My experience with LAKME 9 to 5 Crease-less Lip Balm Rose Affair
LAKME 9 to 5 Creaseless Lip Balm comes in sleek box packaging. The tube of lip balm is made up of transparent tough plastic with a leakage proof and sturdy push up cap above. The tube can be opened in 2 ways. One, by pulling the cap and squeezing out the lip balm and second, when the lip balm gets stuck up in the bottle neck, it can be screwed and opened to get a big opening of the tube for easy extraction of the lip balm. You can also insert a lip brush inside through the big opening to apply the lip balm on the lips. 2 Options are provided by LAKME for it. The transparent pack of LAKME 9 to 5 Crease-less Lip Balm Rose Affair helps in getting a better view of the exact color of the lip balm and the level of it in the tube. The product packaging is very cute and sleek and can be carried in a small pouch too.
Consistency of LAKME 9 to 5 Crease-less Lip Balm Rose Affair is creamy and cocoa butter smell stays for sometime and later fades away. Initially I found it little irritating and once the smell faded away it was comfortable for me. The creamy texture of LAKME 9 to 5 Crease-less Lip Balm Rose Affair stays for quite a few hours and later the lip balm completely gets absorbed into the lips giving a smooth, soft and supple feeling. The lip balm has a butterscotch taste which I find little irritating, but you will get used to it on daily application. The lip balm claims are 100% true of being creaseless as it doesn’t settle between the lines of my lips. A very little amount of LAKME 9 to 5 Crease-less Lip Balm Rose Affair is required every time for complete coverage and hence it will run for an impressive life I feel. They have provided tiny shimmers that do not go overboard on application yet gives a rich n beautiful look to your lips.
I found it a bit expensive but LAKME 9 to 5 Crease-less Lip Balm Rose Affair is an absolute quality product. HUL has placed LAKME 9 to 5 in such a way that it is looked upon as a class cosmetic range that can help enhance the beauty of today’s modern working woman who not only can afford it but also can understand the value of this quality product.
To sum it up, I found the claims of LAKME 9 to 5 Creaseless Lip Balm being creaseless, non settling between the lines is true, also the lips became more hydrated, moisturized, soft and supple after usage. It doesn’t get transferred to cups and glasses but I felt the staying power could be better since 9 to 5 fails in this particular claim. A one time recommendation for one and all seeing the price.
