We all get excited while talking about cosmetic products, especially lipsticks, right? As far as I’m concerned, I love everything about lipsticks, talking, reading and purchasing fills me with a thrill even today :). Writing about a lipstick always feels interesting and today I’m with another lipstick’s review. I bought it last year and have been wearing it several times especially at parties and festivals. It’s another favourite lipstick from Lakme Nine-to-five Day Perfect lip colours range.
What company says…

This range of Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Color contains vitamin E and wheat germ oil
In the mirror of my own experience
Lakme 9 to 5 lipstick comes in sleek rose gold packaging which not only looks attractive but is also sturdy and travel-friendly.
The shade Red Coat is a beautiful red, a face-brightening red which I love. It is slightly similar to the Mac Ruby Woo, not a dupe completely but quite similar. The shade goes on to become very very matte and brightens your face instantly.
The texture of the lipstick is creamy and smooth. It’s a matte lipstick but It glides on the lips nicely. It is so pigmented but needs multiple swipes to get the actual bright colour. A single swipe gives a semi-sheer coverage and I often apply it just one swipe on my lips because the shade is so bold. One light handed swipe gives my lips a soft but bright effect.
Coming to the finish, it gives slightly glossy finish while applying but turns matte within a few minutes. If you have dry lips and don’t like super matte lipsticks it will be a good choice for you. You only have to prepare your lips by applying a lip balm before the application.
I would love to apply this lipstick with my favourite black winged liner and mascara, never used eyeshadow or any other eye makeup. The colour is very bright so will be great for parties and functions especially for evening. I always use a red lipliner with it.
Now will talk about the staying power, it lasts for about 4 hours without eating or drinking. So I’m a bit disappointed with the duration performance because I expected some more hours like my other matte formula lipsticks.

I love this lipstick, the shade is beautiful and will suit Indian skin tones. The formula is lightweight with smooth and creamy texture. It never makes my lips dry and gives a lovely matte finish. I will recommend it to those who are looking for a matte red shade with creamy and smooth formula lipstick at a reasonable.
