Today in this post 12 Lakme 9 to 5 Matte Lipsticks Swatches , I am going to share swatches of some of my favorite Indian drugstore Matte Lipsticks from the house of Lakme. While couple of them are already on blog-Reviewed & Swatched, rest of them are in pipeline to be reviewed individually with FOTD’s. Almost all the shades I have swatched today are the part of Lakme 9 to 5 Matte lipsticks -permanent collection.
I have mixed neutrals,peaches,pinks,rose wine and red from this collection. So this post is just a SWATCH post!! I hope you will find this post helpful in picking up right shades for yourself this spring and summer.

12 Lakme 9 to 5 Matte Lipsticks Swatches
First set of 4 lipsticks I have watched are the neutral shades in the collection. Although Coffee Command and Oak table look very similar in swatches but on my lips , Coffee command look tad peach’ish over Oak Table. these are great picks for office girls and nude lip lovers. However , Peony goal has gold shimmer which becomes prominent once the lipstick fades.
Among the next set of lipsticks I swatched, I loved cherry chic the most. It somehow reminds me of Lakme Absolute Classic Rose Matte Lipstick although it is towards the brown end of the same spectrum. Mauve Paced can wash out deeper skin complexions but a lovely rose pink shade to contrast against smokey eyes for medium skin complexions.Pink Bureau is another great pick for everyday wear as well as for office wear.
I have already reviewed Rose Management and Red Coat on Blog. Fuchsia Friday is pretty pink which I am eyeing to wear this spring. Saffron gossip is bit loud/ bright orange for my taste. I usually love to sport this kind of orange with bold kohl’ed eyes. I have yet to work out a FOTD for Saffron Gossip.
There are plenty of options for Neutral Lip Lovers but somehow I am not a huge fan of shimmer in matte neutral lipsticks. Formula is creamy matte and will be kind on dry lips. Red Coat,Cherry Chic,Wine Play and Rose management are great picks for Olive/Indian skin complexions. While Tea break,Coffee Command,Mauve Faced are gorgeous neutrals but can look pale even on medium skin tones if not paired with right eye makeup.
