Lakme 9 to 5 Scarlet Drill Lipstick Review

24 Jun

Hey Everyone,

Hope you all had a great weekend ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 beautifulย  pink on my lips with a dash of red and orange to it. The best thing about theseย  (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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Cheers ๐Ÿ™‚

Lakme Absolute Matte Lipstick Peach Carnation-review and swatches

22 Nov

Namaste beautiful people!

I have warmed up to Lakme’s Absolute collection a little late I know but I am glad I finally did with this beautiful lipstick -Peach Carnation. The Lakme Absolute collection needs no introduction. It has been around for almost a year and loved by most of us.

Price: ย Rs. 375 (increased to Rs. 395/-) for 3.6 ml of product

It is one of the most loved shades of the range and is pink brown in color -ideal to be worn to office as well as it looks very natural on the lips, especially on Indian skin tones. I too got this one after I read its review by a fellow beauty blogger.

For me it is my MLBB shade (my lips but better) Looks very natural. Despite being matte, these glide super smoothly, feels light and the lips feel a little moisturized too. But if you have dry lips then it can make them look drier.

Here’s the Report Card:


  • Fairly good staying power
  • Glides on a like a dream
  • Nice packaging
  • Reasonably priced


  • Drying on the lips
  • Need to exfoliate and moisturize before applying-might do some good to us lazy bones ๐Ÿ˜›
  • Color can look severe/made up on some
