Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Color Roseate Motive Review & Swatches


Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Color Roseate Motive


Hi everybody,

While I was strolling in Lifestyle, I happened to notice that Lakme counter had a brigade of new shades in their 9 to 5 lip color range. I tried so many variants before I zeroed on this one. I find it to be quite flattering on me. 😉 So here I present to you- ‘roseate motive’.

My experience with Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Color Roseate Motive:

The packaging is same as with the previous shades of this range- rose gold body and snugly fitting cap. I would describe the packaging as the “luxury in budget” packaging. I mean they bring to us quite good looking and classy packaging at this budget price which is commendable in itself. Secondly, I happen to like flat tipped lipsticks more than the pointed ones so that gives them an added mark from my side.

Coming to the shade, this is a pretty deep red which would look quite flattering on most women. The shade appears to be from some high end brand and not something that costs mere 400 bucks. Yes, it does contain minute shimmer particles but those are not visible unless someone comes as close as 3-4 inches from your face. Refer the hand swatch for better shade matching as the lip swatch is taken from a very less distance and the shimmers appear to be accentuated in that picture while it is not the case in reality. Count me in the shimmer haters community and trust me I would myself not have liked it if they happened to be so prominent. The shade is matte and is richly pigmented. You need just one swipe for complete opaque layer; however you can apply a second coat to deepen the color. I did not used to pick up reds generally because they appear to be quite bold on me but I am in some serious love with reds after this- bold or whatever who cares. 😛

I think this would make up to be a gorgeous lip color for evening/night occasions and would instantly lift up your face.

The staying power is really impressive with this one. It stays intact for 6-7 hours with meals, provided you apply 2 coats and eat a bit cautiously. There is absolutely no offensive smell with this one.

Overall, I am highly impressed with the quality and shade. If you happen to be a red lover, this is like a must buy for you and just in case you are a matte lover too then this is a “sone pe suhaga” situation for you. Go grab it and checkout the new shades as well.
