Lakme 9 to 5 Matte Lip Colour in Oak Table: Review and Swatches

This is my first buy from the Lakme 9 to 5 range and let me admit the packaging was the first reason why I wanted to own it,I have many other reasons now though. The range as it says is for the office-goers and the shades and texture of the lipstick is made keeping that in mind. I'm so happy Lakme has come up with a lippy that not boring and maroon..something I don't feel overwhelmed taking out in a ladies room.
Company Claims:
Lakme Nine to Five brings you a range of 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.

How to Apply

  • Step 1: Stretch the lips and start at the center, putting on the lipstick to the corners.
  • Step 2: Blot the lipstick with a tissue. Make sure the lipstick has not smudged over the line of your lips

My love for peachy lipsticks has landed me here. Oak Table is a peachy brown nude shade with lots of fine milled gold shimmer. Though the camera hasn't been able to capture,the shimmer is very obvious yet beautiful. It should actually not belong to the office stylist range. Its a gorgeous night time lippy. Infact it would have been my HG mlbb shade if it was devoid of shimmers.

Price/Quantity: INR 400 / 3.6ml

Packaging:
Oh yes I was eager to talk about this :)
The packaging makes it a winner in its price range. It comes wrapped in a cellophane inside an outer carton. The lipstick itself is in a rose-gold metallic tube..beautiful..classy...
Another thing that I liked is that they have the manufacturing date along with the shade name on the bullet sticker unlike other which have the details on the cellophane which gets thrown out.

The cap click lock and the packaging is sturdy and travel friendly.
Too Good!!!

Texture:
Well on applying,the lipstick feels like a creamy matte..a matte suited for dry lips as well but soon after it changes into a super matte finish. It seems a bit drying to my already dry skin. Oak Table makes the fine lines a bit more prominent. But every coin has two sides,the matte finish that makes it a bit drying ...makes it transfer resistant as well. Yes gals..you won't see your lipstick mark on that coffee mug or anywhere else for that matter ;) (Ahaan! its kiss-proof..totally!)

My Likes:
  • Beautiful packaging.
  • Creamy matte..no tugging!
  • Very pretty peachy brown nude shade.
  • Sturdy and travel friendly.
  • Transfer resistant.
  • Covers pigmentation in a single swipe.
  • Shimmers don't travel all over the face.
  • Stays for about 5 hours with meals.
My Dislikes:

  • Smells of Bay leaf (though it fades away within 10 min. of application)
  • False claim of 9 to 5.
  • Packed with shimmers.
  • Accentuates fine lines
  • Not for dry chapped lips
Last Word:
I love the shade and staying power but I'm not the biggest fan of super matte lippies and choc-a-block shimmers.
 
Repurchase:
Peony Goal may be...but not this one!

Over All Rating: 3.8/5
