New Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek color are soft matte lip creams 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. Blush Velvet on lips is the prettiest natural looking rose pink shade that will suit fair to medium skin complexions. On my cheeks, it looks warm pink once blended and compliments itself on my lips.
Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Color has air whipped mouse 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. Once settled it gives lovely matte suede finish that does not feather or bleed.
I get complete opacity in two swipes. Blush velvet 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 blush velvet 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. Blush velvet warms up cheeks with lovely warm pink stain.
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 for natural looking tint on cheeks. It is an ideal office / 9 to 5 product given to its long wear time and versatility.
Blush Velvet is one of the best shade in collection for medium tone Indian skin complexions. It looks lovely earth toned rosy 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 Blush velvet works exceptionally good both as matte lip cream and cheek color on my medium NC 42 skin complexion.
