Lakme 9 to 5 Matte Lip Color Review

“The new Lakme 9-to-5 Lipsticks are absolutely fabulous! The texture is soft and powdery, they apply with a matte finish, are superbly pigmented and stay a long time without being super drying. They are slightly drying though over 5-6 hours of wear so make sure to use a lip balm underneath. But they don’t flake off or cling to the lips like long wear lipsticks do sometimes and I really like that. The shade selection is quite lovely with lots of pinks, peaches, and other soft everyday wear shades.”
