Today I bring to you from my colourful world of 💄lipsticks, a few chosen ones to be reviewed.
👉Lakme India had launched its lip crayon some time back. However, initially I was not very inclined and when there was some buzz around it, I somehow never got a chance to grab those in my kitty until recently. I purchased them on a combo offer online which seemed like a good deal at the time.
Well, the lust for lippies is a never ending saga for most women like me! I hope you agree with me, if not then what cosmetic art you lust after the most? Do let me know for sure.
SO, I got down to usage of my 💋lip crayon collection and now I feel ready with my honest reviews and of course the much needed swatches, which while shopping online can be quite a dissuading thing as,same happened with me.
WELL, for review I have four shades in all out of 10 shades of pinks, peaches, reds and browns launched of LAKME ENRICHED LIP CRAYONS.
1. Shade-01 Berry Red
A FIERY SIREN DEEP RED PERFECT FOR THAT NIGHT PARTY OR THAT BLACK DRESS, OR EVEN FOR A CORPORATE FORMAL DINNER, A TYPICAL CLASSY BADASS COLOUR. WILL SUIT ALL SKIN TONES.
2. Shade-02 Red Stop
THIS IS A VERY DIFFERENT KIND OF RED. A LIGHT RED SHADE.CAN BE GOOD FOR A DAY OR NIGHT WEAR. WILL SUIT FAIR SKIN TONES BETTER.
3. Shade-03 Candid Coral
THIS SHADE IS A PEACHY ONE THAT ALMOST DOUBLES UPTO BE A VERY PRETTY SOBER ORANGE, PERFECT FOR THE DAY WEAR OR IF YOU WANNA HIGHLIGHT THE NEON TREND, CAN BE A GOOD ONE TO MIX SHADES AS WELL. ITS VERY CLOSE TO THE SHADE 02 RED STOPWILL SUIT WHEATISH SKIN TONES BEST
4. Shade-06 Pink Burst
THIS IS A SHOW STEALER AMONGST THE LOT. MY MOST FAVOURITE. I BOUGHT IT SEPARATELY FROM A DRUGSTORE BUT I’M THE HAPPIEST WITH THIS ONE. YOU CAN ASK WHAT’S SPECIAL ITS ANOTHER PINK. BUT I’LL ANSWER ITS THE PERFECT PINK WITH SHIMMER AND SHINE IN IT, IT GIVES A METALLIC EDGE TOO AND HAS THE MAUVE AND MAJENTA COMBO TONES. IT AT ONCE LIGHTENS UP THE LOOK AND BRIGHTENS UP ANY ATTIRE. YOU ARE SURE TO GET COMPLIMENTS.WILL SUIT ALL SKIN TONES.
Well to begin with
PACKING: These come in cute, playful sketching crayon packing that reminds us of drawing books and crayon coloured childhood.Very comfortable crayon pencils with black caps that come with a sharpener each.
TEXTURE: These crayons have a creamy, smooth gliding texture however, they do tend to crease up and show fine lines on the lips.
PAYOFF: It takes about 1-2 application to get the complete colour.
PIGMENTATION: The crayons are richly pigmented.
FRAGRANCE: They have a very mild gummy fragrance to them, a pleasant one.
PERFORMANCE: These crayon lippies stay at max upto 3 hours our so and then start bleeding and also, these colours do smudge and transfer easily.
BUDGET: Each crayon(with a sharpener) is of the MRP. Rs185/-. A Very budget friendly product and the quantity too worth its price.
REMOVAL: It comes off very easily, though can get messy while removing.Its highly recommended to remove it with a makeup remover or a face oil or oil cleanser.
I would recommend this product considering its value for money. Its not a great product but not a bad one either.
Its a must buy for people like me who do not use the product too much and end up getting bored or wasting the product to its expiry. These little crayons are a good deal. Also, I would highly recommend these to all the students and people who like to invest in affordable but trusted makeup. These one’s are sure deals for you.
🌻HOWEVER, a bit of caution choose wisely, as when buying online the swatches can get quite confusing, specially in the case of these crayons as the peaches to reds have a very similar colour tone and shade and are almost nearby in the shade range. The combo offer that I received had a trio of relatable colour shades as you can see above.
TIP: However,a little blogger advice.Donot forget to apply hydrating lip balms before applying these or any other lip colours.Also,do exfoliate your lips off and on with sugar granules at home OR a good lip scrub.
For the young 💁girlies out there, advice from personal learning. DO Stay away from cosmetics as long as you can as you are naturally endowed with everything beautiful at this growing stage of your life and if at all you do wanna go ahead… do so by all means but then make sure you do follow it up with a skincare routine either with mama’s home remedies or with only natural, organic and chemical free products so that you, your skin, beauty, heart and mind remain ever so happy and healthy till ages to come.
SO, LADIES I sure hope my reviews would be of some help for you or atleast a good read.
Would see you soon with more such stuff from the archives of my mental box.
TilL then Stay safe, stay 💪healthy and beautiful inside out💅.
MUCH ❤️LOVE CHAO XOXO! VASHI / THAT PASHMINA GIRL.💁
