Hello Dearies,Well most of you have already heard about Lakme 9 to 5 lipsticksbut still some may be unaware that Lakme has revamped their 9 to 5 range and has specifically launched some nice new shades for the working women. Though having used their Absolute range lipsticks I was quite apprehensive to pick these up but at the end I picked up three shades. Today we’ll review the shade named ‘Red Coat‘.
What Lakme Claims about Lakme 9 to 5 Lipsticks?
‘Lakme Nine to Five brings you a range of 15 shades that sit on your lips all day long. Enriched with Vitamin E; it conditions your lips & softens them with wheat germ oil. So, perk those soft, smooth lips with a touch of matte.’
Price and Quantity:
Lakme 9 to 5 lipsticks retail at 400Rsfor 3.6ml of product
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. The Lakme 9 to 5 lipstickpackaging style has remained somewhat same. 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 Coat is very classy warm red which looks very pretty on all skin tones. It is one of the few favorite shades and I’ve loved wearing the shade. It really is appropriate for the season and I’ll be doing a tutorial soon too with this Red lipstick.
The color stays for long, but not like what the Brand claims. The shade stays intact for 4-5 hours easily and fades into a deep stain. The color survives a meal and 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.

There are many N*de shades form this range as well as office appropriate shades like muted pinks, and berry shades. These are matte and will stay for long so you won’t need to reapply now and then.
