Lakme 9to5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Colour in COCOA SOFT: Review, Price, Swatches and FOTD

Well it's World Chocolate Day today and what could be a better way to celebrate it than wear a chocolate coloured lipstick and review it too :D 
So many times I've come across people dreading brown lipsticks but I have somehow always loved them...from MLBB lipstick shades..to much raved nude lipsticks..to lattes and finally deep chocolate browns..I love'em allllll!!! 
Heading over to this beauty called Lakme 9to5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Color in Cocoa Soft

Brand Claims:
An explosion of colour to your daily makeup routine, Lakmé 9to5 Mousse Lip and Cheek Color is here.
Lakmé’s first ever lip color in a mousse texture is super weightless and can be used as a cheek tint too. Available in 10 intense and vibrant shades, they last long and have a powdery matte finish. It’s 2 in 2 formula makes it an instant everyday favourite for the modern Indian woman of today.
Step 1: Open the cap. 
Step 2: Start applying from the centre of your upper lip. 
Step 3: Work from the centre towards the outer edges of your lip, following the contours of your mouth. 
Step 4: Glide across the entire bottom lip. 
Step 5: To apply it on your cheeks, gently rub it onto the apples.

Price: INR 575/-


The packaging of this beauty is in line with the Lakme 9to5 range,with that rose gold cap shining bright. Sadly, neither the tube is transparent nor colour-coded. So if you have more than one shade of it and you plan to apply it and rush to your 
college/office/any-damn-where--->your life is in trouble since all the shades appear same through the packaging. Long story short-some colour coding would have been wise on their part and convenient to us.
 Now coming to the wand part, this is THE BEST WAND I've ever used...ever!! It has a small depression kinda thing in the centre that holds up the product and packs well on lips. The wand is flexible and allows comfortable movement along the lips outline. I personally loved the pointed tip of it which isn't that commonly found in liquid lipsticks but is an absolute must. It allows very precise application.

Shade: Cocoa Soft 

The shade Cocoa Soft is a rich chocolate brown shade with a beautiful warm undertone. It will look beautiful on all skintones..fair,medium,deep!!
Now that it is meant to be applied on both lips and cheeks, I did give it a try to see if that actually works. In the images above I'm wearing it as a contour too,but to be honest even though it is blendable, I don't find working with this on cheeks is my kinda thing.
It is buildable and goes from nice warm chocolate to deep vampy dark chocolate brown! Fall fashion would see me flaunting this alot!

Lakme 9to5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Color in Cocoa Soft is by far the most comfortable liquid  I've used till date. They've practically said it all about the texture in the product name itself...Weightless Matte Mousse and true that. It has a mousse/lip cream kinda consistency that is thick enough. Even though the formula is rich and creamy,you won't feel you are wearing any lip colour at all.
 Its matte yet doesn't accentuate the fine lines..BEAT THAT!!
It has a very caramel'ly scent to it..very eclairs toffee kinds!

It is nicely pigmented but you anyway need 2-3 swipes of the product for a nice, even, seamless finish!

Staying Power:
The longevity of the product is impressive. It survived a meal and two coffees over a period of 6 hours!

Over All Thoughts:
I was a big fan of Lakme 9to5 range be it their Lipliners or Lipsticks and this Lip and Cheek Colour is definitely a lovely addition to the family. Consider me a convert!!
