Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Liner – Pink Blush

Bonjour Magnifico’s :)

When we go to malls hunting for a perfect office attire – We search for something that is budget friendly, long lasting and value for money than be it those formal shirts, trousers, bellies or bags. So here is something I’m about to review that stands tall on all the above mentioned factors – It’s a beautiful lip liner from the Lakme 9 to 5 range in shade Pink Blush.

Lakme 9 to 5 range is slowly and steadily turning into my staple. I have been flaunting Lakme 9 to 5 lipsticks ever since their launch in shade Toffee Nexus & Coffee Command plus their durable nail polishes and I will add the Eyeconic mascara and kajal to pour out my love for the brand ;) – That might have provided you Magnifico’s with more than a hint on how excited I’m to put across my views on their new lip liners.

So let’s begin with the in depth analysis on these cuties :D

Its the key first step to perfect lips.

My Experience with the Product :

Packaging : Lakme lip liner comes in a dusty rose colored sharpenable pencil packaging with a transparent cap – Its simple, travel friendly and adorable. The colored tail end complements the shade color which makes it easy to locate if you own more than one shade from the range.

Shade : Pink Blush is a shimmery pink shade with blue undertones.

Texture : The texture is super creamy and smooth that helps it glide fluently on to the lips without any tugging or pulling –  application experience is simply dreamy I must say ! :). Now being such creamy and soft on texture part yet I haven’t experienced any crumbling of the product and the balanced formula helps it sharpen well.

I can say that Lakme have perfectly struck a chord and have been successful in pulling out a lip liner with such an amazing balanced formula” 

Pigmentation : The color is superbly pigmented – a single stroke packs an opaque coverage. I was satisfied with the color pay-off feature offered by a single swipe of product. It doesn’t allow your lipstick to bleed plus it can also function as a lip filler casting a beautiful base that helps your lipstick last longer.

Finish : It settles down to a charming satiny finish. The shimmers present are pretty subtle plus gets beautifully complemented with the shade color leaving back a beautiful sheeny layer. I know few people might not like the shimmer presence but I adore the fact that its a twisty edge attach to these liners and as they say “A little bit of Shimmer does No Harm” ;)

A major flaw that I had experienced with other lip liners in past is they used to feel dry on my lips but the new Lakme 9 to 5 liners does not let my lips feel dry – +1 ;)

Staying Span : Now turning our attention to I guess the only flaw I did encounter – It does smudges a bit. But considering the immense quality on offer overall one can skip a minor hiccup. I have still experience its staying span for 4-5 hours which is impressive.

“Overall I can say just like the lipstick from the 9 to 5 range, these cuties are must have office essentials” :) Highly Recommended from my side.
