Packaging: Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Matte Lip and Cheek Color come in the sleek blush pink tube with a rose gold cap. The shade name is mentioned at the bottom of the tube.The problem with the packaging is that it is not color coded. You cannot choose the color by looking at the tube.

Applicator: The applicator brush is delightful. It’s a leaf shaped sponge applicator which is the perfectly sized and shaped for the application. It reaches to the innermost corners with ease and carries enough product for one application.

Texture and Pigmentation

The texture of Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Matte Lip and Cheek Color is lightweight and mousse-like and there is no heavy feeling after wearing the lipstick as much as so that you barely feel it on lips. It isn’t transfer-proof, it will not bleed but sticks to cups and spoons while eating. I have very dry lips and I find these slightly drying. Whenever I have dry flaky lips then it tends to stick on it as well. So I suggest exfoliating lips and moisturize them well before application.

Pigmentation of the colors I have is intense. Just one swipe gives even and full coverage as lipstick. When it is used on cheeks, just a tiny dab is required. The lighter shades fade slightly in the center after eating.

Shades: Burgundy Lush, Blush Velvet, Pink Plush

From Left to Right : Burgundy Lush, Blush Velvet, Pink Plush

Burgundy Lush: This is deep warm toned red. It is very sophisticated brick red shade. This is my most loved color out of three shades I have. As the color is very deep it takes very tiny amount when applied on the cheeks. It needs to be blended quickly as it sets in a matter of seconds.

Blush Velvet: It is a dusty rose color with a slight purple hint. This shade can easily be worn in summers and day time. Looks very pretty as a day to day shade or when clubbed with a smokey eye. It makes a very beautiful blush color as well.

Pink Plush: This a bright pink color with warm undertone. I am not very fond of this shade. But this makes a beautiful cheek stain.
