New Lakme 9to5 Primer + Matte Lipsticks: Review, Swatches
There are so many new lipstick launches going around that it’s quite difficult to keep track but today I have these newly launched Lakme 9to5 Primer + Matte Lipsticks. I got 5 shades from the collection, so let’s see how they perform
Product claims: Lakme 9 to 5 primer matte is the first lip color with built-in primer for a long lasting, matte finish. The built-in primer makes the colour stay comfortably for 12 long hours. It also has a smooth application ensures an intense colour payoff.
Lakme 9 to 5 primer matte is available in 30 work-ready shades, so you can match your look with perfection. Lakme 9 to 5 primer matte gives a smooth and creamy finish which doesn’t make the lips crease. Moreover, you don’t require touch-ups for not 8 but 12 hours. The key primer ingredient ensures that the lipstick gives smooth finishes and feels extremely comfortable on your lips.
Pro Tip: For a precision pro-matte finish, line your lips with the Lakme 9 to 5 Lip liner and follow it up with Lakme 9 to 5 primer matte lipstick.

Packaging: Lakme 9to5 Primer + Matte Lipsticks comes in a metallic rose gold packaging and looks similar to the old 9 to 5 lipsticks. The packaging looks good but it isn’t sturdy and feels flimsy as it is made of plastic.
My experience with Lakme 9to5 Primer + Matte Lipsticks:
Lakme 9to5 Primer + Matte Lipsticks have a lightweight creamy texture which slips nicely on lips without any tugging or pulling. They don’t feel drying on lips like the regular matte lipsticks.
The formula is decently pigmented and gives complete coverage to the lips in just 2 swipes. The lipsticks give an almost even coverage except for a few lighter shades which can go patchy.
Coming to the longevity of the lipsticks, this claims to be 12 hours as they have built in primer. I feel the formula is transferable if not blotted for a long lasting matte finish. And with eating and drinking, they last for around 4-5 hours. They do leave a hint of color on lips but its best to go for a fresh application. I wish the formula was a bit longer lasting and transfer-proof.
Shades I Received:
- Rosy Sunday: It is a Pinkish peachy brown. Very wearable.
- Rosy Mind: It is a beautiful rosy pink shade. Perfect for pink lovers.
- Cherry Chic: It is a medium rich rusty marronish red shade.
- Saffron Gossip: It is a bright neon orange shade. Will wash out Indian skin tones. Now the best formula.
- Cabernet Category: It is a rich dark brown shade.
Recommendation: Lakme 9to5 Primer + Matte Lipsticks have a beautiful packaging with a decent formula which gives rich color and demi-matte comfortable finish to the lips. Also, these are available in 30 gorgeous shades ranging from reds, nudes, pinks, and orange. I just wish the packaging had been a bit sturdy and the lipsticks lasted a little longer.
