Recently Lakme has launched so many new products, especially lip products and weightless matte mousse lip & cheek stain range is one of them. I think my love for matte lipsticks is already known to you and I wanted to give these a try. So I picked the shade plum feather from this range.
Lakme says: 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 9to5 look.

My experience with Lakme 9to5 Mousse Lip & Cheek Color Plum Feather:
Lakme 9to5 weightless matte mousse lip and cheek color come in a round peach colored glossy tube with a glossy cap attached to it. The applicator is attached inside the cap and applicator is perfect for applying it on the lips. The tube further comes in an outer paper cover on which all the details are written. The cap is tight and makes it travel-friendly.
The shade plum feather is a gorgeous shade of plum with a hint of pink. It is a beautiful mixture of pink and plum. It is a shade that will suit every skin tone and complexion. Also, it is suitable for the festive season. The texture is soft and creamy which settles into a matte finish but I don’t feel uncomfortable after applying this on lips.
It has a mild floral smell and my nose didn’t find any problem with that. The pigmentation is good and it gives opaque color in just two swipes. More layering leads to patchiness. So, you should be careful before layering it multiple times on your lips. Staying power is also good, it stays on my lips for around 5 hours.
Okay, this is a two-in-one product and can be used as a cheek stain but sorry I don’t use this as a cheek stain. It is much pigmented and also the plum color is not very suitable to use as a cheek stain.
Pros of Lakme 9to5 Mousse Lip & Cheek Color Plum Feather:
- Travel-friendly packaging
- Applicator is perfect
- Smooth mousse like texture
- Glides on lips easily
- Settles into matte finish
- I didn’t find it very drying

Cons of Lakme 9to5 Mousse Lip & Cheek Color Plum Feather:
- Layering may make the color patchy

Overall I am happy with its performance as a lip stain. Also, the mousse like whipped texture is awesome and I recommend this to those who love matte lip colors like me.
