Lakme 9 To 5 Primer + Matte Lip Color Review eshasaxena February 28, 2018
Lipstick is a staple in most of our makeup bags. When it comes to a statement-making pout, nothing beats a good matte lipstick. Lakme re-invented its 9 to 5 lipsticks range, and now you can buy your favourite shade from this range, but with a better formula! I tried a bunch of these colors, and I have so much to share with you. Here’s my review of the Lakme 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Lip Color. If you’re curious to know how they perform and fare, read on to find out more.
The new and improved Lakme 9 to 5 lipstick is the first lip color with a built-in primer for a long-lasting matte finish. Its primer extends your color’s stay comfortably for up to 12 hours. It ensures smooth application and an intense color payoff. Touch-ups are now a thing of the past. It’s available in 30 work-ready shades so that you can match your look with perfection.
Here’s what Lakme claims to offer with its Primer + Matte Lip Color:
The Lakme 9 To 5 Primer + Matte lipstick comes in a shiny, rose gold metallic finish packaging in a cardboard box. The tube looks very attractive, and it also feels nice to hold. Its cardboard cover contains information like its shade name, price, and manufacturing date. The tube also has the shade name mentioned on a sticker at the bottom. Overall, its packaging is simple, elegant and functional. The cap secures the product well, and you can easily carry it around in your bag without the fear of the tube opening up.
Its full ingredients list is not mentioned anywhere. However, Lakme claims that the key ingredient of this lip color is primer, which ensures that the lipstick provides smooth application and comfortable wear all day long.
I was a big fan of the old Lakme 9 to 5 lipstick range, and when I saw its revamped version with a primer in its formula, I was so keen on trying it. I bought my favorite shades to start off with and here’s my experience with the Lakme 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Lip Color.
This lipstick formula has a smooth and creamy texture that glides easily on the lips without tugging or pulling. Its soft finish does not feel patchy on the lips, and it never highlights dry patches on my otherwise dry lips. It feels light and comfortable to wear, and I would say it’s perfect for daily wear – you can easily wear it to work or college without feeling like you have a heavy product on your lips.
It has a mildly sweet fragrance that fades after some time of application. Even if you’re sensitive to smell, this will not bother you.
I was very impressed with its pigmentation. The color is super saturated, and even a single coat will leave you with a fully opaque finish. Its formula feels high quality and does not leave an annoying stain like some matte lipsticks tend to do. My lips feel soft and moisturized after applying this lipstick, and it never smudges or bleeds! Also, the formula never settles into creases and fine lines, which is the sign of a good lipstick.
This stays on easily for 5-6 hours, and it can decently survive a meal. However, after a heavy meal, it does tend to fade away from the centre of the lips, so a slight touch-up is required, which is not much work as this is so easy to apply. Also, the lip color never looks messy on the lips. It’s easy to remove – a wet wipe will do the trick instantly.
The Lakme 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Lip Color range comes in 30 gorgeous shades. I was very happy to see the variety of pinks, red, mauves, and browns. There’s a lot to choose from with something for everyone. Here’s how some of the shades look and perform.
The shade ‘Maple Map’ is a stunning nude shade which will flatter any skin tone. It’s a warm-toned, peachy nude color with a hint of brown in it, which instantly makes anyone look fresher. It’s a great everyday shade!
This is a beautiful berry shade with pink undertones. The name ‘Berry Base’ is so apt for this color. It suits all skin tones well and is extremely pigmented. This shade is ideal for evening wear.
This is a muted orange color with a brick undertone to it. It’s ideal for warm skin tones and instantly brightens up your face. You can use it during the day when you’re in the mood to add some color to your lips.
Are you a chocoholic? This is one of the most beautiful chocolate shades from this range. Its pigmentation is incredible! It suits fair to medium skin tones well.
This is one of my favorite shades. It’s a bright brick red that suits Indian skin tones well. It never looks over the top and can be pulled off easily even during the day.
If you’re a fan of pinks, you will love ‘Rosy Mind’. It’s the prettiest blend of pink, red, and coral and will suit almost every skin tone. It looks very fresh and summery. Also, it complements all looks well.
‘Pink Perfect’, like its name suggests, is a pure pink shade with some shimmer particles in it. However, the shimmer is not very visible. It’s a great shade for spring or summer, and it complements medium to fair skin tones so well.
This shade is a beautiful baby pink color, and it gives your lips a natural flush of pink. It’s a perfect shade for teenagers and college-goers, besides working women.
‘Rosy Sunday’ is a gorgeous warm-tone dusty rose color with subtle earthy hints to it. This is a universally flattering shade and will suit every skin tone well.
‘Red Rebel’ is a bright red with orange undertones. It’s a highly pigmented shade, and a single swipe is all you need for a fully opaque finish. This suits all skin tones.
This one’s a neonish, hot orange shade and is perfect for neon lovers. It suits medium to fair skin tones and is a great color for summer or spring.
Some of the other shades from this range include:
How To Use This Product
Here’s how you can make the best of this lip color and achieve lips that are on-fleek!
Step 1: Dot your lips with a hydrating lip balm and smooth them out.
Step 2: For a more precise application, you can use a lip liner that matches your lips.
Step 3: Apply the lipstick, starting at the centre of the upper lip and moving outward towards the corners.
Step 4: Blot your lips.
Will I Recommend This Product?
Yes, I definitely recommend this product to anyone who loves a good, long-lasting matte finish formula. Lakme has done a great job of improving the old formula, and the primer in it does the trick of extending its staying power and making my lips appear smoother. You should definitely try the shades ‘Brownie Point’, ‘Espresso Shot’, ‘Cherry Chic’ and ‘Red Letter’ as these are absolutely stunning and will suit any complexion or skin tone. These lipsticks are great for daily wear.
A bold matte lipstick works wonders on a face with minimal makeup. Also, unlike glossy lipsticks, a proper application of its formula usually requires a little finesse. That was my review of the Lakme 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Lip Color. Have you ever tried any of the shades from this new range? What were your thoughts? Let me know in the comments section below.
