Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Color Red Chaos Swatches and Review
I love wearing matte lipsticks but it always made my lips dry. However 9 to 5 ranges from lakme provide matte lipsticks which glide on easily and have great pigmentation. They give perfect matte finish to lips which I love. So today I am going to review a shade red chaos from this range.
What lakme says about the range?
Lakme 9 to 5 the office stylist range consist of a wide collection for a daily office wear with subtle shades that require no touch-ups through the day, providing an impeccably styled look and allowing a hassle-free transition from the desk to the office party.
Price: Rs. 400 for 3gm
It comes in a rosy metallic golden color packaging. It is very girly and pretty. Its cap fits very tightly which makes it travel friendly.
My experience with red chaos from lakme 9 to 5
Red chaos is a pretty shade; I don’t know why it is called red chaos as it comes out very peachy pink on my lips. I love the color and as it does not have shimmers and gives matte finish so I will highly recommend it to office and college going girls.
The texture of this lippy is very smooth, it glides on lips very easily but it does make my lips dry as there texture is not very creamy. I prefer using lip balm before applying this lip shade and would prefer girls who are having dry as well as chapped lips to scrub their lips before applying this lip color otherwise more dryness will be visible.
The pigmentation is awesome but the problem comes with the staying power. Lakme claims that this lip color stays on lips from 9 to 5 but it stays on my lips for only about 3 to 4 hours after that touch-up is required as usual. When it starts fading it leaves lips behind with uneven tint which does not look good. It does not transfer to the rims of glasses while drinking and also does not bleed. It has a slight fragrance in it which is not very over powering.
My likes and dislikes:
- Shade is very pretty.
- Texture is creamy and glides on lips smoothly.
- Pigmentation is awesome.
- Does not transfer easily.
- Gives matte finish.
- Comes in classy rose gold packaging.
- 9 to 5 staying power claims is not true. I hate when companies make these falls claim to sell their product.
- Has a fragrance in it which I don’t like because I prefer my lip shades without any smell.
- When start fading leaves an uneven tint behind.
