Lakme has come up with new stunning shades of the Nine To Five Lipsticks in cute girly pink packaging. I picked up 2 shades and one of them is Red Chaos. Well, when I swatched all the shades, I found this one to be perfect for daily wear. But I really wonder why Lakme has named it Red Chaos when there is not even a hint of red in it. But then what are beauty bloggers for?
Packaging: Unlike the earlier Nine To Five lippies that are packed in a dull grey colored tube, this one looks classy yet girly. It is no flimsy but locating the shade is difficult if you have many.
It is a peachy pink lip color which looks more pink, an everyday pink on my lips. It is highly pigmented and covers my lip darkness completely. It has a soft matte finish and glides very smoothly. My lips have gone extremely dry now but this one never dried them out. The texture is definitely smooth and soft and much better than the earlier nine to five range. It manages to stay put for 3-4 hours on my lips as I tend to hog a lot these days (C’mon, forgive a preggie) and needs reaplication later. But I would like to mention that the staying power is awesome in spite of it not being a complete matte dry lipstick.
Final Words: This has become my absolute favorite daily wear lip color. I can blindly wear it even to the vegetable market. It looks so natural on my wheatish skin tone and am sure duskier beauties would also rock it.This range is a blessing for those looking for well pigmented smooth lipsticks that stay long.
This is how it looks on my NC42 skintone. Have you tried any of these? What would you rate them?
