Lip crayons are interesting and fun, especially for people like me who get bored by the usual twist-up bullet lipsticks. When Lip crayons were first introduced, I thought it was a dream come true. Tell me that I’m not the only one who loved looking at crayons and hoped that they would turn into lipsticks ? Anyway, Lakmé launched their new lip crayons a few weeks back and stole the hearts of many. I got myself the Shocking Pink variant to see if they are really worth the hype. So without further ado, let’s get to the review!
Packaging : The Lip crayons come in a tiny crayon-like, color coded packaging. The packaging is quite simple and has a black cap at the end which keeps the product in place. The lip crayon needs to be sharpened which wastes a lot of product. The packaging is travel friendly as well.
Shade : The shade Shocking Pink (07) is a lovely pink color with bright coral tones to it. It is the perfect color and would look amazing paired with neutral eyeshadows for a classy and bold look.
Pigmentation : The lip crayon is well-pigmented and just a couple of swipes of the product gets you a very opaque color.
Texture : The texture is very smooth and it ensures that it glides easily on the lips. The buttery formula ensures the lips feel soft and supple and helps in even application.
Staying power : The lip crayon stays on for about 3-4 hours but doesn’t survive meals. It starts fading away and eventually, it requires re-application.
- Smooth, buttery texture
- Vibrant pink color that would turn heads, for sure.
- Travel-friendly packaging.
- Easy on the pocket; a budget friendly choice
- Decent staying power.
- Needs to be sharpened, which wastes a lot of product.
Verdict : A+
Price : INR 185 for 2 g
Recommendation : Lakmé Enrich Lip Crayon in Shocking Pink is a lovely pink lip crayon. It is perfect for a bright, summery look and it adds just the perfect color to your lips. At the price it comes at, it’s practically a bargain! Definitely worth it!
