used the Lip liner alone and it lasted me nearly 4 hours without any issues. Definitely survives food. I ate a full meal and bit into apples during the test and it was still there on a fair bit of the lip so good job Lakme!

The only drawback that I see is that the Liner is matte and so it accentuates all the groves and dry areas of the lip. (As you can see in my swatch below) so make sure that you exfoliate completely to avoid the product settling between lines

Packaging: The Lip pencil is wooden with a transparent plastic cap allowing you to see the color through the cap. The bottom of the pencil has the exact same shade as the pencil making it convenient to store and identify. I had to struggle to read the name on the pencil as it is written in gold on a beige background (and it doesn’t help that I’m quite blind too…).

Shade: On initial application it gives off a mauvish hint but later settles to a lovely pink.

Formula: The texture of the lip pencil is smooth and creamy. Pigmentation of the pencil is good and the finish matte

Pair it with: Lakme 9-5 Pink Slip

  1. The shade is lovelyyyy :inlove: Really wish these were retractable. Me no like sharpening creamy pencils 😛 Nicely reviewed dear 🙂

    • I agree Nafisa, that’s my grouse too! But somehow I like the feel of sharpened pencils, silly as it may sound, it reminds me of school and how I used to prepare for the next day. Sharpening my lip pencil for the next day gives me a similar feeling!

        • Anamika, I would give it 7/10 on pigmentation coverage. The reason isn’t that it can’t cover the pigmentation but that it will require a big qty of the product to cover severe pigmentation but that will make the lips v dry. It has reasonable coverage but those that require heavy coverage need a concealor and then this product.

  2. Thanks vipra and mayuree. Its a colour that will look good on everyone I think. Even Nivanya if she deviates from red for a while to try pink! 😉
