My Views On Lakme 9 to 5 Matte Lipcolor Coffee Command

As much as I love Red lipsticks I love neutral color lipsticks too as they're a perfect fit for everyday and office!


The Lakme 9 to 5 Matte Lipsticks come in a beautiful rose gold metallic casing with a plastic bullet cover\holder.
The carton also comes in a rose gold packaging and its pretty awesome.
The lipstick is bit on the heavier side due to the metallic casing but is compact enough to carry around. The casing is super protective and your lippy won't break or dent easily even when dropped on floor!
The lipstick bullet has a slanting tip which is very convenient to apply directly on lips even without a brush or a liner beneath.

Shade Description

Lakme 9 to 5 Matte Lipcolor Coffee Command is a beautiful n*de lip shade with an excellent matte finish. It's kinda a mix of peach & brown shades.

The lipstick would suit most skintones and it flatters fair skintones more than others. It's a perfect neutral shade for me!

Texture & Coverage

The Lakme 9 to 5 Matte Lipcolor as the name says is a matte finish lipstick range. The lipsticks have a powder matte finish. They have an odd smell which I HATE!
Coffee command is a beautiful n*de shade which spreads well and gives good coverage with just one coat. 2-3 coats would give you a nice opaque coverage.
Being a matte lipstick this lippy has amazingly light texture and doesn't feel heavy on lips :)

The lisptick has an ultra lightweight formula and with 2 coats you're all set!
Once set it doesn't transfer easily and stays in place for 4-5 hours without eating.
It can withstand light snacking but you will need to touch-up a little in the middle of your lips :P
One big problem is as it's a matte lisptick you can't just use it to touch up easily. You will need a clean and plump lip to coat it up!
