Review by Karishma,
Hi Beauties,
Hope you are all doing great... I’ve missed writing for Indian Beauty Zone and I’m back for a review of a lipstick from the Lakme 9 to 5 range. Since, I’m joining work pretty soon I was looking out for peachy and some natural looking shades. I’m reviewing the shade Beige Post. Read on to know if it’s worth a buy! Let us see the Review in detail...

My experience with Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick Beige Post:
Firstly let’s talk about the packaging. Kudos to the Lakme team for coming up with this classy rose gold packaging. It looks so elegant. The cap shuts tightly, a little too tightly I feel... but that just makes it perfect for travelling in your handbag.

The shade and Pigmentation:
The shade name is mentioned on the bottom sticker. Only problem with this packaging is that if you own too
many shades from this range it’s nearly impossible to pick the one you want. I face this issue you every time.
The shade beige post is a pale peachy color with shimmers. It looks like a pretty warm shade if you just look at the bullet but on swatching you will realize it doesn't have much pigmentation and the shimmers are way too obvious. I made a blunder ordering it online without checking swatches.

This shade will suit only fair or cool toned skin tones. The pigmentation is not so great one swipe isn't enough to add color to your lips. And if you layer it looks like you are wearing shimmer on your lips. Looks pretty bad for an everyday shade that I thought it would be. It will definitely not work for those who have pigmented lips.
My experience with the other Lakme 9 to 5 lipsticks was pretty good in terms of texture but this one is a bummer in this department as well. The texture is not at all smooth. You need to tug and pull the lipstick so that it applies evenly. It doesn’t dry out my lips not does it keep them moisturized. The staying power is again not so great. It stays on for about 3-4 hours without any meals. It transfers slightly and does not settle into fine lines as well.

My likes with Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick Beige Post:
1. Cute packaging.
2. Does not settle into fine lines

My dislikes with Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick Beige Post:
1. Transfers a bit.
2. Staying power is slightly low.
3. Low pigmentation.
4. Wont suit Indian skin tone easily.
5. Not suitable for office wear.
6. Has a lot of shimmers.

Final Verdict about Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick Beige Post:
The cons are overpowering the pros for this shade. Hence, I would suggest you skip this shade unless you are fair skinned. Other than this shade, the other lipsticks from this range are amazing. I own two more shades from this range and I simply love them. So do try out the other shades that you may like! Skip this one for sure...

Hope you will find my Review useful...
