Today i am going to review one of my favourite nude-pink lipstick “Peony Goal” which comes from Lakme 9to5 matte lipsticks range. This range is quite an old launch from Lakme and is very popular for its huge range of soft everyday shades and powdery matte finish.
So let’s start the review 🙂
Lakme 9to5 Lipsticks Peony Goal Review And Swatches
Price: Rs 410/ Available online @amazon.in for Rs 410
Product Claims: Lakmé 9 to 5 range consists of a wide collection for daily office wear with subtle shades that require no touch-ups through the day, providing an impeccably styled look and allowing a hassle-free transition from the desk to the office party.
Combines amazing comfort with staying power that keeps you looking fresh for hours. With a long-wearing comfort technology. Offers a creamy color with Colorfix technology. Ensures 10 hours of intense crème color.
Packaging: The lakme 9to5 range comes in bullet lipstick with a gorgeous metallic rose gold packaging. The packaging looks very classy and elegant and I think it is the best part of this whole range. The lipsticks look absolutely beautiful and classic.
Texure, Formula & Pigmentation: Lakme Peony Goal is a mauvish pale pink color with gold shimmer in it. It has got a very powdery texture which is why it settles into a matte finish right from the application. But it glides on the lips smoothly without tugging or flaking. As it has a matte formula, it does dry out the lips mildly so moisturising and exfoliating your lips before application is a must. And though its drying it does not cling or becomes patchy over the wear time.
It is very nicely pigmented and stays for good 5-6 hours on my lips. As it is a lighter shade and lighter shades generally show a little lesser wear time as compared to the darker shades so i can not complain.
(Also i have tried the other darker shades from the same range, and they have shown a wear time of good 7-8 hours on my lips so full points on pigmentation) 🙂
So overall, the matte finish formula, the powdery matte texture and super pigmentation is what i see in the Lakme 9to5 long wearing matte lipsticks.
My review: Lakme Peony goal lipstick is a pale mauve pink with fine gold shimmer and is a perfect shade for an everyday wear. The gold shimmer though is not necessarily needed in it but as it is not overpowering or chunky it does not bother me much. It has a faint fragrance which is pleasent and fades away shortly. The powdery matte texture settles into a beautiful matte finish without being overly drying and flaky on the lips. The color however would look best on medium to fair skin tone and will not flatter the darker complexions.
The texture is mildly drying and can be overly drying for very dry/chapped lips, so I would not recommend it to the people with dry lips. But for others, its only slightly drying and do wear incredibly well through out the day.
The Lakme 9to5 matte Lipsticks are definitely worth buying. The texture of the lipstick is soft and powdery, has a matte finish and is really nicely pigmented. It lasts for good 5-6 hours without being super drying on the lips. The formula and texture of the lipstick is just amazing and so does the packaging.
I think, if you would want to try a long wearing matte lipstick in some of the soft everyday colors, you should definitely give it a try. They have a huge selection of shades with some lovely nudes in pinks, peaches and browns with some lovely bold colors in red.
I highly recommend!
