My Opinion on Lakme 9 to 5 Matte Lipstick

I am a lipstick junkie and how. I have multiple colors from the same brand range. The whole look is sleek and classy. The outer box contains all product details. For instance all shades from the L'Oreal Tint Caresse, Maybelline Lip Gradation. No, when something is good I like to stock it up. I got these 9 to 5 lipsticks in two nude shades and two pink shades.

The packaging of these lipsticks is beautiful in metallic rose gold color. The body is actually plastic and not metal. The lipsticks have a gold bullet and the cap shuts with a click lock. The shade name is mentioned at the base. The body is not color coded though, since I have multiple shades its difficult to pick the right color.

The lipstick is matte but very comfortable. These are creamy and smooth, yet set into matte finish. Non drying moisturizing formula. The pigmentation is beautiful, pigmented lips might need multi layer application. The color stays on for long as well. The lips don’t feel moisturized all day, but not dry either. The lip colors leave tint behind which can be removed with oil/makeup remover.

The texture is soft, smooth and creamy. The powdery texture is pure love. Right from the beginning of the application these apply powder matte but hardly drying. After 3 hours or so, these get mildly dry. When I apply these on dry lips, the lines on the lips get accentuated. They hardly transfer, but are not transfer proof.


Sorbet Tuesday – a mild coral pink shade is perfect to brighten up the daily look. The color is suitable for fair to medium skintone. It might not show up very well on pigmented lips. Fine gold shimmer infused matte finish. This color is slightly patchy.
Coral Incentive- darker than Sorbet Tuesday is another fresh coral color.
Toffee Nexus- a light nude color for the perfect My Lips But Better shade. This shade is apt for the smokey eye looks.
Scarlet Drill - a muted Earthy Red shade I am obsessed with. Suitable for all skintones, specially deep skintones.
