I am a massive online shopper. I love shopping online, because I find them extremely convenient and time saving. You get access to number of brands and also during online shopping you can also get some irresistible deals as well. Also, the product gets delivered to your doorstep. Isn’t that great? What more do you need?
But a bigger con of online shopping is that you might land with some raw deals as well. I mean you can go terribly wrong as well. Anyways that was all about my journey and experience with online shopping. I recently bought Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color : Coffee Lite and thus I have shared my journey about the product.

You need to twist the tube so that the wand comes out. The packaging is travel friendly and small in size and thus perfect for frequent touch ups.
My opinion about the product:
Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color: Coffee Lite has a slanted wand applicator. The wand applicator is quite convenient to be used. It is in the shape of a lip only. Thus, it is perfect even for beginners as well.
Coming to the shade coffee lite, it is truly by its name. The shade is lighter version of cocoa which is quite beautiful. When swatched on hands, the shade looks great but now is the ultimate catch. When applied on lips, then it is exactly my lips. Yes, I have dark and pigmented lips and the shade does not do anything to my face. It actually darkens my face.
Thus, I am back with my personal recommendation that try the lipstick in person and then only buy the shade. This shade is best for fair skin tones. This can be their perfect nude lipstick.
Coming to the texture, the lip stain is pretty comfortable. It is extremely smooth on lips and glides on very easily. The lip stains stay for a good amount of time and they are really matte and thus looks like a perfect office wear.
The lipstick will easily stay for 4-6 hours and goes away with oily food.
What I like about the product –
- Wide shade range.
- Matte finish.
- Lasts long .
- Very comfortable on lips.
What I didn’t like about the product –
- This shade didn’t suit me.
- Quantity less for the price paid.
Rating – 3/5
Will I re-purchase it? Yes, I might try other shades.
