Experience- This Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick comes in a rose gold packaging which looks really classy with brans name and details embossed on it. I am a fan of their packaging, I like it even more than any other Lakme lipstick packaging.
Name of the shade is there on the bottom of the tube. Overall, It scores full points when it comes to packaging.
Their bullet is not pointed like regular lipsticks but is slanted and has a flat top. These days, I am liking flat top bullets a lot.

This color beige post is a pale peachy color that has shimmers which is quite obvious or I should say, the shimmers are little gritty. I will call it as a beigey color with peachy undertones. Now, when we say beige, you can imagine this will be a color that can wash you out especially if you are on the dusky side.

If you will see the arm swatch, you will notice that it looks a bit more peachy but on the lips it appears a lot lighter.
And also, the bullet looks a lot warmer and dark which isn’t the case as I mentioned earlier, so refer to the swatches instead of the bullet. If I look at the bullet, it looks a great peachy/ apricot kind of color that flatters on most of our Indian skin tones but this isn’t the reality.
In spite of silver shimmers in it, it has a matte formula. It will glide smoothly on the lips and will not make the lips dry but then it becomes really important to exfoliate/scrub your lips properly else flakiness can be quite evident.
Pigmentation is average for this shade but others are pigmented.
Staying power is okay as it stayed on my lips for 4 hours and it was there till I had to retouch it!

Honestly, it’s a color that I would have never bought as I am more into warmer and brighter colours.
I may not be impressed with this color and it’s shimmery texture but nonetheless, I will try other colors like Pink Bureau or Scarlet drill or even red chaos which suits my taste.

Moving on the pros and cons of Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick beige post

Pros
  • Availblility
  • Affordable
  • Classy packaging that looks really beautiful
  • Matte hydrating formula
  • Keeps lips soft
  • Staying power is decent 4 hours until you need to touch up.
  • Glides really smoothly on the lips
Cons
  • You need to exfoliate lips properly
  • Shimmers, which isn’t too fine
  • This color will wash out duskier skin tones
  • Average pigmentation 
Rating- 3 out of 5 (rating is for the color beige post else this range it good enough to get a 4 on 5) 

Take- Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick range has mostly matte colors that are hydrating and keeps the lips soft with a decent staying power. This color beige post is more on the lighter side that will wash out certain skin tones, due to which I will not recommend it.
But the range is promising and has lot of other great everday or office wear shades to choose from which I am definitely trying soon!

      Shimmer is something which most of us dislike particularly when they are chunky and not finely milled.
