  • Perfect matte finish.
  • It is so light on your lips that you forget you’re wearing any product on your lips. I didn’t feel the slightly heavy feeling of wearing lipstick at all.
  • Furthermore, it does not look cakey on your lips.
  • It  has a smooth texture that it glides on your lips pretty smoothly.
  • It is not shimmery (I’m not a huge fan of shimmery lipsticks).
  • With the right shade of lip liner, it makes your lips look fuller.
  • It is travel friendly. The cap and the container are quite sturdy.
  • It will look great on people with wheatish or medium skin tone.
  • When it fades, it leaves a natural tint on your lips without being patchy.
  • Affordable (you can get this lipsticks online for just rupees 350 ).
  • Lakme 9-5 lipstick has a shelf life of 24 months.


  • It dries out your lips. So, it’s a must to moisturizer your lips before application.
  • The lipstick stays on for 2-3 hours only. Obviously the 9-5 claim is quite far-fetched. It semi survives meals. Reapplication is needed.

Rating: 4.4/5


  • Go easy on the eye makeup while wearing red lipsticks. It distracts the viewer from your beautiful lips and at times gives an impression of “too much makeup“.
  • Be careful while choosing the right shade of red. If you have a warm skin tone, go for red shades with warm undertones like coral or orange. If you have a cool skin tone, go for bright red with pinkish undertones and bloody red shade too will look excellent on you.


I had bought this product a year and a half ago when the matte lipsticks were kind of new in the market. I had instantly fell in love with it. Seriously, I was more of a gloss girl until then. I am not a huge fan of sticky, oily feeling of lipsticks but then after this lipstick it is safe to say I DID get what the big deal about lipsticks is!!
