Hi lovely ladies
Today, I’m reviewing a daily wear shade from Lakme’s Nine to Five range – Toffee Nexus. Currently, it’s one of my favorite shades as I love wearing it on a daily basis!
The packaging, I believe, has changed but it is more eye catching and beautiful now. Lakme Nine-to-five Day Perfect lip colors come in a sleek pink metallic packaging which is so sturdy and looks pretty. In terms of appearance it’s my favorite packaging from Lakme. The bullet has a flat tip instead of the regular pointed ones. It doesn’t bother me but I think a bit pointed tip is easier to work when it comes to the corners of the lips.
The shade Toffee Nexus is a lovely dusty peachy-coral shade. On my lips, it looks like a nude coral and gives a soft effect to the face without washing me out. It’ll not be a perfect shade for for very dusky skin but for fair/medium/wheatish skin. To get a beautiful daily wear look, just pair this up by applying black kohl in your eyes and you’ll be ready to go out!
The lipstick has an impressive creamy texture. It is soft and smooth. It gives the right color in 1-2 swipes and opaque coverage to cover up pigmented lips. The color pay off is great and the texture isn’t dry or stiff like many other long stay lipsticks. I have noticed that it feels creamy on application but settles into a soft satiny matte finish after some time. After that it stays on for a long time and doesn’t vanish off the lips despite being a fairly soft shade.
It has a fantastic staying power for 6 to 7 hours, although it will come off if you eat, but not if you drink. You may need some moisture after 3-4 hours if you have dry lips. But it doesn’t get patchy on unflattering on the lips.
Overall, I think its a great long wear lipstick – creamy, smooth and very light weight. Really love the beautiful packaging. The cost is quite reasonable. It has a very light smell which doesn’t bother at all.
