Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Liners come as sharpen able Rose Gold bodied wooden pencils with color coded tail. The tip of the liners is well secured with a transparent plastic cap. They have introduced 6 shades in the range from Neutrals –Brown-Pinks & Red which are soft, subtle & very easily wearable. All shades suits Indian skintones beautifully.
I am not a big of lip liners. According to me, as a basic thumb rule they have matte & drying texture which doesn’t show any love for my extremely dry & flaky lips. My lips literally crave for hydrating boost with them on. The last one I tried was Colorbar Definer Lip Liner , which was again not my dry lips friendly! BUT these new Lakme lip liners have an amazing texture which is soft & creamy though not overly so that they crumble or break but good enough for a soft, even & seamless glide on lips. And because it’s a well-balanced texture, there is not much product wastage during sharpening. I love the fact that these give a satin matte finish without going all the way drying mattes on lips. And that means that they don’t feel dehydrating on lips and are comfortable to wear. However going down the wear time, I do feel the moisturization urge but not something that of a very uncomfortable kind! A topping with gloss or lip balm takes care of the issue. The formula doesn’t take any keen interest in highlighting flaws either unless you have your lips in really bad state. For well prepped lips they give a pretty comfort wear. The shades are highly pigmented blanketing the lips to full potentials. Pigmented lips are going to love these. These can be used as a complete lip colour in themselves with some pretty hues & expert pigmentation. They set a nice solid base for your lip covers improving the colour pay off & wear time. I get a solid wear of 5-6 hours with them either weared alone or topped with a gloss or lipstick.
Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Liner BEIGE PINK
BEIGE PINK is a beautiful Neutral Pink which can be your best pal for work wear. Lakme 9 to 5 range is designed keeping the office wear in consideration and this shade fits into the bill perfectly. It goes opaque in a single pass on my moderately pigmented lips. The shade is definitely very soft but there’s no compromise in the pigmentation & wear power whatsoever. Beige Pink wears for good 4.5 hours on me before subsiding down. However it wears for little longer topped with a gloss or lipstick.
Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Liner BOARDROOM BROWN
BOARDROOM BROWN is a plain matte warm coffee brown which might not interest most of us unless you are a true brown fan! I love to use this mostly for lining my lips for brown based neutrals or it even looks good weared under coloured neutrals adding a hint of hue to otherwise a bland brown. Boardroom Brown goes opaque with single pass & wears for good 4-5 hours before toning down.
