Today I am gonna review my all time favorite Red shade Matte lipstick from Lakme 9 to 5 series .
The name of the shade is “RED COAT”
Lipstick Category: MATTE
What Lakme claims:
Lakmé 9to5 brings you a range of 15 high performance shades that sit on your lips all day long. Enriched with Vitamin E; the formula conditions your lips & softens them with wheat germ oil. Add some elegance and achieve smooth lips with a touch of matte.
The shade is “LAKME 9 to 5 RED COAT”.
Well talking bout the shade, this is pure red BOLD shade with no blue or orange or pink undertone to it.Its bright red shade which brightens up face instantly.It is very moisturizing and glides on lips without any efforts.It will suit all skin types.
3.6gms for 450 INR
The lipsticks are packed in Beautiful golden case which closes with a click sound.The size is very easy to carry and travel friendly.Due to sturdy packing one is assured that it will not open in bag.I really liked the packaging of this series.
Pigmentation and Texture:
These lip creams are super pigmented .They are just amazing .One swipe is enough for a perfect look.When applied they glide smoothly on lips without much effort.After few seconds of application they settle down to perfect matte which are NOT transfer proof .
Lips do not feel heavy at all, you wont feel that there is something applied on lips.They are moisturizing and not at all drying hence do not need any lip balm application underneath .
However lips need to be ex foliated nicely before applying this shade since fine lips of my lips were highlighted a lot .Also this shade actually bleeds so one needs to first outline the lips with a liner and then fill lipstick using brush.
I have always applied directly but could make out uneven lining of lips which actually doesn’t looks good.
Staying power :
The staying power of these lipsticks is around 2-3 hours especially during summers.However need touch ups post drink and food breaks.It starts wearing off from sides of the lips and leaves a nice red tint on lips. It can be easily removed using make-up remover or my all time favorite coconut oil.:)
This shade is always on high demand hence generally gets stock out .
Since I love Red and Orange shades lipsticks this shade had been in my top favorite list However application of lipstick could be a pain sometimes but once you have practice its just a cake walk .People who are new in experimenting with bold red lip colors must try this shade since its not very bright nor dull red.Its just a perfect one.And most importantly its awesome deal for the price you pay.
This shade is perfect for evening wear and parties.It instantly glows up face and goes very well with just a mascara and liner .People who like to carry bold shades can comfortably carry this shade.I definitely recommend it a try to people looking out for just perfect RED shade .
And yes would definitely repurchase it .
