Hello beauty-holics,

How are you today? In a blink of eye, festive October passed by and November has arrived. As evenings become chilly, I crave for chai, butter pop-corns and soups. If you have ever heard or been to Rourkela, you will know how this small town welcomes winters. I hail from Rourkela and by the end of this week, I will be home. I am super excited and happy about going home after almost 2 years. Speaking of happiness, I was so happy to learn that Lakme 9 to 5 has launched Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color and I quickly grabbed 2 of them: Plum Feather & Pink Plush . I am excited to write about Lakme 9-5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip Cheek Color Plum Feather shade today and believe it’s perfect for this winter season. Hope you guys enjoy reading it with a bowl of pop-corn.


Cost : Rs 575 for 9 gm

Lakme-9to5-Weightless-Matte-Mousse-Lip&Cheek-Color-beautyandthesuitcaseMy Take on Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color Plum Feather Shade:

Packaging: This lip cream comes in a sleek brownish-pink tube packaging with a rose gold cap. The pear shaped applicator attached to the cap is extremely easy to use.  Outer packaging strikingly resembles the 9 to 5 Weightless lipstick range which is classy and apt. However, there is no colour indication and you have to read the shade at the bottom of the tube.


Consistency: The consistency of Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Colour is buttery soft and glides like a dream on lips. There is no tugging and neither is the texture too watery. Once applied on my lips it sits perfectly; after 30-45 seconds it sits on my lips with a brilliant matte texture and gives a barely there feeling.


Pigmentation: Now, this is the best part of this product. These babies are intensely pigmented. I have tried most of them on my brownish pigmented lips and all of them gave me a brilliant coverage.


Plum feather is a gorgeous plum red colour shade. Being a darker shade, I was a little conscious of wearing it and thought it will not go well as a day wear. I was wrong as the shade proves to be very versatile. This colour uplifts my complexion and brightens my face instantly once applied. While using it to get a day-out or casual look, it works best with nude eyes.


This is a must try shade for winters. Brides can bag this lipstick and will never regret it. It stays on my lips till 5-6 hours unless I have a heavy meal and leaves a pink tint if I wipe it. It does not fade unevenly and survives dry snacks and water.I apply a regular moisturiser underneath this lipstick and I am done, no extra preparation is required for application. While taking it off, I apply a creamy cleanser on my lips and massage it for a minute gently and swipe it away with cotton balls.


On my cheeks, I dabbed only 2 little dots with the tip of the applicator and blended quickly. The colour is way too intense at first but settled down in a sweet blush. A selfie below to share the intensity of blush closely.


 I am not a stark blush kind of person but the amount I have applied was just right for me. I feel more than 2 dots will give a very intense dolled-up look on cheeks which is not my personal favourite. Less is more in this case, hence this product will last me ages if only used as blush.
