I must admit I am a huge fan of bright lipsticks but right now I live in Chennai where the society is still a bit conservative ( compared to Mumbai) and give you shocking looks when you wear a Red or fuschia. Orange? No baba no! No offence, I am sure this will change soon with people like me around. Ever since I landed in Chennai, I have been buying only neautral lipsticks. So when Lakme came out with the Office Stylist range, I picked up two n*de lipsticks. I have already reviewed Red Chaos here. I am here with Coffee Command today.
Price: Rs. 400
Packaging: Cute and girly, light pink colored metallic packaging.
Coffee Command is a peachy brown, a perfect n*ude for fair-medium skintones. The texture is satin, not exactly matte, but creamy matte. It glides on smoothly and does not settle into lines or cracks.
Both Red Chaos and Coffee Command are perfect for office wear and apt for those who do not like much color on the lips. Coffee Command would be my first pick when I go for a smokey look. It compliments Indian skin very well and gives just a light wash of color and is more of an MLBB on my NC40 skintone.
The tube does not melt inside or break easily. Application is easy and the lipstick stays put for a good 3-4 hours.
I love this range for the smooth texture and amazing staying power. The huge array of shades are highly impressive and everyone has got something to choose.
It looks slightly glossy in the above swatch but that settles down in few seconds and looks neat matte as shown below.
The shade reminds me of MAC Mocha, maybe a tad deeper.
Final Words: Coffee Command would be a perfect companion for working women. Do not miss if you love wearing n*ude lipsticks.
Okay I know I looks sick with no makeup, not even kajal but just wanted to show how the shade looks on me.
