What is it and who is it for? Lakme Scarlet Drill is  a slight creamy matte lipstick which gives a very decent and subtle look to the face. Most people have a misconception that matte lipsticks tend to dry the lips, so they end up not buying them. But, this lipstick clears all the misconceptions and myths about matte lipsticks. This formula is suitable for all Indian skin tones.

My experience with Lakme Scarlet Drill

Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick Scarlet Drill Review 2

The Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick comes in a sturdy rosy-gold packaging. It is very sober to look at. The shade Scarlet Drill is a peachy-brown shade which is very unusual. It is wearable on an everyday basis, both formal and informal. Scarlet Drill has a beautiful fragrance.  The lipstick is creamy matte because of the presence of Jojoba oil in it and never fails to hydrate my lips for a long time. It has the goodness of Vitamin E and has a high-performance color fix formula that lets it stay for 8 hours without touch ups. The formula comes with SPF 15 and can be applied very easily.  The best part about this lipstick is that doesn’t settle into fine lines, but starts to fade after 8 hours and regular snacking. It has the least transferability, which makes it one of my favorite picks for all seasons. This lipstick can make anyone look decent, gorgeous and stunning. It makes my thin lips look radiant and fuller.  It is very affordable so I don’t mind wearing it every day. I love this lipstick so much that I have purchased the same for the second time. This shade is absolutely flawless and should be picked up by everyone for at least once. The only thing I didn’t like about this lipstick is that its tip isn’t like a bullet so women with thick lips might have a problem in applying it in one swipe.

  1. Super affordable
  2. Wearable on an everyday basis
  3. Creamy matte
  4. Hydrating and radiant
  5. Attractive packaging
  6. Doesn’t settle into fine lines
  1. Lacks a bullet-like structure on its tip
Overall Would I repurchase and recommend?

Yes, I would definitely recommend this shade to all the women. However, I will not repurchase it, because it was my second purchase.
