Hello Pumpkin Pies,
Hope the New Year is treating you well. How was your new years eve? Coming to the point, Nude lips have always appealed me but never did I have the courage to pull them off! Reason one: My lips are pigmented. Reason two: My lips are too plump. Reason three: I never found the perfect nude shade for my skin tone! I have always been a fan of the 9 to 5 lipstick range from Lakme as it offers quality, quantity and an array of shades to choose from! I came across Toffee Nexus through my cousin; she was rocking it in a picture and totally slaying it! So, I totally had to own this beauty even though I was a bit skeptical, I gave it a shot!

What the product says?: Say ‘No’ to touch ups with this perfect for office wear, Lakme 9 to 5 Matte Lip Color. Formulated with vitamin E and Wheat Germ Oil, this lip color nourishes your lips by retaining its moisture. Keeping your lips hydrated all day long, it gives you smooth, perky lips.
Ingredients: Phenyl Triemthicone,Polyethylene.
Packaging: The Lakme 9 to 5 lipsticks are elegantly packed in a rose gold packaging with the logo at the top of the cap, the middle part showcasing the brand name and the bottom pulling off the shade name ‘Toffee Nexus”.
Colour: The colour is a gorgeous peach toned pink; which looks different on every skin tone, it may appear rosy brown on some while on some it may look more peachy toned or a medium brown! Regardless, it is a lovely shade to own. Its a nude biased towards pink. On me, it looks like “my lips but better shade”. It has been my go to shade lately! its a beautiful nude to add to your collection!
Texture: The lipstick has a really smooth creamy texture! It glides on the lips effortlessly without being tugged or pulled at! I love the fact that it does not settle into fine lines! I always moisturize my lips prior for effortless lipstick application! The good part, it is a matte colour that doesn’t dry your lips out adding the goodness, it is super light! However, multiple application may cause the lipstick to settle into fine lines! Not a good sight!
Longevity: The 9 to 5 toffee nexus lipstick in my opinion is pretty long lasting considering the 9 to 5 claim it makes! It stays for a good 7 hours, it leaves a pretty tint while it begins to wash out!
Opacity: The best part about this lipstick us definitely its pigmentation! It covers my pigmented lips seamlessly and one swipe is all you need!
Mommy Verdict: I am head over heels in love with the Lakme 9 to 5 lipstick in ‘Toffee Nexus’ as it is the perfect everyday shade that every skin tone can pull off with ease! It looks Gorgeous with or without a lip liner beneath! Icing on the cake? Its long lasting , creamy and super affordable! Need more reasons? I recommend this shade to all you lovely women. Who knows?
