Who is it for? – This Lakme Red Rebel 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Lipstick is for all those who are looking for a matte lipstick which conceals all the hyperpigmentation and feels light on lips.
My Experience with Lakme Red Rebel 9 To 5 Primer + Matte Lipstick
It comes in a retractable rose gold metallic packaging with twist-up Mechanism and pulls off the cap, which shuts perfectly. The whole packaging looks chic and sturdy. It is quite traveling friendly and easy to use. No mess.
This has typical Lakme fragrance, it’s mild and feminine. This won’t bug you Even if you have a sensitive nose.
Its lightweight and nonsticky glides smoothly and sets matte in 20-30 seconds. My only concern is it settles in fine lines and accentuates it when it starts fading. So if you have dry lips, pre moisturize it.
Shade and pigmentation
I love love love the shade. It looks so gorgeous with minimal makeup. This one is definitely my go-to lipstick. It has orange undertones to it and looks florescent red in the sunlight. Will wash off on darker tones, Wheatish and cool tone beauties can wear this. You get maximum pigmentation in just one swipe. Conceals all hyperpigmentation of lips. No need to pre-conceal your lips. Just one swipe and tada you are done, sweetie.
Stay is quite average, which is quite disappointing. It stays for 3-4 hours after which it tends to fade away slowly. Also, this cannot survive meals. 90% of the product is gone from the sides.
