Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick in Saffron Gossip Review

Lakme's 9 to 5 range of lipsticks are my current favourite and keeping in mind the season's hottest trend of orange lips, I got my hand on the Saffron Gossip shade from the range.

Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick in Saffron Gossip:

Lakmé Nine to Five brings you a range of 15 shades that sit on your lips all day long. Enriched with Vitamin E; it conditions your lips & softens them with wheat germ oil. So, perk those soft, smooth lips with a touch of matte.

Price: Rs 400

Packaging: The Lakme 9 to 5 Lipsticks come in a rose gold packaging

Product: The Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick in Saffron Gossip is a bright orange shade

My Experience: When I swatched the Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick in Saffron Gossip  on my hand it looked amazing, just the right kind of orange that I was looking for. Yesterday when I tried it for the first time, I found out that the pigmentation was not that great on my pigmented lips. I generally stay away from matte orange and coral shades, as they will not show up on my lips.

But as this shade appeared so flawless on my hand, I thought it might suit me. But to my dismay, it dried my lips so much that it became flaky immediately after application. It started settling into the fine lines within some time. I felt so disappointed as I have loved all the other shades from the Lakme 9 to 5 Range and this was so not for me. After 2-3 hours the colour totally got settled into my lines and the only thing left was some shimmers.

1. Very bright orange shade
2. Will look good on non-pigmented lips
3. May stay for long time
4. Has shimmers

1. Dry for my lips
2. Color show off is poor for pigmented lips
3. Settles into fine lines
4. After few hours only the shimmers are left behind

Rating: 3/5

I will not say that this is a bad shade, but for me this shade is just not perfect. So I will suggest that you better try it on your lips before buying.
