Hey, guys! Today’s post will be a review on another new product that was launched this month. As you can tell from the title, today’s review is about the new member of the Lakme 9 to 5 family and it is their Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Colour. I am a lover of matte lipsticks. Lately, I have been really into liquid matte lipsticks and lip creams. So, as I came to know about these Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color, I knew I had to get at least one of those. Considering the seasonal vibes and upcoming weddings, I chose to get a bold lip colour. From what I could assume from the shade names, I thought the shade Crimson Silk would be the one I was looking for. Now, let’s jump into the review!

Price- Rs 575/- for 9g [Buy here]

Packaging- The Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color lipsticks come in rose-gold cardboard boxes which house the pinkish tubes with rose gold screw caps. The shade names are written at the bottom of the tubes. The packaging is quite similar to any other liquid lipstick packaging. Like any other product from Lakme’s 9 to 5 range, this is also very attractive in terms of looks. The applicator is leaf-shaped which ensures a perfect application as it reaches the corners of the lips easily. The pointy tip is perfect to shape your lips.

Shade- The shade that I got is Burgundy lush which is a beautiful brown-toned red. The warmth of this shade would flatter most Indian skin tones. The dark, brick-red shade is perfect for the winters. It would be great for Christmas celebrations and also for the weddings.

Pigmentation- Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color Burgundy Lush is intensely pigmented. Only one swipe of it gives an opaque coverage. It perfectly conceals dark patches on the lips.

Texture- As you can tell from the name of the lipsticks, they have a mousse-like texture. This unique texture gives them an airy, light-weight feel which makes them really comfortable to wear. They are so light that it feels you have nothing on your lips. I have the Miss Claire Soft Matte lipsticks which are the alleged dupes of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. Although I haven’t tried all the shades, but comparing the two that I have I can say that the Miss Claire Soft Mattes are definitely denser than the Lakme 9 to 5 Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek  Color. These lip & cheek colors are super blendable. Although they take a few seconds to set so you have to be really quick with them while applying. Apart from that, they blend quite easily and seamlessly giving you a subtle flush on the cheeks.

Staying Power- These two-way blush cum lipsticks has a pretty good staying power. On my lips, it stays for good 5-6 hours at a stretch. After that, it starts to fade away from the centre of the lips. For me, it survived a full-course dinner, with a little fading. Although it is not completely transfer-proof or smudge-proof, it doesn’t bleed either.

My Experience with Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color Burgundy Lush

Overall, I am quite happy with the one I got from the range. I do like their texture, blendability and staying power. The shade that I got, Burgundy Lush, is so gorgeous and it compliments my skin tone a lot. Being a mousse texture the lipsticks are not as drying as the other liquid lipsticks but it’s definitely not moisturising either. I have dry lips and it starts to get really dry on my lips from an hour after the application. It clings to the lips, accentuating the dryness. Those who have extremely dry lips should totally skip this.

The good things are that these lipsticks do not settle into the fine lines, they do not bleed and they are extremely comfortable to wear. These lipsticks are not completely transfer-proof. They are beautifully packaged, travel-friendly and they fit into your purse. I have combination skin and my cheeks are usually very oily most of the time. This lipstick as a blush lasted on my skin for 3-4 hours. I generally not into cream blushes but this one blends really well and gives a natural flush to the cheeks. I wish it lasted a little longer. Removing this lipstick is really easily. Just take some makeup remover onto a cotton round and hold it on your lips for 30 seconds and then wipe it away.

I would recommend these Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Colors if you like liquid lipsticks but want to try a less-drying version. Have you tried them? What are your views? Let me know if you try. Will talk to you in my next post. Till then, be safe & keep smiling!

Hello, all!

Recently, I was on a hunt for a good loose powder for every day. You know how hot and humid is West Bengal right now. So, I was thinking of ditching my compacts and try a loose powder instead. Today I am going to review something that I had been testing for more than two weeks and am finally ready to share my opinion with you. I am talking about the Faces Ultime Pro Mineral Loose Powder. I had heard a lot of good things about their Ultime Pro range, especially the lip products but never got to try them.

Faces Ultime Pro Mineral Loose Powder, as the brand describes, is an innovative non-comedogenic formulation which offers protection from harmful UV radiation and imparts a silky, irresistible touch to facial skin. It does not clog pores and is hypoallergenic. It comes with a unique, spill-proof, easy-to-use applicator. Suitable for light to medium coverage on all skin types.

Price- 699 INR

Packaging- Faces does an amazing job in terms of packaging. No matter what the price tags are, all their products come in a sleek, black outer packaging. It gives the feeling of a higher end product. The Faces Ultime Pro Mineral Loose Powder comes in a black, plastic case with a metallic screw lid. The lid has an attached sponge/puff as an applicator. The case has a sifter that is used for dispensing the right amount of product and to ensure there is no spillage. The packaging is very thoughtful which I liked.

Application- You can apply the product directly using the puff, which I don’t usually do. I like to use a powder brush instead. I take a fluffy eye brush and swirl it on the sifter and set my under-eye concealer and for the rest of my face, I use a medium powder brush.

Shade- Faces Ultime Pro Mineral Loose Powder comes in 5 shades i.e. Natural Beige, Ivory Beige, Golden Beige, Honey Beige and Sand Beige. I got the shade Golden Beige which has a yellow undertone to it. Although the shade looks pretty dark in the container but it looks natural when blended into my skin. It will suit medium someone with skin tone perfectly.

Texture- The texture of the Faces Ultime Pro Mineral Loose Powder is silky smooth. It is a very finely milled powder that goes on smoothly on the skin. The product is very lightweight which makes it useful for summers.

Coverage- The coverage of this product is not completely sheer as it is not a translucent powder. It gives a very light coverage when applied using the puff that comes with it. It does not cover blemishes or any kind of discoloration or marks. Being a light coverage product, there is no chance of it making your face cakey.

Wear Time- This product stayed onto my face for almost 6 hours which is pretty good for this weather. It does not control oil or sweat, not does it clog the pores.


  • Nice and handy packaging.
  • Easy to use.
  • Light-weight.
  • Comes with a puff.
  • Nice texture.
  • Has a nice sheen.
  • Gives a natural finish.
  • Good staying power.


  • Light coverage.
  • Does not come with any SPF.
  • Does not control oil.

Overall, I really liked the Faces Ultime Pro Mineral Loose Powder as it is suitable for all skin types and is very lightweight. I use it every time I step out of the house, especially if I am in a hurry. I use it in two ways, sometimes I usually dust it all over my face just set my makeup and mattify the skin a little bit, but sometimes I like to use it to bake my makeup. This product has a slight sheen to it which gives out a very subtle glow to the skin. The brilliantly handy packaging makes it travel-friendly and easy to use. Although it has a very light coverage I like it because I don’t necessarily want my compact or powders to be full coverage. I just like to use them to set my foundation and concealer.  This product, in my opinion, does not do something really exceptional for your face. The price tag, thus, is slightly higher for the job it does. I would have really appreciated if they had SPF to it. I would recommend you guys to try out this product if you are looking for a powder that would give a natural finish.

Which is your favourite powder/compact at the moment?

Hello everyone, today’s review is on my favourite of the Revlon Matte Balms and it is the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm Sultry. If you are following me on FaceBook you would know I have shared a picture of a Shopperstop package and asked you to guess what I got for myself. Today, I am sharing it. How can I be left behind while the whole nation is raving about the Revlon Matte Balms that has been recently launched in Indian market along with the other variant i.e. Lacquer Balms! When I first saw international beauty bloggers reviewing Matte Lip Crayons and swatching the Matte Balms, I was head over heels in love with the lovely shades. As I was preparing my list for the shades I was about to procure from the U.S., I heard the good news. The super-gorgeous lippies were introduced to India! 

I have used their Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains and loved them. As a matte lipstick lover, I got to try out the Matte Balms. There are 8 scrumptious shades, from pinks to reds, plums to browns. I had shortlisted 3 shades from this range, among which, two were pink. Not all pinks suit my skin tone so without taking any risk I chose the 3rd one, which is named as Sultry.

Packaging: These Matte Balms come in a wonderful matte packaging. It comes in a pencil/crayon kind of form with a twist-up bottom and a tight cap. You don’t need to sharpen them, only twist the bottom.

Shade: I am really bad at describing colours, but I will try to do it for you. Sultry is actually a mixture of matte pink, plum and brown, as my eyes can identify. Whatever it is, I like it very much. It will suit almost all Indian skin tones.
Product (Texture, Pigmentation & Staying power): The product is very creamy in texture and easily glides on the lips. It gives a decent coverage in a single swipe and goes absolutely opaque in two swipes. You don’t need to layer it but if you want to make it more intense, you can always layer it up. It doesn’t give you the powdery, drying matte effect, it actually has a velvety matte formula which doesn’t let your lips dry out. I have a tendency to eat up my lipsticks, nothing stays on my lips more than 2-3 hours, does that happen to any of you or I am the only one with this feature on this planet?! 

Anyways, this lipstick stays on for good 3-4 hours on me, can stay a little bit more on others. It transfers a little when touched. Doesn’t feather out or doesn’t leave any stain behind when wiped off.

Stylish, sturdy, matte packaging.
No need to sharpen.
A lovely shade that would suit any Indian skin tone.
Creamy yet matte finish, good for Indian summer and this horrid humidity.
Decent wear-time, almost 3-4 hours.
Nice coverage, eliminates dark patches and uneven tone decently.
Easily available on any Shoppers Stop outlet, can be found online at Shoppersstop.com.

A little transferrable.
Will make a hole in your pocket.

All I have to say is: If you have loved Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains and if you love matte lip crayons, you must go for the Revlon Matte Balms. Those who love hint of pink on their lips without going crazy and aren’t actually very adventurous with lipsticks can definitely get a hold of this lipsticks. This range has 9 other lovely shades to choose from- Elusive, Unapologetic, Standout, Audacious, Striking, Shameless, and Mischievous. 
My Rating: I will deduct 2 points for the excessively high price. Thus, it will get an 8/10 rating from me.

Will I buy it again?Though I love the shade and the formula very much but I don’t have any plan to buy it again. If I make my mind, I will mind any other shade from this range. I am waiting for a discount now.
