Lakme Blush Velvet 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Colour :Hello My Lovelies I have always been a Lakme Girl as I swear by the consistent performance and thoughtful pricing of their products. So, when I heard of the 9 to 5 weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek colour range…I couldn’t wait to try one out. I have been looking for a daywear shade for long…which is why I chose the Blush velvet shade…it’s the lightest pink with brown undertones. It’s been a week since I have been using this shade so let’s check out how it fared.
My Experience with Lakme Blush Velvet 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Colour
This lip and cheek colour comes in a cylindrical fibre based packaging and looks pretty decent with its rose gold lid. The applicator is flexible and the tip is slightly curved which makes it easy for me to glide on the lipstick. The lipstick soon settles down into an “almost matte look” about half a minute after application. I always use lip balm before applying lipstick…in the absence of a moisturised base…this lipstick can make your lips look dry.
The pigmentation is quite impressive.. what I am wearing is just one coat and a few extra touches. If you want a more intense look.. feel free to layer. The shade is light and girly…just the way I wanted it to be.
I am not someone who applies blusher on a daily basis but I did try Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Colour Blush Velvet on my cheeks and it blended in looking completely natural. All you must do is to dab on a small stroke on the apple/ hollow of your cheeks (depending on how your bone structure is) and then blend it in outwards and downwards with three fingers.
The USP of the Lakme 9to5 weightless matte mousse is its light and airy texture. I have chosen a subtle shade as what I wanted to achieve was a light evened out pinkish lip texture which goes very close to the “no makeup look”. Well this didn’t disappoint me. The second biggest advantage is that the lipstick stayed on even after two cups of coffee and a slice of cake which means that once you have applied this lipstick in the morning… you are basically set for the day!!
The downside is that this lipstick has a rather sweet vanilla like fragrance which I personally find overpowering. Plus, this is purely a daywear shade…the colour is too light to be considered for evening occasions.
Would I recommend?
I will opt for a repurchase…the light no makeup feel on my lips is welcome especially in these sultry summer days. Apart from the fact that the lip colour smells strongly of vanilla essence (and I am not really a Vanilla girl), I cannot really think of a drawback. Plus…would love to try the other shades too …I have my eye on Tangerine and Plum Feather.
