Hey Everyone,

As Durga Puja is just around the corner so probably you will see loads of makeup and beauty related talk for festivals on my blog and on my youtube Channel too for a few weeks from now.

So recently Lakme has launched 30 beautiful shades in their Lakme 9-5 PRIME + MATTE lipsticks range (Thankfully!!! ).
So it is a big confusion that which lipsticks one should pick from this entire Range.
So after a lot of research, I managed to grab four lipsticks.

Price:- Rs. 480/- for 3.6g.
Availability:- Lakme stores, Nykaa store (online too),

The shades I picked are:-

MAPLE MAP- A perfect nude lipstick for daily wear, perfect for fair to medium skin tone. One of my recent favorite nude lipstick.

ROSY SUNDAY- A perfect rosy nude shade of lipstick that will look equally flattering on all skin tone. Due to such versatile shade of this lipstick, that people are loving it so much. So, yes, it is a very famous shade in this entire range for which almost everyone has it).

PLUM PICK- A beautiful magenta kind of pink shade which will look beautiful on all complexion.

BERRY BASE- A perfect berry shade with red undertone a bit. Again a versatile shade for everyone.


The lipsticks come in a rose gold kind of carton box (like the usual packaging of 9-5 Lakme range). The lipstick comes in a glossy rose gold metal look case (same the usual 9-5 range of Lakme). Overall I love the packaging as the case of the lipsticks are so "Luxe".

My experience:-

Lakme definitely doing a great job nowadays by coming up one after another some awesome lipstick range. And this Lakme 9-5 PRIME + MATTE lipsticks range is one of the most affordable lipsticks. The texture of the lipstick is satin matte. They glide super smoothly on lips. It turns a bit matte after few minutes of application but definitely, it stays comfortable on lips for hours. Previously Lakme lipsticks do have a strong scent for which I use to avoid buying Lakme lipsticks but this one has no smell ( a very light smell which fades after few seconds of application) for which I just love it. The pigmentation of the lipstick is quite good as 1-2 swipes is enough to get an opaque coverage. The lipsticks stay pretty 4-5 hours on my lips ( declining the claim of 9-5 hours). The lighter shades fade leaving no stain while the brighter and darker shades leave a light stain on my lips which is at least a good point for me. I love the lipsticks that stain my lips as after fading I can still wear it few more hours.

Overall these lipsticks are definitely budget friendly and must have lipsticks for your stash. Moreover, the shade range is so vast I guess everyone can find out at least something for them for sure.

So here is the video where I have swatched all the 4 lipsticks that I grab.

Here are few more pictures:




That's all for today, until next time...Love Sammy :*
