Lakme 9-5 Lip Color Reviews : Coffee Command
I am back with another review. Let me give you all a little introduction about myself. I love taking care of my skin and getting dressed up but before coming in terms with this makeup industry I always used to think I am quite dark and tanned. And i was always scared and extremely conscious about lips. I feel that my lips are darker as compared to my facial skin. So, I always used to be a balm and gloss girl. I love glosses on my lips as I love the sun kissed shine they impart. But after coming in terms of makeup industry I thought of giving these lipsticks a try. And then Lakme introduced this innovative 9-5 range. I love most of the products of this range and the entire makeup industry is going gaga over their products.
Today, I am reviewing my first lipstick and let’s see if it would re-appear in my vanity box or not….

As it is said “Dressed to kill”. Stands so true with these lipsticks. They come in a slick looking bullet packaging. The lipstick is packed in shiny pink metallic box mentioning the entire product details and brand name. The box material is also quite good. Now, when you take out the bullet it comes in a pink-shiny silver color which just feels so young and chirpy in hands. The upper lid of the bullet is quite tight actually i can’t open it in my first try. So in that way it’s good and makes the product safe even when the lipstick is dropped. Since the product is quite slick it is quite travel friendly. The shade number and name is mentioned in the sticker at the bottom of the bullet.
This part impressed me the most. It settles in matte finish which is just lovely. It is quite moisturising and has a creamy texture. It feels so light and feathery on lips. Once applied it feels nothing on lips. Quite perfect for beginners.

Cons of Lakme 9-5 lip color : Coffee Command
My Views about Lakme 9-5 lip color : Coffee Command
The shade “Coffee Command” by name is quite interesting. As per the name I believe it was a coffee color shade that would be perfect for moms. But gosh i was so wrong. When the SA applied on my wrist it is a pretty brown shade which goes quite well as nude lips or office wears. It looks perfect nude on my NC 40 skin tone.
Single swipe gives a beautiful opaque finish. In all my swatch pics i have only singly swiped. You can of course build up the intensity with mores swipes but for beginners single swipe is fine.
The staying power is again nothing short of superb. This lipsticks stay easily till 5-6 hours. It survives drinks quite easily but with meals it starts to fade away leaving a beautiful brown faded color.
Whether I would recommend this product again:
Sure…Am i nuts not to???? I already have bought some more of this range and eyeing many more. You know girls right….
