Lakme is literally on a new launch spree. One after the other, new product is being launched in the market. Their latest addition is a new range of 2-in-1 lip and cheek product called “Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color” to their “9To5” range. It is a no ordinary product as I find it to be unique as well as one of the best lip and cheek collection from Lakme. Being a lipstick frantic, I had to get one. There are 10 shades in total [swatches of all shades are included below], and I picked the shade “Coffee Lite.”
Price: INR 575 for 9 g [BUY HERE: Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Lip and Cheek Color, Coffee Lite, 9g]

Product Description: This new generation matte mousse feels incredibly weightless to wear all day, giving your lips a powdery matte finish and your cheeks a blush that completes your 9to5 look. Cap tightly after use.
My Experience with Lakme 9To5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color Coffee Lite
Packaging: This lip and cheek comes in a rose gold cardboard packaging, keeping up consistency with Lakme “9To5” range. The actual product is housed in a flesh-toned tube with a rose gold cap. It is a typical liquid lipstick packaging. Unless you read the shade name sticker at the bottom of the tube or open the cap, the shade of the lip and cheek color cannot be identified. With too many shades in your vanity, it would be really difficult. However, the wand is perfect with a pointy tip for a precise application and a hole in the center to fill the color up.
Texture: The texture of this lip and cheek color is soft, smooth, and mousse like. True to its name, it is absolutely weightless. It applies evenly and smoothly on the lips. The creamy formula settles down to a matte texture in seconds and does not move at all. It is super pigmented, and one swipe is quite enough to cover up even pigmented lips. It does not feel heavy or patchy at any point of time. For a change, it has a pleasant vanilla scent rather than the usual weird Lakme lipstick scent.
Shade: “Coffee Lite” is a beautiful nude brown with slight mauve undertones. This color is truly an MLBB shade for me. It is such a pretty and wearable shade for everyone. It could easily be the perfect nude for darker skin tones.
Below are swatches of all 10 shades in this range:
Rose Touch is a rosy nude.
Cocoa Soft is a chocolate brown.
Pink Plush is a neon coral pink.
Crimson Silk is a bright red with orange undertones.
Burgundy Lush is a brown-toned red.
Plum Feather is a plum pink.
Blush Velvet is a neutral nude, not for darker skin tones.
Tangerine Fluff is a bright tangerine orange.
Fuchsia Suede is a cool-toned fuchsia.
Performance: This lip and cheek color gives a powdery matte finish. It feels so soft and absolutely nothing on the lips, thus making it a comfortable wear. This gorgeous brown color can be a perfect nude and works best for daily wear. It glides on evenly and does not cling on to dry patches. It did not feel drying on the lips; however, prepping the lips is a must. The applicator picks the right amount of the product and aids in a precise application. Next dip for the product is not necessary. This lip color does not crease and transfers minimally. Unfortunately, it settles into fine lines if worn for a longer time. It stays on for good 6–7 hours and can survive meals. This lip color fades evenly and leaves a nice stain on the lips. It is quite easy to remove. Unfortunately, I couldn’t test this product as a blush because this particular shade does not show up on my skin tone. However, I heard that as a blush, you need to work really quickly with these lip and cheek colors. Overall, the formula of this lip and cheek color is to die for.
