As soon as I was told to write about one of the cosmetic products, I chose to write on one of my favorite products which I lavishly use-Crimson Silk color from the LAKME 9 to 5 weightless matte mousse.
Lakme is one of the very first Indian cosmetic brands of our country. It is that brand that you can never go wrong with.
It released one of its latest range about two years back which is the 9 to 5 collection. It took everyone by surprise because of the variety of products that the range had to offer. The very first products introduced in this range where the classic lip colors which were a bit stiff when applied but after that, the range only got better. I was in awe of this collection and I at least own half a dozen of the products from it till now.
The range’s primary purpose was to make such products available to women which last longer. That is something that you can make out from the name of the range which is 9 to 5.
My very first lipstick bought was from this range itself and I adored it. The packaging of this product makes it all the more attractive and desirable.
Recently they launched their weightless matte mousse collection. One of my favorite lip colors in that collection was CRIMSON SILK and as soon as I opened the package fell in love with the product.

My Experience with Lakme Crimson Silk 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color
So usually everyone including me has the habit of applying lip balm before putting on lipstick. Merely because they give you an oily base if your lipstick is hard and rigid and helps to make your lips look plumper. But this matte mousse combination paints on your lips perfectly hence there is no need to moisten your lips with the balm.
The packaging of the product is done in a tall cylindrical box. The box as well as the body of the product is almost the same color, copper pink. Trust me it gives you a regal and sumptuous look as soon as you hold the product in your hand.
The lip color is a posh red color which goes flawlessly with any sort of outing look that you need it to embellish.
It gives you that fierce and elegant look at the same time. It’s in the matte mousse form and lathering it on even would not make you uncomfortable or conscious because as the name suggests it is weightless and it perfectly paints your lips.
The texture of this product is of that of a fine silken look. It is smooth and feels as weightless as it can be. The mousse texture helps by not letting creases appear throughout the time you are wearing it and the matte look at the same time polishes your lips with finesse.
This color is not the hot red look that everyone nowadays opts for but it rather leans towards those elegant darker looks that you see celebrities so confidently carrying off.This color gives you a break from all the brighter colors or perhaps more precisely bright red color that we certainly do go for time and again.
Overall Performance of Lakme Crimson Silk 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color
I say go for this look when you are going for a fierce yet sensual aura. Adorning this look for a party or for an evening date will make you look edgy. Pair it up with a classic hot black dress and it’ll add that right amount of pop of color that you need.
And for a party look, I say dab into some of the glitters on your lips and it’ll make the look just right.
Would I recommend/ repurchase?
So I’ll say go check out more of these lip colors of this specific weightless range because they surely are something which is easy to wear and fun to carry off.
