Hie everyone! Today I am reviewing my favorite lipsticks from Lakme which are in shade Red Chaos and Cherry Chic from their 9 to 5 range.

What Lakme claims: Lakmé Nine to Five brings you a range of 15 shades that sit on your lips all day long. Enriched with Vitamin E; it conditions your lips & softens them with wheat germ oil. So, perk those soft, smooth lips with a touch of matte.

My Review:

Packaging: I love the rose gold packaging it comes in. Unfortunately, the color isn't displayed on it which makes to difficult to spot. It is travel friendly as it claims as the lid fits tightly onto the lipstick.

Color: I got 2 shades in this range. I was so obsessed with this range that I had to get another one! These shades have good pigmentation. One swipe is enough to cover pigmented lips and give even coverage.

Of the shade that I got, Red Chaos is a Peachy Pink shade which is very understated and apt for office wear. This shade would suit a lot of women and on a lot of occasions. This shade in particular was difficult to find as it was always out of stock. Luckily, the 3rd time round I got it.

Cherry Chic is a Reddish Orange shade with a little shimmery finish but nothing bothersome. It is a little bright and bold. If you think orange is too bold for you, this color is perfect for you to start.

Texture: The texture of the lipstick is smooth and moisturizing. It is the smoothest lipstick texture I have ever come across. This was another reason why I bought another one! It gives a matte finish and is transfer-proof.

Staying Power: It definitely doesn't last from 9 to 5!!! It lasts for 4-5 hours after which it feathers a bit. It won't survive heavy meals. I would recommend prepping your lips first as it can accentuate chapped lips. In dry and cold weather, this does feel a little drying so apply a lip-balm underneath.
