Chaos! Yes it has already created a chaos (or rather sensation) among the lipstick lovers. Before writing this review I found at least four women who took this “chaos” home. The name Red Chaos gives you an idea of it being a red lipstick but nope it’s not. It is a lovely red toned pink shade which I bet you can’t ignore among the newly launched 13 shades from Lakme 9 to 5 which are perfect for office wear
The shade Red Chaos is warm toned rose pink which is great for office wear. This shade can suit a lot of Indian girls. Also its quite pigmented. The rosiness goes away after a couple of hours and what remains is a brown pink tint. It is creamy matte so it glides smoothly on my lips. The cream texture definitely adds to the non-drying part and you can happily skip the lip balm before applying it. It looks creamy when freshly applied but settles to a matte finish which I just love! Love! The lipstick comes in a rosy metallic golden cute case which look really classy and not boring like the absolute range one.
Now the two things that bother me a lot. First is the strong fragrance. I don’t know why lakme lipsticks have this kind of strange scent that bothers my nose. Another is the staying power of the lipsticks. It wouldn’t have been a problem had they marketed it as a regular lipstick but they claim to last from 9 to 5 which is way exaggerated. I have two lipsticks from this range and neither of them stays for more than 4 hours. Lakme if you are reading this then kindly do something with the scent and staying power.
Anyways enough of my Blah! Blah! Here I am summarizing the total review.
You see..its not red but a rosy brown pink

VNA Rating: 3.75/5
Final thoughts: Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick Red Chaos is a very wearable rose pink with warm tones that would suit all Indian skin tones. Whatever be the cons but I found this 9 to 5 range the best among other Lakme lipsticks. These are affordable and come with a variety of shades. The texture is creamy matte which stays for good 3-4 hours..although not 9 to 5 as they claim!
