Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color Plum Feather Review
Brand Claims:Say ‘No’ to touch ups with this perfect for office wear, Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Matte Lip and Cheek Color. Lakme’s first lip and cheek color comes in a mousse texture that’s weightless, giving a powdery matte finish to lips and a soft blush to your cheeks. Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Matte Lip and Cheer Color is ideal for daily office wear adding charm and lasting long. Its dual benefit makes it a high functional product for the busy and on the go working woman. Its Looks and feels weightless because of the light weight formula. Since it’s a mouse texture, it absorbs well giving an intense color that long-lasting. The applicator brish glides on seamlessly making is east to apply and giving a smooth and even finish. There are 10 vibrant shades designed especially for both lips and cheeks.
Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek color is velvety matte lip cream housed in flesh toned tubes with rose gold lids. Packaging is typical of lip gloss and wand has petal shaped sponge applicator. Lakme has added these weightless mousse creams as an extension to its already existing 9 to 5 office range. So I can relate to the basic theme behind rose gold accents but I would have loved these tubes more with some kind of color coding and discrete labelling indicating the shade of color inside.
I picked up two shades from the 10 gorgeous colors – Blush velvet and Plum Feather. Plum Feather on lips is the gorgeous warm red pink shade that will suit almost all complexions. As cheek color it looks pretty daunting but adds lovely flush of pink color on my cheeks once blended. I find it as great shade for dusky beauties especially for being warm enough to impart good dose of color on cheeks. Very fair girls should go light handed while using this as blush.
Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Color has air whipped, mousse like texture which spreads effortlessly on lips. Formula has praline, confectionary scent which disappears within seconds of application. To begin with formulas soft lip cream which sets into powdery matte finish within few minutes of application. It feels weightless on lips and does not dry out my lips to the level of discomfort. But if you have dry flaky lips, I suggest overnight hydration with lip balm and morning exfoliation prior to application as being matte it can enhance dryness & tend to cling to dry patches. Once settled it gives lovely matte suede finish that does not feather or bleed.
I get complete opacity in two swipes. Plum Feather will show up true to its color even on pigmented lips. However , I have noticed that lip cream tends to settle down in fine lip lines during the course of wear and can accentuate the appearance of same. This can look unsightly on mature women with prominent lip lines. Formula does not flake or peel off during wear. It does transfer on cups and cutlery but does so minimally. Lip color lasts on my lips for about 6 hours with some fading and wears uniform without looking patchy et all. I need a touch up post full meal for intense color and uniform finish.
As cheek color, I loved the way Plum Feather looks on my medium complexion. It blush up my cheeks with touch of health and looks very natural given to the matte finish. Formula blends seamlessly although I will suggest to do so swiftly as it set up really fast . Best way is to do one cheek at a time – Dot and blend !! or else apply cheek color on fingers and then dot on cheeks with blending. It does not dry my skin or accentuate dry patches. Plum Feather warms up cheeks with lovely warm reddish pink stain which I love to pair with glossy pink stains on lips.Avoid applying it directly with applicator as it can look streaky even on blending. In FOTD pictures, I am wearing Plum Feather both on my lips and cheeks.I recently wore this lipstick in my January Beauty Favorites video.
VANILLA RATINGS 8.5/10
Lakme 9 to 5 weightless mousse lip and cheek colors are new generation soft matte lip creams that feels feather light on lips for everyday wear. It is a multi purpose product that gives long-lasting powdery matte finish on lips and works equally good as blush. It is an ideal office / 9 to 5 product given to its long wear time and versatility.
Plum Feather is one of the best shade in collection for medium tone Indian skin complexions. Dusky beauties can consider using this shade for office wear. It looks quite festive when topped with same toned lip gloss. It looks lovely reddish pink on lips whereas add warm pink color to my cheeks. However packaging could have been more improvised. As the sticker which is only indicator of the name of lip shade on base of product is flimsy and can get removed easily. Formula being powdery matte can accentuate fine lines or skin tags on dry lips.
I am not sure about other shades in collection but both Blush Velvet &Plum Feather works exceptionally good both as matte lip cream and cheek color on my medium NC 42 skin complexion.
