Lippie love : LAKME ENRICH LIP CRAYONS

HOLA!!Dear Readers💋💋

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.

LAKME ENRICH LIP CRAYONS

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.

SWATCHES
1. PINK BURST
2.RED STOP
3.BERRY RED
4.CANDID CORAL

1. Shade-01 Berry Red

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

SHADE02 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

SHADE O3 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

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.


FINAL VERDICT:

LIP SWATCHES

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.💁

Wearing my Mother’s Touch

Namastey !!

My first blog post ! I have all the feelings juxtaposed inside of me. I’m a nervous wreck but super happy and hopeful as this feels like my calling! I thought and thought time and again, tore many a pages from my diary. What should I write about in my first blog? Would it be impressive enough? Am I doing justice to the shoots? I’m already joining the band wagon pretty late! Will today’s learned readers have time & love for my work in their busy lives? In today’s fleeting world, will I have few loyal critics. All this was messing my head ,so I closed the diary, shut down the computer & went out for a stroll to clear my head. A breath of fresh air did real good to me. A sense of calm achieved, I realised that the first thing that brought me to setup my own blog was to have a place where I can be unapologetically me. I wanted to share my persona in the truest sense with the like-minded people. Then why these doubts? They have no place in mind.

So, here I am, pretty confident & transparent with my first fashion blog post. I bring to you what comes easily to me.

My momma has been the benchmark I always wanted to achieve. I’m her shadow and that’s who I want to be. So, the first garment I wanted to style on my blog

1. had to be something from my momma & my mommyland,
2. had to be a piece with Indian hand-work,
3. had to tell a story,
4. had to be my most favourite one,
5. had to be a style that reflected my persona.

So, I chose a Saree; my quintessential go-to traditional outfit forever. This one is a Kashmiri Pure Chinon fabric, a must-have in all wardrobes and trousseau’s of J&K women. A bottle green six yards of sheer elegance with mukaish hand-work (fardi, badla work of shiny dots on the fabric, though nawabi, lucknowi art form but zealously pursued in J&K), perfect for this season, neither too heavy nor too casual.

Currently my favourite and most prized possession, I had thrown a huge tantrum back then when momma gave me the news that she had given a Saree for dyeing and hand-work and that one day it would be a part of my wedding trousseau. I don’t know what got over me and I started finding faults with the choice of colour, work and the fact that if it was for me, then, I should have been the one to choose. To my surprise, when the final product arrived in my momma’s hand, and she unveiled it, I was AMAZED!! It was the perfect shade of green I liked, perfect amount of work and an easy-breezy light weight fabric. Nevertheless, I had to maintain my annoyed-daughter-face, and still looked for excuses to not approve of the Saree. Why do you think I was behaving the way I Was?

I tried to hurt my momma’s emotions that day of which I repent till date. I thought many a times then, that why I behaved the way I behaved. A teenage girl wouldn’t understand the complexities of her own growing self but today, that girl is a woman; her reflections more clearer, her emotions more sorted. Today I understand that the fact that, the word wedding trousseau triggered many unknown emotions inside me that day. The first one being, my momma is going to give me away one day. Rest were all excuses.

So folks, I have styled this important piece of my life in two ways.

First, I have styled this Saree with a plain magenta raw silk choli/crop-top; with an intention to make the look not so heavy and to let the Saree do all the talking. I embellished this look with silver metallic jewellery; a chunky peacock neck-piece, and lotus jhumkis. A smokey blackish-green eye makeup and pink lips; and let my hair the most natural way I keep. Also, for the cover shoot of my blog i styled this same look with a gorgeous pink and white double-shade stole of kasmiri aari work from my collection.

Silver lotus jhumkis. Sheer love
And that mole… my heart on my cheek

My second look comprises of the same Saree paired with a very quirky, trendy, urban white off-shoulders, bell-sleeved top with my most favourite mangoes print on it (mango being the king flavour of the season).

I embellished this bold look with a gorgeous metallic belt (my favourite accessory in my wardrobe) and continued to team it with the lotus jhumkis.I tied my hair in a basic bun and a satin clutch sling to complete the look.
