I have always loved this range since the day they were launched, my favorite shades being Scarlett drill and red chaos. Let me know if you would like to see a review on those too. I own almost the entire range of this collection, as the texture goes on very powdery matte, very me. Many shades may have shimmer in them as well, this one though is the loveliest coral red in matte. Let’s check out the review in detail!!

My Experience with Lakme 9 To 5 Lipstick Magenta Mind
I have to start with the fact that the shade amazed me; this is not magenta but a slightly milky coral red in the pure matte finish. It goes on very smooth on the lips, hiding the pigmentation instantly, hence great for pigmented lips as well. The texture is matte and very dry no doubt, if you wear a lip balm to prep the lips, it would help. But I like to stick to the matte feel.
The color is deeper in person, it can be safely worn during evening and night, and I do not mind wearing reds during the day. The lipstick stays on 4-5 hours which is brilliant, transfers minimal and also doesn’t wear off easily. Though it will make your lips feel cakey and dry and will enhance the lip fine lines. You may top it with a gloss if you find it too drying during the day.
Overall, I love the color and texture and finish, though it is very drying even for my normal lips.
