Every month, brands like Lakme, Maybelline, L'Oreal Paris, etc. are coming up with various new launches and it is literally difficult to keep a track of all of them. I picked up a lot of new products from these brands past few months and have been trying them out ever since. Today, I am going to review a recent launch by Lakme which is called the Weightless Matte Lip and Cheek Color. I picked up two shades - Coffee Lite and Pink Plush from this range. The review for today will be for the Coffee Lite shade.

My Experience With Lakme 9 to 5 Coffee Lite Weightless Matte Lip and Cheek Color Coffee Lite:

Packaging: I love the amazing rose gold packaging of Lakme 9 to 5 range. The Weightless Matte Lip and Cheek Color comes in a cylindrical opaque body with a shiny rose gold slender screw cap. The screw cap has the applicator attached. I have used quite a few liquid lipsticks but this applicator is the most beautiful of all. It has a tear drop shape with a pointy tip and perforated body. It spreads the product beautifully on the lips and helps to apply the color evenly. Overall, the packaging is wonderful, efficient, lightweight and travel-friendly.
Shade: The shade 'Coffee Lite' is a soft mauve brown. In natural light and on lips, the color would look browner but for close swatches and under the flashlight, the mauve part is distinctly visible. On my NC42 skin tone, the color looks like a slightly deeper neutral color but is totally wearable for office. This would be a great MLBB for deeper skin tones. As a blush, it has a very earthy brownish color which looks beautiful and natural. Overall, this is wonderful neutral color.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is beautiful. In a single layer, it gives almost an opaque layer of color and I generally don't reach out for a second layer. It hides the pigmentation on the lips well and overall the pigmentation of the color is pretty strong. As a blush, you have to be very careful and start with 1-2 dots for the cheeks.

Texture: The texture is actually what it describes - Weightless Matte Mousse. The mousse based texture is lightweight with the right consistency. It feels nothing heavy on lips or sucks out the life out of your lips. It feels creamy smooth and sets into a soft matte finish. However, since it is a matte lip color, you need to prepare your lips prior application. The product is slightly hydrating and sets quickly after application. Therefore, when you are applying as a blush, make sure that you are blending this pretty fast before it sets. Overall, the texture is wonderful for dry lips.
Finish and Formula: The finish of the product is matte. The matte is not dry or with any shine but has a wonderful natural touch to it. It is far better than any liquid lipstick I have used so far. The product doesn't bleed or feather at all. It is almost transferproof and thus I like both the formula and finish.

Staying Power: The staying power of the color is around 5 hours and a lot depends on the fluid and food intake. Oily or greasy food tends to remove the color from the center of the lips towards the end of the day. Then, you might require a touch-up. Otherwise, the staying power is wonderful.
