Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Liner Red Alert – Review, Swatches

Hey everyone, today I am going to review one of my currently favorite lip liner from Lakme’s 9 to 5 range. I bought this Lakme 9 to 5 lip liner in shade Red Alert, online from and I am loving it. I am not much in bold shades but red is my all time favorite.

Packaging : The lip liner comes in a rose gold wooden pencil packaging with transparent plastic cap. It comes with a colored end for easy identification of color.

My Experience : Red Alert is a beautiful deep red shade with blue undertones. Its creamy texture helps to glide smoothly onto lips without tugging. It is very soft but not crumbly and I don’t find any difficulty while sharpening it. It is highly pigmented and has excellent color pay-off. It gives full coverage in single stroke, even on pigmented lips. It has a tendency to settle in the fine lines, so make sure you exfoliate your lips properly before applying this lip liner.

I always use lip liners to shape my not so perfect lips and also to fill in the lips fully as a base for lipstick. It is such a pretty shade and I usually wear it alone as a lip color. It gives satiny matte finish and sometimes I use clear gloss on top of it for glossy look. It is hydrating enough and doesn’t make my lips dry or flaky. It stays on my lips for 4-5 hours when used on its own and wearing time can be increased by applying lipstick on top of it. Overall, I am liking this shade very much and already ordered Brick Rose shade. I think Lakme should add few more shades to the existing 6.
