Today I have 2 beautiful shades from the Lakme 9-to-5 range that are perfect for everyday wear – Toffee Nexus and Red Chaos. I wore Red Chaos in my Work/College Makeup Tutorial.
Price : Rs 400 for 3.6 g
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!
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!
