This little sin caught my eyes and I was pretty excited to try recently launched Lakme lip and cheek matte mousse which solves dual purpose of blush and lipstick. Lakme has introduced tiny adorable product for all pretty working women. The lip and cheek mousse comes in 10 different shades but being a pink obsessed, this color was on my hit list. I ended up buying Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse in the shade Plum Feather which is a gorgeous shade crafted for both lips and cheek.
Product Name: Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Plum Feather Lip & Cheek Color
Price and quantity: I bought it atRs 575 for 9 g.
Ingredients: PVP/hexadecane copolymer, nylon powder, and cyclomethicon.
Shelf Life: 24 months from the date of manufacturing.
Swatch: I’ve added the lip and cheek swatch later below. Meanwhile, checkout the hand swipe for an idea on the shade.
Availability: I bought this product from the drugstore. It is easily available online and offline. You can avail best available online deals and buy it here on Amazon at a discounted price.
Claims: This new generation matte mousse feels incredibly weightless to wear all day, giving your lips a powdery matte finish and your cheeks a blush that completes your 9 to 5 look.
Packing and Appearance: The product comes in a beige color rectangular cover with all the instructions and brand name written. Inside there is a beige color cylindrical plastic tube with rose gold screw cap. What I dislike about that color code is not mentioned outside the box and I had to open the mousse to look for the particular shade.
When I opened the screw cap, a tilted petal shape wand is provided for application. The wand has pointed tip and hole in the middle for even distribution of color.
Checkout the Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Plum Feather Lip & Cheek Color lip swatch in the image below. You’ll love the shade if you’re a pink lover, like me.
The product has creamy and thick mousse texture which glides smoothly giving medium to full coverage on lips. Its highly pigmented formulae hides cracked lips and spreads evenly on lips.
It takes minimum 15 minutes to dry and after drying it does not transfer to objects. I have to wait at least 30 minutes for its drying. Plum feather is a bright pink color which gives very warm beautiful shade after 2-3 strokes.
Smell: The product has lovely smell of vanilla cake which last from 15 minutes to 1 hour. Smell lingers on and I feel like I am eating the whole vanilla cake.
My Experience: I bought this lip and check mousse few weeks ago but recently tried for a family function. I opened the cardboard box and take out the beige cylindrical tube. As I screw open the cap, the wand comes with beautiful bright pink color.
I applied it on to my lips and let it dry. Decent amount of color comes in the wand and I don’t find the need to dab again in the tube. The product feels light weight giving flawless matte finish. Pink color tone adds spark to my face and outfit.
I dab few dots on both side of my cheeks with the help of wand tip. I blend it with my fingertips for evenly distribution. I was happy with the pink shade that added shine to my face. This subtle pink blusher has become my favorite.
The product is highly pigmented and superb for the lips. Its super light, thick and creamy texture stays on for 5-6 hours but I need constant touch ups as per the need.
I really love its matte flawless finish. Each time I see myself in the mirror, I could not stop smiling. My cheeks blushed too! This product blends very well as a blusher.

Do I Recommend?
My lovelies should have this vivid pink color as a lipstick and blusher. You will be surprised at the perfect matte finish that makes you forget about all other matte lipsticks.
Overall Summary: The matte lipsticks are my weakness and this plum feather shade has all the goodness. The perfect finish of Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Plum Feather Lip & Cheek color with smooth, creamy, and thick texture makes you addicted. I need touch ups every 2 hours so staying power is less. Unless you all did not have dry lips, you can enjoy this shade daily.
