Hey all!

I was not much into lip liners earlier. But after having encountered with THIS amazing lip liner from Lakme, the game changed!

I loved Lakme’s 9 to 5 range in the past, especially their LIPSTICKS! So I did not think much before getting this liner in the shade ‘Brick Rose’ from the same range, knowing that it won’t disappoint me! And I was so right!!

What I say:

Similar to the lipsticks, the liner comes in a rose gold slim wooden pencil form which needs to be sharpened! The end tip of the pencil is color coded which makes the search easier. The transparent cap shuts tightly and protects the product from breakage.

Lakme’s 9 to 5 range is designed keeping the need of office going womens’ makeup need in mind! They are mostly about subtle shades suitable for office wear! The shade ‘Brick Rose’ is a beautiful warm toned brown which looks a perfect MLBB shade on my lips! It might show up deeper in color on duskier complexion.

Whatever Lakme claims about this product, are true to a great extent! Even though it is a subtle shade, the color pay-off is really good! I have slight pigmentation here and there on my lips. And this liner covers them beautifully, giving a nice neutral canvas for the lipsticks to show up their true color! The texture is very soft and blendable! Even without prepping, it glides so smoothly on the lips and distributes evenly. The finish is satiny matte which does not dry out lips! I found the texture of perfect definition liner ‘Go Grape’ a little on drier side. But this one is lovely!

I sometimes fill my lips completely with this liner and wear it as it is. This way it lasts for good 4+ hours. When I wear it underneath lipsticks as a base, it enhances the wear time of the lip color! There are some matte lipsticks which tend to dry out lips. In those cases, this liner acts as a nice barrier between the lips and the lipstick.

Quick Checkpoints:

Thumbs Up:
  • Great MLBB shade with intense pigmentation
  • Satiny matte texture which feels comfortable on the lips
  • Can be a great base for lip colors
  • Good staying power
  • Reasonably priced

Wearing 'Brick Rose' as an overall lip color !!

Thumbs Down:
  • The texture is really soft and needs to be sharpened frequently! It leads to some product wastage. I would have preferred twist up packaging.
Final Word:

Its a great liner which can be used in many ways! When I wear heavy eye makeup, I wear this as an overall lip color. And when I am in a mood to play with bold lip colors, I use this liner as a base to neutralize lip pigmentation!

Its one of my favorite Lakme products! Must try!!
