My experience with Lakme 9to5 Crease-Less Lipstick in Crimson Call:
Packaging- The packaging is exactly same as the nine to five matte range. This lipstick comes in a metallic peach case with an outer paper box. The cap clicks tightly at place making it travel friendly.
Shade- Crimson Call is a pink-red shade with hint of peach tone. Mainly it is more of pink. But the color is nevertheless gorgeous and brightens up my face immediately. But it has also a big downside. OMG!! It has so much golden shimmers! I donâ€™t like lipsticks with shimmers but the color is so adorable that I couldnâ€™t resist myself from buying this. Overall it is a flattering shade and will suit almost skin tone. But I am not sure about very dark skin tone.
Texture, finish and pigmentation– The texture is very soft and creamy. It glides on the lips very easily without any tugging. It doesnâ€™t bleed or settles into fine lines but one need to apply a balm lightly to avoid any dryness. Though this is creaseless, it settles into a soft matte finish after some time without over drying the lips. But those shimmers are noticeable even after application.
This lipstick has a good pigmentation. One swipe is enough for good color pay off. But much pigmented lips may need an extra swipe to cover darkness of lips. I have light pigmentation and I need only one swipe to hide them.
Staying power– this lipstick stays on my lips around 5 hours and can survive a snack or light meal. It starts to fade from the inner edge of the lips and after fading it leaves a soft peachy pink stain. But those shimmers!!! Oh my god. They donâ€™t get vanished obviously.
And they tend to travel here and there around the lip which is a big con!

What I donâ€™t like about Lakme 9to5 Crease-Less Lipstick in Crimson Call:
- â€¢ Those shimmers! ( Why they add shimmers to such gorgeous shades! Can you hear us Lakmee? )
- â€¢ Shimmers tend to travel around the lips after it starts to fade
- â€¢ Not transfer proof
Final verdict– This is a flattering shade and will suit most of the skin tones. Texture is also very good. The shade is also gorgeous and perks up face instantly. But those shimmers! If you have no problem with the shimmers you may absolutely try this. But those who hate shimmers, decision is yours!
