Lakme 9To5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color Review

Lakme is launching one product after another and been ruling the market. The last Sabyasachi collection had some real gems and I am in love with the Illuminating Shimmer Brick. This time when I saw glimpses of 9To5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color on their social media channel, I was excited to get my hands on a few.

Lakme 9To5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color Review

These Lip & Cheek Colors are a part of Lakme 9To5 range and an extension to Lakme 9To5 Weightless Matte Mousse line. I have tried the Lakme 9To5 Weightless Matte Mousse Foundation and it didn’t impress me but mousse texture in blushes is something I prefer always.

The product comes in a rose-gold cardboard packaging and inside the Lip & Cheek Colors come in flesh toned tubes with rose gold caps. Unfortunately the outer color isn’t matched with the shade so finding the shade of your choice from a pile of colors is a challenge. There is only a transparent label at the bottom that has the shade name and if it comes off .. I don’t know how I am going to find the color without opening each & every tube.

The wand has a pointy tip which has a hole in the middle. I really like how the pointy tip gets a precise and neat application each time ! The hole fills up with the color so that you don’t have to go back to the tube to get more.

Texture & Formula – True to the name 9To5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color have a mousse light weight texture. The formula is quite creamy when you apply it first but sets into a matte finish after couple of minutes. The finish is velvet matte and looks gorgeous.

After initial hour you might start feeling a little dry on the lips. It is a long staying matte formula so dryness will be there. However i don’t mind it and exfoliate lips before applying any matte lip product. If you have fine lip lines then they are going to get accentuated. The formula doesn’t crumble or peel off, it stays put for a long time.

On cheeks I find it a little difficult to apply and blend since these dry and set pretty fast. Best way is to take some of it on the fingers and blend on the cheeks. Do not dot it and then wait before blending otherwise you will be left with a streaky finish. Once blended it looks gorgeous !

Pigmentation – I find most of them very pigmented. One stroke gives opaque finish. My upper lip is dark, but all the shades were able to provide an even tone without darkness peeking through them. I have Plum Feather on my cheek & Burgundy Lush on lips in the picture below 🙂

Staying Power – I get a wear time of good 6+ hours. These do survive meals and stay on for quite a decent amount of time.

Lakme 9To5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color is priced at Rs 575 and available Online & in stores

Overall Thoughts

I am quite loving the shade range as well as the overall performance of Lakme 9To5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color. The formula is light weight with a valve matte finish. It stays on for a good time as well. I don’t enjoy them on the cheek as much though. 

Rating : 4/5
