Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick Red Chaos : Review and FOTD

Hello Dearies,
I am totally loving Lakme’s new 9 to 5 Lipsticks. I hope most of you have already heard about the Revamped Lakme 9 to 5 lipsticks . Lakme has specifically launched some nice new shades for the working women which I have found to be a good initiative.  These are basically a good choice for Matte lovers and those who love shades which are wearable to the workspace too. Today we’ll review the shade named ‘Red Chaos’

The Outer Looks:

Lakme has surely listened to what women want. We wanted a classy looking lipstick that is long wearing and matte. They have listened and provided us with a classy rose gold glossy packaging which looks very pretty(I simply adore it!!! ). The Lakme 9 to 5 lipsticks come in a twist up packaging and is packed inside a cardboard carton to protect it from scratching and outer damage. I’ve loved the packaging very much and have not been able to convince my heart to carry these in my purse (for the fear of getting scratches and damage the casing: P)

The Inner Beauty:

The Lakme 9 to 5 lipsticks have a very creamy formula which needs no tugging or pulling and is very easy to apply. As the Lakme 9 to 5 lipsticks are matte, it’s best to moisturize your lips and exfoliate it too. I usually use a homemade lip scrub to exfoliate my lips and apply a generous coating of either Vaseline/Borolene.

The shade Red Chaos is very classy warm brownish pink shade with a touch of Peach which looks very pretty on a good range of skin tones. I’ve loved wearing the shade in the day when I don’t want to attract attention to my lips. It really is appropriate for the office.
The color stays for long, but not like what the Brand claims. The shade stays intact for 4-5 hours easily and fades. The color fades greatly after a meal and does become patchy sometimes .It does not feel heavy on the lips. 
Being matte it is a bit dry but the dryness can be handled by applying a coat of your favorite lip balm before application. 

I also want to mention that the name for this lipstick is highly inappropriate as the shade is not a red at all and it’s not at all chaotic shade. It’ a very subtle shade and the name is totally a misfit.
