The packaging of this range is pretty similar to the previous Lakme 9 to 5 Range. It comes in a box packaging with the name of the range written over it. The case is very beautiful with a rose gold metallic sheen to it. The packaging looks luxurious and it sits pretty on my makeup vanity. Love <3

Texture And Pigmentation:

The texture of the lipstick is pretty similar to the previous range. The only difference according to me is these lipsticks feel a bit waxier compared to the previous range as these have primer in them. They last really long and are really highly pigmented. One swipe is enough to cover pigmented lips.

Staying Power:

The shade Saffron Gossip stays on the lips for 5-6 hours with light meals in between.


Saffron gossip is a yellow toned bright shade of orange. It looks a little neonish in artificial light. Great face brightening shade for fair to medium skin tone.

What I feel about the lipstick:

The Lakme 9to5 shade Saffron Orange is a good choice for fair skin tone ladies with a cooler undertone but definitely not a very good choice for the other family like me. It kind of washes me out and I don’t look good after wearing it. It is not an everyday colour as it has a neonish hint to it and is really stark when compared to the other subtle oranges available in the market. The pigmentation, texture and staying power is really a pro which makes it a decent buy if you love oranges. For me, I will skip it: 🙁

  • Suitable for fair to medium skin tone
  • Face brightener shade
  • Orange is the flavour of the season
  • Great for summers
  • Decent pricing
  • Great pigmentation
  • Stays for long
  • Comfortable matte finish

Why do I dislike the lipstick:

Recommendation: If you are fair to medium skin tone and love stark oranges, then this can be your baby. For me, I prefer to skip it!
