Product Review: Lakme 9 to 5 Toffee Nexus Lipstick

Hey ladies!

Today after a long break, I am back with a product review 🙂

It’s the Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick in the shade of Toffee Nexus (YUMMY NAME!)

I ordered it from Jabong where it is priced at INR 360/- against the market price of INR 450/- !!

You can order it here 😀

The product comes packaged in a peachy pink card box, with silver lettering. Looks simple and elegant; I like it! 🙂

The lipstick has a rose gold metallic body which looks rich and sophisticated. It is slightly rounded at the middle, giving it a cute chubby look 😀IMG_20151128_125739801

Let’s take a look at the shade 🙂IMG_20151128_130402071

This is how it looks on my inner arm. I find it to be a very beautiful shade 🙂

The texture of this Lakme 9 to 5 lipstick is quite creamy, and it is well tinted. I have pigmented lips and I could see that the colour had built up well with the first swipe itself. The second coat helped to play up the colour better!

Now for the drawbacks – The lipstick has a medicine-like smell. But I’m not sure if that’s the case with the entire range, or just my lipstick :/ The smell diffuses after a minute of wearing the lipstick.

Secondly, I feel that this lipstick  doesn’t have much staying power. Its creaminess makes it come off at the slightest contact with anything, be it a mug, straw, tissue etc. I liked the shade better, after blotting with a tissue 😛

This is how it looks on me (blotted):

My Verdict:

Sooo, I did say that toffee Nexus is a beautiful shade of lip colour. BUT, I’m afraid that it doesn’t flatter my dusky complexion. The swatch looked pretty on my arm, but my face is darker in comparison. I’m sure it will look great on fairer complexions 🙂

Nevertheless, Toffee Nexus will definitely be my go-to lipstick for a nude look 😀
