LAKME 9 to 5 lip liner Red Alert review and swatch

Lakme 9 to 5 lip liner Red Alert

Lakme 9 to 5 lip liner is most used liner in my vanity. Lip liners are an absolute necessity when you need defined lips or you want to increase the wear time of your lipstick. It was totally worth to invest in lakme’s 9 to 5 lip liner because it is so soft to apply, color is awesome, deeply pigmented and long lasting. The only downside is that it doesn’t come with a sharpener, that may be a problem if you don’t have one or forgot to carry.

MRP: Rs. 375


Packaging: Liner comes in a wooden pencil,light pink in color with transparent cap. The end is color coded that makes it really easy to identify the color.



Color: Color is beautiful deep red.

Texture: Texture is really creamy and smooth, it glides very easily on the lips.

Application: Application is very easy, there is no tugging and pulling on lips. Being the texture so rich and smooth the color spreads evenly on the lips.

Finish: Matte

Pigmentation: Highly pigmented, gives deep red color in single swipe. You can build up the color in multiple swipes and it will not look patchy at all.

Longevity: Very long wearing color, i had the wear time of 6-7 hours with slight fading. Considering the worth of the liner, the wear time is quiet impressive.

9 TO 5 CLAIM: Lets talk about lakme’s 9 to 5 claim, in my view it does  justice to its name, not complete justice as i had a wear time of 6-7 hours but then it is very good considering the price. No touch up is required and color remains as such with small fading. Your lipstick will really last long if you will apply this liner underneath.  You can use it as it is with just a touch of gloss and you are ready to go.
