My Views On Lakme 9 to 5 Matte Lipcolor Red Coat MR1

Although I prefer neutral lip shades for everyday I always love red lipsticks because they can instantly lift up not only your face but also your mood😉 Red lipsticks are just super se*y anytime!!

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. 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 Red Coat is a beautiful bright red shade with perfectly matte finish. It's a blue based red which is a red carpet kinda lipstick! The lipstick would suit all skintones as it's the perfect red💋💓

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 fragrance more like a chemical one which I HATE! Red Coat is a beautiful red shade which applies, 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 one 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. As it's powder matte lipstick and not liquid matte you can easily touch-up too when required without removing it completely!
