Lakme 9 to 5 Scarlet Drill Lipstick Review

24 Jun

Hey Everyone,

Hope you all had a great weekend 🙂 Here is a review of one of my recently bought Lipstick from Lakme’s all-new 9 to 5 range-Scarlet Drill.

Price: Rs: 400/-

The brand-new lipstick range comes in metallic pink case with ‘9 to 5’ printed on it.

I wasn’t aware of the new range but got to know about it at a cosmetics store. The collection has beautiful earthy colors to choose from that would suit the Indian skin tones fairly easily.

Scarlet Drill looks like a beautiful  pink on my lips with a dash of red and orange to it. The best thing about these  (I have tried three from this range!) lipsticks is that they are pigmented, are matte but creamy aaaaand they stayed on my lips for about 2 to 2.5 hours! (Woot! Woot!)

Yep that’s a reason worth cheering for because I have tried sooo many lipsticks that promise to stay on and on but it’s rare to find one that really stayed on my lips. So yeah I am delighted to discover these beauties!

This lipstick easily survives tea and snacks and stays on as a visibly beautiful stain on my lips 🙂

  • Matte lipstick-might dry lips in winters
  • Wish it had more staying power 😉

Report Card:


So ladies, go ahead and splurge on these beauties, you won’t regret it 🙂

Cheers 🙂

    Ok, boss. Next purchase – the 9 to 4 in red/brick? Do they have it?
