7 Lakme 9-to-5 Lipsticks (The Office Stylist) : Swatches

Lakme is surprising us all with a whole bunch of new launches. I was at the counter two weeks back and finally saw the new 9 to 5 lipstick range. The metallic rose gold packaging is perfect to fall in love with. They look absolutely beautiful and classy!


The lippies felt really smooth in texture while swatching and yes since they are matte they would be a little drying too, but that is the case with all the matte lipsticks. Pigmentation is good. One (or two for some maximum) swipe is enough to give you coverage. Some shades do have shimmer, not the in your face kind, just fine shimmer (although I think shimmer was not necessary in a matte lipstick). The shades are mostly soft and very wearable.

Here are the swatches:

Lakme 9-to-5 Lipsticks

Oak Table: This is a peachy brown with some golden shimmers. The shimmers look pretty on the hand, not sure about how they would on the lips though. Little skeptical because of this, else it is a good shade. 

Coffee Command: This is a soft brown shade with just a bit of peach undertone in it. It is not the kind that would make your face look dull and mature even though it is brown. Reviewed HERE.

Toffee Nexus: A brown with pink undertones, I so fell in love with this shade. Check out the review HERE!

Rose Management: It is a soft deep rose shade. I think it is a shade that will look good on everyone.

Pink Slip: This is a light pink colour. Looked very pretty again. Light and fresh. 

Peony Goal: A peach pink (and some mauve) with golden shimmers. Again even though it looks pretty, the shimmers make me skeptical. 

Pink Colar: A slightly cool toned mauve pink. Pretty shade. 

Update: Check out the other 15 shades swatched HERE!

I am trying to make up my mind now about which one to buy. It is a difficult choice since almost all the colours are so wearable! But I think it would be either Toffee nexus or Rose management. Any suggesstions?
Will update you once I buy one of these gorgeous shades :)
