Lakme 9-to-5 Weightless Matte Lip & Cheek Mousse, Coffee Lite : Review

I am sure you know that Indian blogsphere went quite crazy when these were launched a few months back. 
Yes, I am reviewing this one quite late, but I have reduced impulse shopping a lot and bought this one after a lot of thought. So finally here are my thoughts about the Lakme 9-to-5 Weightless Matte Lip & Cheek Mousse

Simple packaging. Sturdy and travel friendly. The tube is the same for all the shades, which makes spotting a color difficult if you have more than one of these in your kit. The doe foot applicator picks up a good quantity of the product and spreads well, the pointed tip helping in precise application.
The range has 10 shades -nudes, pinks to deep reds.

Formula of these is creamy, smooth and mousse like. It feels quite light when applied and you get opaque color in one swipe. It settles down to a matte finish after sometime (these will transfer initially but you need to let them settle down). The formula is comfortable to wear, but I find it to be drying after sometime.

For me it works decently  onthe lips,the but I like to use this a lot more on cheeks! It does not look patchy and blends in well.

Coffee Lite is a brown with a hint of taupe and pink in there. It looks more brown nude on the lips than pink nude. It would suit light-medium skin tones well.
As I said before, I do not like to wear this on the lips, this shade doesn't really do anything for my skin tone. But I enjoy wearing it as a blush quite a bit. It gives a very natural look.

If you are on the lookout for affordable matte liquid lipsticks, you can give these a try.
Though I do personally like the Miss Claire soft matte lip creams a lot over this.But the Lakme Mousse serves as a lip and cheek color which is a plus point.
I am quite tempted to get Blush Velvet and the Burgundy variant as well (trying quite hard to resist the temptation!)

Have you tired these yet? Which is your favourite color from the collection?
