I’m not a huge fan of matte lipsticks in general but Lakme has done these just right. These are quite smooth and creamy during application, very pigmented and settle into a powdery matte finish after some time. They stay on well and while they aren’t hydrating, they aren’t very drying on the lips either. The best part is the shade selection – I believe they have about 40 shades and have a lot of great everyday wear shades along with some pretty neons as well!

For a more detailed review, you can read THIS post.

Toffee Nexus is a pink neutral- very natural and the slight warmth makes it great for Indian complexions. Lovely MLBB (my-lips-but-better) shade for fair to medium skin tones.

Red Chaos is similar but with a little red through it. On my lips, it comes out very peachy pink on my lips – less nude than Toffee Nexus. I love it and highly recommend it! In my FOTD, it looks a little lighter – in person the  color is a touch deeper. Great shade!

  1. Thanks for this post Ankita, I had my eyes on Toffee Nexus but from the swatch I think Red chaos might look better on me… The former might wash me out.

  2. Me too looking forward to try Red Chaos for daily wear 🙂 Also Ankita could you please suggest a red lippie (brand/shade) for special occasions… i mean somewhat glamorous 🙂 for indian (medium – fair) skin tones?? thanks a ton in advance 🙂

  3. I have a Wildberry Wednesday. I love this 9 to 5 range from Lakme. Also, love the packaging. Wear time is decent without meals. What is your take on the wear time Ankita ?

  4. Red chaos looks lovely… nothing like what the name suggests though.
    On a side note, was just checking out an old post of yours. Incredible how you have improved the quality of the images over time… Fantastic and so very professional 🙂

  5. Can someone tell me where can I buy these shades in Mumbai? I don’t live in India but i can get someone to buy them.

    Thanks,Ankita. You look awesome. This frame suits you

  6. both the colors are lovly…but my pick would be red choas…..i have slight pigmented lips would you suggest any makeup remedy ….so that any lip color would show well…please…reply soon…

  7. I always used to use dark colors, since i am wheatish in complexion, but last week i bought the Red chaos after seeing the office make up video…..i must say its is just great!, the color is not too dark, not too light as to make your skin lool paled out….it is just right, and i loved it.

    Thanks
