Lakme 9 to 5 Rouge Ready Lipstick

My Experience with Lakme 9 to 5 Rouge Ready Lipstick

Packaging –

The outer body is rose gold in color. The packaging is secure and does not open easily, till opened. Shiny, glossy looking package does make it look like the quintessential Lakme semi-luxury product.

How to Apply-

Apply it evenly over your lips. Works well with a lighter, orangish shade dabbed on the lips after applying it; you can mix these shades to create the perfect warm maroon color.

Colour and Texture –

Rouge ready really does make you ready to go rogue. The beautiful maroon shade reminds you of the dark red rose for sure. The best thing about this lipstick is that it is creamy but gives the lips a matte effect. It lends the lip opaque color.

Stay duration –

It does not have the staying power of liquid matte lipstick but does manage to stain the lip for a long duration. It stays for 3-4 hours. But is not smudge-proof.

Scented –


What do I like about this product?

  3. Colour is perfect for people who like mauvish-maroon shades.
  4. The finish is soft and matte.
  5. This shade gives you a perfect lip stain if you’re into staining.

What do I not like about this product?
  1. It is not smudge proof.
  2. It’s got a cool tone.
Would I recommend/repurchase?

Its an average product, if you get the same shade at a cheaper price you can buy that too.

My Experience with Nicka K New York Perfect Nine Eye Shadow

Packaging –

This eyeshadow + blush palette comes in a small and secure package which is easy to carry and substantially durable. A basic applicator for the eyeshadow is provided in the package itself which makes it convenient to use anytime without too much hassle. The blush/highlighter is in lesser amounts compared to other brands’ packaging quantities.

Shades –

There are shades ranging from pure white shimmer to charcoal grayish shimmer; light pink to beautiful shiny golds, copper and brown. The blush is a light, bright pink with a lot of shine.

Texture –

The texture is powdery and glittery. The colors are well pigmented and easy to apply. It is easy to achieve dramatic eye makeup looks using the eyeshadow palette as it is able to give satisfactory opacity.

How long does it stay?

It stays in full glory until about 3 hours, but the pigment stays on without smudging for about 5 hours. The shimmer, however, wears off after 3 hours.

Fragrance –

It is a fragrance-free makeup palette.

What did I like about it?
  1. The shades of the eyeshadow, most shades are highly trendy as of now.
  2. Stays without smudging or mixing with other makeup elements even on oily skin.
  3. The different varieties of shimmer available make it a go-to palette for party looks.
  4. The charcoal gray/black shade helps me create the perfect smoky eye look without it looking too dark or smudging.
  5. Looks good on almost all skin tones.
  6. Stay time is good compared to other palettes available in this range.
  7. Gives the face a very good glow.
Why didn’t I like it?
  1. The eyeshadow and blush are a little powdery and you need to apply a makeup the base to enhance its color and keep it on for a long duration.
  2. The blush/highlighter is a little underwhelming and not easy to apply as it lacks pigment.
  3. Not a good option if you prefer matte looks too metallic looks.
  4. The advertisement of the product makes the black/charcoal gray shade look like navy blue.
Would I recommend this product?

Yes, I would highly recommend it as it a good brand’s, good quality product at an affordable price. The colors are delightful to work with.
