Lakme 9 to 5 lipstick Dusk Sparkle

This is one of the Lipstick I got at time of my marriage last yr, I am generally not into these kind of shade mainly because of two reasons- first I am more into eye makeup so I always look out for some neutral or n*de shade.  Second I feel these kind of shade make me looks darker (no I don’t favor being gori gori but I want to look what I am really 😉 ). So for quite a long time I didn’t used this shade but in holi this year I wanted something dark for my lippy and then I thought why not try this. Read on to know whether I liked it or not



Lakme 9 to 5 lipstick Dusk Sparkle


Rs 550/-


You can see in the swatch below it’s more of brownish shade with little hint of pink and golden shimmer. It’s quite pigmented with multiple swatch you will get the more dense color.



I used this shade in emergency but got lots of compliment as it proved as total festive shade. Though it was little drying so I had to apply any lip balm underneath.

Below are the + points-

  1. It’s purely a festive shade.
  2. Good pigmentation
  3. Staying power is good though not 9 to 5 but yes it stayed good for about 5-6 hrs.
  4. Golden shimmers are not overpowering.

Below are – points-

  1. Dry out lips little bit.
  2. It’s very bold color not suitable for daily use and also it will look good on middle age and above women more.


Yes, if you are looking for some different kind of bold shade or festive shade.
