What Lakme Says :
It’s matte and enriched with the power of a primer... Say hello to Lakmé 9to5 Primer + Matte Lipstick.
With smooth application and an intense colour payoff, the Lakmé 9to5 Primer + Matte Lip Colors come with a built-in primer that sets a flawless matte base and evens out your lips. Available in 30 highlight pigmented and work-ready shades that last up to 12 hours, touch-ups are now a thing of the past.
How To Use/Apply :
Step 1 : Create a cross on your cupid’s bow.
Step 2 : Start applying from the centre of your upper lip.
Step 3 : Work from the centre towards the outer edges of your lip, following the contours of your mouth.
Step 4 : Glide across the entire bottom lip.
The packaging is almost same as the lakme 9 to 5 range but more classy and more shiny. It comes in a gorgeous chic rose gold bullet form which has the lakme 9 to 5 primer+matte written on it and the shade name underneath the bullet. The bullet shuts with a single click securely . The packaging is not color coded. The bullet itself is wrapped in a polythene properly and securely housed in a rose gold cardboard packaging which has all the details mentioned over it like the price, shelf life etc.
It is travel friendly and due to its sturdy bullet, it can easily fit in a office bag or college bag.
The texture is completely matte and it is not drying at all on to the lips. It is the creamy matte texture lip color which glides on so smoothly. The shade itself is so unique and the texture is so good which feels a bit on the creamier side on its first application but after a few minutes, it settles down to a perfect matte finish and that too non drying on the lips. It stays about 5-6 hours with a single coat only and and with two coats may last for about 2-3 more hours with a total of 7-8 hours. The only issue is it settles into the fine lines but a good makeup remover and a lip balm later may do the trick. It does not smudge or transfer too much. This shade will suit fair to medium skin tones really well.
Shade & Pigmentation :
It is a beautiful pink shade with a hint of coral or I can say coralish pink. The shade is good at pigmentation and a single swipe is enough but one can always apply the second sipe for more intense look. The color is gorgeous and almost transfer proof. Ya, it does transfers a bit but not completely washed out, it genuinely stays there on the lips . The beauty of this lipstick is that the color remains the same just lightens a little bit when you eat something or drink something and does not change the color to some different color link pink or red which I find with the colorbar velvet matte lipsticks.
Pros Of Lakme 9 To 5 Primer+Matte Lipstick Rosy Mind Shade :

Cons Of Lakme 9 To 5 Primer+Matte Lipstick Rosy Mind Shade :
The only con I found is the staying power claim. It lasts on my lips for a maximum of 7 hours not for the 12 hours.
Final Verdict :
Lakme 9 To 5 Primer+Matte Lipstick Rosy Mind is a beautiful coral pinkish shade which is really great at pigmentation, stays for longer period of time when compared to its price and from a brand called lakme which I cannot resist.
