I had recently reviewed the Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color in the shade Pink Plush on the blog and coincidentally, a few weeks after that I received two more shades from the range in a PR package. Therefore, I decided to create another blog post comparing the different shades and the formula of the product across different shades. Read on to find out my thoughts on the shades Crimson Silk, Rose Touch and Pink Plush from this range of weightless lip creams.
All the shades of the Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color come in identical peachy pink tubes with rose gold lids. The only way to differentiate between the shades is by the names written at the bottom of the tubes. The wand has a doe-foot shape with an indentation in the middle which picks up the perfect amount of product and allows precise application of the lip color.
The formula of all the shades seems pretty similar to me, it is lightweight and moussey and feels extremely comfortable on the lips. I also like the sweet butterscotch scent which is similar across all the shades. While the shade Pink Plush is a warm-toned pink with peachy undertones, the shade Rose Touch is a cool-toned pink with mauve undertones. Both these pinks should flatter skin tones up to NC42. My personal favourite shade out of the three that I have is Crimson Silk, it is a beautiful red that will flatter all Indian skin tones. It is the perfect combination of warm and cool undertones and looks really pretty on me without being over the top. The longevity of Crimson Silk is also more than that of the two pink shades, while the pink ones come off quite easily with oily food, Crimson Silk leaves behind an even stain. The pink ones will stay on your lips for 4-5 hours without fading and the red shade will easily last on your lips for 7-8 hours without fading unless you eat something really oily.
Overall, I really enjoy wearing these lip creams both as a blush and a lip color on a regular basis because they feel like nothing on my face. They also work well as a cream eyeshadow for a monochromatic makeup look. If you are someone who is looking for comfortable lipsticks to wear on a daily basis then the Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lipsticks are tailormade for you. Priced at INR 625, these lipsticks are quite affordable and all the shades I have tried so far have thoroughly impressed me. What is your favourite shade from the range?
